fair maids of february

white violets of the spring

awaken now

sweet beauties of resilience

teach me of thy song




Seize the Day-Electus

discovered these delicate little beauties while touring one of the many covered bridges of Lancaster County in Pennsylvania. Naturally they stole the show. These resilient little babes are called snowdrops and are nature’s way of hinting that spring is on its way. In the language of flowers, these are a symbol of hope. They are one of the first of wild blooms as the transition from winter to spring descends and truly are resilient to the still harsh colder days and get their name from the ability to deflect snow. They are currently on the endangered plants list so please if you come upon them refrain from picking!

stilled on blades of ice

collecting the rhythm to a symphony of breaths far below

for she,

with eyes resistant to a world

can find such a place as barren as she

to power

to ignite

forgotten steps thawed in the dance

silent little daggers

to her breast with fire they stake

wanting simply to be remembered

simply seen

simply undressed

in she



bewitching happenstance: a poem

bewitching happenstance: a poem

She knew all along
it was there
dormant yet waiting
to kiss the wanton air
to dance out of the darkness
to own the light
to taste every demon
and soar in its delight

one day twas happenstance
he came along
singing to her soul
a bewitching song
that linked to every emotion
she’d hid life long

each fiber within came awake
silently beckoning for him to embrace
what she knew she always wanted
but too scared to face
