I am so pleased to announce that my poem, poplar seed, 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.

poplar seed

the apple orchard
lives along the shadows
of a love that lingers

sometimes in the gallows

of a destiny told to me
once upon a story made…

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

a moonbeam…

desires encapsulate me like the moon,
as inside my being I swoon,
looking to the sky,
watching the

moon
go
by

as clouds filter through
the darkness,
the shadow of which
becomes the
hardest

to recognize

it is the mirrored
reflection I see, when
dancing with the trees

and
becoming
more than
one dreamed

until the last particle of
my being is seen…

and, love is blossomed in-between
the rivers full of life,
and me

a moonbeam…

with all their scars, Published at Spillwords Press

I am super excited to announce that my poem, with all their scars, 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.

with all their scars

they say, life
is a performance
of sorts, played out
on the background of
perceived solidity

young children,
learning quickly…

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

an afternoon under the sun…

I walked through the door once, and into a different land
entirely, sky full of blood, torn in two, it was
a wonder
to feel
the
loss at the center of the vacuum…

thoughts racing, with a heart rendering love, an afterglow
cast,
inside my
chest breathing
fast, and then,
in from the gloom

came you, sure-footed, with a love the size of the moon,
dispelling the shadows in heart and mind,
you did always remind me

of the aliveness
living inside of moments
won

as great clarity did come, and you and I settled in
for an
afternoon
under the sun…
