Hey kids, I’m getting things ready to format the upcoming (and much delayed) “Beautiful Twist” Anthology. A big thank you to the contributors who’ve been so patient and understanding as I navigated through the complexities of compiling all of the different works coming in. I’ve been fortunate this year but also very busy. Preemptive release date for the anthology will be July 2023. Here’s a little smackerel of poetry.
When Last Did You Sit In Silence?
When last did you sit in silence only the oceanic rush of your own breath filling the tide pools of your lungs drawing back out into the world When last did you sit in silence and feel the crushing weight of a world decimated in human destruction and did you wonder how much better it could be without your clumsy footfalls your grunting breaths and dripping sweat as you toil to leave behind the reckless hurtful fire of man behind Didn't you feel so small? When last did you sit in silence a speck below a billion stars and feel the unbearable lightness of being insignificant the silence a reassured shush of our mother reminding you that you are just a moment a stardust burst in a vastness that will soon forget you if it ever knew you at all Doesn't it make you feel so small? When last did you sit in silence and feel this freedom?
