“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” – Mary Oliver
tentacles that crawl
invade life, hold the fragile
hostage and crush, crush
darkness to a deafening
silence; an abode for calm
Darkness is… for Poets United
On Writing and Living…
This week Rommy asks, “did you ever get a chance to hold something that you only imagined before?” By the way, she recently published a book of short stories. Check it out, and enjoy a moment in her fantasy world.
But to answer her question. I know that wonderful feeling with the publication of my first chapbook. It is surreal to finally hold in your hands a book you’ve poured heart and soul into.
And this dream is made possible by other kindred souls, who see your vision and help you accomplish it. I have many to thank.
But right now, I’d like to thank two special people (you know who you are). These kindred hearts brought a candle each to save a flickering flame that threatened a total blackout.
So, with their help, I’m happy to finally say my second chapbook, From the Depths of Darkness, is coming out soon. It’s been sweat and tears, literally, putting this one together.
