The Sunday Poem: Sylvia Ramos

I first met Sylvia at Word Weavers, a small group of poets who allowed newbies in now and then.  Like the others in the group, Sylvia is devoted to editing and crafting original drafts, resulting in poems that deliver.  I hope she publishes a collection soon as she would add to the body of work about…

The Sunday Poem: John Roche

I remember the Fixed and Free some several summers ago, I was a feature but there was this special poet in town and would I mind so very much giving him my feature spot? asked Billy the amazing Cookie-Making Poet.  And I did not mind, being curious like a Goddess poet may sometimes be. And voilá—there was…

The Sunday Poem: Karin Bradberry

I met Karin years ago in the poetry scene, both of us English teachers who wrote poems.  Maybe the first time was at a workshop and poetry picnic, the Sunflower Festival at Mountainaire in and about the old Shafer Hotel.  Eventually, Karin and I took over the Rag after Carol Lewis had so…

The Sunday Poem: Mary Dudley

Mary Dudley has a contagious enthusiasm welcome in times like these. Her focus on flowers, gardens, family and community is a light on a grey day. I see her smiling face every time I shop at the Growers Market and at any poetry venue that opens its doors and welcomes us.  Enjoy a little time in Mary's garden…

The Sunday Poem: Susan Paquet

I first met Susan Paquet at Duke City DimeStories, a prose writing open mic at the Source in ABQ  founded by Jennifer Simpson. Susan’s DimeStory  character, Aunt Betty, is an everywoman, a woman who wants to squeeze life for all it’s worth.  That cowboy parked out behind the old folks’ home, ready for…

The Sunday Poem: Georgia Santa Maria

Years ago, I walked into my living room where poets were gathering for a gala in my yard, and there was this rusty-redheaded woman adjusting her shawl.  I had a wave of stranger danger until we were all outside, rows of lawn chairs as if for a wedding. When Georgia took the mike, I fell in love with…
