What Are You Working on in May

What are you working on in May? Between the many activities of the grandchildren, worrying about mom and trying to finish my latest novel. Not enough time in the day. Keep you chin up…you can make it. That is my mantra now. So I am revamping some of my older posts and revisiting them. I did hire a great social media coordinator who is helping get more exposure on all my social media accounts to be on the lookout for those. Links are up top.


One of my Poems

The Chocolate Smocked Dress

A chocolate smocked dress
to the waist.
And a waist to knee length hem –
Scratchy white petticoat
that chafes my skin.
I want to scream,
I cry instead.

But my salty distress,
doesn’t move that dress,
above my head.
Where a pink plastic barrette
bites my scalp
and pulls my hair.

My twelve year old reflection
just stands and stares
Focusing on
its newest body part.
That mocks me red
through the stretched white threads

Just as Suzie, Mary Beth, and Brenda
in their plaid pleated skirts
Will turn their pretty heads
with snide whispers,
that I dread.

I remove my coat
to reveal my embarrassing:
Chocolate smocked dress
with a scratchy white petticoat
that chafes my skin.

It’s cold today.
So, my precious wool coat,
I will remain in.

For those who do have a little extra time this Sunday why not take a few minutes and visit some of my social media pages? The links are up at the top of the page. You might even want to check out my Amazon profile page and purchase a book or two to read. Got an idea for a fun and informative writer’s video?
