April is National Poetry Month!!! Definitely something close to my heart. Though I’ve stepped away from a career in it, I will never – NEVER – regret pursuing poetry all throughout college.  As a result, I’ve found it’s  not just the practice of writing – it’s a way of looking at the world that I’m forever grateful to have spent the time honing.

enjoy my favorite, so simple and complex, the one that had me hooked for good, and the latest piece I’ve written.

‘Blue’

A row of shelves hides a wall and a door here. They are all blue,…  Read More
just blue.

I wonder if you and I would ever paint a wall together, and a door.
Take one color and paint it all, even the hinges and the knob.

And then each other, clothes and all.
Just to put some color on history, not to change it, but to look

at it together and remember what we did to see
over what we cannot see.

-Peter Streckfus

‘This Is Just To Say’

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

-William Carlos Williams

'Interlude #5'

Maybe if I rise
I'll see the dreams fading
to smoke and mirrors,
and maybe your mirage
won't call this void home,
will let me sleep.

Because I watch the sun crest
over the steepest hill
wait for my strength, 
my chance 
to align.

For now I watch your impression,
our wrinkled fabric.
Watch the passing haze,
shadows buoyant in morning,
yesterday's truth sloping to periphery.
