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:

Happy reading and write on!

Word Flight

My words erase and scrape,
Visions of insight.
Let all words take flight;
Scatter aloft, light.

I paint a word landscape,
Visions of insight.
Let all words take flight
In colors tonight.

Letters fall and escape
Visions of insight.
Let all words take flight;
Leave my blank page white.

Magic muse sculpts to shape
Visions of insight.
Let all words take flight;
Dance high, muse delight.
