Today I Was Not Inspired

not by the bumblebee rolling in shaggy blooms

or  flowers orange as little suns
not by the stone dog guarding a neighbor's house 

or the purple burst of irises
No, today I was not inspired

In Case You Missed It...

A few weeks ago I posted about the delay in the online journal Sugar Mule #41: Women Writing Nature. Now it is up and ready for your reading pleasure. Two of my poems, "Star Coral" and "Come Sing" were published in this volume.  Just download the pdf and find the table of contents. Each name is a hyperlink that will take you directly to that person's poems. As well as my own, there is a cornucopia of wonderful writing by other women. Enjoy!
