oasis

You cannot stay
forever
at the sweet oasis
cannot carry away
more than the memory
of its shade
and a handful of fragrant almonds.

 

There is more to be traveled.

About the Author

Nina Adel, a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is an artist of language, sound, images, thought and tangible creative works. Nina composes poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction,  savory dishes and small, magical spaces. She is currently creating hybrid literary works joining memoir, short and flash fiction and song. These works illuminate identity, otherness and the complex lives of adolescent girls and the women they become.

Nina has lived in a range of places and traveled to far corners. She speaks several languages. Language, land and the human condition occupy her time, thoughts and creative endeavors.
