Bloggers PhotoThere really isn't much to tell that hasn't been covered in my poetry. Love this site, love the new friends I've made. I am a single woman, work full time, family grown and on their own. When I was in highschool all I wanted to do was write. Life got in the way. Now I have all the time I need to indulge my passion.

My newest contest has been posted. Like the last one this will be divided into categories ( serious and humorous) and your title must be "Last Night I Dreamt". It must be a new poem , date written and which category you wish it to be judged under should be on the bottom of the entry. Limited placements, 5 per category. Last time there were only 4 humorous entries so they all placed. you might want to take that into account when writing your poem. thanks, now wow me.
