It’s been while! Hi WordPress!

I finally published a poetry zine titles, “Love Poems to Get You Through the Dating Apocalypse.” I’m not selling this one online at the moment. Going through the Artists Way and feeling inspired again already, even painted the other day.

Here’s a fable-poem I wrote which was inspired by the transformative magical powers of water:

Her wounds run deep.

As she stares at her reflection

In river’s body, her tears

Fall into the stream,

Transforming into freshwater pearls- so rare, so precious,

Maintaining their purity.

Yet the girl is blind

To their beauty,

Only able to see the darkness beneath the foamy edges

So she retreats

Placing the pearls back

Into their clam, clasped

Until the comforts of water

Put them back into the shore

Like a pirate’s lost treasure,

Found and adored.
