Happy Wanderer

 I am excited to share with you a new poem, featured today on Visual Verse: Anthology of Art and Words. Last spring, a butterfly flew into an open window in my bedroom while I was journaling. I was mesmerized watching it flit about the room. At that time, I had been journaling every day and debating whether or not to share more of my writing publicly. To me, the butterfly was a good omen that some of my favorite teachers, including the late Wayne Dyer, were encouraging my creative endeavors.

I would like to thank Kristen Harrison and the entire team at The Curved House for showcasing my poem.

The lovely image posted this month was created by Yasin Aribuga.

Happy Wanderer

I am that I am:
a Monarch sunset
dripping in majesty,
sprightly yet delicate,
prone to forget
to wave goodbye.

I am that I am:
juicy papaya flesh,
slick pupil seeds,
a spicy kadala dish,
complex, but restless
to take flight.

I am that I am:
a Tiger Lily snip,
freckled flower,
hermaphroditic,
prone to backflips
like Olga Korbut.

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you, kindly.
