Writer’s Block – Author Anne D. Salyer


Such distance

Between heart and tongue.

Touch intention

And it disappears.

Thoughts that reside

Within hollow walls

Have no bones to hold them,

Only wishful thinking that

Twists them into the shapes

Of straw animals.

Blown away upon the wind

They become dancing reflections

Of what could have been.

Excerpt from the book “A Treasures of Seashells”


Anne D. Salyer

I was born and grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. Eventually I escaped to Kansas where I met the love of my life with whom I’ve been with for 25 years. We currently reside in Overland Park with three cats, my neglected poetic children, and this raccoon puppet. All in all, it is a good life!
