why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

ode to breakfast


I used to love breakfast, for any meal, but now I can’t eat traditional breakfast foods.  Here are seven lines from my “ode to breakfast”:

before my diagnosis I could eat pie for breakfast
graham cracker crust
butterscotch filling
meringue top

great grandma’s pumpkin recipe

day old pie
even better
