I have also decide to start talking a little bit more about the poems that get published. Just to provide a little more insight into the creative process. So please read the poem first! It is always important to experience any form of art with as little influence as possible.

The Sun Teeters

This may be a short poem, but for me it represents a couple different ideas. At its base, it is simply a poem about changing seasons and how our days shift around the solstices. Our days grow longer or shorter depending on the year. One of the main concepts to take away from this poem is our relationship to change. The sun teeters, as if it is hesitant to change, in my mind this is because it fears the coming of the long night. It has been growing in strength, but now it must give way to the next cycle. It also knows that it must continue, as that is its purpose.

Thank you again to Prolific Press for all your continued support and thank you to those who inspire me to keep on writing.

New Poem – Crimson skies glow bright

Thank you Tanka Journal for including my poem in your collection. It is always fun to try writing in a different style of poetry as it challenges you to think differently about what you are writing. The tanka style originates in Japan and it was often used as a short form way to send a message that expresses romance, desire or gratitude. If you want to learn more about this style click here.

Fire and Sky Book Launch

On Saturday night, I had the amazing opportunity to share the stage with some amazing poets and raise money for a good cause. Thank you to David Brydges for putting together an amazing collection of poems and finding a space for us to share our voices. Also a big thank you to Suzanne Hunter, Cassy Welburn and Kathy Fisher for your beautiful poems and making me feel so welcome when I was so nervous. Thank you to Moyo Williams whose music accompanied the poetry, he is an old soul in the body of an 11 year old. Thank you to Contemporary Calgary for giving us a space for the launch. Finally thank you to Robyn Gilli for sharing her experience with the fire and the Red Cross for all their hard work up North in helping with the recovery effort. It was an amazing night and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to share my work with friends and family.
