I am a Story Seamstress

Lately, I am more than writing. I am more than editing. I am more than revising my manuscript. Instead, I am concise, and direct, and intentional with every word on the page.

Sunday Celebration for Wednesday Poetry (and a YOUR TURN PROMPT)

Somehow August has arrived, with sunshine and summer in tow. It felt so far away, back in March, when isolation started. But here we are.

Poetry Explosion ~ Not Quite 4th of July

Happy July (even amongst the tattered reality of our season this year). It didn’t quite feel like Independence Day this time around, but I am hopeful to press on and not stop pressing until we can overcome and once again, gather together as family and friends, as humankind. I’m speaking out of isolation, out of racism, out of knee-deep misinterpretations and misunderstandings and misgivings and all kinds of hate…because underneath […]
