Apologies to an Apple

My book of poems, 'Apologies to an Apple,' will be released in February - March 2009! It features an introduction by author and poet Katherine Grace Bond, as well as reviews from other writers, including Janet Lee Carey and Lorie Ann Grover.

Here's a selection:

Gentle Twilight

I visit
Nothing
In starry dreams.

I only find a silence
And an owl.

Where
Shall I go?

After daybreak crumples,
Where?

Can I reach out
Into empty darkness
And find a handful
Of stars?
