About This Author

Hi there!

I'm a grandmother, a nursing educator, an avid knitter and an aspiring writer. I created this page for family and friends who expressed interest in reading my writing. It is mostly poetry with a few short stories sprinkled here and there .

The poem on this page is one my Mom favored. The collectible trinket is from a needlework picture of Longfellow's home she completed. Mom loved poetry and was an avid reader. She and my brother,Rasputin , inspire me still.

I have a published form modification called the Rondel Grand Modified; it is located here:

Drop me a note by clicking on the "Contact Me" link above and let me know you stopped to visit.

Happy reading and write on!

Feathery Teardrops
White, fluttering shapes
Hover against an
Indigo sky drop.
Tangled crystals snag breezes,
Effortlessly air sailing.

Snowflakes tentatively glide,
Never loud, always soft,
Organize gently in falling waves;
Water cloud droplets puff silently
Falling, falling, sliding, all
Lopsided, alighting askew.
Ageless, tousled, timeless
Knifelike frozen patterns descend,
Elegant in hexagonal symmetry of

                             ... soundless winter tears.
