Who's Your Favorite MISSISSIPPI POET??? I hope it's ME!!!

TODAY is World Poetry Day !

World Poetry Day was declared by UNESCO in 1999. 
The purpose of the day is to promote the reading, writing, 
publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world.

 My first book of poetry: Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia- A Life In Poems *Link to book on*
Published  February, 2008 
My second book of poetry:
My Magnolia Memories and Musings -In Poems
*Link to book on*
Published  February 2012

I call both books a
"celebration of the south and things southern". 
 Using childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I attempt to give a positive glimpse into the southern way of life. There are so many negative connotations associated with
Mississippi and the south in general. 
I want to show a flip side of the coin.
There is much to love about this maligned and misunderstood part of our country.
I would really love for you to get to KNOW Mississippi 
(and the south) in a different light.
