Welcome

I have created this space with two goals in mind. The first goal is to share my poetry and give myself a creative space. The second is to write about indigenous issues and my journey to de-colonization. I hope you will find my poetry inspiring and writing thought provoking. Thank you for taking the time […]

Sight

I put my phone back in my pocket 30 seconds later my hand was on it I looked around to see a never ending blur My glasses are smudged I concur cleaning them off I look up again Its as blurry as it had been my hand is in my pocket clutching my phone “When […]

Humanity

Choose Kindness Be cloth in a metal world Organic in a time of stone building and unbreakable power Choose Kindness Soft words drowning out the war cries Innocence in an over informed world Choose Kindness for the world in its time will tip the scales back toward cruelty Kindness is a meteor shower Inspiring all […]

Dear Indigenous Youth

I hope you never forget you’re important Repeat that line for reinforcement “They” will say you don’t belong Saying that you were born wrong Your culture isn’t a true fine art Though it came from your ancestors hearts They may mock you for your skin’s color Too light; too dark; words to smother Suppress you […]

Blur

Let your eyes be unfocused Stare at nothing in between Let the Screens image fracture Let all around you be fuzzy as seen Give no definition to solid lines Make sure you can see double Reality around remixing; blurring Losing this sense making you humble Rest your brain from searching in pattern Let it relax […]

Swell

I get lost in the swell Wind gusts dancing in tree tops Slow, pause, then a crescendo The wind swelling through the leaves Dancing to the beat of earth Close your eyes; hear the swell It sounds of crashing waves The ocean pulls its vanquished back Stacking them into a new wave Rebuilding what has […]
