why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

remember me #2


My last post contained lines from the first of a pair; so here are some lines from the second of the pair, “remember me”:

#2

I remember
the bread
the wine
on my tongue

when birds sing my morning


when my horizon crackles fire colors

every time I breathe rain

on my tongue
the wine
the bread
I remember
