It’s the first installment of a chapbook poetry series entitled “make time to breathe today”. This chapbook, like the series itself, focuses on the relationship we have with nature. How we ingest a stale afternoon or a swelling moon.
Accompanying the nature theme is the ebb and flow of wanting; in our longing exists, often, malcontent. This chapbook pokes at that reality, and how when a moment is spared to observe, the wants and longings become so small they hardly exist at all, leaving room for a moment to breathe and do nothing else.
Some poems in this chapbook were previously published:
“Becoming More” was first published in Folded Word
“River” was first published in Terror House Magazine
“Birthday” was first published in Empty Mirror
