September 1 was the publication day for the first serious poem I ever wrote. I was on the family farm in Missouri for vacation in 2012. A strange event happened while I was relaxing in a lounge chair. “The Rocking Chair” (about my mother) will appear in the anthology The Light Within–A Collection of Peace and Prose published by Spiritual Writers Network. A free digital version is available on Amazon for Kindle Unlimited through Monday, Sept. 5. If you are ever interested in an author signed copy, please contact me.
