Snow moon

Snow moon all alight

You woke me from deep slumber

So close to me all aglow

Whispering love to my heart

Immersing me in your eye

About me: actual literal non-fiction

I have debated on whether to mention this here, because it’s supposed to be a space for my art & that alone. But it has come to my attention that I must do so because art is part of everything…

In case it wasn’t evident, which it ought to be considering the kinds of allegories I write, I’m a leftist & very dedicated to social change, anti-racism & decolonization, as well as disability justice & much more.

My art is relatively popular in form, & meant for a wide audience. But unlike my fictional characters, I am a real person & have to live by my values, which will be reflected in my writing always.

It’s no secret. & it’s better I say it now than wait until maybe I won’t know how to say it later.

Do what you will with that info. I definitely won’t tolerate any discrimination on my pages, & I want to create a welcoming space.

Consider too, if you like my art, while I write in symbolism, I’m not hiding my beliefs. If you live on the other side of the political spectrum & you are enjoying songs for now, please ask yourself why.

The garden

The garden was filled with so many flowers. It was colourful. Pinks and blues. Lots of variety. It was midsummer and dusk was falling. They sat with a cup of warm tea and gazed towards the pink clouds floating carefully through the iridescent sky. There was a cool breeze over the […]
