MICROPOEM: EVANUI

As the light waned and the air chilled,
she retreated within herself—
a hibernation of the soul
to reflect, recharge, and reimagine.

MICROPOEM: TREADING WATER

The tide is strong,
and my legs are tired.

My head slowly sinks
below
the waterline.

I can hear
my heartbeat,

reminding me

I am
alive.
