Poetry news!

Just received news that a forthcoming anthology entitled:


taking a bite of the apple–revelations is gone to print!

The book includes my poem Girls and Green Apples along with works by several local writers with whom I am so glad to be included. I have included, here, a glimpse of the book launch flyer. The event will occur in early December. It will be available to add to your Autumn Reads!

November has been a busy month for writing poetry!

Each day, I have participated in a month-long poetry challenge with Poetic Asides, an online group that I first met a couple of years ago. This is the second November challenge for me in this group of amazing poets, real wordsmiths with a lot of heart!

On this special weekend, I thought I would share a poem with readers of this blog. Here is a photo I took of this week’s ice storm impact & the related Haiku that I wrote for November daily challenge.

  1. aloha Patricia – this (just passed November – 2011) was my first attempt at the month long chapbook challenge. having completed the initial writings, I’m not quite sure where I will go from there – altho I am full of questions for my self as well as other writers. it’s cool to watch what another writer is doing – will do – with the work… so it’s fun to discover your blog. aloha.


    1. aloha again Patricia – yeah, i did a lot of re-working as the month progressed – i still have a lot that can be done i’m sure. may be if i work through that… and then make some choices… by that time i’ll have a more clear idea what i’m going to do with it. i think these next steps are where i can bog down – so i may have to push a little harder to get through this part… still fun tho. thanks for letting me know i’m not alone in this “what now stuff”. here’s energy to you to carry it on through too. aloha.
