A Taste of Gin

Janelle Fine–writer, poet, artistic director/ editor–asked me to participate with so many other greats… enjoy!

SUBMIT to: Unpublished Narratives…read the call below!




Who are you? 
Why are you here? 
What do you want?

We seek the most ordinary. The quietly resilient. The warrior who, as Sufi poet Hafiz describes, courageously takes off his or her mask and “sits, giving, like an illumined planet on the earth.” The unassuming heroes and heroines who, perhaps inspired by their own experiences, are finding creative ways to make a difference. Send your unpublished narratives, the ones held in the body and etched in skin. Send your real and authentic and inspiring stories. Witness. Speak up. Be witnessed.

flecks of cold

falling slip

without balance

temperature drops 

“ice” reads the mirror


these mountains

not rocky

only the distance

seems just as close

as far


these dream like whispers

to writing allies 

a break upon us 

a stones throw into frozen
