Love or Hate?


…sometimes both.

I do love to write
…when there’s time.

More often
than not, my brain’s overrun
with all the wrong words.

* I didn’t start writing for NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) until two-thirds through April this year. And at that point, hadn’t re-started posting to my blog. SO – I’m catching up with my posting! (Now that I’ve relearned all things WordPress!)

Poetic Path


My poetic journey is nearing its seventh year mark. It began as my fingers walked over the keyboard, composing the first entry on my shiny new blog. I was surprised more than anyone when what my eyes saw forming on the screen was more like poetry than prose. I suppose the poetic words that danced in my head as a child were always there inside, but decades of dormancy were ended that day (as I sat with my laptop in a waiting room for jurors). My words have since Whirl’d me on a poetic path through gardens and cyber pubs, down poetic streets and back again. And I will be forever grateful for the friends (nay, family) I’ve met along the way.

celebrating words
by writing even more words ~
my poetry blooms
