I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I had six nuzzling buddies as a child morphing into a teen …. I loved them with all my heart. I knew they loved me too. Ah, life on the farm … it was summers for me. I love your poem.

    I grew up on a farm, and I could milk a cow, but I swear I never nuzzled one! I think I must have missed something!!

    I’m all for muzzling buddies. I never had one of the farm animals as one, but several dogs liked to muzzle. Adi, my Beagle dog, was last. We were buddies, a nice therapy animal team also.

    I know I’d be the girl who made friends with the cow. Lovely piece!
