Lilac and Mint, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am pleased to announce that my poem, Plum Trees, 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.

Lilac and Mint

I walk toward the moon
lilac and mint waft through the night
a fragrance

bruising my heart, and
hard to define

it’s you…

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

#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 17: The Resurrection of Red, by Camellia

When was the last time
We turned the pages of our photo album?
Our memories changed colors,
Stripped of its blues, the red walked alone…
A haunting in lavender, the mountain shook
As our watery hearts created a world,
Trapped between latitudes and longitudes…
Emerald leaves, signed with secrets,
Flew in the wind…
I guess you were always like a quiet forest,
And I was the sun that shined through you,
Blinded by my own light…
Eyes closed, mind opened at last,
I surrender to your empty canopy…
Rise…


The Resurrection of Red was inspired by the poem Lavender Sheds. You can read more of Camellia’s poetry on Twitter here.


Submissions are still open for the Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow: 30 Poems in 30 Days Collaboration. The submission details are located here.
