Kathy Stemke My poem, "An Empty Stage" has been nominated by the Preditors and Editors Poll. Please take a minute to read it, then follow the link if you want to vote for me.


Coiled torso frozen on an empty stage,

a living sculpture trapped and placed

with no gown of tulle to hide her age

but with weeping knees below her waist.

Framed in light her insides groan

with pent up passion poised for release,

she now waits long and alone

for rhythm to carry her into peace.

But I remember her unencumbered

prance, so light for one who was held down

by unfulfilled dreams remembered,

floating above her tattered gown.

Kathy Stemke 2008

Cathy Bryant Hi Kathy! Thanks for accepting my friend invite! It looks like we share more than just the same way. I noticed from your bio that we enjoy many of the same activities. (Congrats on publishing your first PB!) The virtual book tour sounds interesting. I'm eager to learn more. I'm doing a series of author interviews this month on my blog. If you're interested you can check it out at www.wordvessel.blogspot.com.
Have a blessed weekend!
