Morning Poems (2023)

Follow this link to purchase your copy of Morning Poems

Morning Poems is a chapbook collection of 19 poems written in the twilight spill between sleep and wakefulness. Quickly sketched immediately at the point of waking, only to be reviewed and revised weeks later, Morning Poems lingers where thoughts and dreams flow together. In its poems, abstract landscapes, mysterious allegory, and atmospheres of unbodied love encounter one another.

More of a window into primordial poetics than jungian dream analysis, Morning Poems engages the rupture between the material and ephemeral world at the edge of consciousness. Morning Poems speaks an elemental language — of earth, air, fire, and water. The poems linger on feelings and images of geologic time, atmospheres, cycles, cataclysm, desire, and reverence for mystery.
