  • An Opened Door (part two)

  • Where Poets Come From (part two)

    So to conclude this matter, poets come from the deer prancing through the meadow, or the flower blooming in the field. Though many flowers may be blooming with it, there is no telling which of them will be picked. Poets can come from the sky, or even f...

    No longer will I be at your beck and call. It’s time for me to let go. My heart breaks at this decision. But it’s not a choice I have. I have been waiting and waiting, serving you with all my energy. Never complaining, never tiring. Yet, al...
