Lime and Tequila with a Splash of Pineapple Biography

Hello, I desire to relate a few kernels about myself and share you with some thoughts on my approach to poetry. Okay, I hate writing this stuff about myself. I'll come back to it! So, I'll give you my favorite poem for now. It's called Self-Pity by DH Lawrence. And what's sad is I discovered this poem from a $1 Blockbuster Demi Moore video rental (perhaps, the only good thing about that particular movie) . I'm very much new to poetry. I wrote my first 'real' poem in November 2007. And I'm experimenting with different forms, etc. Some poems, like Crazy Days, are very autobiographical, while others like 'Midnight Oil Blues', even though in the first person, address issues that trouble me or have gotten under my skin in some way. And finally, some poems are those dreaded diary entries. You won't be moved poetically, you'll just share in bits and pieces of my life, be it a traffic stop, a headache, or simply frazzled nerves at an approaching part. I deeply appreciate anyone who takes the time to read my works. And over time, I plan to read as many of other people's poems as I can. If you see a line or an error in one of my poems, or just want to ask about its inspiration or suggest a change, shoot me an email. I enjoy a chance to ramble on about almost anything during my otherwise mad days of being a stay at home mom. On an unrelated note, I'm ridiculously happy these days in my second marriage. It's been three years now and I think I've fallen deeper in love with my husband every day of each of those three years. I know it must be mad infatuation, because love can't feel so good. Peace and harmony, Lime & Tequila)

This lady (and she is) knocks my socks off. Her poetry is always contemplative and intelligent. She takes the reader exactly where she wants him or her to go. Reciprocally, she understands - really understands - what others write. And to boot, never an error of spelling or grammar (my bug-bear) . I have rarely been so impressed. t x

Beautifully understated and thus, sublime.

Dear Lime, Have just voted 10 for your Escalator Rides! May I 'use' it in class with my English learners? It´s so visual and interesting that it simply exists and moves by itself! My Admiration, Sílvia from Brasil

How refreshing it is to meet a young poet who uses discipline in her work. I applaud your exploration of metered forms. Keep writing and I will keep reading.

L&T is one sassy lady that I am drawn to and would love to poetry jam with often in person if spatial horizons did not dictate distances.
