Egrets Reading

unfinished book

The proofs for unfinished book, my new chapbook, came in the mail and they're lovely. The cover artwork was done by naia, and I'm really happy with the way it's turned out. Now, I just have to find a quiet time to carefully proof them and send them back!

This chapbook is a collection of my mainstream work, mostly cinquains and haiku with a few free verse poems thrown in for good measure.

Here's a sample of some poems included in the chapbook.


Teenage Winds
(my daughter squawked a bit at this one, she said, "Thanks!" in a protesting voice)

Prom Night
(my daughter likes this one better)

(Our Final Winter, on the same page, is also in the chapbook)
