Two Poems in Earth’s Daughters Journal

Two of my poems appeared in issue #91 of the literary journal Earth’s Daughters this summer. The theme was ‘lines.’ The poem “Esther’s Last Story,” as about my grandmother telling me about her humiliation standing in bread lines during the Great Depression. The other one is called “Bone Notes” and is about my mother’s wonderful habit of doodling and sketching. She would start with a line or squiggle and turn this into beautiful and complex portraits. She used to draw on all sorts of things. I would gather these up and save them often playing with them like paper dolls.

I love this journal which is part of a women’s collective. See more at www.earthsdaughters.org.
