I feel silly.  This is such a simple little poem to have received all of the nice comments and congrats, but you wanted to see it.  It is on the PostScripts page and they want very short submissions.

Am I Losing It?

Each day I'm growing shorter
And I wasn't ever tall.
Perhaps instead of dying
I'll just shrink to none at all.

So if you find me missing,
I'm not anywhere about;
Don't think I have deleted,
I've just shorted myself out.

Oftentimes succinctly is the best way to relate our thoughts... This is a wonderful verse, Joyce - and I'm very happy for you...

Joyce, this is a deightful 'short' poem and I just love it. I went searching for the magazine and couldn't find it.  
So, I'll continue till I locate it. In the meantime, thank you so much for sharing this with us and congratulation again!!

Hugs, Marti

That says a long story right there, and as usual you hit the target dead center.  Any thing you get published is a HUGE achievement, so give yourself a pat on the back.  Your book will remain with the others here that have been published, in pride.
