Proudly Presents:


Exclusive Poems from one of her Books:

"In Secluded Recesses"

Words come dancing out of
The unknowable mind
Each following the other in a sequence
unbidden by the poet
Who writes the words
Grateful for their insistence
Astonished by their mystery
Discomfited by what they reveal.

ALCHEMIST

O you alchemist
You have transmuted
My base metal heart
Into gold
In your laboratory
Of love.

His heart big-banged with love
Creating galaxies into
The eleventh dimension
Each particle
Chaos at its center.

ECHO

You were reflected in the water
Beautiful as Narcissus
Bitter wind fractured the image
Only reeds remain where you were
I'll search for you forever.

Lover where are you?

Lover where are you?

Lost in a dark wood
With inarticulate trees
Where is the poet
To guide me in my journey
To light my way with his words?
