I have so many things to be thankful for this year. I am thankful for my family’s tolerance of my absence when I’m writing. For their making of dinners, washing of clothes, and cleaning of the house. I am thankful for my publishers at Decadent Publishing, Heather Bennett and Lisa Omstead, for signing me on and being wonderful women to work with. I am thankful for my editors who bring out the best in me and my writing. And I’m thankful for my DP friends who are fun-loving, crazy folk!
But this post is now turning to YOU! I am so very thankful to have such an amazing group of fans and friends of the Brethren! I count my blessings everyday that you are in my life. So, to show my gratitude, I am giving you these poems. You can download them, print them, whatever you’d like.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

In dreams you come to me, an enigma of a man
With the whispered promise
Of feathered, teasing kisses
To caress my body
Rapturously and bold
In dreams, my cloistered senses open for you
With my own whispered promise
To submit to all of your desires, and to my own
To take from you, that which you have to offer
Until we are sated
Leaving me bereft at the break of day
I’ve grown addicted to your presence
Distracted with breathless anticipation
I curse the dawn, and bless the twilight
Ushering you back into existence
Back into my world, and my arms once again
I lay me down, and shut my eyes
Tightly, oh so tightly
Forcing my dreams to hasten their return
But oh, how foolish of me
Dreams cannot be rushed
They drift in when they are ready
And you, my dream lover, will sail into my harbor
As destiny permits
Let destiny choose this night
To be the one to last an eternity
With you and me bound by love’s immortality
