In times
of strife I dream
of being in your arms,
your safe embrace always peaceful,
so sweet.

January Break

Temporary break
from the January cold,
the sun shining bright.

Shades of White

The winter chill paints
newly paved streets white before
the onset of snow.

New Life

A bundle of joy,
she brings peace to our family,
relieving tensions.

It certainly feels great to write in 'Weaving Poetic Threads' once again. I can't believe that I haven't posted here in 6 months! Many things have taken place in my life since that time, early in 2014 in fact. I wish I could say that they were positive things, yet the majority of the events were not. 2014 was certainly a very challenging year, and it forced me to confront things about myself in a monumental way. These past few months have caused me re re-evaluate my goals in life. Despite the struggles, I am eternally grateful for my family, my wonderful boyfriend, my dear friends in my poetry therapy community, and close friendships I've maintained through the years.

I made a promise to myself to strengthen my creative spark in 2015! I'm hard at work in writing my second poetry book, which (hopefully) should be ready this summer. I'm also planning on restarting my poetry therapy group! It will be in New Jersey, and the location needs to be worked out. Running a poetry therapy group brought me much joy when I lived in New York, and I can't wait to have that experience once again.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week! I look forward to sharing more poetry with you soon.


My first book, 'A Blossoming Journey', is available here:


As the winter chill
brings a time of dormancy,
I think of a plan
to rejuvenate myself,
so my soul can fly once more.
