I was thrilled to learn that one of my poems, "Keepsake," was selected by Maria Shriver and the editors of O Magazine to be featured on Oprah's website.

What an incredible poem. No wonder it was selected as the very first poem on Oprah's website out of 1000s. I love that:

It is always raining
in the hours before the sun,
when leaves boil on blacktop
and cats bolt across the road
like phantom runners.

It is so mystical, so beautiful.
