Frozen citrus twilight
tinged City’s fading sight;
sleeping willow tendrils wrap around me in
this hourglass,
this naked January

I promised a dance to Winter

and I remember
that the river, though cold,
continues
to flow, to breathe
beneath the ice

I’m honoured to be featured in FEMMELDEHYDE’s beautiful new creation, Issue 10: Surrealism, along with other wonderful Toronto writers and photographers. Read the entire issue at www.femmeldehyde.com.

“We danced in silver moonlight as the skies shed a single star in melancholic ecstasy”

Click here or on the picture below to read my short piece, Sanctuary of Lovers, the title of which is taken from this poem:

Do you know, knower, what the night is?
It is the sanctuary of lovers.
On this glorious night
I am drunk with the moon.
The moon has fallen in love
and the night has gone mad.
– Rumi, Gardens of the Beloved

The Joy of Books

I absolutely love this video, featuring Type Books in Toronto. Whimsical. Creative. Enchanting. I always knew this happened when the lights went out in a bookstore… Please take a couple of minutes to watch it. You’ll remember why you love books!

My Book Launch

Thank you so much to everyone, dear friends and wonderful (huge!) family, who came out to my book launch May 11, 2012. I am so grateful to have shared this special moment in my life with all of you. OVER 100 PEOPLE packed the bar! I cannot even explain how emotional and overwhelmed and happy I am. A million thanks to all. A special thanks to Blaurock Press for believing in the book, and bringing it this far – Christian Snyder, Stanley Johannesen, Penny Winspur, and Julie Blake.
