Come In

more often than not, i find myself tucked in between crumpled sheets of bed and book inside a well-lit room, with a cuppa black and hot coffee on the side, paired with a blank page waiting, expecting for the sudden flow of ink, as i breathe in and out words. come in, join my community […]

Still in Storm

inside the dark eye of the strong storm inside filled with swirling and turning and unending to do’s, to make, to finish, to see, to hear, to read, to write, my tired eyes, my tired mind, my tired heart, sssssh. be still. be still. — 04.25.2017 ©2017 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer. All Rights Reserved.
