True Beauty

I’ve been practicing my short poems for a little while, and I send a friend of mine a poem every morning – sort of like our wake up tradition. She calls the poems her Wordshine, as the daily words bring sunshine smiles to her face! She is going to be a part of a local … Continue reading

Flirt (Gogohka)

In the spirit of fun,  I tried another gogohka.  Hope it makes someone smile!  How many ladies can relate? Flirt Voyeur wind, peeking flirt Ruffles dress, lifting skirt Hands push down, lady blushes Naughty wind’s already rushing to do the same thing again! (Submitted to The Poetry Pantry )

Alight (Haiku)

I’m back with another haiku … still trying out new forms and working them till I’m comfortable with them.  This one came from a friend’s conversation, where she likened love to a butterfly that alights on your shoulder – so delicate, but so close you can see it’s intricacies.  So, this is inspired by and … Continue reading
