Alley Poet’s Pen: For Rent – Home

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – For Rent: I saw the photo of the little cottage house kitchen flashing at me from the screen of my Ipad. It had a warmth I could feel from its vintage 1947 age, but was renovated smartly with granite counters and white painted cabinets.

There was a window above the sink that looked out to a yard (always a rule for every house I’ve ever lived in) with streams of light shining in, and it was there I could see the tree. Thick, old, and jutting up grandly, ignoring the busy road with cars gliding by frequently, and casting shade on the “tear-down-turned modern house” that was going up next door.

Alley Poet’s Pen: Winds of Change – An “Identity Theft” in the Making

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – Did you ever have the dream where you discover there are other rooms in your house that you knew nothing about? This month marks my third anniversary in Nashville, and I feel a bit like I’ve been living in those “other rooms” for three full years. They are foreign and yet increasingly familiar the longer I stay in the south.

They say Nashville is a “five-year town,” but that’s for songwriters and artists looking to sign a deal. Many musicians mark each year in Music City as a reflective milestone, marking the highs and lows, wins and losses, in a tough, and often unforgiving town. To be honest, I never thought Nashville would even be a six-month town. You see, I never expected to actually live here.

Alley Poet’s Pen: “Prosperity” in National Hunger Awareness Month

 

Alley Poet's Pen - Sandee GertzNashville, TN – A tube of toothpaste. A New Testament mini-bible. A can of Old English Malt Liquor beer. That was all I found at the base of trees of the State Capitol lawn where a young man had been laying in the sun without a shirt on for two days in the Nashville heat.

A cardboard sign was propped up against his tennis shoes: “HUNGRY” was scrawled on it in capital letters—hastily it appeared—in fine point pen.

“You know when everything inside of you is weak…“So numb you don’t want to speak…”

Writing left at the camp of a young man expressing hunger and need.
