might be good, might be bad, might be nonsense.. but it will be something

Searching For Cereus

“I dream of lost vocabularies that might express some of what we no longer can.” -Jack Gilbert

Cityscapes: Urban Treasure, Urban Detritus

Our city streets contain a multitude of objects that people have left behind, lost, or abandoned—a single tap dancing shoe, a lost lipstick lid, a forgotten mug. These wayward items represent our untold stories, our lost moments stolen by time and place. This poetry collection is a linked series that focuses on those objects that we fail to notice as we walk our sidewalks and travel down our streets.

Conversations with Beethoven and Bach

Music inspires creativity and creation.

 

Feedback:

Emily Vieweg, in her chapbook collection Conversations with Beethoven and Bach, evokes an image of the poet who, deeply entrenched in the complexities of 21st century life as a mother, reaches across time to link with wit and grace her experiences with classical musicality. In her vignettes, so much turns on a single word such as “frolic” that evokes love and fear and changes in both society and environment.

Waiting

 Whether we await good news, or expect to be disappointed, our character is revealed through our actions while we are being forced to wait. Join me on this journey of self-discovery and the exploration of the human condition. In between the big moments, nestled in the pauses and the quiet, lives the chaos where our lives are truly being lived.

Sand in My Parfait

Somewhere in the wake of all that craziness we call life and living, there lingers on a sweet aftertaste that makes it all worthwhile. Sand in My Parfait is a series of poetic musings on parenting and other forms of slow death.

Every poem in this series takes a humorous jab at life as we know it.

WARNING: 
Many poems in this series are written in classical/formal verse. Reader discretion is advised.

Betweens

Too often we think of our lives as timelines, in terms of the dots along the way that represent highlights and low points.  This poetry collecton explores the moments in between, the small moments that connect everything and show us what and who we are.

Truth

A collection of my poems. 

I'm not gonna try to win you over here with big shiny words, or some unreal comparison. This is my poetry, not a used car. Truth, plain and simple is my thoughts and feelings reflected however they may be, into words. Fictitious or not these poems are about my life and what's a part of it. 

The title says it all, this is just my truth.

My Life: A Collection of Poetry

My first poem was written in elementary school. I went on to have several of my efforts published by a high school teacher, even though I wasn't particularly fond of always having to rhyme every other line. My expression was bound by rules and restraints.  Lately, I've been trying my hand at Free Verse. My newest writings come from real life emotions--the beauty and the suffering.  

I live among the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains.  The summers are warm. The winters can be harsh. I wouldn't trade my home for anywhere else, and several of the poems are about my surroundings.

Life can be full of heartache or fill your heart with joy and love. This is My Life, a collection of poetry written my way.  

Raine's poetry & songs

A few of my poems, and a couple of songs. 

Pieces of Poetry and Me

Poems and prose from my heart and my life.

A world of which I belong

The Arrows On The Clock Are Pointing At Me

Image splattered, FEEL poems... Imagine, it's late, the ceiling fan turns and turns and turns, the moon is kissing the sun, the apple trees are picking their fruit, desire is strung from the telephone wires, long goodbyes and eager hellos replay in the mind, the stars are honey dripping and innocent as the spirit, the light coming through the sliding doors looks like everything known about being alive, the arrows on the clock are pointing at you, at me and these are the poems...

The Colour of Her Mind

A series of blackout poems created from The Color of Her Panties by Piers Anthony.

The Mutable Heart
