I like the "mystery in the air." You captured something intimate in this secret. 
The Secret Hot breath at my ear tickling tiny minuscule hairs leaning in to catch the words mystery in the air. A nervous giggle here a pregnant silence there. Whether it be kept or lost another secret shared. ...

They call a person a heart-throb for a reason! You definitely get the physiology of a great kiss.

Your last stanza is wonderful. And I really appreciated this bit:
whose branches lift
the snow in praise.
Snowstorm - Maurice de Vlaminck There is harsh biting winter  with winds that cut  your cheeks, water your eyes blurring your vision. A winter that numbs your toes till you think  they have fallen off. A wi...

Our First Apartment
Our First Apartment 700-square feet of bliss and cockroaches. We saw two in the tub The size of guinea pigs I marveled and cowered. You fed them to the turtles, Until we released our pets at the Bronx Zoo. The heat cranked Incessantly in winter, So we opene...

Sorry. I'm a little late. Happy Blitz Day! I see this is a book review site. Took me a few scrolls to figure out which was the Blitz one. Lucky author on this post. 
The name says it all! Yes, they are rescued – literally and by love. The title is so apt, the characters are so apt, the story is so apt, the conflict, the setting of Ladakh every damn thing about the book begs you to keep re...

Story
Tagline
"I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all." - James Baldwin
Introduction

I have several short pieces published in anthologies and journals, such as Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Halcyon magazine, 100 Stories for Queensland, 100 RPM, Fangtales, and From Stage Door Shadows. While my published works are for adults, I primarily write for children, and I'm active in the New England chapter of SCBWI (Society for Book Writers and Illustrators). 

I live in Arlington, Massachusetts with my husband, two children, a dog-like cat, and a cat-like dog. For my day job, I work as an aide in a public school, which gives me ample opportunity to observe teens and tweens in their natural habitat.
