Newsletter

I’m interested in writing within the tensions of our humanity, holding space for the both and: our joy and our grief, beauty and brokenness, courage and fear, celebration and rage, and everything in between. 

My hope is that my writing has the ability to connect to what lies at the core of being human. Whether I am writing poetry, a newsletter, or an essay my writing aims to be honest, attentive, and centered around connection. May these words housed here connect and encourage you.

Hope Is The Untouchable

“Hope” is the untouchable – that touches us 

That dwells deep within- 

And stakes a tent- 

And opens wide for our soul 

        To sit within 

                  Safe and at ease

                                   To be 

And, around that tent – is an open space 

And people gathering – freely – and 

In such a way where hands are held 

And solidarity and unity are present 

I can see it 

Yet 

I can’t

For I know that what I see is 

Temporary 

and only a small piece 

But I hold onto the hands I see anyways 

And I acknowledge that it is 

That which is unseen that 

I feel rising deep with Hope inside of me 

We are almost home 

We are almost home 

We are almost home 

All can come home 

All can come home 

All can hold hope 

All withhold Hope

inspired by Emily Dickinson’s piece “Hope is a thing with feathers”
