Glowing Sunrise, Published at Spillwords Press

I am excited to announce that my poem, Glowing Sunrise 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.

Glowing Sunrise

one, two, and three
are the stars
I count in the sky

there are so many more though…

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

heart strong

the pale
and lambent sky
is dried

and full of mist

swirling in colors, made of notes
a song

adrift

in the east
where my heart is strong
and just enough

with you

the music of my life
and my one and only love

the tide

tired, and wanting to know
more

I cast my heart into the sea
and watch

as it stares back at me

winking, like the stars in the sky
making me realize

every ounce of the love we carry inside
belongs to the tide

rose sky

roses fill the sky
with the fragrance of the tide

as petals sing to the moon
under the canopy of our afternoon

know

there’s always been a piece of me in you

a mirror or two
reflects back our love

while we climb the ladder of chaos

still embossed
with an evening of frost

as we set off
on a journey to reclaim our love lost

the blue

the sky’s canopy lives in my mind,
restless at any given moment,
yet with the blue
contained
inside
of

this torment, transformation occurs, giving
way to stars that line my veins,
and suns that linger
inside
my

eyes for days

it is
the nature
of life’s canopy
on display

within the heart of you and I, if
we learn to love the pain,
and give it
away

while refreshing ourselves in the sun and stars
of another day…
