And here are the poems!

of lint and life
waits for wind
to disseminate

~~~ Diane M. Davis


Shared Desire
Gray hair, untamed,
just like mine.
We hope for a breeze
at the clothesline.

~~~ Cindy Breedlove


This is proof--
even a flower
can have
a bad hair day.

~~~ Cynthia Cotten



Why do you
revile me,
repulse me?

~~~ mlyearofreading



She fastens
her children
to parachutes
preparing them
for an inconspicuous
invasion of
cultivated lands.

~~~  Diane Mayr


Helen meant to blow,
but instead she inhaled.
Then she spat and coughed.

~~~ jennifer-d-g


Sunships of wonder
waiting to ride
the breeze,
to create their own worlds.

~~~ Kathy Q.


together we grew
then the winds came
scattering us afar
it's time
to bloom apart.

~~~ melissa


Wishing to be 5 yrs old again.
With wisdom
to know how great 5 is.

~~~ Amanda



A hundred tiny wisps of hope
Waiting to be sent into the world.

~~~ Sue Douglass Fliess


Just one big blow
Fly away fairies
Bring back wishes
of hope,
happiness and love

~~~ Anne Mckenna


Sphinx Sperm?
Soft, white and tiny
dandelion seeds twirl gently on
a mythical breeze.

~~~ John Mutford

I have lost my smile,
but don't worry.
The dandelion has it.

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
