Today is day 3 of Heart Week on She’s in Prison in honor of all those born with congenital heart defects. On August 25th, I am walking in the St. Louis Congenital Heart Walk in memory of my sister Rebecca Lyn and in support of friends, new and old, and their families. Please help me raise awareness and funds for CHD research by donating and/or finding a walk in your city!

I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear sister. I, too, lost a sibling. You write beautifully.
Thank you Pam. Means a lot.
“ignoring a picture frame to try and simplify the answer, an answer that is already simple” <– there you had me. your matter-of-fact style is really moving.
and i'm sorry for your loss, too. i'm amazed how people find any words after tragedies like that, and even more amazed when they can channel them in poetry, like you do.
Thank you so much. I take pride in writing about the realities of living daily life so I appreciate your comment. Thanks again!
I love Simple Counting (others as well), and I agree with you about poetry being more than flowery nature scenes. I write under a pen name so I can be free to fully dump the heart about the realities of life. Your poems were like a little therapy for me this morning.
Glad you enjoyed them! Thanks for reading.
Your poetry is quite refreshing – simple, to the point, accessible, purposeful.
As one with heart disease, I symphatize with you.
Thank you for reading! I wish you the best.
