Love Poem

Poetry Contest

My Dear Readers,

To honor the community who have supported my writing journey and my work I plan to have a poetry contest in September.  I will ask you to write one poem inspired by a piece from my #1 Amazon Best-Selling poetry collection Woman: Splendor and Sorrow and to list the name of the piece that inspired your submission. There will be prizes.  More info about the contest coming up in September.

MasticadoresUSA update

Thanks to Juan, MasticadoresUSA has now a new beautiful theme. There are several new posts on the site. For me MasticadoresUSA is a labor of love. It is a way of giving back to the WP community. Thank you to everyone who supports this site.

You can read the work of your fellow poets and follow the site here.

Love to everyone.
