I am super excited to announce that my poem, Smolder Now and Forever, is now available at Spillwords Press. I big thank you to Dagmara K., and the whole team at Spillwords for publishing this poem, and for their continued support.

Smolder Now and Forever

gazing,
and praising
the reality
you see,

while
knowing
the broken
bits of ember
are aflame
again…

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

an ode as silently known

Photo by Koushik Pal on Unsplash

heart centered,
beating
strong,
while the body
begins
to break,
from the myriad
turmoil,
cast about
during the time
we’ve been drawn out

from
our misery

and
preoccupation
with all
life’s reasons

looking
for answers,
we search
high and low,
and,
ask everyone
we know

yet,
what
we get back
doesn’t portend
to all
we’ve been told

confusion
sets in,
and all at once
we lose our grin

and,
become grim

though,
as we hold
tight to the
knowing inside

we,
begin
to contemplate….

and,
inside
our heart’s
desire,
we find
the key, and
unlock
the mystery
of the self
that inspires,
and is made of fire

exhaling,
we regain
a loss
never so,
and, give thanks

as
our grin
returns,
we nod
our heads, and
thank
our hearts,

in an
ode
as silently known
