"Lost in Enchantment"

Hi There!

I'm proud to launch this videoetry that was inspired by a poem my son wrote while traveling in New Mexico last summer.  Trying to find our way on the Mile High Road from Santa Fe to Taos, we kind of got sidetracked (OK, lost).  My son decided this would be the moment to launch his poetic musings.  Ha!

In case you don't know, New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment.  Hence the name of his poem.

Videoetries may be sparse over the summer as it is when I am the busiest with summer reading at the library.  Why won't some of you come up with video snippets?  Remember the rules above and get creating!

Ciao for now!  Hope you enjoy "Lost in Enchantment"!

"Goodnight, Little Girl"

Hi There!

My videoetry for this week was inspired by a poem I wrote for Poetic Asides, an online poetic community to which I regularly contribute.  The poetry prompt for that week was to write a reality based poem without metaphor or simile. 

Since this incident truly happened and my "little" girl has left the building (OK, so I CAN'T completely get away from metaphor), I thought the poem fit the prompt quite well.

The photographs of her come from our wonderful vacation out west last year.  Hope you enjoy "Goodnight, Little Girl"

Ciao for now!
