sanguine love

emotions fill the sky
and my heart

with sanguine love
a pain, like an albatross

of hope and dismay
conjuring various realities

in some
I’m filled with anticipation
while in others

dread
is a constant companion

yet, it’s in between them both
where
a mystery comes up

from the shallow river water, to the ice caps
of the tallest mountain
tops

the shadowed, and shaded land
where the push, and pull of life’s paradoxes

gives each of us a welcoming hand

deep down

pain and trauma dwell within trees
just like they do

in you and me, a casual
acquaintance

made from the threads of the breeze

Can you see that we’ve always been, and will always be
part of the same stream?

then, why, I wonder, do we treat nature
differently

estranged and placated
we push away connections

deemed unnecessary

only they are, in fact
a comisc part

of a grand narrative, the seen and unseen
and everything

deep down

we believe ourselves to be

indigo fields

I like to live underneath the trees
they satisfy me, and

my sensibility

of the known and unknown

Did you know that around every corner a bend is shown?

among the flowers, long and tall
as they, to me, draw

nearer, and

for the first time in life
a kaleidoscope of colors becomes clearer

purples and pinks always delight
while amber hues, and the relational aspects

of the indigo fields
speak to me of a love

lingering

in the shadows
awaiting its time to shine

upon you and I

The Seas Adoration, Published at Spillwords Press

I am excited to announce that my poem, The Seas Adoration, is now available at Spillwords Press. A big thank you to Dagmara K., and the whole team at Spillwords for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

The Seas Adoration

sitting on the shore of lore, I nestle
into the salt and stone

vibrating all alone

while listening
to the wind whistle strawberry tunes

as birds carry blueberry hues
in a sky…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
