Today I Started My Day In A Bathtub©

Today I started my day in a bathtubNo waterNo bubblesJust me, elongated legs and arms, stretched outA fluffy pillow cushioning my back against hard porcelainSun beam piercing through the blinds bathing me in warmthThere’s a stillness in the airExcept for the steady second-hand chime of the clock on the adjacent wallEach tick-tocking reminiscent of time’s …

Finding Hope in A Broken World

Before-word: This piece was written in response to the following questions I've been asking myself in the wake of protests to social injustice across the globe: How many times can a people be stretched before their elasticity is extended beyond its capacity to bounce back and they snap instead? What do you do when as …

Unmasked© (a poem)

Before-word: I wrote this piece long before masking became part of global health guidelines. Today we mask-up to protect our immune systems from an unseen predator—the novel corona virus. So for that reason, follow the golden rule of masking: mask-up for others as you’d have them mask-up for you. However, when I wrote this piece …
