New poem, “Lightkeeper”

This is a poem for one of my dearest friends, who believes that the role and responsibility for some of in this world is simply to be a quiet ray of light and hope for others. Especially when things are at their darkest, which they grow more and more these days.

And I’m honored that, in spite of knowing my flaws and failings, my friend still considers me one of those people. It’s the force I try to serve with my poems and art, I think.

In the background is another of my nature prints. I’m continuing to experiment with integrating the images, like this one of a maple leaf, and my poetry.
