My "Magical Childhood" Poems

This is just a small collection of poems I've written about pregnancy, motherhood, and my kids.

I've published nearly a hundred poems and am currently working on a book of poems chronicalling the ten years I dealt with miscarriages and then the pregnancies and births of my children. I also have some poems touring the U.S. in a play about domestic violence and am working on several other projects. I have so many things I'd like to get going.... I recently told a friend "I don't have too many irons in the fire anymore-- I'm in the fire and I've lost all my irons." Such is motherhood! And I wouldn't have it any other way. Projects will keep. How long do you think these kids will let me tickle their bellies and make mud pies?
