Traces

Five random musings inspired by this quotation from Renato Rosaldo: "The material of poetry is not so much the event as the traces it leaves.”

Totems

This poem was inspired by a photograph taken from Allan Gardens in Toronto. I've never been there, but it got me thinking about connection in an urban setting.

Cat Person

Just a fun and possibly revealing little reflection on being a "cat person" (even though I no longer have a cat).

Planting Seeds

I wrote this short prose piece about teaching, but I think it can be applied to "self", too -- to trust the chances we take...

Kindness

I've been experimenting with non-poetic forms lately, including flash fiction, like this 171-word story.

Just Once More

It’s difficult to explain to a non-dancer what the loss of partner dancing is about, this thing we chase week after week, night after night, but I thought I’d try, with this prose-poem.

Listening

I'm finding myself once again needing to tune out from news and social media, and this poem came out in the middle of all of that.
