I cope with major mental illness through my writing, artwork, jewelry making and nature photography.

Torn Paper Thoughts

I live within a castle, towering,
Knit from spun glass, my mother’s yarn

Rattling within an arctic squall, torn paper feeds the fire.

Dry ice chills the ocean waves,
As sea foam laps onto the shore.

My wrath is heated metal,

[Hata Bildir]
