I am so happy to say that four of my new poems will be published in the Fall issue of Nine Mile Magazine <—-click to go to site.

I am writing again.

Here’s one of the four:

Fountains and Shadows

You seek comfort, I know, but
your mother’s gone

and her house, a tiny widow’s
cottage, hides in a bed

of bittersweet, rosemary,
and the slight shadow

of a passing crow.

Oh, how this house
would glow every morning.

When you say good bye
the sun is up and flocks

of quiet birds cloud the sky.

And this is where our road turns,
by the lake like a mirage

under an autumn sky,
fish so hungry they’re

frenzied following a spray
of  mayflies, where once you said

Poppy, Poppy look!
It’s a fountain of a day.
