An exclusive sneak peek of my opening poem from my debut collection ‘The Salamander Chronicles’
Biological channeling ignited
my cellular beginning –
Life-giving forces shaped
my anxious contortions –
Each molecular phase building
a part of this human race –
This calm haven my maternal
sanctuary critical – As they plan
for an arrival.
