Lost Weekend

Elizabeth drove away to where nobody knew her.

She did not share her destination, nor photos upon her return.

Once her feet warmed to the sand and cooled by the surf, she was home.

She sat on the beach and pondered until the sea breeze pondered her.

Swept away, her thoughts were no longer needed.

Three days later, she woke in her beachfront room and sighed, renewed.

This is my response to the weekly Six Sentence Story:

Blanket Statement

Blanket Statement

She curled up against his warmth, reaching her zen

Blanketed in her faux fur wrap, pleasures of Saturday morning

Coffee at reach, book in hand, it was a perfect day to just be

He brushed against her long, golden tresses, nuzzling for attention

Then, she heard it, the full out demand for her focus

She pattered across the cool floor to the fridge, then poured him a bowl of cream

This is my Six Sentence Story/Poem for this week. Thanks to Girlie on the Edge for the prompt word “Blanket” and for keeping the ideas coming.


The Short of It Pushcart Prize Nominations

I am over the moon! It is such an honor to be nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Thank you to Susi Bocks AND Congratulations for all those who made the list.

I Write Her

carte blanche - Pushcart Prize News! - carte blanche

Since the beginning, my goal has been to promote the work of poets and writers with a gift for expression in a minute fashion. I’m thankful that this reputable organization exists to help further that effort.

I am very happy to announce the following poets’ pieces were submitted to the Pushcart Prize Committee. Those selected were nominated for their contributions to the Sound of Brilliance Anthology—a collection of the best featured on the online publication. It was so hard to trim it down to only six pieces as the contributions were already the best of the best!

So, please give a round of applause and wish them the best!
