About

When depression, grief or fear have a hold on your heart it is comforting to visit a place that reminds you that you are not alone.  Like a blackout, circumstances can be disorienting and this can add to the struggle. Flashlight Batteries is a poetry blog that offers hope and a mirror for tough transitions. It is dedicated to all who struggle and don’t believe that anyone else could possibly feel the same way.

I am a lover of questions, hope rebel and a safe place to land. Writing poetry has given me a way to touch other’s lives and make connections I never dreamed could happen. Taking photos reminds me to see my everyday life with new eyes. Through this blog I give to you the gift of myself, my words and my photos.

Light is created through connection. Please share your comments and your journey. Thank you for being a part of mine.

The poem titled Flashlight Batteries is the first poem I wrote for this blog.

With a heart full of gratitude,

Ali

  3. I stood to applaud as soon as I read your tagline–wow, how great!!! Truly, poetry is like emergency lighting. I’ve had numerous blogs since I joined WordPress in Aug 2011–since they’re free, I can start a new one whenever I need “something new”. And I’ve been writing for 5 decades, so I know good work when I see it–I’m following you today. God bless you!
