Double Rainbow Morning

I’m doubly pleased today as I have two wonderful surprises to announce (plus a bonus third surprise at the end of this post.)

The first lovely bit of news is that my poem, “The Beach Aged Overnight,” was published today on MasticadoresUsa. I really love this poem. It speaks to the inevitable changes each of us experiences and how this process is reflected in the landscape around us, and so I would be most honored if you went to the site to read it.

Secondly, I have been wanting to announce that I have two poems that will be published in Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women. The anthology is edited, and curated, by Gabriela Marie Milton, #1 Amazon Bestseller Author( author of Woman: Splendor and Sorrow :I Love Poems and Poetic Prose ; Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings) and published by Experiments in Fiction. The lovely cover art was created by Nick Reeves. I am so honored to have my work nested alongside so many other great female poets, and so I cannot wait to read this anthology and discover the treasures stored inside it, and I hope you’ll be compelled to purchase your own copy.

I want to say a huge thank you to Gabriela Marie Milton for creating this anthology to highlight the unspoken struggles and triumphs of women all around the world. I am honored to be a part of it.

And now for the last sweet surprise, as I went on my walk this morning in search of some beautiful blooms to inspire me, I realized that most of the color pop had passed. And like anyone in search of one particular thing, I found something entirely different:

In search of haiku

no interest in flowers

      • Thank you. Great idea. I will also visit there, as I think I’ve stopped by there before to view a friend’s poetry. Thank you.m, Joni. 🦋


    • How wonderful, Susi. Way to fill my sails this evening. I’m ready for more fictional voyages because of your kind words. Grateful for your confidence and so glad to be connected.
