** Featured Poet **

I was surprised when Ryan, of DAYS OF STONE, invited me to be his **Featured Poet** this month. It’s a privilege and an honor to be recognized by such a talented writer. I have the greatest admiration for Ryan and his writing abilities, he is able to make a line of text come to life. Ryan offers a strong body of work, his poetry is always captivating and heartfelt. Please enjoy exploring Ryan’s site, it’s one of my favorites and definitely worthy of a follow. ~ Mia

This month I’d like to introduce you to the poetry of the incredibly talented Mia from Copper Cranes. For me, Mia’s writing is a shining light in the Word Press universe. Profoundly deep, intuitive, imaginative and so beautifully constructed, Mia puts her heart and soul into every post and writes without fear or compromise. But it’s something more than that. Despite the complexity of Mia’s ideas, she conveys her thoughts with a grace and elegance that makes you feel as if the poem was written for you alone.

Copper Cranes is bursting with some of the greatest poetry you’ll find on the Internet and well worth a look. In the meantime, please enjoy:



Lit my last cigarette
With a match
That could never be
Struck again.
I stood as black carbon
Final indifference —
Kerosene and gasoline;
Fanning the flames
Hiding high crimes
All the while
Whitewashing ugly…

  1. Dear Mia,

    This is a great post about you and so well deserved you are of his words and more. I learned a lot of great things about you.

    For example had no idea you were in SoCali too. That means, one day we may bump into each other 🙂

    Love the poem that was chosen. It is one of my favorites.

    Love to you and may your Friday be a beautiful day!

    1. Thank you Dajena, for your kindness and wonderful words. I’m pleased that you learned a little bit about me, mostly my thoughts about writing and how I go about it.

      Yes, delightful Southern California, dream cities by the sea, just like. “Annabel Lee”. 🙂 I thought you knew that, that’s why I would always include a small surf report, it’s all the rage in this house. 🙂

      I’m pleased to read you like the poem, “Ether”, thank you.

      Wishing you an enjoyable rest of your Friday, thank you for the nice wishes. Have a wonderful weekend, the weather should be fantastic.

      Much love to you,

      Mia ❤

        1. Carisa, thank you form the bottom of my heart for your lovely reply. There are many things that you write about that are familiar to me, situations that most people, thankfully, will never know or experience in a life time. So for that I am grateful, along with the fact that you are incredibly strong and resilient to pen the words that you do. I find that I have to tell myself these experiences are special, because of the deep reflection needed to keep going, along with the growth and wisdom that comes from all of it. Please be well and have a lovely Sunday too. 🙂 ❤

    1. I’ve just read the first pass of, “The Interview” it’s a wonderful, very impressive. I want to read it again tomorrow with fresh eyes, and offer a proper comment. My mind is still racing, so many fabulous elements, and a fantastic dystopian quality to it. Let me stop here. By the way I’m smiling, I really enjoyed it.

      Thank you for your kind words. Please take care, wishing you well. ~ Mia
