Written over the years of late 2012-2014 the poetry that emerged from my finger tips started to take a new direction. Nature and love topics will always be on my forethought, but objects like a pole, a cinnamon roll and a rain drop on a porch at night attacked my senses.
2013 was an especially wild year, romantically, professionally, artistically. New jobs (plural), hope gained then lost AGAIN, projects built such as “Poetic Moments” radio feature and the Peace Poets ‘Read-in” events, wonderful highs. Then the love life roller coaster: hot and cold, warm, simmer, then over and gone. In my free time, my down time and on my dates with my notebook, words started to show up. THINGS started to twinkle at me to say “hi”. Simple things with deep worlds.
“Odd Little Things” is a shorter book than “Madrona Grove” but it feels like it says more with less words. I hope you will consider adding it to you collection. This is the age of the chap book, staple binding n’ all. Collect them and SAVE a poet!
