I'm fresh out of stories and poems to post. As soon as you send me something wonderful, the posts of Writing In A Woman's Voice will resume. The address to send to is writinginawomansvoice@gmail.com.

In the meanwhile I'll leave you with one of my poems that's been on my mind a lot lately.


The Dragon's Tale


Yes, I took the princess away.
She's hidden up in the mountains.
She's hidden from your strange
world of corsets and obedience
among the yellow flowers.
She's hidden from your male
fantasies among my cousins,
the lithe lizards. She's hidden
from your benevolent contempt
in the moss of morning dew.
You thought I was going to eat her?
