The mountains of southwest New Mexico have been Dawn’s home for over 40 years. She delights in capturing the beauty of nature with her poetry. Has published two books so far: Flights of Fancy: Volume 1 and Flower Escapes (Book 1).
Her latest project has been a nature calendar for 2013. The title of it is: Nature through Poetry 2013. It is available here at Lulu.
Current plans are for a new book entitled Poetry to Ponder. This should be out sometime in 2013. It will have her latest poetic creations.
Here is one to celebrate autumn:
Soft Days of Autumn
Soft days of autumn
Slowly slip upon us
Like a small kitten seeking a scratch.
Caress the day
Like a cozy blanket in a lap.
Sun slides south
Searching for a resting pose
Like a peaceful yoga master relaxing.
Plants pause to sigh
Pondering with pride their work
Like a landscape painter a finished canvas.
Soon, silent, sailing leaves
Slip gracefully towards earth
Like a spent firework fading away.
