The east coast, the SF Bay Area, and Lake Tahoe are threaded throughout the poetry of Becky Bishop White. An emerging poet, Becky won the 2019 First Prize in the Benicia Love Poetry Contest for her poem, Flying Start, and was Second Place winner for an unpublished poem, Ghost Fleet, at the 2019 Solano County Fair. Becky lives in Benicia with her husband, author James W. White, who is her very best friend.
ALIGNMENTTo try to set a problem rightrequires courage. Some mightthink to leave or just poutin silence, but to talk it outor try for a hug is huge.You are no longer fugitivefrom your best self.You have broken the spellthat makes you think ‘other.’But it’s not really anotherwho aligns with you.Here is what is true:The soul who makes peace is nearerto the person in the mirror.© Becky Bishop White
