rainbow trim

folded end over end, like a piece
of steel

with rainbow trim

a fascinating deluge of colors
vibrant and felt within

my heart

it beats to a steady rhythm, resonating…

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

stone colored glass, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am pleased to announce that my poem, stone colored glass, 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.

stone colored glass

I often think about the past
it’s like looking through stone colored glass

hazy, and filled with trauma, a cold place
inside my chest

lingering among flowers, thought and feeling

reconcile me…

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

petaled fragrances

my heart spills the seeds
of a thousand past lives

dwelling within the trauma
sitting

alongside

the love I feel for you, wishing

upon the night sky
we make do

with candles ensconced in petaled
fragrances

of pain, a dew

sitting upon the land and sea
it seems

extreme, yet
inside

I know

I’ll always continue to believe

wind chimes

a desolate street feeds
my dreams

with pain and hope both
don’t you know

it’s part of the mystery hidden
inside the love we show

to the sky, and to the people walking by
as we learn more about the lights glimmering in the night

they whisper of shadows long and tall
relational aspects of

our drawn out
souls

ready to depart this plane for another
on the winds of time

and the gentleness of the breeze
my grandmother’s wind chimes, speak to me

of tarnished tears shed over years and years

and of everything you and I hold dear


I’m excited to let you all know that my debut book manuscript is complete! I would like to thank Ingrid Wilson, from Experiments in Fiction, for many fabulous insights, and wonderful editing work. We are now on to book creation and cover design. Exciting!

voided wind, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, voided wind, 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.

voided wind

I stand at the precipice of the lost
where pieces of my skin

rotate back, and forth

within the voided wind
as my soul resonates

with the words that come…

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