Life has its 10,000 sorrows and 10,000 joys.
Suffering is real. And so is its opposite – beauty. Both are mysteries. They both do their work in their own seasons.
If you are in a season of suffering, I hope the words of the poets can touch a bit of your pain and give you space to take a breath.
- Deep beauty in the broken earth
- Seasons of Suffering
- Getting Cheddared
- What if the pain is a portal?
- Black Turtles
- Whose Fault Is It? (Previously published in Prometheus Unbound)
- Greedy Blowhards
- I see the assassins have failed
- Writing the apology I will never get
- Old prescription bottles
