Each month we will profile one RWISA “RISING” WRITER!  Each RRW will have a specially created 1 + minute video clip, profiled and promoted here during their month.  Each RRW will also receive a special announcement during the RAVE WAVES “BUY THE BOOK” segment of their highlight month.

Please join us in the high-profile promotion of this rising star thru-out the literary stratosphere, by visiting their author page and author showcase and leaving your comments.  Don’t forget to share this page and all their other profile pages from the RWISA site, on each of your social media forums.





Introduction:  This piece is from my upcoming collection of Poetry.


I am a first kiss

I am the teenage puppy love, hand-hold, snuggle, coupled laughter

I am a ripple in the pond that two lovers look upon

I am the first date

I am a Father’s pride as he watches his son take his bride…at the altar, on their wedding day

I am the first of May

I am a newborn laid upon its’ Mother’s breast

I am the heartbeat buried in your chest

I am the hand clap and the cheer as parents watch their toddler take her first steps

I am the ‘awwww’ when she falls

I am the tear rolling down a mother’s cheek the first day of kindergarten

I am that same tear which appears at the mere mention of going away to college

I am the crinkle in the forehead upon learning of a child’s misdeed

I am the punishment, I am the lesson

I am a smile across the lips of parents as they watch their child walk across a graduation stage

I don’t age…

I can’t

I am the first wind of an autumn morn, blowing thru your hair

I can be found most everywhere

I am forever.

I am love.
