Here is the picture I posted yesterday, filling in for the lovely laurasalas  while she is traveling for school visits.




And here are the poems.


NO ESCAPE
My mind feels clouded,
A prisoner of life,
Will I ever escape?
Who knows!!

-- Anne McKenna



Honeycomb,
mass of hexagonal
wax, a lattice of
windows, a good day's
work won

--Kristy Dempsey



Behind an ocean of cool
concrete waves
I sigh
and hide
from summer's
punishing heat.

--sister AE



O 2 C as A flI.
multiple images
parading bI.
Just like TV,
Seems 2 B
2 many 2 name
yet, all the same.

"Repetition".

Water whispers--
saplings sway--
glimpses of a world
just
out
of
reach.
I weep.

Hop, Bop, Bebop
Three young grandkids
hop, bop, bebop.
One tired Grandma
needs them to stop.

--Cindyb



Fish scales shimmer
across the sunny day;
only the dark
allows us to see.

-- Kathy Q.




Nose pressed against the fence.
Eyes, too.
Toddler wants what’s greener
on the other side.

--Becky Levine



Puzzle pieces
placed upon
nature's background.

--Marianne H. Nielsen

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
