Good news, first thing this morning! The upcoming anthology Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women notified me that my two pieces My Self Evolving and Loud, were selected! This highly anticipated anthology, edited by Gabriela Marie Milton (Short Prose) and published by Ingrid Wilson (Experiments in Fiction), debuts in early June 2022. I’m grateful they felt my thoughts spoke the message of this anthology—the power and boldness of strong women. Thank you so much, Gabriela and Ingrid.
Stay tuned for more information about its upcoming release!
Dusky rays dive into the depths of ocean to strip off the chores of a day Littered waves flown in aureate color wake up a star-studded sky
She is like a hurricane never try to tame her waves you will be blown away But reach for her eyes she will smile like a confetti and let you dance in the core
To the mind
Dear mind, I am never ever giving you up for you are pouring indefinite closeness I am never ever letting you go dull with time for you are pressed deep within my heart I will keep on writing for you and make you bloom like a euphoric moon as poetry is nothing but a POisEd TheRapY!
Petite petals of Bougainvillea, wild, pink, and purple adorning the silence of a season. She feels everything, but not heavy lying unappreciated on the ground she embroiders a cobblestoned street.
You’re the beautiful wilderness on fire
My love quotes are all about a single person, a clear crystal which is the Armour of my heart He came as a flutter into my soul and kissed my heart like an unending confetti He holds my hands and pulls me closer to him letting me crown his kingdom His adventures brush my lush storms intoxicating my hard and scrubby skin in his arms And at the edge of every naked hot hug, he whispers ‘you’re the beautiful wilderness on fire’.
