Dreaming of a Tree

Illustration by Roisin O’Donnell – @stevenfritters

A poem originally published in The Bower Monologues.

There’s a gentle, wise tree

With leaves that remind me

The world’s fragility

And I dream of how it would be

If this was my reality

If I could always stay there

Taking refuge in its serenity

Symphony of Everything

Illustration by Ana Marta Huffstot

A poem originally written for and published in Coronaverses Collective. It was also beautifully narrated in a trailer video created by the magazine.

Today, I heard

The song of two birds

A sparrow, and a robin

The song was about being

Here, and hearing

The cat, waking up

The flower, coming to life

Something of You

A poem originally published in Any Segment Magazine.

Today 

There’s no sun

But there are still the tales

Of the sky

Tonight 

There’s no moon

But there’s still the light 

Of her eyes

Beautiful Mind

A poem originally written for and published in Any Segment Magazine

Come closer, child

There’s nothing to be scared of

She whispered, smiling 

She was still like a tree

A tree, having a beautiful dream

I took a step towards her 

And held her hand

I was not afraid

I felt free, as I looked at her hair 

Dancing like a wildflower in the summer air

Welcome, child, she whispered

All we need is here
