the field of fireflies–
gave me the urge to count them. similar to when i was young and i wished to
add up all the jelly beans in a game of Guess How Many? i’d come close, yet
never close enough–
i once learned lightning bugs flashed to find a potential match, but
then that lead me to wonder: what makes their light
I grew up in Portland, CT & found myself moving to Portland, OR just about a year ago. I am heavily focusing on visual arts and creative writing – there is nothing else I would rather find myself doing. I've done woodwork/carving, metalwork, printmaking, film photography & developing, wire/tissue, plaster, knapping – you name it, I've probably done it (& if not I probably want to)!
Writing is a newer direction that I am pursuing and typically I find myself experimenting with formatting and the language within my poems. I lean toward expressing emotions through experiences, while not stating the emotion – rather creating a poem where the feeling from my experiences (or perhaps, a reader's) are fostered.
