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!

More Sappy Love Poetry


For my husband's birthday two years ago, I wrote him a small collection of poetry. We had been married for three years at that time. It's not exactly Sonnets of the Portugese, but it told him what I wanted him to know.

Here is one of the poems.




WHEREVER YOU GO

Wherever you go, there will I be.

The riches of the world, Capitol Cities,

wondrous architecture, universities,

All these esteemed things once called me.

But none of them sing to me,

not like your voice does.

But none of them pull on me,

not like your voice does.

But none of them summon me,

not like your voice does.

All the capitol cities can fall to ruin,

All the universities, they can all burn,

architectural wonders, they can collapse.

For, I would barely hear their dying cries, for

Wherever you go, there will I be.
