She Returns to the Floating World

Cold here, sad, raining. But a needed rain. We've lost a friend, who was floating for a while, pain free, in her bed by a window. Now completely free.

New review up here, in Galatea Resurrects #18, of She Returns to the Floating World, by Jeannine Hall Gailey. I like how the editor, Eileen Tabios, alternates between saying someone "reviews" or someone "engages" a book. I certainly engage! You can learn more about the book here or at Kitsune Books.

A poem, "Late Bloomers," in the new issue of Stirring: A Literary Collection.

The erratic weather is extraordinary this year. We've lost all the fruit on our trees due to early blossoms and then frost.

Your poem "Late Bloomers" is wonderful. Tame and wild in love with each other, yes.

Wonderful poem,'Late Bloomers'. To me it sounded of a soliloquy form when I read it aloud.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, Kathleen. Peaceful and healing vibes to you.

I have to say, this poem of yours might be favorite. GORGEOUS.
