I just revised this poem. I revised it because after reading it with fresh eyes I realized that it needed something else, it needed a facelift, a poetic facelift.
I am going to try and practice what I learned at The Martha’s Vineyard Institute of CreativeWriting.
I was fortunate enough to attend this program a few weeks ago and I learned so much.
I came home with a new found enthusiasm to work on my poetry and short stories. So this is my first revision of an old post.

Again, I am going to talk about another wonderful woman I met over the weekend at this writing conference I attended.
Patricia Bell-Scott, I don’t even have words to describe the friendship that emerged. She is an award winning published author and all around humble human being.
Please check out her website:
Then purchase her newest book:
The Firebrand and the First Lady
I forgot it was Monday and that I should be sharing some music. In the spirit of this weekend-here are my choices.
Notice the recurring theme!
Because I am a queen that thing goes on-and-on.
You ever meet anyone who you instantly connect with? Someone who is amazing, happy and authentic. That is Lisa, I met her at a writer’s conference over the weekend and I cannot begin to tell you how kind she is. She touched my heart with her generosity and sincerity.
Check out her blog.
Oh, and her poetry because it is beautiful.
I made a new friend at a conference I attended over the weekend. Please stop by her and visit her blog. She was absolutely delightful and kind. She definitely had an infectious smile.
