The Fragrance of Freedom

Thrilled to share my short story, ‘The Fragrance of Freedom‘ in JaggeryLit.


Videopoem: Ice

This poem ‘Ice’ first existed as a poem. As poem, it was published in An Anthology on Kindness by Origami Press. Then it became a poem in a painting.


The painting was shown  at the Fairfax Art Gallery in the Art and Poetry show.

Now it is a poem in a video. How it grows! As a videopoem it is in my contributor’s page in Your Impossible Voice. Thank you so much to Steven Beachy and Keith Powell of Your Impossible Voice for making it happen.

If the cat could talk, it would have agreed with Martha. It would have said, It’s not fair that Fidel leaves you out on this lonely lake front, that each time you rescue him, it’s worse than before.
