I am so pleased to share my haiku, Listen, has been published at Whispers and Echoes Magazine!
Whispers and Echoes is an online journal of short writing that cuts to the bone and offers an image as sure as our own in the mirror. I am honored to be part of this collective and extend my gratitude to Sami Cox, Editor, for her acceptance of my poetry.
I am writing a poetry book. This is a bold declaration.
My writing is inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia; my home, by lives I have yet to live, and by the pulse of the world as I know it. It is said a reader lives a thousand lifetimes but a reader can only live written lives. As a writer, I have lived or at least glimpsed enough lifetimes to last me my own.
It is a careful dance to put to words the timeless moments that enter most of our lives, to remember the moments of my own that make me whole, to make my heart. I was here. I am here.
I do not know yet the title of my book, nor how long it will be, but I write a new poem each day and know my writing holds a piece of me in it.
You too are all my inspiration; challenging me to see in new ways and admire the way the same words mean different things to different people. Thank you for sharing this life with me.
Now, as autumn sweeps the land and its colors encourage us to listen to the change in our world, I invite you to enjoy Listen; one of my perceptions of fall, and find your own.
Skipping stones the creek . . . please continue reading here and feel free to share your beautiful thoughts!
