“From the Margins of Notebooks” is a collection of poetry that I have written over the last five years. Sometime after the loss of my sister in 2008, I started writing just a little here and there when I was feeling thoughtful. Usually, in long skinny columns in the margins of all my notebooks. Many, many notebooks later – I am now sprucing up their online home, and giving some that were forgotten in those margins a place among their peers.
Some of these are first draft versions that have always just felt complete to me. Others are snippets I’ve written and haven’t been able to finish. Some started as snippets that stayed in my notebook until I went back and expanded on them. There are some (which are my favorites) that I am constantly drawn back to over and over again. The ones that change, grow, evolve. None of them are ever really done, though. They are all my little never-ending projects.
Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share my poems with you.
- I hope that you enjoy them. xo
