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.

indigo beach

I posted three lines from “indigo beach” on 4 September 2019.  The short poem was published this year in Heron Clan VII, so here’s the entire short:


indigo beach

 

my sand-washed mind

moon dominated

it flows

it ebbs

tides mute my thought

 

there’s an indigo streak embedded in my night

it lures my twilight

it blinds my stars
