featured poet ~ Becky Sain @beckysain {redux}

Becky Sain  {  @beckysain  }   holds a special place in my heart for a number of  reasons. she was the first person i ever talked to on twitter, the first friend i made on twitter, the first writer i ever met, she added me to her “cool girls” list and she sent me Mickey Mouse ears. through Becky, i was introduced to and began following writers, poets, photographers and artists which led directly to me writing, as well as making many new friends. i had never written anything before and tweeted my first haiku in January 2010. in her own right, Becky is one of ~ if not THE ~ most talented writers i know. on her blog, First Pages, she writes about her life, her family, life in general, families in general, poetry and short stories. her writing is always evocative ~ i am drawn in as though actually standing with her in her tales of  her life. her poetry touches a place deep inside of  me and moves me greatly. she doesn’t think she’s a “real” poet.  i know you’ll disagree.  her short fiction can be found HERE. be sure to take a look around while you’re at her blog. you’ll enjoy it. i promise.

What if it needed the light of others to glow?

Would you walk away…..Read More
