‘Self Isolation’ Published at Brave and Reckless & Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen!

It is a joy to announce my poem, Self Isolation, has been accepted for publication over at Brave and Reckless and Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen. Written in response to a prompt encouraging writers to share their feelings on coronavirus through art and words, Self Isolation is what came out of me.

Brave and Reckless is the home-place of the poet and writer, Christine E. Ray, where she so beautifully says, “I refuse to be invisible. I honor my voice. I write because I have to.”

Since I too write to express myself, I connected so much with the best phrasing of why many writers write! For me, it has always been about letting the words flow but Christine makes a point of explaining why the words must flow.

Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen is curated by three poets; Christine E. Ray, Nicole Lyons, and Kindra M. Austin, where poets and writers are encouraged to experiment with individual poetic styles, delve into their darker sides, and push past inner and societal boundaries.

I love breaking past stereotypes and boundaries. One of the many reasons I write is to share new ideas. As I write I learn new things about myself as well as see many old thoughts in new light. A poem is born when something clicks!

I am hot and angry

Lost somewhere between crying and screaming.


I seek something to break

To fling a jar hard and

Watch its crystalline shine shatter . . . 

Please do continue reading Self-Isolation at either Brave and Reckless or Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen!
