Poem Published at The Trinity Review

Excited to share that a poem from my forthcoming collection, Particle, has just been published at The Trinity Review.

More about the publication: “The Trinity Review is the literary arts publication of Trinity College at the University of Toronto. Active since 1881, the Trinity Review publishes prose, poetry, visual arts and non-fiction work.”

My poem, “Feast,” is a persona poem written from a character’s POV.

“Feast”

Melanie Faith

In the space between a green bruise

And a lucid dream, all milk-heavy stars

I was born. Snow-swept steppes,

Hollow legs. What a way to arrive

In earliest January,

She didn’t read my irony as irony.

Yes, yes she said, a way to crack open

The year like a muskmelon

Burying our faces full, up to the rind

My Nature Photo Published Today at Fourth & Sycamore :)

Thrilled that another photo from my In the Green series appears at Fourth & Sycamore today.

I took this photo during a very fun afternoon walk with the darling nieces and my marvelous sister while visiting Missouri.

The flower was taller than yours truly, which caught my attention. The dancing sunlight on the petals and path also appealed to me.
