THE OWL LADY PRESENTS GUEST AUTHOR AND POET: Kay Kauffman

kay kauffmanAs a girl, Kay dreamed of being swept off her feet by her one true love. At the age of 24, it finally happened…and he’s never let her forget it. A mild-mannered secretary by day and a determined word-wrangler by night, she battles the twin evils of distraction and procrastination in order to write fantastical tales of wuv…twue wuv…with a few haiku thrown in for good measure.

*********************************************************************

I love poetry.

I love to read it, and I

Love to write it, too.

I love all kinds of

Poetry, from sonnets to

Ballads, but when it

Comes to writing my

Own, I prefer haiku to

Any other form.

Why?  Because it’s a

Challenge to condense one’s thoughts

Into seventeen

Syllables.  Try it

Sometime; as with anything,

It’s not as easy

As it looks, but that’s

Part of the allure, part of

What makes the writing

Fun.  Sure, there are times

When I’d love to just stick an

Extra syllable

In a line; ‘twould be

So much easier that way.

But working within

The form forces me

To think more deeply about

What I’m writing and

How I word things.  And

The more haiku I’ve written,

The easier I

Find them to write.  Heck,

I’ve even begun to think

In haiku.  If you

Don’t believe me, just

Look at this post – it’s one long,

Rambly haiku.

ASFAS-Ecover[1]The author of Tuesday Daydreams: A Journal in Verse and A Song for All Seasons: A Journal in Verse, Kay is currently hard at work on the first book in a fantasy trilogy. She resides in the midst of an Iowa corn field with her devoted husband and his mighty red pen; four crazy, cute kids; and an assortment of adorably small, furry animals.
A Song for All Seasons, you can find at Amazon, Amazon UK, Createspace, Smashwords, iBooks, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.

*********************************************************************

TD-Ecover[1]Tuesday Daydreams captures the life and imagination of the author in vivid detail, touching on joy and loss, life’s everyday hassles, and the many faces of Mother Nature.  A Song for All Seasons paints vivid pictures of the Iowa landscape in all its glory, in addition to intimate portraits of family life.  From frost-covered windowpanes and snowy vistas to rolling green fields and bright blue skies, each poem is a peek into a fading world of untamed beauty.
Tuesday Daydreams you can find at Amazon, Amazon UK, Createspace,                                             Smashwords, iBooks, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.
