Bio
Once upon a time this writer was a reporter/photographer and columnist for a large weekly newspaper in New York City, worked at the Center for Publishing at N.Y.U., worked at Kirkus for one whirlwind semester and eventually was an editor at Scholastic. After two very eventful years on cable television in New York City, this writer was voted off the island. Today this writer is a student and soon-to-be published author (all fingers and toes are crossed) living in reduced circumstances. She is ever hopeful and even though her stomach may rumble from time to time, she is usually somewhat reasonably well fed. Most importantly this writer is a recovering or former New Yorker, (recovering seems more apt), who is quite happily transplanted elsewhere. She blooms where she is planted. ************************ You can contact me at diaryofahopefulstarvingstudent@ gmail.com

Comforter

Rate: 2 Flag

Noses pressed up against the cold glass
Washing the window with each breath
All that was clear becomes opaque
Fingers trace lines in the steam
Then all five sway to erase the film
Sending tiny jolts through your fingertips
As you connect with the frost
While snowflakes fall one by one
************************
You stand watch together
When things disappear before your eyes
The first rung of the fence post
Then the drive is gone
Leaving only the top of the post box
As if it were a lumpy pillow
Upon white blankets
A comforter for a wintry night
