I’m excited to share that Decades Review has published my poem, “Waking Up Together,” in their second issue. You can read it there or here:
Waking Up Together
Barely awake, we float
across our bed like clouds
over undulating dunes
and valleys of lush loam.
Sleep-mist lifts over parched lips,
and our feet move like nomads
toward the warmth of each other.
Our most secret places
have buried their keys
inside the swirls of our fingerprints,
and we slip into each other’s hands
unopened letters carried by envoys
returning to their homeland.
My poem “The Light Within” is now up at Front Porch Review. As their website says, “a front porch is where we, young and old, congregate; where we assemble, gather, mingle, congeal, where we get together. And once there we speculate, pontificate, prevaricate, and expostulate; occasionally we speak words of universal truth.”
The Meadowland Review included my poem “Dragonfly” as part of their Fall 2011 issue. I’m proud of this poem, and glad to share it— and the rest of the issue is excellent. A PDF of the full issue is available, and “Dragonfly” is on page 5.
I’m pleased that Poetic Medicine is publishing my poem “Ghosts” as part of its New Voice series. Poetic Medicine shares one poem a day, from classic, established, and emerging voices— I’m honored to be among them.
