    Hi Sandra...just read your poem, 'Ghosts'. Wow...what well intwined words that hit so well to the target...
    'If I believed
    In the future more;
    Maybe I would believe
    In the past less.'

    Very well said...very...well said...

    Hi Sandra…
    “Three Words For A Lover’s Day”…I absolutely love this piece…it encompasses in just a few words that expresses an entire/complete thought…beautifully. I like very much how you keep the continuity flowing as if weaving your words like a seamstress…

    I thought “Cleansing Rain” was so delicately presented. Just like the title itself…gentle…but…well…how should I put this…like a single droplet that falls perfectly where it is meant to be…

    And Sandra…when I read “Morning Night” I actually saw the changes in colors and textures of the sky and earth and light. You captured this magnificently…

    I agree with Herbert 100 percent…you ARE a damned fine poet. I would hope that you would publish a book of poetry. If not yet, in the near future I would hope, your book will be…and I mean this from one who admires GOOD poetry…fantastic. I recently got published with my own book of poetry, “Point A to Point B (Well, Almost) ”. I would like to say I’ve got some pretty good stuff in it. But I MUST say…from the twelve, or so, pieces I have read, so far, of your stuff…Sandra…you’re very good. I will read on…and I will definitely let you know how good your stuff is…that is…if you still want my opinion…I will be reading your poetry in many poetry books to come…no doubt…

    Just me, Lare Austin

Best Poem of Sandra Osborne

Sonnet I: Abused Little Child

I will tell you now of a life of pain
An abused little child, thrown away. I’d
Explain all the hate, and laughter insane,
But you’d never believe a world would try,
To threaten my soul and straighten my curls
To make me love men, to make me so cold
While loving myself, one scared little girl,
While feeling so frail and feeling so old,
While feeling so wrong, while being a child,
While feeling insane, and not knowing why
While shaking from fear, while screaming wild
While wishing for death as he passes by.
And as a woman now, I feel like prey,
An ...

Sometimes I just close my eyes and pick a word right out
of the dictionary, like “Ordinary”, and start writing away.
Sometimes I see an old episode of “Gunsmoke
and I cry because Miss Kitty is dead.
Sometimes I see a beautiful sunset, a sparkling river,
an empty house, a stunning woman, an old episode of
“Grizzly Adams”, cause I really like those big guys.
Sometimes I think of God, or evil, or why we have both, or
a cigarette, or snow, or 911, or clouds, or cats, or dogs, or
