Haiku #1

Heart calls unto heart
In the grace of silver light
When a kiss stills time

It’s A New Edition

So on closer inspection you’ll notice a new edition to this blog. Poetry Collections Blog Edition tab. That’s because I’ve decided to create smaller poetry collections especially for this blog. The reason for this is because in the process of creating poetry collections (two have been completed as of this writing) there are those that don’t make the cut. Actually there are a lot that don’t make the cut. Well, instead of keeping them in the dark someplace, I’ve decided that they could go into some collection.

These particular poems weren’t bad pieces. They just didn’t fit with the body of work I was putting together. Not only that but these pieces tend to be pieces that I don’t see in a published body of work. They seem to be a better fit for the blog. So I needed a place to put them. There you have it. The first small collection is already up. It is titled Bag of Knick Knacks.

Each small collection will consist of anywhere from 10 to 15 poems. I hope to keep this going as there are always many pieces that never get put in a larger body of work. Or more commonly there are those that are always being taken out as I progress through to the end of the collective pieces. Sometimes I’ll even take poems out and replace them with newer pieces I like more than what was there. So I hope you enjoy the new page and the new poetic collections. Peace.


From Summer to Fall

From Summer to Fall
By Te’Kia Miller

How quickly time flew
we blinked in May and here is November
deep inside somehow we knew
how quickly time flew
the summer days were far too few
a whimsical time our hearts remember
how quickly time flew
we blinked in May and here is November

I have been experimenting with poetic forms. A few of which I have incorporated in my latest poetry collection (which I’m still trying to decide how I want to have it published). The above piece is my first ever attempt at a Triolet.



I Missed Poetry Month!

So April is poetry month. I love poetry and I love writing poetry. Unfortunately, I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had much time to write poetry. Not just for poetry month but just for me. This of course means that I have missed poetry month 😦 which is a bummer.  There is, however, hope. During poetry month I use prompts from Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides blog. They have some great prompts, one prompt for each day. My plan is to write down each prompt and use those as a springboard to get my poetry flow back on track. That way I can write my pieces at my own pace. I also hope to get some pieces to post on this blog.
