Please use your back arrow if you want to return to this page after reading one of the poems. The links at page bottom on the poems are for my homepage or one of the two primary poetry listings. Thanks. On this page you'll find just-completed poems at the TOP and some older favorites.



(I'm still in the process of listing where poems were published)

The majority of remaining poems don't have the links where they appeared in the journals,  but published poems credit the journal on my webpage.

HERE is where I keep some other recent/featured poems. This list was getting too long.

It's impossible to keep up with links to publications, so  as of 2010 I've begun putting some up periodically (and can't guarantee that the journal will archive them for long).. I've been publishing since 2002. Many of those journals have gone under with no archives or changed websites. Some are print. It's too time consuming to search for those still online. At some point I'll need to go through and ferret out bad links from this list, too. I've not yet put in 2011 publications.


November/December 2010 publications:

Three poems are in Ken Again. You can read those HERE.

 A poem in Wild Goose review, The Redheaded Stepchild, two in Outlaw Poetry and  I was also featured in The Nervous Breakdown. My poem is HERE and the interview, HERE. S.A. Griffin, poet/actor and co-editor of The Outlaw Bible for American Poetry, gave one of the editors my name. He looked at my work and sent the invite. Thanks, S.A. 

Gean Tree Journal of short forms is also out! Go to Gean Tree to check it out three haiga with Geoff Sanderson. Each comes up one at the time, so hit 'next' underneath to see all three. A good issue to browse through if you like haiga, haiku, tanka, and more. 

Also, The Red Fez published their journal. Find my poem in it at HERE  You'll also find find poets such as A.D. Winans, Lyn Lifshin, Puma Pearl.

A collaboration with Mary Hillier (art) is in the Blue Fifth Review 

Three poems were in Outlaw Poets  earlier in 2010 (Melt, Resizing Norman, Rape Camp)


My husband and I are in the 'just out' haigaonline. This is the family issue. I used photos he took when he helped convoy a boat from Nassau to Norfolk (they went on to Canada) to create my haiku. He went through many areas quickly that I sailed /motor-sailed more leisurely in my 1977 trip, written about in my book Sea Trails.

My Christmas Eve poem, Snow Globe, was in Blogging Along Tobacco Road
and my Christmas Eve haiga was in Ink Sweat & Tears , both on Christmas Eve day

Spring 2012 poems in The Dead Mule

And last, but not least, a 'self-interview' between Scott Owens and myself about our Nature of Attraction collaboration is in Referential Magazine.
