Journey

Here’s a companion poem to the one I posted yesterday: Journey   Wanderer, wanderer where do you go, all alone on the road when the wild winds blow? Where did you come from and why did you leave, who are the loved ones you left home to grieve?   Hunched in your cloak with your […]

Stego Stomp

This one is for my son, as he chose the prompt: dinosaurs. My first dinosaur poem. Stego Stomp Come into the stomping ground Best party to be found DJ Rex will never fail Every dino shake your tail Through the valley we will romp Time for the Stego Stomp Clap your plates to the beat […]

An Invitation to our Readers

As Anne mentioned in a previous post, we are having an internal contest. The Museling who writes and posts the most poems between July 15, 2014 and September 1, 2014 wins a writing book of their choice from Amazon.com. Expect the blog to be a crazy place, as posts will be unscheduled. We are posting […]

“Only Traces”

More rhymes. Only Traces To find your dreams within the pages of a magazine would seem impossible if not obscene. Cut out words and pictures, they say that represent your future come what may, anything to keep the fear at bay. To peruse the air-brushed faces and wish for far off places, I languish here […]

Because It’s Tuesday . . .

A Token for the Train

I love writing in rhyme, and I have a large number of poems lying around that rhyme. I’m especially fond of this one, which I’ve worked over a number of times.    A Token for the Train   I clatter down dim staircase to seek shelter from the rain, duck beneath a turnstile as I’m […]

Chiaroscuro hits virtual shelves

In March I announced the upcoming publication of my poetry e-book Chiaroscuro. I am excited to announce that it is now published and available for purchase. Chiaroscuro is a poetry book about the contrast and balance between light and dark. It’s a journey through a crumbling world that leaves a gritty taste. It shines light […]

Inspiration through Participation

This being National Poetry Month, I challenged myself once again to writing more poetry. Last year I wrote a lot of new poetry, but didn’t make the goal of a new one every day. I followed one community’s challenge, and some days the prompt simply didn’t work for me or I tired out. This year, […]

Poetry book news

One of my goals for this year was to publish my poetry collection Chiaroscuro. Last year I researched publishers, and compared their sites and stats. I made a list of what I most wanted in a publisher. It wasn’t about the royalty. It was: clear information print options listed response time ease of submitting (email) I […]

What we write about

A recent discussion among us Muselings had us musing on subjects to write about. Sice I am reading Natalie Goldberg‘s Writing Down the Bones , in which she suggests generating just such a list, I volunteered to post mine — mine and Natalie’s.  Here it is: What to write about, the list so far Write about a favorite […]
