SUNDAY POETRY CORNER
Because I’ve scheduled several interviews with published authors and book spotlights on Thursdays in 2012, I’ve decided to move the original Thursday Poetry Corner to Sunday.
Sunday’s will now be the designated days when I or guest bloggers will share poetry, songs and short fiction.
Anyone interested in sharing your writing here please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send a microsoft word copy of your poem, song or story along with a photo and a short bio.
Although I spend most of my writing time working on novels, I do write poetry from time to time. Today I’d like to share one of those those with you.
by Sharon K Owen
She’s come a long way
from those cower-under-cover
evenings when clothes-draped
chair turned monster and
hissed maledictions pierced
sheetrocked bedroom walls.
It’s true she still has nightmares, but now
on pre-dawn charges, she’s always joined
by Michael. He’s good at flapping curtains
flashligting corners, frisking closets–holding
at bay one more time those ghosts
who will not rest in peace.
