It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn't stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it. As I already knew, "self-publishing" requires you to fund most of the work yourself. It gets disheartening and a bit stressful, but it's what I have to do… Continue reading Lit. Update: Future Steps
I arrived at a performance filled with laughter and joy A light-hearted comedy to shake off the dust of depression So many care-free moments filled with wide-eyed innocence. But then I briefly recalled my heart's passion That key to illusions past, present, and future And it raised the second curtain on the theater before me.… Continue reading “Dust Of Deception” – Poetry
To plan an adventure, a sojourn in a distant land Mesmerized by frequencies, kaleidoscope of bizarre new sights Hallucinations of other's dreams, yet so convincing Then I collide with the blatant irony, so elusive yet so clear That all is the same everywhere, encryptions that never vary Repetitive trends and teachings, identical fantasies and thrills… Continue reading “Traveling a Broken Record” – Poetry
Due to a shake up in both my personal and professional life, I have not been putting out any online content for a while. I have not been active on my social media platforms and have taken a break from interacting as much so that I could focus on other things. While I will not be going into details here, there are some big changes on the way.

I have been advised not to delete this blog but instead to find something that I’m passionate about and enjoy discussing. I have no idea what that will be yet, but stay tuned for a significant shake up here.
As far as The Whiteraven Net goes, it will also remain up for some time. I’m conflicted about whether or not to…

The fool abolishes law and order, The imbecile claims he is God incarnate, The ego seeks glory and psychic power, The traitor worships the Gods Of Death. All-hail the Indignation! Let man be torn from the pedestal he stole! The Owner Of Worlds is not amused. The Mother and Father see all As… Continue reading “As They Sow…” – Poetry
Daily life has been full of hard work, and lately it’s paid off. We’ve been blessed with the chance to help my mother get some much-needed health care, something that has brought a great deal of relief but also new challenges. Some days, it almost feels as if accomplishment only adds more obstacles, but I’ve decided not to look at it in that negative way. Each step is a blessing and sign that we’re going in the right direction.
One of the lessons I’ve been learning is how to juggle my new job and running the household, while also staying on top of my writing. Alura says staying busy and keeping focused on your goals is what’s needed to stay positive and motivated, but of course some days are easier than others. This is a great lesson for me, I think, because it prepares me for things that…

Enfolded by caring arms so real Igniting hope to strengthen and heal. Cursed be those who would deny This balm of life in the name of lies! Poetry Copyright © 2020 by Ena Whiteraven All rights reserved. Images: found online, photographers unknown, no copyright violation intended
When among the artificial world you have created, Recall you were not made for this darkness so inflated. Sparkling orbs and strands of light have always been yourself, Do not trade them for the lies disguised as wisdom and wealth. You are beloved by Source and can remember who you are, But will… Continue reading “Beloved” – Poetry
