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.

black ice


The following poem was published in the Heron Clan VI anthology:

black ice

my winter
harsh
holds me captive

black ice
camouflages
my daffodils

thirst sparks my thaw
pardon prods my frosty debris
mercy loves me more than I despise myself
