Matte Elsbernd web publisher. writer. photographer. 27 years experience.
Writing is one of those things we all do, often on a daily basis, whether it's a grocery list or an email to a friend. Rarely do we take the time to step back and realize what we're doing. To notice that reflecting on the words we use, the images we create - all of that matters just as much for a note to take out the trash as it does next generation's literature.
I haven't written as much or as often as I'd like. And so far, my writing is underrepresented online. So enjoy these aged nuggets and return periodically for something new.
Some Writings
The River Below revised
staring down at its rippled surface
of foam and mirrors,
as the current embraces
the rocks and the stones,
and then overpowers, and flows over.

the waters seem so crisp and so cold,
freezing the eyes
as the icy winds
freeze the body.

as i stare down
at the small figure of my reflection,
my foot slides on the icy metal railing,
and I start to fall forward:
soaring through the sky.

until I find a new beginning,
in this ending.
