random poetry

Welcome, Spring, with your sassy green clothes;
the dandelion fluff that dances on the breeze
and tickles my nose.

In beams brighter sunshine, which warms my face;
coaxing the flora and fauna out of hiding,
to take root and grow free in wide-open space.

Welcome, Spring, with your fast-rushing streams,
rinsing away the Winter from our hills and valleys;
providing sustenance for the trees.

Onward marches Spring, slowly toward Summer;
away from short days and cold nights
spent dreaming of vernal slumber.

Welcome, Spring, the stuff of legends;
long-awaited, short-lived rebirth of nature;
always fleeting, yet always to return again.

It's here! It's here!

I've been posting some giveaway teasers on my Facebook page alluding to the ultimate fan giveaway that will kick off today, and guess what? The time has come to reveal the details!

I have an amazing giveaway for one lucky winner, who will be announced on May 1.
The prize package consists of:
1 signed copy of Supermarket
1 signed copy of Hooking Up
1 signed coy of Decisions
1 signed copy of The Storm Within
1 signed copy of Six Weeks

All nestled inside an adorable "I heart books by Jessica L. Degarmo" totebag!

This is a $75 value, and it can be yours...for free!!!!

Here's what you have to do to enter:

1) Like my Facebook author page at

2) Follow my blog and leave a comment and tell me why you want to win. Extra points if you have something nice to say :)

3) Follow me on Twitter and tweet something to me about the contest. Extra points if you tweet about this contest to your followers!

And that's it! I'm going to (gulp) open this up worldwide, so one lucky winner, anywhere in the world, will now be eligible to be the ultimate fan and get the prize package.

Good luck to each and every one of you. Let's make this fun, shall we?

And by the way, I'm toying with the idea of doing some recorded readings and discussions about some of my books. Which one would you like to see a reading of, and why? Now's your chance to ask me those questions you've always wanted to ask. Have fun and be creative!
