How's a writer to put a suitable bio in such a small space as the profile permits?

I welcome feedback, even from you stranger! Some of my favourite work has been after edits from criticism and being told why most of the poem is crap. If a line, verse or concept inspires you, take my words and run with them. Share in the Fediverse and anywhere else as long as you include a link to the source.

Go beyond the comfort of where you reside.
Examine the universe through which you glide,
Especially the one found hidden deep inside,
And try to take what you find in stride.

If you are brave enough to walk through the blistering sands and long summer days, a legendary treasure awaits you in the Sea of Sand. Something so precious and elusive that no one has returned to tell their side of the tale yet.

I love to draw nightskies, they're so pretty and have always filled me with a sense of wonder and hope.

In this picture is Alata, Prince of Akkri and the 6th protagonist of my story.

When it comes to symbolizing how we love our plants and take care of them, I think watering them (sparingly!) is the first thing we think of. But what if the plant lady is a mermaid? 🤔
(And yup, it's inspired by #mermay !)

@bright_helpings @lienrag @guilevi I also find image descriptions useful even tho I'm sighted, I'm autistic and I like to look at the image descriptions for context etc. very helpful for memes and such that I'd otherwise be perplexed over.

@guilevi In addition, people can follow @PleaseCaption (and let the bot follow them back) to get a reminder if they post an image without description.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Pronunciation /pəˈlɪləkw(ə)nt/ /pɒˈlɪləkw(ə)nt/
That talks or writes a great deal, loquacious; verbose.

Mid 17th century; earliest use found in Thomas Blount (1618–1679), antiquary and lexicographer. From poly- + -loquent.


"Um..." said Ted. [He smiled, bowed, waved and walked off stage to thunderous applause. His talk ended with that, as soon as it started. He was definitely not polyloquent.]

"Hey ancient thing, were you born yesterday?
Did you hear what the last ones had to say?"

sixty poems i've never shared before, basically a result of hording and writing on and off for years. I decided to put them in reverse chronological order in case I decide to add more.

Now I'd like to give people the option to financially support without having to pay for a subscription. So today I'm launching an Open Collective page for anyone who would like to support the project.

A thing I like about #MerMay (in addition to all the merfolk art) is the tangible excitement of all the artists who've been drawing mermaids all year already. ^_^

You Glide

sliding along
these edges

Squint your
eyes to notice
the places in
the poem

where the liminal
the pockets where
your words glide

into mine
to become ours
