It’s funny, I had a dream last night and while I can’t remember much of it, I remember a part of it where I was cleaning the dirt off a load of patio tiles, disposing of weeds and dirt, and revealing patterns etched into the tiles themselves.

It’s National Poetry Month this month, and Camp National Novel Writing Month, so I decided I’d try to write a poem each day for the month of April.

But I’m back now, and this week’s poem is sort of still in line with what I felt last week. That summer is ending, and Autumn is beginning. … More Poem of the Week: Season’s Turn
This week’s poem is probably a mixture of things. Just under a year ago I had a terrible time with my mental health. I was scared to go out the house, woke up every morning absolutely terrified, and my anxieties were so high it was difficult to even sit still for more than half an hour. … More Poem of the Week: Changes
This poem was inspired by a song, but also a little on how I’ve been feeling lately. The song is a new one I’ve discovered, called Paper Planes by Elina. I recommend you check it out. It’s a beautiful, lyrical piece of music, inspiring and melodic. … More Poem of the Week: Castles in the Air
