Poetry Wednesday – Wraiths

Wraiths

Wraiths come out to play
While I wait on a friend
To conjure together
Once imaginary friends
Wraiths use to be until
Fights broke out along
Blurry lines of life and death
Leaving me as paper
Soaked in confused tears
Sitting amongst old friends
Ignoring all the patterns
We once cherished so
While I wait on a friend

Poetry Wednesday – Paper Prison

Paper Prison

I searched high and low
Betwixt the lines of pages
I wrote on for where ever
I placed, stuck you
Remember or forget
I cannot quite recall
All the little things
I wrote which caused
Movement stagnation
Split us apart
Became a paper prison
Inked poison keeps you
Hidden
From me, from yourself
Yet I search

Mixed Media Monday – Black Locket

It is Mixed Media Monday. Today‘s featured piece is Black Locket. Its inspiration came about from the surprise acquisition a white resin lock and a metal corner accent piece as well as moderately-obsessively listening to Carach Angren’s album, Dance and Laugh Amongst The Rotten. I had a lot of fun constructing this piece including breaking and staining the resin lock, distressing the printed Ouija board design, and creating an Ouija board planchette out of seed beads.

This piece consists of an 8” square stretched canvas, acrylic inks, soft body acrylic, paper, black tourmaline chips, glass beads, resin, and metal then sealed with an acrylic overlay. Black Locket recently found a home, amongst Carach Angren merch, with a friend of mine.

Poetry Wednesday – Waltz

Waltz

Wash my frustrations away
In your own imagination
Deeper than the pool of crimson
Where I dipped my toes
Awaking you to my presence
Once upon a forsaking
We did come together
To waltz on bodies
Exsanguinated broken
Tiles upon slick floor
Firming up your imagination
In the ink I do toil
Once upon a forsaking
We did come together
To waltz

Mosaic Monday – Earthen Bronze

This week’s bead mosaic is Earthen Bronze. This mosaic came into being after I unearthed a metal tree charm and a broken metal locket in a bin of wayward items at a local craft store. I took apart the locket then paired the items with wood beads and brown and green glass seed bead mixes.

Poetry Book Wednesday – The Heart of Autumn

This week’s Poetry Book Wednesday feature is The Heart of Autumn which was published on September 13, 2011. It is the very first book I published. I don’t really remember the writing process of the book but, as writing came to a close on it, I realized I should finally start publishing my poetry rather than constantly contemplating the idea of publication.

The Heart of Autumn
The Heart of Autumn is available through Amazon. Kindle – $1.99 and Paperback – $6.99. The other 19 of my currently published poetry books and numerous chapbooks can also be found on Amazon.
