and her lively children's poem, Barefoot Time!

Sun shone like butterscotch. Foam frothed the beach.
We splashed in waves, squishing prints with our feet.

"School was out. The last bell chimed.
Off sailed our shoes - barefoot time!"

Griggs Anthology: Where is Joey Garcia?

From Maureen's award winning essay, Evensong:

"The night seems infused with magic. A breeze sighs in the sycamore tree, and I sigh. What is it about a summer evening that makes life seen easier, this earth a kinder place. Is it only the time we take to pause, to yield up the hard, blue edges of the day, and savor the hush of night? Or is there something in this twilight spell, this merging of day and night, light and darkness, that reaches into our very souls, connecting us to something greater?"
