I am pleased to announce that my poem, Gumdrops and Glitter, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. Thank you to Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support and for publishing this piece.
Gumdrops and Glitter
the sea rises over my heart while I lean into love
like a fairytale, made up of gumdrops and glitter, which never stops
enticing the senses
even with a skewed perspective…
I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
It washed up on the shore, she said it would one day evermore; we last were together, when the sun was still shining down so bright, and the blight we see now, wasn’t even a memory, nor in sight.
So much has changed, yet it all is really still the same underneath, when you take a peek to see what’s really there, you’ll find that it’s the same as before, only the conditions in the phenomena have transformed.
There’s still light by day, and dark when it is night. And, yes, things still show up on the shore, when a loved one last kissed you on the cheek, and said, wait, I’ll be there in the morn.
And, indeed, they were, with a bundle of lights. Though you’ve always known the light they carry inside, is the might of the everlasting sprite.
In response to the WDYS #77 prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.
