... My old Maltese drags along his weak back limbs
his tail follows
at her doorstep, the overweight lady
tries to reach for her toes
as if to prove to herself
that bending over is a memory of the past...
Dear Mother Earth,
I want to apologize for what we’ve done to you; for the way humanity has used your wealth and beauty for their own gain and left you with nothing but poisoned air and dying life. We...
the tulips are out again in the valley,
of people like bees with vibrant petals, whole fields turned yellow, red, purple.

I don’t trust colors.
The way they dance and shiver
in the morning dew, curling
around the bricks in the pavement
as they try to break through my peripheral—
they must be up to something.
To scream in...
I learned compassion for animals at an early age.
Saving baby birds who fell out of their nest near my bedroom window and were lucky enough to land on a pile of leaves in the driveway.
Not all of them...
The seeds of the tree I’m about to become planted
Anxiously waiting for the first sprout
For the roots to come about
For the first green leaf
The relief of knowing summer is to come
My height, ...
The leaves are soaked by the sun. We are open. I forgot what words tasted like. What are rainbows? Are they our imagination
Are the colors our lives? If they are our lives, Then I must be indigo. I th...
We wish upon stars we know wont work.
We believe in things we know aren't there,
just to believe in something.
And we make something out of nothing, like constellations in the sky. But what if there w...
Often he is seen as the harbinger of fear in the eyes of the people who see him - a solemn cloud, stalking
the heavens above, his shadowed eyes always watching for a next meal to sate his ravenous hun...
Umbratic visage, how she basks in her
aerial throne with a queen’s vainglory - yet her pride is well-earned, for she is
an artist among the unjudging clouds, her ebony feathers cascading to fleck the ...
snowcapped majesty, how he cleaves through the wind
with an icelike demeanor—stoic and proud, fearless -
it isn’t hard to see why the eagle is the symbol of
freedom, for who else but he, with his gaze...
The trees are bare this time of year
On the porch, having a cigarette
I could be drunk,
the drink plays tricks
The Earth is fake with its plastic grass
A woman rushes to her car
The moon has conquered...
Shaken in the silence,
Shoved in the absence,
A hollow bird flies in.
He kisses her lips,
Whatever shall she do?
A taste of black honey.
The skin crawls across the floor.
A room with a stolen cradle,
Take me to a place
Where I will have peace
No thoughts of anger, fear, or depression
So I can breathe
Count to three
Inhale and Exhale
Relax like you're laying on a hammock Swingin gently left and rig...
Stars die, yet shine brightly across the darkest regions of space, Their light travelling across eternity, To the very sparkles that shine our night sky, That guide the ships on their journeys home, T...
Speckled with playful pinpricks
Of brilliant white light
Full moon majesty
Hangs heavy, while startled sky
Blinks in glaring light
Deep black silhouettes
Barely catch the bold moon rays
A world wonder on its own.
Its beauty being captured by many on a daily basis.
The breathtaking sight of a sunrise or sunset. The smell of blooming roses in a garden of an old lady. How can so...
I walked beneath,
a sky as blue,
as the deep blue sea,
as blue as sparkling sapphires,
while the sun brightly smiles down.
My feet kept,
upon the path,
to see that I didn’t,
trample upon the bright,
