Her poetry and stories have appeared recently in Melusine, Home Planet News, the We’Moon calendar and the anthology Alice Redux, a collection of stories about Alice in Wonderland.

Delphic (Projection #3)

The futurist’s mistress
(In this alternate scenario)
Sleeps in his bed,
Beside his other curved concubines,
Space and Time.
She projects herself, once more,
Endlessly into his future.

The dreams crash and glisten;
Presaging a love
More fantastic than science‑‑

The futures tighten around her
like his arms in the night.

Praise one, praise them all, send out your message to the Blue Z audience and the planet for a kinder world, for a sustainable future, get on your soap box about pollution, war, injustice, speak the change you want to see in the world, bring the rebirthing energy of spring to your desire for global kindness, compassion, partnership, kinship. Let us make a joyful noise and send our message into the ether and move the dream from hope to certainty with every word and action we take in the name of peace.
