Blood Sky, 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.

Blood Sky

I sit with my mind
realizing

the names and forms

dawning
like the sun, were given to me
as a child

conditioning for sale…

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

rainbow sky

I spell your name
through the stars in the sky
and

with the love
in my

heart

a special place
of hope, and trust

and a single point of light
caressing

the trauma and pain

an allegory, saved
from past days

when your kiss was a rainbow
in the sky

and your embrace filled me with
love

now gone by

moon arises

the moon arises, like my heart
beating with the tide

I rely
on the mist in my eyes

relating
the misery of humankind
and

the stories we disrupt in the night

blood and dust

residing in the night
are you

always there, steadfast
through your heart of care

I write from my soul
to share

a thought

built out of love, trust
and a common ground forged

through blood and dust

a reminiscence, like the sultry
taste of your skin

delivered
over the many years spent apart

drifting

like the sea again
I find you, the sky within

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
