The Spark

You were red-violet
fire in your heart
sending embers
through the ethers
to call me
towards you.

I was blue-green
ocean in my soul
in love with the sun
for warming
my surfaces until
you took its place.

Can the sea be a fool
to let herself be consumed?

Does she even
have a choice?

I was burned alive,
sacfrificial heart.
I turned into steam
and dissipated
on the wind,
blown away.

About Me

I wrote my first story when I was a wee girl of three, followed by my first poem when I was eight. I’ve been writing ever since as a way to cope with life. This practice evolved with learning in both structured settings and through the practice, itself. In my own healing crisis, I found a process I affectionately refer to as Poetic Alchemy. Now on the journey of getting my life back, I do this not only for myself but for you.
