Hidden Inside, Published at Spillwords Press

I am excited to announce that my poem, Hidden Inside, 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.

Hidden Inside

I crumble like stone
into a void with no home

falling

I try to understand the pain
and trauma coming up

within a body and mind, a disease
no one can find

hidden

inside the elements of being
swimming upcurrent…

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

lavender lines, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, lavender lines, 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.

lavender lines

tumbleweeds thread the head of a pin

while the size of our love’s always been
reminiscent of the dreams laden in your hands

like the flavor of morning dew
know that I’ve always seen you…

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

the moon’s cusp

grass seed reminds me of
the inevitability

of time

skipping through fields, dusty
and wheat filled

as I grow through the earth’s crust, learning
I’m just enough

of the magic living inside the moon’s cusp

relating to me, another aspect
of the you

I see

it comes to me
while I lean into the garden of being

and transcend the pain I’ve been feeling

a gentle touch

passion lives in the wind
and in every pocket of your skin

just as magic resides
in our hearts and minds

Do you remember how it felt when kindness reigned the night?

love burned brighter than it’s ever been
caressing every tree limb

while dripping with a gentle touch
it’s just enough

to know you are there, and I am here

waiting upon your kiss carried on the wind
like seeds floating through the atmosphere

the membrane between you and I becomes thin
