flash dancing with dawn

hued dawn rises as
lightning flashes in spring skies—
mighty sol competes

Connie, I did not see a new poem from you but wanted to come here and tell you I left a note on my Easter poem. In case you are not notified on replies, that poem was written years ago for Floria. Remember how she simply vanished from the poetry world. She one day told me, "I'm finished with poetry " and she basically told me to kiss off as well!!

Yes I remember her Andrea. Maybe she was showing signs of Alzheimers? Sad when someone pulls away like that...same as Jan T. I am trying to write a new poem for a contest. It is 5:30 am before the girls awake and the noise begins. xxoo

I am thrilled with your first placement Constance. Thank you so much! My daughter and family, my two 7 yr. old granddaughters are moving in tomorrow, and will stay with us for a month before moving to Hilo on the Big Island, so I have had little time for poetry. I have been caring for the girls. xxoo : )
