Some Stuff About Me:

I'm a Minnesota Girl, living in the south. I tell my friends I try not to talk and think like a Yankee, but sometimes I slip up!

One of mine

I started writing poetry again in 2002, some 25 years after I'd stopped. I had forgotten how much it meant to me. It was easy to start again with Haiku.

The Lightning Series

Lightning shreds the calm.
Power immeasurable.
Then hostile silence.

God’s semaphore
Marking the sky again with
His own mystery.

Some vertically
Some snaking across the sky
Lightning calls to you.

Each day’s symbol
Lightning storms remind you that
You miss the calm sky.

Lightning flashes thrice
Conducting a symphony
Of storm and thunder.

Opening your mind
Bolts of lightning "whisper" that
Greater power exists.
