Lexington Poetry Month Day 19: today I took a walk by myself at one of my favorite places while the kids were at camp. A little park in Morehead that's just the perfect quiet little spot to soak in some nature. Poem title: “Salve”
Lexington Poetry Month Day 17: Berries are a taste of all things good about summer. I have so many memories wrapped around them. This poem is dedicated to the berries of summer. Poem title: “Pining” (full poem available via link in profile)
Lexington Poetry Month Day 16: I wrote this poem in honor of father's day today. Thinking of all the time dad and I spent together in this little S10 pickup truck when he taught me how to drive. Poem title: “Backroads”
Lexington Poetry Month Day 15 (full poem link on profile): today's poem was wholly inspired by my wonderful experience at the Red Oak's Bioblitz. I keep saying it, but that place is magic. Today was magic. It was such a gift to be in the presence of so many knowledgeable biologists who deeply care about sharing their knowledge with everyone, but especially children. These kids are our future. Thank you to all who made today possible. I always leave these events filled with gratitude.
Lexington Poetry Month Day 13: written after an evening spent engaging in conversation about self and identity; about the pull to leave or stay home; about how where you grow up defines a large piece of who you are. It reminded me of my own struggle when pregnant with Bryum - realizing that my kids would not be born in Kentucky, and that to them, their birthplace would be out west in Oklahoma instead of the place that defines so much of who I am. Poem title: “Identity”
Wrote a found poem for #lexpomo from RavenWolf's Spells of Abundance-- . . Enhance this Spell: Twenty-Four Angel Names . . Perform when the moon is in Leo to gain the generosity of others. Perform on a Sunday in the hour of Venus. Accentuate with a rattle or drum, let Michael raise it, the Queen of Angels speak it, Raphael inspire it, Sandalphon pray it, Uriel strengthen it, Watchers protect it, Yahriel place the glory of the moon on it, let Zodiac angels seal it, and Spirit bring it through time and ...
Lexington Poetry Month Day 12: today was such a gift. Time with dear friends was much needed, even with the downpour. Lots of thoughts today about articles I've been reading regarding so many extinct species, and I just wonder how different my children's life experiences are from mine because of it, and what it will be like when they reach my age. Poem title: “Wayward” . . . #lexpomo#amwriting
Lexington Poetry Month Day 10: lots of thoughts and feels today culminating in this poem that was mostly written on my phone while riding in the ranger from one piece of the farm to another. Poem title: “Extinct” (I couldn’t fit it all; link to the entire poem in profile) Check it out. This one hit me in the feels.
Lexington Poetry Month Day 7: I am tired and it's not my finest work. However, I made a commitment to this, so here I am, laying down and ready to be asleep, but giving it what I have left at the end of Friday of a busy week. Thanks so much to everyone who is following my poetic endeavor. Poem title: “Weathered” #lexpomo
Lexington Poetry Month Day 6: A long day of inspiration found in various places and pieced together amid my quiet evening contemplation while T had her first ukulele lesson. Poem title: “Gospel” #lexpomo
Lexington Poetry Month Day 5: ruminating about the state of the world (as I often do) and about the wild things I so love and the people I know who also love them. As the old timers always used to say, I’m going to tuck these away “For Hard Times” #lexpomo#poetrywriting
Lexington Poetry Month Day #3: Today's poem is dedicated to Thelia, my wild child who reminds me to pause in the moment and look at the flowers, who howls with joy at the smallest things, and who delights in spending the day in the woods. May we all remember to live our life like her. Titled “Untamed Souls” #lexpomo
Here is today's poem. I wrote it after a walk around my parents' backyard (and a trip to their berry patch) while I thought about all of the things that have changed since I walked around that same yard as a kid. Lexington Poetry Month Day 2: Summer Loving #lexpomo

derby day* there’s chatter in the ranks at the purple martin penthouse grackles quackle taptoeing around on limestone slabs and a little sparrow sings his heart out to his muse the rising sun folks in their finest julep slur a mix of pomp and prep they put their money down on the deep breaths inhaled through the nostrils they think will cross the finish line first the neighbor and her live-in argue tying strands of junk drawer string to her rose bush trying to coax it’s wild haired branches into ...
