First Thoughts Have Tremendous Energy
Home    Info
About: I believe in poetry. I believe in words. I believe our first thoughts have a stirring vivacity that can inspire and change others and ourselves. I believe in listening to those musings and inviting them in. Natalie Goldberg says in her book, "Writing is a path to meet ourselves and become intimate." Find the time to reacquaint yourself with those original thoughts. Write, read, play, compose, and always be in love with your life.

Emerald Spider Between Rose Thorns
Imagine, not even or really ever tasting&nbsp ;
a peach until well over 50, not once
sympathizing with Blake naked in his garden
insisting on angels until getting off the table
and coming home with my new heart. How absurd
to still have a body in this rainbow-gored,
crickety world and how ridiculous to be given one
in the first place, to be an object
like an orchid is an object, or a stone,
so bruisable and plummeting, arms
waving from the evening-ignited lake,
heading singing in the furnace feral and sweet,
tears that make the face grotesque,
tears that make it pure. How easy 
it is now to get drunk on a single whiff
like a hummingbird or ant, on the laughter
of one woman and who knew how much I’d miss
that inner light of snow now that I’m in Texas.
—Dean Young
“Say you didn’t have to feel the one you love
Grow distant in the parentheses of your arms

Say this life and let it be enough, for once.”
-Joe Bolton, “Song to Be Spoken, Not Sung”

Fragments for the End of the Year


On average, odd years have been the best for me.

I’m at a point where everyone I meet looks like a version
of someone I already know.

Without fail, fall makes me nostalgic for things I’ve never experienced.

The sky is molting. I don’t know
if this is global…

“you have the inalienable right to be both depressingly awful.
And insanely beautiful, simultaneously.”

Tessa Rumsey, Copperopolis

“Intense bursts of energy are now emanating from the sun. And you are lit from within.
Like it ain’t no thing. “I am lit from within!””

Tessa Rumsey, Copperopolis
