    Spadille by Carole Anzolletti

    This poem was written on a day when I was experiencing the effects of dealing with my adoptive mother who has been suffering with dementia. It is my attempt to understand how to handle it and failing. Over and over and over again.

    Waves of anxiety and distress plague us all and we say we are okay when we are in fact, not. Are we? Writing and talking are two very different modes of communication. Writing is the one I am better at. Always have been. It's better to burn out than to fade away...

    This writing would be lost if I did not take the time to sit and be ready to hear my soul release it to my son and all those who have recently lost someone who sounds like he was so kind and the best type of friend anyone could have asked for. Much love and light being sent to Bobby and his family.

    A conscious stream of thought while driving on Route 8 through what I like to refer to as "The Mountain Pass" inspired this several days ago. Another entry that builds up consistency as time passes...

    I have learned to get to the "gold in the dark" I have to be willing to walk through it first. “Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” ― Louis L'Amour

    Poetry happens when you drop fruit on the floor...five-second rule, apple skins shed on the cutting board...a simple act of recycling activates a string of associations from not so long ago...

    On the train to NYC last week, I read an article about a mother and father. I knew when I finished it, it would remain harsh and sharp in the corridors where I keep the horrors like Jon Benet Ramsey.

    I have learned in these amazing last several months that meditation, music and writing can cure just about anything and everything, even my dreadful low laying fury, even my deepest darkest rage...

    ...the energy of storms always evokes a poetic rumination and this blizzard like day is right in tandem with my flash of insight...

    ...there is but one Resolution for this new year...Fear does not lead the way...As the January sun mingled with a verse of a song, the poem began its spiraling dance around my mind and into my psyche

    ...Recently Augusten Burroughs mentions "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" playing in the funeral parlor where his best friend is being laid to rest. It has been coming up almost daily since then.

    Tonight's poetry comes from inspiration caught while driving, a first line or two echoing over and over so hard and loud in my mind that I briefly think about pulling over to the side of the road...

  • ...Black Forsythia...

    ...Black Forsythia...

    2 years ago my poetry today I relay the oxymoron of a flower that is pale yellow but black in my recollection behind a barbed wire vision that loves to twist its way up through the soil of my memories...

  • ...Metallic Totality...

    ...Metallic Totality...

    There are days I am writing before I am awake. This is how it is proven to me, petitions set out into the night are answered under the cover of elusive dreams before the light on the ridge of dawn...
