Poems From the Heart (Examples)

Responding to @RealisticPoetry

In response to a Twitter request:


I have held women for one night

I have held women for one night,
no longer,
never loved
and loved them forever.
Held them so tight,
so breathlessly tight,
for fear they would let me go.
Walked one million miles to touch the sun
all the while surrounded by shadows,
fearing to feel that fire on my face
And wept, Jonah in the belly of my own whale.


I went to places

I went to places after you passed.
Places we walked
Needing to find you there.
Footprints in the sand,
Footprints in the snow.

A whisper of your words to me
     explaining tides
Or a nod, another question
     as we told each other stories about the tracks small animals made.

{We came from different worlds
     and made them one.}


The Mouse

Tiny little paws
grasping at a seed
nibbling away
to fill her breasts
to feed her pups
to insure she is remembered
in mouse dreams
when the future becomes the past.

Apr 2018 (and a little May) Author Interview Plunge Schedule

From Spoken Word Artistry to Mayhem Among Us Coming in April’s Author Plunges

Yo!

Hooray for us, we’re finishing up month 3 of Author Interview Plunges and here I’ll share what’s coming up in April and the start of May 2018. But before that, are you a published author who’d like to be interviewed for our series? Easy to do.

April 2018 is going to be an exciting month for Author Interview Plungophiles. We start with being lulled by spoken word artist Danielle Duncan and then spend the rest of the month (and into early May!) dodging bullets, fighting terrorists and avoiding international nastiness.
