Today’s Poetry Corner introduces and spotlights the poetry of Joanne Faries, a friend and fellow Trinity Writers Workshop member. Check out her blog   www.wordsplash-joannefaries.blogspot.com.

The following is a poem by Joanne. It’s a good representation of our talent and a demonstration of why she has her poems published in so many publications.


By Joanne Faries

three wee cousins

sprites in red dresses

torn leotards, hair bows askew

dollhouse turf wars

transformed angels into


punishment dispensed

lectures, naps


Originally from the Philadelphia area, Joanne lives in Texas with her husband Ray.
Joanne has recently published her first novel, My Zoo World. It is available in both paperback and Ebook formats.
Also published in Doorknobs & Bodypaint, Off the Coast, Orange Room Review, and River Poets Journal, she has stories and poems in Shine magazine, Magnapoets, Up the Staircase, and Silver Boomer anthologies.
She is also the film critic for the Little Paper of San Saba.  This is quite a distinction since San Saba is a town with no theater.
