I am an aspiring writer in the Kern River Valley. This blog is a "test kitchen" to try different writing styles and to work through the many rejections and the handful of acceptances my work has received. But no matter what other people say about my writing, at least my mother thinks I'm a good writer!

Granddad Memories Poem


I have only four memories of you left:

Teasing your whispy white hair into improbable shapes,

Waking you in your duck-patterned sleeping bag with my hugs,

The taste of Frosted Flakes,

and the feeling that you liked me.
