Poetry, chapbook, 24 pages, from Bottlecap Features.

Our world is full of contrasts.  Something as small as a hummingbird or butterfly can bring hope, beauty, and mystery, whereas something as small as a cigarette can destroy you and those around you. Love and hate, peace and chaos, nature and the artificial find their way into Hummingbirds and Cigarettes.  Nature plays a big role overall in this collection of poetry.  The natural world’s hidden messages and deciphering its meaning tend to be a common theme.

At the same time, these poems address the insecurities and complexities of human relationships.  Love and desire and the hope that these blissful parts of a bond will endure, which are often explained or shrouded in images of the natural world: the seasons, hummingbirds, butterflies, etc.

So, come take a walk with me through my world, my poems, perhaps one or more will shake your soul.
