Summer Dreaming


Here is Lola, staring out into our backyard full of rabbits, chipmunks, birds and a friendly stray cat.  When I take pictures of my two kittens (now cats! I suppose, although they are still acting like kittens), I often wonder what they are thinking.  I would like to think that Lola is contemplating the quiet world before another round of thunderstorms moves in…

Right now, I am settling down for what I hope will be a productive summer of writing.  I have only written one new poem in the last few weeks, and I really want to remedy that situation. 

However, the good news is that I have been submitting, rather aggressively, in fact, and all the hard work has paid off.  I just got news tonight that The Fourth River wants one of my favorite poems!  And for fans of the prose poem, you might want to take a look at The Prose-Poem Project — some of my work can be found on pages (in the page turn format) 61 – 63. 

I will be taking a few days off from blogging to spend time with family and friends.  Stay safe everyone!  And have a great weekend!


  1. That is one cute cat! Thanks for sharing the picture.

    Congrats on the acceptances and good luck on the writing!

    Just read your work on The Prose Poem Project!
    Very exciting news.

    Lola looks positively Egyptian.

    To a productive summer. Keep me posted.
