‘Arranged Marriage’ Published at Free Verse Revolution!

I love being able to express my views and thoughts on a diverse range of topics poetically, so I am happy to share that my poem, Arranged Marriage, has been published over at Free Verse Revolution! My heart goes out to Kristiana, the editor, for accepting this piece.

Free Verse Revolution shares the work of writers from around the world, offering a diverse range of beautiful writing by budding and established writers alike. Kristiana chooses beautiful images to compliment each poem.

I wrote this post with WordPress’s new Block Editor and, after much trial and tribulation, I finally found the magic button. In order to create a a space between paragraphs, one must hit shift+enter to prevent WordPress from merging the paragraphs into one. You can imagine my joy at discovering this, since most of my poetry needs diverse formatting.

There is still plentiful turmoil rocking the world’s cradle right now, but I agree that educating ourselves and seeking to understand the problem is one of the best ways to intentionally face any situation. Because we sometimes need our eyes opened to see a problem, I write about little things that hide away and try to be forgotten. Hence Arranged Marriage.

Beneath a mudslide

Lies my heart

Buried because you dislodged

The wrong rock on the

Search for my soul . . . I hope you will continue reading here! As always, I love hearing your thoughts on my writing!

  6. Congrats on getting this piece published! Also for figuring out the spacing on WordPress. I still have trouble with it myself.

    Another great piece. Arranged marriages aren’t something that I usually think about. So this gives me a great opportunity to educate myself a little more.
    Thank you!

  7. Finally a statement I can agree on. Everyone Is missing something very important in the state of the world today. We need to educate ourself in order to better understand the problem to be able to solve it. I hope that you do decide to write a piece on the subject. I will be open to debate.
