of the rain

FREE WRITING

i am a looming cumulonimbus
thundering voice, lightning epiphanies,
gray skies with hidden energy behind.
the sunlight hits heavy on your eyes,
i am stratus to ease your irises.
perfumed with petrichor,
dripping hair like willow branches drooping,
sunsets bring my fury,
rising to the rhythm of rain
as i echo my anger across this valley.
my lightning withers,
but rain makes flowers grow

Forgotten Dreams

FREE WRITING

on the outside, it may have looked like art for art's sake
but I am on the inside
I feel myself echoing through these cave walls
ages ago, someone stood here, where I am now,
charcoal etched in intricate shapes,
infallible meaning behind it.
someone stood here, reaching high to finish the details
of something long gone.
maybe they had help,
maybe not,
but I know that,
though they said it was for art's sake,
they knew inside their soul ...

one people, one world, one life

FREE WRITING

when worlds collide,
when two strangers' eyes wander
and somehow connect.
the fundamental music of humanity
in an accidental duet
for a moment their souls,
laid out in the open,
spill their secrets to the world
but only for the world behind
that stranger's eyes.

sweeter still, than a mother's love
is love abounding for all people, everywhere.
love like that is a choice,
and choosing to look past what this stranger could have done
while looking into their eyes, ...

Lonely Soliloquy

FREE WRITING

sometimes, I feel alone.
echoing through an empty theater, trying to fall on unheeding ears.
there's already a knife in my throat, no need to twist it.
it hurts that this is the place I feel almost whole,
because I've felt the most lonely moments of my life here too.
when I was crying in the service,
feeling the immense shaking relief that I was finally there,
not around the suffocating pressure of family,
and none of you, sitting next...

15

PROMPT: [Insert Age]

15 is supposed to be teenage love,
blurry polaroids and learning to drive,
getting a job and failing math class.
15 is supposed to be making plans.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What college do you want to go to?
Where are you going to work?

But for me, 15 is falling.
15 is expanding in all directions, 
changing my mind,
aiming for the stars and landing in the stratosphere.
15 is growing.
Reach for...

My Morning Yoga

PROMPT: September Grab Bag

  • a poem that shines a new light on something common/mundane. (Ismasura)

When I roll out my yoga mat in the mornings,
And slide into Eka Pada Rajakapotasana,
The early rose-amber light shines through my window,
Bouncing off the clouds in the sky,
I can't help but sigh
As the enormity of being small washes over me
Like a rushing waterfall.

awake in the late,
late hours of night
lie in wait
for feelings to abate.
you're all I want,
all I want is to be free
be me
but who is me
if I change every day?
I want to be her,
I want to touch her hair;
I want to be him,
I want his even figure,
I want his chest on mine,
I want his body for my own,
or as myself?
I talk to you in my...
