Mystic Coffee


Prose Poetry. Free verse. Micro-fiction.

When I’m not working on my next book,
I write free-form poetry and short pieces of fiction that are hard to categorize.
Some call them prose poems, lyric essays, or micro-fiction.
Whatever they’re called,
they allow me to escape the small, tight circles of my ‘necessary mind' 
and dive into a world that I call middle space.

Middle space is not governed by the logical, rational mind.
It is the abode of memories and emotions and inspiration.
This is where the magic happens,
where ideas find each other and sparks fly from their new association.

I believe this is where the Muse hangs out.
It is a place untamed by words.
It is the writer’s job to translate from that place.

I invite you to read my prose poetry and free verse on my blog

A writer's ode to coffee

My coffee grinder jolts the sleeping beans into mindfulness. This is the moment they’ve been waiting for, ecstatic about being called into service.

When the muse pays a visit

Drinking coffee, waiting for the courier. Two owls hoot love notes to each other in owlish Morse code.
