I am an aspiring writer in the Kern River Valley. This blog is a "test kitchen" to try different writing styles and to work through the many rejections and the handful of acceptances my work has received. But no matter what other people say about my writing, at least my mother thinks I'm a good writer!

Glow- a Love Poem



As I lay here in your arms in the smooth velvet darkness, 

with our baby son asleep next to us, 

I feel that my heart is so full that if you could see inside my chest, 

it would be glowing from within, 

the way the moon glows from the sunlight streaming behind it. 

My love would radiate from behind my heart and it would throb

and glow from too, too much joy

and so much fulness that it would flow out my fingertips, 

my mouth, my eyes. 

How can the room be dark when so much light glows from our love? 

And how is it possible for two mortals to find heaven on this earth?
