If you want to keep something close to you,

you put it in your pocket.

Some pockets are deep; some pockets are shallow.

These poems are of the same scope and landscape.

Each one holds a small treasure.

Manifest West is Western Press Books’ literary anthology series. The press, affiliated with Western State Colorado University, produces one anthology annually and focuses on Western regional writing. In Women of the West, this year’s collection of poems, short stories, and creative nonfiction, twenty-five writers and poets present a broad understanding of the Western woman, sometimes defying and sometimes reinforcing expectations and stereotypes. My poem, ““Homesteading in Paradise,” is on page 73. This is the second year my poetry has been selected for publication in the Manifest West series.

Every day has a poem. I watch, I listen, I think, I pray. When I hear a poem, I write it down. Sometimes I find a picture that illustrates the day. I am always surprised. I hope you will be, too.

A writer of many genres, Sally Clark loves living in a small town with her husband where their grown children and five grandchildren all live within walking distance. Crowded with relationships, busy with activities, Sally takes refuge on the balcony of their old Victorian house - the perfect place to pen her thoughts.
