Watch Me Rise

A poem

(The Goddess Venus being birthed) by lowball-jack from iStock

Watch as my clouds of slumber stir, casting a blushing hue upon awakening — dreams still lucid — desires unfiltered and raw

Stay still as I lay tangled in the soft sheets shielding my bare skin from the steely blues and icy silvers enveloping the night’s moon

Wait, just wait, before you slide off the plush white comforter — that wall between us — notice the glow flickering…

I write about love and loss, what I observe and experience — I write about hope. My writing has been described as resiliently defiant.
