Hi everyone. I would like to share with you one of my favorite poets. Linda M. Crate is a prolific poet, and writer of fantasy. What I love is how empowering her words can be. Linda writes on subjects like sexual assault, suicide, and relationships, entwining them in ethereal, nature themes.
You can read her recent poetry at Writing in a Woman’s Voice Cruel White Songs
I am All I Have
Anti-Heroin Chic You were Wrong
Another Way Round journal Lemons & Moons A Wildness that Never Sleeps Even I have Limits
Lit-Rally Your Judgments must be Proud
The Barishal Review 5 Haiku poems
An interview at The Magnolia Review
And if you like her poetry you can download for free her chapbook Heaven Instead at Origami Poems Project. This is a wonderful idea, where you can read poets chapbooks by printing them out, and folding them into your own books.
You can also buy her books My Wings were Made to Fly ( Flutter Press ) and Splintered with Terror ( Scars Publications )

that’s the best thing you do
If ever you needed some word medicine I believe Lehmann’s words, if you truly try to believe in them, will help heal you.
if you feel
is eager to rain
bring it a gift
of sunshine instead
at the glorious colours
made me think of the beauty of the rainbow patterns on rained on concrete when the sun comes out.
make a certain peace
ask it to tea
and stare patiently at one another
when it is time to get up
