One of my poems, "Sleepless Beauties," appears in the latest edition of The Innisfree Poetry Journal. Go here to read it.
I wrote it several years ago, a time when I seemed to have a majority of friends who had teenage daughters. Their experiences made me think of my own teenage years, and my sister's teenage years. At the same time, I was seeing the teenage girl years, second hand, through the eyes of the mom. I was reading fairy tales and reading blog postings about fairy tales. All of those influences came together into the poem that you'll see when you navigate on over to The Innisfree Poetry Journal.
