Poetry has been to me a healer, a friend, and a guide.
Mary Oliver once said, "I did find the entire world in looking for something. But I got saved by poetry. And I got saved by the beauty of the world." I know what she means. I am saved by the beauty of language, of presence to a moment, and of attention to life every single morning. It's my hope you will find something here that will heal you, keep you company, and help light your path.
I do believe our hearts
want to be open to the world.
If you’re paying attention (& willing
to admit it), you’ll feel yours
asking to throw its doors open
and welcome life in.
