An eclectic mix
A jumble of many genres
Many voices

Observation and empathy shape my stories and poems. Writing, photography, and art fill the nooks and crannies between home and family.

Golden jewel
Flaxen hair, honeyed eyes
A free spirit, she'd not be reined
Bereft, alone, sweet memories languish
Her essence fixed inside his heart
Buried deep forever
Like a fly in
