If you like this post, then you really should listen to the audio first.

My latest poem was written for a friend. Listen on Soundcloud or read the poem below.

Don’t be sad my friend
Let the sky be blue instead of you
Let the sun warm your skin
Let the wind blow your fears away
Let the rain wash your soul clean
Let the earth touch your feet
Breathe again
And again…and again…and again
You are loved
You are strong
But most of all know this
You are still here

 

Out of my comfort zone…Dragon Poet Review

Lately I’ve been doing my best to take a few extra steps to promote my work and my words. I’ve been painting in the garage where anyone driving or walking by can see me. I’ve been more open about how I really feel about things. I even did a spoken word piece today…and I think I’ll do more soon. But the coolest part is I actually submitted some of my work (poetry and art) to Dragon Poet Review for their summer issue. The deadline is May 1. Took me long enough to get up the gumption, but I did it.
