Rated 5 stars on Goodreads. In a short 219 word poem, I try to put into words the eternally inexpressible quality of a once-in-a-lifetime love. Inspired by my own life experiences of late, I can honestly say that if this isn't the real thing, then it is the most wonderful of dreams.... (I'm sure it's the real thing.)

Seventeen poems, divided into three chapters. There's some free verse, some rhyme, and two limericks thrown in for good measure. The main threads are choices, both ill-fated and wise; romantic love; nature; birds; and finding a voice in the world. Degrees of choice, degrees of fate; Find your voice before it's too late. By turns sweet, sexy, pointed and provocative, I pass a torch on to you.
Gonna Gotta Let My Hair Down

When all around you are pulling their hair out - let yours down. In eight poems I present my thesis on why it's best to prepare to create in the face of destruction. Other threads are love, freedom, equality, and the futility of an obsession with competition. In the end, peace reigns and all can live happily ever after, if they choose to love - and take responsibility for their various fates.
Spectacles Of Love

In six free verse poems I use as jumping points each of these, considered as ideas: The Vase, The Whirling Wind, The Pyrrhic Victory, The Eccentric, The Television Set, and The End Of Time. Each idea becomes a motif for a poem, and I discover new things about my newest, truest love. Crafted to illuminate and entertain, I invite the reader to find their own passions inspired by the idea-poems.

Series: Poetry By Heart, Book 5. Price: Free! Words: 2,130. Language: English. Published: June 10, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
In thirteen poems I explore the outer reaches of what we can see, and beyond. I discover that freedom is but illusion - it is wildness to which we should aspire, and those that chain us are the bane of existence. In the end, I wish for all to know what it is to be on the loose, experiencing the essential wildness of our nature. No adult-only content.
