Today I am guest blogging on my friend Joanne Faries’ blog Wordsplash. Please visit her wonderful site.

Since it is also Sunday’s Poetry Corner, I am sharing one of my poems below. Hope you enjoy it.


The Wind

Something about how, when it blows,

I am moody, unsettled.

A child again.

Waiting in the dusty west Texas heat.

Searching the endless horizon

of barren earth and cloudless sky

for the first sight of Uncle Bill’s Buick.

My escape to the oasis called Fort Worth.
