no matter his attempts to forget them.

Cast Out of Eden: Our Tragic Kingdom

Excerpt: We were supposed to come back

by the bridge,

before the guitar solo,

but the resolution never found

its third verse.

Celebrating National Poetry Month

Free books of poetry! Hey, you don’t see that often, do you? Here at the blog, I am celebrating poetry, not only by offering the poetry boot camp and providing excerpts of my own poetry from my latest book, Weathered Fragments, Weathered Souls,
I would also like to share the gift of poetry.

So, I am giving away one signed copy of both of my books, plus other poetry books I have enjoyed. Free. What is the catch? This is a contest, so I can’t give books to everyone (would love to, if I could), but I will do a drawing to determine who will get the books. I will have at least 3 prize books, but if there is enough participating, I will add more.

How do I enter, you ask? Easy.

#1 Like any posts from this month (April). This includes the blog, Facebook, and Twitter.

#2 Double entries if you Share, Retweet, or Press This (via WordPress).

Winners chosen around the first of May. Winners will be posted and notified. You have 7 days to claim before I redraw.

Sound good!

Let’s celebrate poetry!

Excerpt: Medusa: The Lost Daughter

From “Chamber of Silence”

In silence comes wisdom, for no other
voices can be heard outside one’s own, when
the nakedness of the mind becomes free.

Excerpt – Medusa: The Lost Daughter

From “The Punishment”

One can seek forgiveness only if one
confesses one’s crimes. For without such an
admission, one cannot atone for her
crimes, repent, and accept her punishment.
