With Valentine's Day just two weeks away, I thought it would only be fitting to share one of my favorite love poems from Poems About You. Granted, I may be a little biased, but it's hard to go wrong with any of the poems in that collection. They're all centered around themes of love, which … Continue reading Poetry Post | Blush (from “Poems About You”)
Two weeks ago I made a pretty big announcement concerning an upcoming project I've been working on and keeping to myself for most of this year. If you haven't been following my updates very closely—you can fix that by giving me a follow on Facebook and Instagram—then you probably don't know that I'm publishing another book! You … Continue reading Poems About Who?
Lately? I’ve been living on a raft, waterlogged pieces of driftwood tied together by the frayed rope I found in the garage of my last temporary home— the home I thought would be my last temporary home. I feel like if I make one wrong move I’ll lose my balance and fall into the never-ending … Continue reading Lately?

This poem is written a little bit differently than the first few I uploaded to the blog in celebration of National Poetry Month. I wrote this poem entirely inspired by cut our words from a handful of old magazines. This was actually a fairly challenging process, especially considering I'd never done anything like this before, … Continue reading Pieces of Love
starts with a mimosa, or two, orange for me, something new each time for you pair it beautifully with eggs and lox while we sit on the porch of our favorite brunch place loosing memories of when the days were cold and we were alone because none of that matters now in this company day … Continue reading Day Drinking
Wonder. And Friendship. With just a hint of Indecision. Okay, maybe a little bit more than "just a hint," but we can't all be Certain. I'm rarely ever certain of anything. I spend my days in front of a screen— writing and scrolling and asking myself if this is really what I want to be … Continue reading My Name Is…
Happy National Poetry Month! You heard right—it's National Poetry Month and that means a full month of celebrating one of my favorite art forms! Before becoming such a big poetry lover, I didn't even know there were so many different types of poetry. I had kind of written poetry off as "boring" or "not for … Continue reading My Poetry Inspirations
