people are beautiful

IT IS FINISHED!!!

My debut poetry book The Beauty of People will be available for purchase IN 10 DAYS!!!
All proceeds through the end of the year go to The Rabbit Room, a nonprofit organization bringing people together and changing lives through story, art, and music (and poetry!)
This amazing organization has endlessly inspired me and changed my life, and I want my first action of my first real, physical product to be to give back.

So not only will you get a beautiful book of poetry, you’ll be donating to this most worthy, worthy cause!

Rosalind

You are the light that bursts through the clouds
Of a dreary, dull, gray day
The rose petal in a shifting pile of ashes
The soft blanket that guards against the chill of night
Green, speckled eyes, with a gentle, soothing scrutiny
Full of wisdom, far-reaching and calm,
Like the ocean reflecting the glimmering glory of the sun
A listening ear, a ready smile, a beautiful mind
With love for life that forbids denial
Gorgeous, witty, gleeful, and sure
Dear, dear girl, keep walking
The world is being shaped around your feet.
