Another One of My Published Poems

From my first chapbook:

GIANTS

we still live in a land of monstrous giants

we still live in a land of grand dragons

we still live in a land of poisonous vipers we still live in a land of terrible monstrosities

we still quake at the thought of them

we still shake in their presence

we still flee at the sight of them

and when they roar we still scream

no one stands still turns to face the giants

no one confronts the dragons

no one tangles with the vipers anymore

everyone wants to run

everyone wants to hide

everyone wants comfort

everyone wants complacency

who is still willing to overthrow the giants? who is still willing to slay the dragons? who is still willing to crush the vipers?

who is still willing to rid the land of its terrible monstrosities?

Walking for Charity Again

My treat after this morning’s 5K high intensity walk! (My fastest time is 41 minutes walking)

I’m prepping for next month’s Komen Race for the cure and I am raising money for this cause. If you would like to donate private message me with your email and I will send you the link to my page on the Komen site!
