A Woman’s Voice is a small book of poems that echo my inner feelings about my southern upbringing, living in the north, love, and growing older.

Excerpt from ‘A Woman’s Voice: Book Of Poems

                                                  My Mother’s Vegetable Garden

32

My mother’s vegetable garden grew in gray dry dirt
Pole beans twisted themselves around gnarled brown sticks
Stuck in that same gray dirt
Rows and rows of bushy headed collard greens
That were our relief from biscuits and beans
Pole beans, collard greens
Tomatoes ripe and juicy
Okra spiny and straight
I watched her from the window of the house
Skirt tied in knots at her knees
Bent over she worked pruning and weeding

Later, harvest time, I followed behind her
With basket in hand
As she pulled our very existence
From that same gray dry dirt

Why goats in a tree? Listen.

Because most of the time women feel like they’re up a tree screaming for help. I Know I did.  And if you’re not one of these women, a bunch of goats up a tree is just funny.
