"Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard." Anne Sexton

Her poetry and drawings can be found in various digital and print journals around the globe, and on the web.  She currently resides in New England and prefers the precipice of where the Atlantic meets the sand to the official looking office where she spends most of her time.

tiptoeing across creaking floors 
the moment will arrive
to compare our contrasts
by measurement of wisdom
or clumsy sculpture of human frailty

left alone far out in the dark
synergy drives us blind
sneaking around with disaster 
quietly hiding from each other  
in an abandoned place we still love

we are dissolved and rebuilt
in a continuous and perpetual wave
in carefully plotted formations 
gliding over the piers
breathless for nourishment
