Date Extended!

Because of all of the sad and tumultuous events of last week, I am extending the drawing date out to the end of April.

Our hearts go out to all of those with losses in Boston, Massachusetts, in West, Texas, families along the Mississippi  and all who have been affected.

Spotted Overcoat

The day has arrived.

If you are here, you already know about “Spotted Overcoat, Poetry on the Lam.”

Or maybe not.

Perhaps you were looking for a new coat… or a dry cleaner.

As long as I have your full attention, I will tell you that today is release day for my debut poetry book.

This week only, through Tuesday April 30th, you can sign up HERE for a drawing for FREE STUFF! 

If your name is selected, you could win a paperback or e-book version of "Spotted Overcoat." You will be automatically entered to win an original artwork by Sherry Ann Greer similar to the book cover! 

Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!


Before All Else

Scrubbing my morning face
Hollow stare
At the party dress
Polished heels
Waiting to dance
A celebration
I would be a hypocrite 
To go ahead
With a fake smile 
Until a prayer was said
Skipped heartbeat
Silent hope
Mourning soul
For those who cannot dance
Across the finish line

For Here, or To Go?

There is no time
For thoughts
That cry to me
To be written down
On a scrap of anything
Passing for a notebook
Or a fast food sales receipt
Begging for a deep sigh
That never expels
The thoughts
That are now overcooked
Like a bad meal
On the go
Burnt to a crisp
Waiting for that day
To arrive when there will
Be time to simmer some
