I write and publish my poetry first on Instagram. Then on Sundays, I post the poem that received the most likes or comments here on my blog. Below is my most popular Instagram poem this week, “Go There”.
Go There When hurt and sorrow rise and the news of the day inveigles with its scandalised dispairs, I retreat to my lair, where the tall trees sway in waiting for me, brushing the sky with their leaves; where the stream breaks over the stones, knowing how to flow without straining forward in fear; where above me, secret stars, veiled in the light of day, know just how much we need nighttime to see. There, in the greening spirit of trees, under the blue dream dome of the sky, by the winged babble of water, I hear myself sigh, as I fall into grace, and fly free.
