Autumn Collapses

My friend Cathy gave me a can of Moxie soda today (which tastes delicious), so I thought I would write another poem using the word in her honor. Also, thanks to Melissa Craig for letting me use one of her breathtaking photographs.

autumn collapses

into dawn, a heavy heart

and I can no longer feel

precarious flush skin

or shallow moxie.

Writing Spaces: Part Deux

I read an article last year on where famous authors do their writing. There were some remarkably inspiring locations and it made me wonder where the authors I know (the majority being small press and indie) write their stories, poetry, and other words. I collected photographs from ten talented writers last year. This year, I invited twelve more to do the same. They span the spectrum from paranormal to poetry and children’s fiction. Thank you once again to all the writers who let me into their homes and special places with their photographs: Paula Walker Baker, Melissa Craig, Michelle Franklin, Kelly Stone Gamble, Tracy James Jones, Dan Leicht, Dionne Lister, Jeanne McDonald, Charity Parkerson, Poppy Ruth SilverJacqueline E. Smith, and Danielle Thamasa.
