She Too Four Voices in (Almost) Harmony – Available Now!

She Too: Four Voices in (Almost) Harmony is Ready to Tuck into Now!

Hey I am so excited to announce that the anthology, She Too: Four Voices in (Almost) Harmony, featuring the poetry of Rosemary Nissen-Wade, Leigh D.C. Spencer, Helen Patrice, and myself is now available through Amazon and PDF.


This is what the reviewers had to say:

Love, nature, life, death and a hint of witchery cast a spell over the poems in this compendium of work by four international poets. She Too opens the door on a conversation being held by four very different writers who have found common ground and, as the subtitle suggests, “almost” harmony. Pop culture, memory, sexuality and even beloved pets mark the entry points for this accessible collection of poetry.

–Collin Kelley, author of the collections Render and Slow To Burn


She Too, compiled by four wonderfully diverse but complementary poets, sparks with energy, spontaneity, wisdom.  Although the energy arises primarily from the voiced life-force of the writers, it is reinforced here by the fact that the book anthologizes April poems–poems written as part of worldwide celebrations of poetry month.  That spirit of shared celebration, concentrated exploration and disciplined flow, resonates throughout the poems, heightening the camaraderie the reader feels both among the poets, and with them. 

The poets are great story-tellers as well as lyricists, unwinding narratives that both amuse and enlighten. Many of the poems highlight the compromises sometimes required of women–a making-the-best-of circumstances provided by nature, finance, family, and, especially, loss–but each poet equally gives lessons in not-compromising–in how one holds secure the truths that make each of us both more whole and hopeful.  Great stuff!

–Karin Gustafson, author of 1 Mississippi, Going on Somewhere, Nose Dive, and (soon) Nice, who blogs as Manicddaily, and is one of the team of presenters at dVerse Poets Pub


 In She Too, Delaina, Rosemary, Leigh and Helen have created an intriguing blend of female voices from a diverse range of life experience and backgrounds. Reading it, you will find yourself in joy & pain, mourning, amused & in love. Their poetry is alive — which is about the best thing I can say.

–Brian Miller, owner dVerse Poets Pub


One of the many joys of the internet is the infinite breadth of opportunity for kindred souls to find each other and share their creative energy. She Too is a happy outcome of this phenomenon; the Venn Diagram on its cover depicting the relationships between the four poets is both informative and aesthetically pleasing as are the poems it contains. Each poet has her own distinct voice and I enjoyed the sensation of feeling as if I was becoming part of their group as I learned to recognise each voice and share the experiences and emotions expressed. She Too is a fascinating view into four poetic worlds which share points of contact while remaining decisively and endearingly individual.

–Michele Brenton, poet, novelist and editor, whose Fifty Shades of Blue was a Kindle poetry best-seller. Michele also writes humorous verse as Banana the Poet.

Launching Magic – in honor of the day

, , , ,


Today in 1969 Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. In honor of the occasion I am reposting…

Launching Magic

Do you remember that old washing machine?
We would climb on top and pretend it was our rocket ship.
Counting down, our voices getting louder with each number
10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. Blastoff!
In frenzy we began twisting the dials
that would send us to Armstrong’s moon.
I never saw the stars with you.
But I remember the day the motor
sparked to life and we both jumped off
neither of us ready to take that flight.

PAD 2014 – If I Were a Love Poem

, , ,

Day 15

Today’s prompt was to write a love or anti-love poem.

I had so much fun with yesterday prompt I decided to make double my pleasure so to speak pulling both prompts together.


If I Were a Love Poem

I would woo you
to keep you warm all night
dreaming of things we could do
bodies so close
breath held tight
nothing concealed
or untried.

I would have you wanting
as you tasted my words on your lips.
Your radiant smile
forever held in my stanzas
your sigh —
line breaks
setting our passion
to the right pace.

Faithful to the arousal
of words you read me
and again
vows of rapture
phonetic ecstasy
you might even share me
if I were a love poem.
