PUBLISHED POEMS

The year was 1982 and New Worlds Unlimited published two of my poems in their anthology, Dreams of the Heroic Muse.

LOVE VISITED

Love visited me once
on a moonlit night
lasting six months;
I grew,
was nourished
became almost human
as my being sought a home.
I held the moon at arm’s length
and watched it grow small
as its certain cycle
continued to darkness.
The baying of dogs rings untrue,
the sky is empty.

I wrote the following poem in remembrance of my grandmother.

ROSES

Roses were her love,
great flowing rainbows of pink, red and white.
Her children, small strangers would come
and each take home
a fist full of gaily colored affection.

Roses were her love,
And when rest had finally come from roses
roses were hers,
Elegant creations of empty colors
looking out on empty eyes.

Roses were her love,
And now her small garden
has yet to discover
a rose.
