Alliterating in April

  New beginnings, fresh sheets of paper, unused ink, words yet to be written, seeds waiting to be scattered, blooms in the heart. National Poetry Month is a month for poets to come out of hiding— out of stuffy libraries, out of book-riddled bedrooms, out of tiny offices.  It’s when we gather over cups ofContinue reading “Alliterating in April”

The point of the point

Does it feel as though the year started without you and now you’re desperately trying to catch up? Does it feel like you’re going somewhere fast but  you’re not sure where?

Nestling into November

Stubborn leaves are still clinging to branches. It doesn’t feel as if winter has arrived, but there is a whisper in the air- a reminder that once the leaves fade and fall, snow will hang heavy on these branches. When the weather gets colder, I find myself wanting to retreat into the warmth of myContinue reading “Nestling into November”
