I also have a few ideas for poetry-related self-publish books on the poetic writing process as well as a collection of poetry and short fiction prompts. I hope to be working on these in 2020.(less)

It is a state of mind that is self-imposed when we overwork ourselves, over stimulate ourselves, and become disconnected with our inner creative spirit.

Here is an article I wrote, discussing the myth of writer's block and the emotional toll it takes on us:

I write a lot about creativity and its ability to stabilize us, promote better mental health, and lead us to a more meaningful life. Spending time in nature is the most surefire way for me to tap into my creative spirit. Find what works for you and make the time to immerse yourself in it.

“I do not want to live
in a world without butterflies.
Without the intricate eyes and velvety wings,
graceful splashes of color dancing on the breeze.
Airy, delicate keepers of hope.
Metamorphic symbols of change, growth, maturation.

... I do not want this world
without the butterflies.
I could not bear the wailing
of flowers.

--from 'A World Without Butterflies' (a poem)”

“I do not want to live
in a world without butterflies.
A place where they only exist
in oil on canvas or silver trinkets on a chain,
in language, legends we pass to the next
generation of memory-keepers,
a place where tiny ghosts have painted wings.”

“I made your favorite." Nannie says, her elegant hand trembles,
so subtle it hides behind a smile. She listens
carefully,
responds quickly, eases the baked macaroni from the oven.
We wash our hands with bars of smooth soap in delicate shapes.
We are quiet, careful not to touch the glass of doors.

We do not leave fingerprints here.”
Christina M. Ward

“Golden framed and heavy, the painting.
Ocean waves curled in suspended time,
white-lipped and silent beneath brush-stroked blues
of sky. Gulls are captured there, mid-flight, fishing moments stolen in time, they soar without moving.”
Christina M. Ward, organic

“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on

“Ready, the boy climbs the ladder,
makes his way to the edge
and full of faith-- he leaps--
expecting flight,
finding hot tears
in a red cape
that doesn't work.”
