I’ve been called an emerging writer.
I wondered if I had been in a cocoon
for a long time and suddenly emerged.
I was wrapped up in my own little world
and all of a sudden I arrived.
All of these years I had been secretly watching
through a peephole and observing everything.
When I stepped out onto the stage into
the limelight, the applause was deafening.
I spread my wings, this little butterfly
was ready to fly.
Mary Bone about Mary Bone
I have been writing since the age of twelve and have had two books of poetry published. My poems have appeared in journals, magazines, newspapers and online blogs. The most recent poetry acceptances are posted at Poetry Pacific, Literary Yard, Afflatus Magazine and my poem, ”Other Warriors” will appear in the July/August issue of Oklahoma Today Magazine. I also like to draw and paint in my spare time.
