I am known as the rambling cowgirl
out here on the rustic trails.
The smell of supper cooking wafts
through the canyon as I make my way back
to my campsite and the chuck wagon.
My appetite gets the best of me
and I eat two bowls of red beans
that had small pieces of smoked bacon
The stars twinkle so bright as I roll my
saddle blanket into a pillow.
My horse, Sugarfoot, snorts as coyotes start to howl
in the distance.
Tomorrow will be another day
on the open range, in the life of
this rambling cowgirl.

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.
