"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

Twig













Oh
God
bless this
swollen bud
barely plump
but surely alive
birthed from
this bare
dead
twig
this
vert-
ical
truth
a sign
that
says
good
will
come
yes so
many
good
things
will
come

  1. This one is so hopeful. I need this one more than the one about onions or weeds or any of the others. I just need to keep thinking about all the life in the little bud that was once a little stick that will come out. And it will. Thank you for reminding me.
