A Selection of Published Poems to Read -Click title below
I am a crone writing in an uncommon common voice about people’s stories, death, aging, and witnessing our culture, while I put shoulder to the wheel of change and hope with all I write. Now retired from Interfaith Ministry in the death and dying field, I live in Mexico and visit my thriving family in northern California.
In 1978 I received a California Arts Council Grant to establish a rural poetry series; also co-published a small regional arts journal; was a co-owner of an alternative literature service; and produced poetry readings and performances.
My poems have been published or are forthcoming in a variety of journals and publications such as:
Muddy River Poetry Review
The Voices Project
The Avalon Literary Review
Adelaide International Magazine
Ginosko Literary Review
Only poems that have been published are included on this website. On the poem page is the publication date and where it was published.
