Drawn from the pits and tossed from the light
a winged creature steadfast takes flight.
A pen-like sword with ten times the soul
the mighty muse comes forth to write the scroll.
Come all, come all the words are great!

Subject: Another newsletter - poetry
I've been away from Author's Den for quite some time-my computer's modem has gone out and I've never replaced it. Blah
Anyway, news from the carnival poet-I traveled with the carnival again the spring/summer of 2006 full time while also keeping a full time, regular job. It was rough. However, it inspired some great rhymes-as only that life can. My poem "The Text Message" was inspired by my many tired drives home after closing with the carnival and my boyfriend would keep me awake by calling me or sending me a text message. It's amazing how you can be wide awake one mile and the next...eye lids just too heavy for your head. Working those two jobs every day wore on me-but had to make money to afford mortgage and utilities-forget luxuries such as food.
I have written about the whole summer with the carnival. For those of you who may be curious about that life, you may check out my blog at myspace: www.myspace.com/carnivalpoet
It is a journal that I would write in at the end of each week after I had left the carnival would leave each town.
Be on the look out for some of my new poetry...I will start posting again shortly :o)
I'm also participating in NaNoWriMo. Check out www.nanowrimo.org-it is national novel writing month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. This year, I'm going to make that whole novel rhyme...I've only hit nearly 30,000 words in my attempt at NaNoWriMo 2004.
