Stillness is the break before the dawn. Where light peeks around the shadows with a force to wither them away. You beck and call with a whisper only I can hear. But I disbelieve at this hour your light shines. That call - that light - why penetrate my stillness? Just because...

Just because... Soon my stillness is pulled downward. A door opens with a warm smile and a beautiful spirit brushes over me like an ocean breeze. The door closes and my stillness is home.

I am excited to announce that my second collection of poetry is NOW AVAILABLE!!

MOMMA IS COMPLICATED encompasses a relationship between a daughter and her momma where a web has been spun and the reciprocal fear bites and leaves scars. However, with this entwining of complications, hopeful desire for forgiveness encroaches to whisk away stings with a hopeful resolve.

At the moment you can purchase this collection along with my first poetry collection, BEAUTIFULLY NAKED. AT LAST., on my  SHOP page. I also have my poetry collections currently available at the following locations:

BookPeople, Austin, TX

Kerr Arts & Cultural Center, Kerrville, TX
