At Home this May


The sun shines today after a week of pouring rain. Violets begin to bloom in the grass, and I’ve planted the first rows of lettuce and spinach. In the past couple of days, I’ve been fortunate to have poetry accepted at several places.


-The Lake Poetry, is online now.

New England Memories, will be online upcoming this month.

-Pensive: A Global Journal of Spirituality and the Arts, is a new  forthcoming journal from Northeastern University in Boston.

To share my good fortune, for the next day or two my latest chapbook is on special sale on, so be quick to visit. It’s a lovely gift for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, especially if your family has crossed the seas to live in another country.  It’s a tale, in poetry, of the journey from immigration to assimilation. If this link doesn’t work for you, just plug the name of the book into the search engine at

May all beings be Safe,

May all beings be healthy,

May all beings have ease.


Stay healthy, all.

    Dear Elaine, Congratulations on having your work accepted at different sites. I have a copy of your books. I bought The Heart is a Nursery for Hope and Look Behind You a few months ago through Amazon. I thoroughly enjoy your poems. Glad that the sun is back out. It promises to be a sunny weekend here in Asheville. Peace to you….take care Love Luci
