TWO POEMS MICAELA EDELSON

TRAILING Sometimes your trail has ravines or coastal cliffs, twisted steps and petite waterfalls. Other times your trail is a smelly dirt road guided by bare branches. But when you whistle with the birds and dance for the sheep, the barrenness can still be beautiful.

STANDING Tear down the ivy, brush off the moss, peel back the bark to find the tree still standing. Yet dig up the roots and you will see how fast a giant falls.

MICAELA EDELSON works at one of the largest conservation organizations in the world working with large multi-national companies to reduce their plastic footprint; however, writing is where her true passion lies. Edelson has pursued writing since high school when she published her first poem. Since then, Edelson has been published in international political magazines and blogs and has held her own political-philosophy blog for over a year sharing prose and poetry.
