Indie Author/ Gypsy Dancer #amwriting #poetry

2006blackdressleg179 circa 2006. *I used to dance a lot more.  But then, I write a whole lot more now. It is a dance of words.  

I don’t do this for riches,

I earn pennies a day.

I do this for the joy,

so, please don’t look away.


I’ll still dance even

if you don’t look,

but, yes, I want

you to read this book.


A gypsy dancer keeps on moving,

We think she has no home.

An indie writer, keeps on trying,

With no agent, on her own.


I’ve finally got the nerve

to dance for a crowd,

I open my arms wide…

ready to sing aloud.


I do this because I must,

it’s like an itch I must scratch.

Sometimes I aim to please,

but sometimes that’s a miss.


Pleasing the masses?

Unlikely, but I’ll try…

Yet a smile on just one face

can help me get by.


No matter what they think,

I will still dance on.

And for my dance of words,

You’ll remember me when gone.

I am a writer who also teaches reading and writing, currently. In 2016, I self-published an e-book and its sequel, and I am learning the art of self-promotion. I published a full-length time travel novel as of 6/16/17 and its sequel in the summer of 2018. Life is a trip, and writing is the best escape for me!
