everything that's going on with me and my work....


this work is from the collection of poems called “living in epiphany” ©2000. to purchase a copy of the book, contact me by email.


it was
a night of omens
a night
too sad for poetry
too dark
for the jar of fireflies
I carried
in my soul.

I found the feather
you lost
the first
to fall from your cloak
but not
the last;
the first,
like the word
that began it all –
carried it in my fist
as I flew through the streets
my love
my torch of memory.

l.t. dougherty 1996
