For all of you not lucky enough to have a sister, who didn’t envy those did? I sure did! As much as I loved having a brother, I couldn’t help but envy my two dearest childhood pals, who more or less adopted me as their own sister and let me tag along on their madcap adventures. I penned today’s poem in honor of Deborah and Rebecca, who made every day seem like an endless summer.
A lake in the Caraway Mountains, the setting for “The McCuiston Girls.”
I’m honored to be one of 9 poets participating in the 30/30 project on behalf of Tupelo Press. To see my poem for today, scroll down in the alphabetical list to read “The McCuiston Girls.”

I also hope that my family and friends, fellow writers, and the subscribers of my blog believe in me, I’m hoping that you’ll read my work when you can, and consider supporting me with a small donation.
