I am proud to share three of my micro poems, Change, Strength, and Benevolence, are published in The Sound of Brilliance anthology!
Curated by Susi Bocks of I Write Her, the anthology brings together the best of the best from the past year of featured writing on The Short Of It, Susi’s online poetic journal where creative thought is given a place to shine.
I extend my gratitude to Susi for curating and nourishing this project and providing a beautiful way for writers to hold their writing in their hands. Thank you!
The Sound of Brilliance speaks to me in both word and cover. The heron is a regal and beautiful bird, worthy of more than poetic thought. I often see great blue herons along my Irish Creek fishing for rainbow trout or dallying along the more-distant South River, but every glimpse at these painted creatures never dulls the lift my heart.
I do not know where the road will take me. By walking the side cuts and long routes and by exploring both the left and right turns, I will go to more than one brilliant city through word, travel, and conversation and speak of my imprint for others to discover.
Walk beyond the straight and narrow. All around you walk those in divergence.
The following is an excerpt of my poem, Change.
Alone in the dark
She waited for the door to
Open unsure of
What stood on the other side . . .
I invite you to enjoy The Sound of Brilliance and cherish “your humanity in written form”. If you are so called, The Sound of Brilliance is available through Amazon here.
If you wish to delve deeper yet still, Susi is sharing some lovely and interesting interviews with many of the poets from this anthology on her YouTube Channel. Whilst I regret my current inability to partake in an interview, there are many voices worth discovering!
