Hi friends, I’ve been busy reading, editing, and creating off-line lately but I’ll be back soon to read your delightful posts, poetry, stories, and art.

Woolen Blankets

feather-soft, I trail fingers through waters deep and wide reaching beneath the surface touch all the real places covered by your depths cupping my hands I taste, with greedy lips all the things you never say (are they for me, your words?) inexplicably, I know you, feel you verses weave and wend picking up the […]

The Release of Shame

When I was in high school, Jeremiah was my best friend. I lived the farthest away from that rural school than anyone else, over in the next town. Every school morning my mom would drive me the mile from our house to the elementary school to get on an elementary school bus which would drive […]

Hatch

Raining underneath REBLOG

Another gorgeous piece by Mark Ryan, one of my absolute favorite writers of all time. Underneath. Down here where it’s calm. Where the black beauty of the abyss touches my feet. All is quiet. All is still. I’m entombed as if in a coffin. Locked forever in my own space Controlling the promise of my […]
