DW groupMy new book of poems is now available through my publisher and yours truly. It will be mid October before Amazon and Barnes & Noble will have it available. Best to purchase through my publisher : Dawn@bookshawaii.net or through me. Part of my royalties will go to a scholarship at my alma mater for the 2nd year. Purchases from Watermark support local businesses. To my Hawaii supporters, a February visit is penciled in right now. Thank you in advance, dear friends.

Poet Stuart Canton, thank you for subbing for Frank Graham who couldn’t be there for the Coffee & Poets podcast interview yesterday. Interviewers like you have the gift of making someone like me sound good. Thank you, too, for allowing me to read so many of my poems.

To the audience who gave up your Sunday morning, I so appreciated your support and presence. Lawrence Dinkins, Jr, you are perfect for creating this podcast.

Be sure to attend or tune in to the Coffee & Poets podcast interviews on the 3rd Sunday of each month at the Brickhouse Gallery at 2837 36th St. What an inspiring place and program to help keep poets alive in our community.

Some folks love Spring,

New faces in morning glories,

Cotton blouses and green toe nails.

Winter scarves stuffed into cedar chests.

 

Some folks love Fall.

The season of sounds.

 

Summer…I hate summers

In three digit Sacramento heat.

 

I brought Winter back today:

A mug of Winter –

Hot steamy cocoa –

While the city burned outside.

As it turned out, we didn’t have the podcast interview last Sunday but I did read poetry from my soon-to-be-released book of poems: Dangerous Woman: Poetry for the Ageless. And thanks to the audience, by request I read my poems on caregiving from I Am Somebody  and from my children’s Wordsworth the Poet books. AND, excerpts from my Teacher, You Look Like a Horse. What a supportive audience. I enjoyed the Q&A, telling stories of how I started writing poetry,  and my writing process, etc.

My interview has been rescheduled for August 20. Time and site will be posted later.

Yes, that’s my old handbag on the floor and that red feather boa used to add color to one of my poems.

Thank you for all of your who came through the 3 digit heat to support me.
