It’s Dress Up Time!

Busy, busy, like a queen honeybee, pumping out ideas, designs, and information with little breaks in between to breathe. Ask for help will I? Why? Everything's under control, yep...everything is errythang. Whew. Who am I kidding?? These last two years, I had been producing works for publication and sale. After joining the band, I was … Continue reading It’s Dress Up Time!

The Great White Male

I slapped on the visor and apron with uncertainty. Already I had worked the season opener for the local college team, now my volunteering efforts were geared towards opening day for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The USF game was its own special nightmare - scorching day, no breeze, collapsing bodies - but otherwise, sales at … Continue reading The Great White Male

Coming Down The Mountain

Gilded tendrils through wooden slats summon a new Appalachian day. I tumble, tumble giddy under feathery darkness my morning dreams launch me into flight...

So You Might Be A Star Seed

I admit, I'm being a little too research-intensive for a 4th of July weekend, but it's helping me keep focused on something positive. Ever have that?

For You, Lady Graduate (a poem)

Niece #2 graduated yesterday, with much relief and gratitude. She's my namesake and shares my spirit. For her graduation package, I added an impromptu poem. It literally roused me from deep sleep days before mailing her gifts, the words, "Go on little princess, put on your crown..." Attached is the modified version. The original you'll … Continue reading For You, Lady Graduate (a poem)

Operation: Falcon Crest

Three yellow butterflies fluttered before me, playfully twisting in the warm morning gust accentuating this morning's walk. Sweat curtained my face way before hitting the mile marker; what is this?? This time last year, a decent chill to temper the swamp, but in 2015, I still have boob sweat! Walk is over and it's time … Continue reading Operation: Falcon Crest

Just In Time For Halloween

Inside this anthology you'll find yours truly in both prose and poem form! The story I submitted is from the perspective of a social predator locked in a holding facility, terrifying residents and staff alike. Oh and the evil person happens to be female 😉 There's three poems dedicated to women in the throes of … Continue reading Just In Time For Halloween
