Excitement!

When I got home this afternoon, I found a delightful surprise waiting for me: a certificate of recognition from "The Storyteller". My poem, Luna, which appeared in the Spring 2011 issue of "The Storyteller", won third place in the magazine's People's Choice Awards for poetry. Here's the poem, in case you are interested

Luna

Tonight
I want to devour the moon
in one gulp,
let the liquid luminescence
seep through my pores,
soak up the silver strength
and seamless beauty
that is she, the moon,
and me.
