Words Break on the Open Sea

Our words light up the broken sea. It floods our hearts, yet still we speak, and we are pulled relentlessly. From dusk till dawn our sounds carry. Like a ship breaking high wave’s peak, our words light up the broken sea. The squawks and squeals from these our beaks Add a strange hue to what … Continue reading Words Break on the Open Sea

Sometimes moments just stick out in our minds. Silly. Strange. Peaceful. Annoying. Expectant. No matter what they are, our minds choose them as important to remember.

Do Not Look

Lately I’ve had far too many different creative inspirations and projects going through my head nonstop. I’m loving it as well as a bit overwhelmed by it. Yet when it came to writing a poem for this week’s blog, I was struggling so much. I couldn’t focus. I didn’t like what I was writing. What … Continue reading Do Not Look

Around the Block

What Do You Do?

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. The twists, the turns, the lifts, the dives. It all comes at different speeds, at different levels, at different needs. Once you think you’ve caught your breath, you’re off again. A completely new adventure. Sometimes the water fills your lungs— your world turns dark. At others, your eyes … Continue reading What Do You Do?

Setting Goals

I think everyone knows the struggle of setting goals. Whether it be writing, exercise, reading, creating, or monetary goals, we can’t seem to stop ourselves from creating giant mile markers in our lives. We usually set the goals when we’re feeling on top of everything and ready to tackle the world, but we don’t often … Continue reading Setting Goals

White Colours

The golden hues and raging reds fill the skies before they’re dead. A vast blank page left laying out for everyone to see in doubt. When light seems bright but life seems gone, remember to look at the dawn, where the hidden growth shines deep below the snow, and the brown and orange give way to … Continue reading White Colours

Yellow Signs Rising

Yellow sun rising as a silken thread is spun through the air, through twists and turns, ups and downs, slides and glides. The words form slowly, gently. Their cursive leaves longing, turning circles round the room for the unspoken thoughts of smiles and glances. Yellow tides rising as a cotton yarn floats among unified breath, … Continue reading Yellow Signs Rising
