We recently held a Book Launch for Let the Mourning Come, the debut chapbook for prolific poet Kika Man. I must tell you that this book affected me. It is the kind of book you want to read over and again to truly digest the contents and feel all the feelings. Following is the Book Launch video and I encourage you to take this content in and digest the beautiful words expressed for Kika and this book, a capture of the heart.

Available on Lulu and via Kika Man, as well as selected book retailers.

Autumn and SAD

Autumn brings a change
when darkness comes too early
life can take a turn
SAD comes forth with depression
pleasures once known may be gone
sleeping may be more
energy waning, despite
dozing throughout night
slowing down movements and speech
restlessness, pacing, wringing
feeling less than worth
guilt taking over a life
concentration’s hard
forget making decisions
leaving feels as an option
it may start out young
but age is not the factor
more importantly
getting help is what matters
