No, I Am Not Gone

As you may have noticed, I have not posted anything in the last month – the month of March. During this time I was so overwhelmed with personal obligations that I couldn’t find the time to find inspiration, let alone write anything. So I decided that I would take the month off, in order to recuperate and then sit done and begin writing again. As such, I will be continuing with my normal posting schedule from this post onwards (no April fooling here), so expect some new (and hopefully improved) poetry to be on its way. In the meantime, here are a few haikus. (It seems customary to make a return from a hiatus with haikus, as I have done so in the past.)

I may never write
again. I felt nothing. No
death, no parting thoughts.

Picture me perfect.
The way I wanted to be.
The way I couldn’t.

Could be poetry.
Don’t let them say otherwise.
Words make black and blue.


What’s Coming

In lieu of the new year, I’d like to set in place a few things that readers can expect sometime within the next twelve months.

As my poetry skills have improved over the years, I am also still trying out different styles of poetry. You will see more structure to poems, whether it be syllabic, metrical, or other. You will also see more writing practices, which this blog has been absent of in recent months. Lastly, I will be working on a poetry collection that should be read as a whole, perhaps for thematic or narrative purposes.

You will most likely see the same sporadic posting of photography that has become the usual from me. So stay on the look out if you enjoy that content.

Some superficial updates: posts will continue to be brought to you every three days, but will be posted in the morning rather than at night. This may be subject to change, depending on whether the time change is beneficial or not.

I have also made a Poem Types page for use when narrowing down and searching for different poetical structures I have used in the past.

Another thing you can check out if you are interested is my update to my Tips For Poems post, which basically details what you should remember when writing poetry according to what I have learned in my experience.

Also don’t forget that you can find Port Foilo over on Tumblr, Twitter, and FictionPress (where you can find short stories and hopefully the potential poetry collection).

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my upcoming poetry!


Recently I have been experiencing writer’s block. I used to be able to schedule three posts in advance, and now I am struggling to post something every three days. So, as the title indicates, I will be on hiatus until further notice, and hopefully I can get out of this block soon. I’ll be continuing posting on and reblogging as much as I have been on
