Currently I am writing another novel, historical fiction, based on the life of a real person (my great grandmother) who lived an extraordinary life in Colorado when the west was still wild. When I finish that book, I plan to play with poetry. I've written a few poems and find the process challenging and fun. To me,writing a poem is similar to completing a crossword puzzle--both processes being word games.
So . . . this month I am posting a poem I wrote. It was published this year in the Gold Man Review. Please let me know if you like it.
