I remember the Christmas

she gave me

a set of hotel toiletries

from her vacation to Portugal.

Gold embossed tiny burgundy bottles




and an elegantly packaged

shower cap.

Should we have known

there was something

wrong with her

It’s a moment

For part of my workshop on e-publishing yesterday, I thought I’d better experience what it’s like to work with  At 11:30 p.m. last Thursday night I pulled together my haiku collection, figured that the poems theme either around the seasons or love, put them all other, made a book cover, and published them at 1:00 a.m.

What that says is, “It’s really easy to publish using Smashwords.”

That said, I didn’t like the format it spat out, and re-loaded the file a couple of times until I got it to my satisfaction, but that was simple too.

This is my latest book, “A Year in Love.”  If you’d like a copy, I’ve made it free with this coupon code until the end of June: QK59P

They said.

The end is near.

Maybe not.

I said.

He’s tougher than he looks.

Not this time.

They said.



So we sat holding our breath

when his stopped.


But morning came.

And the next.

And the next.

He’s tougher than he looks.

Told you so.
