Getting Published!

Below is the poem that my school’s literary magazine, Inkstone, chose for publication this semester.


Dawn on Me

Celina McManus


will you take time to

say hello

to apples in the


simple mysteries

of the sea?


clocks –

a song and a painting


into creased palms

of every watchman

in the orchard


bring me baskets

for the patient

and build me


for the blind


if you’re neither

and you slumber

find wood and

nails and I wish

you safe travels

as you sail away


why are you so


of something I

created pure

and clear (like ink)

for you?
