In her tanka poem below, Crystal reflects on how nothing is what it seems.



Oceans become clouds;

butterflies were once larvae—

a double-edged sword

cutting hearts in half, until

bees run out of sweet nectar.


Crystal Mars visits Brockton Writers Series on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 in our new home, Glad Day Bookshop, 499 Church Street, Toronto, at 6:30pm (PWYC) alongside Sonia Di Placido, Alicia Elliott, Anar Ali, and special guest speaker Farzana Doctor who will discuss, “How to Mindfully Address Your Inner Critic (so that you can get back to your writing)”.
