Midlife Margaritas

Recently I had the awesome opportunity to interview a real-life standup comedian! I have to say I was nervous. Would I ask the wrong questions? Would I sound like a fangirl? Would she be able to tell I was slurping a margarita? Let me tell you Karen Morgan is the easiest, friendliest person to talk to. She had me laughing during the whole interview! Whew!

I had seen her videos and had her on my list of top women comedians. My last post had one of her video clips too. Did you know she used to be a trial attorney? I guess that would lead me to standup too. She’s a mom and wife from Georgia but now lives in Maine. I asked her if her family ate lobster often (insert eyeroll here) to which she replied, not really. Mostly when we have out of town guests. (Most people who…

Ten Things of Thankful – July 10 2020

It’s TTOT time! Let’s get at it!

  1. Family Fun Night with the apartment community. We each did watercolors of fruit slices with a Zoom lesson from our CARES team. They plan all kinds of fun activities and this is one of many they have done as a workaround from the virus. They even provided sodas for our adventures, along with a bag of art supplies to do this. undefined
  2. Success for my God children who were able to buy a new-to-be-built house. Thankful for low interest rates.
  3. Maintenance crew fixed the air conditioner for good. It took a couple of trips to seal the deal, but it is running like a champ! I am so grateful to be able to call and let them worry about the how tos.
  4. Two poems were accepted for publication in an online magazine. There were two very tender poems, to me, and I am glad to find them a home.
  5. Support in the writing community from various channels. Writing sprints, poetry critique group, writing support online are all wins!
  6. Getting to read lots of real life stories.
  7. Fireworks on the T.V. I enjoyed them just as much if not more because of heat and bugs and lots of people could all be a non-issue.
  8. Getting to read a beautiful books of poems for someone who is going to be publishing.
  9. Sunglasses.
  10. YOU! What’s up in your life? How about coming online and sharing your lovelies? Won’t you join me for a picnic? undefined

Weaving 101 Intersections of Life

You never know

from row to row

when the loom is set

for random weft.

The thrill of gliding

the shuttle rarely idling

seeing the intersections

as the beater changed sections.

It takes patience and pulse

for final results

hope is alive for beauty

that comes with such duty.

At the end of the rows

when at last threads are closed

and the fringe is displayed

one is rarely dismayed.

Such are life’s intersections

from various directions

the results as we tarry

may not be intentions.

The fabric of life

is, as it is, blended

bringing color and light

to be naturally vivid.


This is my response to the Six Sentence Story Prompt “Fabric.”

Thank you to Denise for challenging us each week!

Another awesome Poet on my Awesome Poet list!

I Write Her

Early Birds

How I hate those poets who rise at dawn
to write a couple hours before work—
Wallace Stevens especially, Emperor of Ice-Cream,
my ass! You’re not the only one with a day job.

And don’t get me started on Ted Kooser,
who should be staying up late in the flatlands
to watch the milky way flow instead of drinking dawn
from a bucket some early bird probably pooped in.

My muse sleeps in a bottle and does not awake
until neon lights buzz. She inspires the moon
and I do her bidding beneath flickering televisions,
whipping a ballpoint to get every last drop.

The only time you’ll see me in the stark morning light
is if I’ve had to walk home drunk and forgotten the way.

Holding On

As the soft skin of your leg
conceals the strength of your thigh,
I lean in close to hear…
