New Poetry Publication: Practicing in The Slag Review.

 

Practicing

by Patricia L. Meek

Let the lazy take you where it wants because you never know.

-Shaman Jim |

Widen your eyes as if in dying,

as if in death.

Surrender

your struggle

like the newborn

seal surrenders its first

hours to the blinding

tundra,

freeze,

and arctic light.

NEW POETRY PUBLICATION: “UP FROM SMALL”

UP FROM SMALL
by Patricia L. Meek

For Emily Carr

I was born enlarged,
more complete
than my polite culture
could contain.
In order to survive,
I consented to fit
into a teacup.
I dwelled in that dark,
as small as I could
for one having such an ancient heart—
a mighty drum, drum. (more…)

Laughing Trout

(a different kind of love story)

“Catching fish like this is impossible. I settle for staring at the current, which moves down over a stepladder of rocks into intermittent valleys of shadow.” from Laughing Trout by Patricia L. Meek.

Laughing Trout  is my short story published by Ball State University in their literary magazine The Broken Plate, Spring edition, 2017. You can read the story by finding the sample edition and  clicking the arrow.
