Author has written 63 stories for Love, General, Family, Friendship, Life, Haiku, Nature, Historical, and School.

I realized I haven't written a poem in over a year.

But I also realized that I had left unpublished some poems that I suddenly needed to share.

So I'll be putting a few things out over the next few weeks. I don't know where that will leave me, creative-wise. Maybe I'll feel sudden inspiration. Most likely the constraints of daily life will suck me away from poetry again. But I'll try.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
