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 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.


Don’t forget to enroll in my online creative writing class Simply Creating Fictional Characters beginning February 1, 2012. Just go to my website and click on classes and creative writing classes for more information and the sign-up sheet.
