This Sooty Darkness

Paul Cezanne's The Stove in the Studio made me think about the process of art and writing. Read This Sooty Darkness on the site of The Lake.

My Addiction to Impressionist Snowscapes

 Oh, yes, this is true. I can't get enough of snowscapes in the impressionist tradition.  My poem, "My Addiction to Impressionist Snowscapes" appeared only in print in Lake Effect (v26/Spring 2022).

As I Turn Off the Light

 I am pleased and honored to have continuous support from Turtle Island Quarterly for my environmental poetry.  "As I Turn Off the Light" is about moths and moonlight and our sad future. (TIQ #22, 2022)

Apocalypse Women

 My right foot leads with literary poetry, but my left foot follows with speculative poetry. I rarely write from prompts, but I couldn't resist a call for ekphrastic piece that does not exist and is also speculative. I was thrilled to place it in Eye to the Telescope. (Issue #44, April 2022)

Grudge Day

 "Grudge Day" is a fun prose poem with a surreal twist. Published in Coastal Shelf (Spring 2022).

Moonhood

 "Moonhood" is a poem for women without children. Published in Writing in a Woman's Voice (Mar 12, 2022).

I Rock the Ulu

"When in Doubt" and "Bedridden"

 Here are two poems--a ghazal (which seemed appropriate for "Bedridden"), and a light hearted poem about taking chances ("When in Doubt") published in Canada's White Wall Review  on Jan 6, 2022. Be patient scrolling . . .the older posts will show up if you linger on the last entry. 

First publication in 2022!

 What luck to land in the premier issue of Land Luck Review (Issue 1 2022) which published my prose poem  A Russian Scientist in LaunderLand

Dead Low Water + Look, Listen, Stop

 https://www.newnotepoetry.com/winter-2021 brought some of my wilder environmental poems to light: "Dead Low Water" and "Look, Listen, Stop."

Home Health Nurse

 "Home Health Nurse" found a home in American Diversity Report (Dec 12, 2021). Alas, it has been archived and I can no longer find it online. (Watch for my next book?)

You Shall Not Muzzle the Ox

 "You Shall Not Muzzle the Ox" is an aberrant sonnet about writing and threshing grain. Published in Cider Press Review 23.5, 2021.

Shouting at Wildflowers in Three Acts

I'm not sure where the line is drawn between science fiction poetry and speculative poetry, but I'm happy so many of my poems are published in qualify sf venues. This poem was published in  Silver Blade (#51, October 2021).
