I walk, and watch
a time of trees
and of the silences that speaks
and of the memories
by the gravestone
etched with the blood of
a time of desperation
and of sorrow
dwelling in hearts
beating in sync with lost
with the cosmic qualities
of our lives

We Are Poetry: Lessons I Didn’t Learn in a Textbook, by Kym Gordon Moore
I was elated to receive Kym Gordon Moore’s new book about a month ago, and though I’ve only read a few selected chapters thus far, I can write here that it is an amazing read. Here is an example:
“They say I am nothing
in my someone-ness
traverse into a flow
of the seen but not heard
nonexistent, divisible where liberty is not just
not considered worthy to speak,
or to be respected
just an invisible occupation of space,
you think that of me
yet my existence is more
than the archives of silence
Refusing to conform […]”
Absolutely stunning. If you’ve not yet picked up a copy of this amazing book, you can do so here.
Update on Me
It was great to catch up with many of you last night. I am doing very well, and enjoying the travels. There is so much beauty in the world, and it is a privilege, and a joy to get out and see it.
Today, I am off to see Justin, which will be a lot of fun. We will do some shopping, and farmer’s marketing on Sunday, and then we are going to see the Portland Trailblazers on Sunday night. I’ve not been to an event of this size in years, thus I’m filled with excitement and some anxiety. Very normal.
I look forward to catching up with all of you again next weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend, and upcoming week.
All my love and blessings,
