don’t rush the sun in setting {original poem + linocut stamp}

Don’t rush the sun in setting, Don’t join it at the end, But watch it creep across the sky, In whispers of the wind. Don’t ask to see it hurry, Don’t tell it ‘hasten now,’ But enjoy the quiet stillness, As it greets the old oak’s bough. Watch it bow and curtesy,To its weathered friend,Who… Continue reading don’t rush the sun in setting {original poem + linocut stamp}

in which I revisit my writing goals from 2021 and write new ones

Hello friends, happy Thursday. I have returned with yet another (and final) retrospective post about last year. At the beginning of 2021 I created a list of writing-themed goals to pursue.

While,… Continue reading Autumn Ramblings {feat. my fall photo dump, the four winds, and Howl’s Moving Castle}

Someday you will be driving down the street and see me on the sidewalk holding a battered poster board with crayon scrawl: will write stories for boba tea & sushi - i have 23 plants to support. I'll live in a small apartment above an antique shop with a partially stained glass window and a… Continue reading poor artist muses about Hawaii

We Found Inspiration in the Weirdest Places {a villanelle}

Inspiration incarnates itself in a variety of mediums to a willing artist. It sometimes is grand and bold, but other times inspiration can be a quiet quirk, a small snippet of conversation, or a picture of the inward workings of a typewriter. I was originally planning to simply share a poem today for the reason… Continue reading We Found Inspiration in the Weirdest Places {a villanelle}

Five things I wish I could make

There is always a running list of arts and sciences I wish I had talent for, but there have recently been a few that have really stood out as things I want to learn eventually. I think that the different facets of art are so neat, especially when it brings art into everyday things, which… Continue reading Five things I wish I could make
