    She Flirted With Life

    She Flirted With Life

    She flirted with life
    and life flirted right back with her,
    as if all the universe
    came more alive
    just for her
    and everything felt her glow.
    It was
    in the dew
    in the stars
    and the colors of the sky—
    they all shone
    bright as they could
    in the hopes
    to catch her eye.

    We Ran From Beach Clubs

    We Ran From Beach Clubs

    We ran from beach clubs
    in rain showers
    drinking champagne from bottles
    jumping into pools in our clothes
    and kissing under lightning,
    we yelled promises
    in thunderclaps
    to never grow old—
    and I fell in love
    with you
    and the absolute certainty
    it all would last forever.

    I Want To Know Every Part Of You

    I Want To Know Every Part Of You

    I want to know
    every part of you,
    every scar,
    every bruise,
    I want to trace the map of you,
    my fingers a compass,
    your freckles the constellations
    which in my heart I will chart
    so when I close my eyes
    I’ll have you in my stars forever.

    There We Were Making Rhythms

    There We Were Making Rhythms

    There we were making rhythms
    Jumping ahead of Earth’s own heartbeat
    Setting new times to our universe
    And we drank it in like warming wine
    We the children
    Running to deserts
    Pockets full of magic
    With whiskey spirits in our souls and our wings
    Us few the bold
    The brave trodden souls
    Tobacco stinging bright our gypsie eyes
    Kaleidoscopes reaching fingers through our minds
    To stir our colored dreams
    Our dusty hearts set aflame
    By setting stars and shooting suns
    And here the sparks become our loves
    And so with them we danced up
    Into airless skies and cloudless nights
    To make ash angels on moons
    And snowflakes of Milky Ways

Stunning!

My niece met you in Calgary, Alberta last year and shared her story with you. She loves your work and so do I! Your work gets my niece through her toughest days and she’s really struggling right now. So thank you for being someone she can look up to when she can lift her own head. Truly beautiful and inspirational!

You remind me of the dreams I’ve forgotten and the feelings I’ve felt when I felt these memories

I’m in love when I hear your words

So Much Yes!

I have been listening to the podcast for awhile now... so calming. It’s been a sort of meditation for me. I just listened to last Sunday’s episode (127)“My Sweet Darling”, the first episode in the weekly theme DARKNESS. Probably my favourite yet! All three poems are so profound and beautiful. Thank you! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
