Writing Conference Hurrahs!

A few hours ago, with exhaustion pooling at my ankles, I arrived home from the PNWA Writing Conference.

Fly Away…July Poetry 2019

The first Sunday of each month is always a poetry celebration. And today, with a summer breeze, come two dancing souls ready to delight. I happened upon these western tiger swallowtail butterflies in my yard this afternoon and couldn’t resist the inspiration. Enjoy the poem below along with my Wednesday Whims of Poetry page: https://stepsinbetween.com/poetry/ Courtship to One Hundred (Dance of the Western Tiger Swallowtail) Courtship sways on blossom-stained breeze, […]
