I hope to give you many glimpses of distant lightning from Lucasville; lightning that reveals lives lived. In sharing my little prose-poems, I hope that the reader will begin to see a mosaic of life in the village of old Lucasville while filling in that mosaic with your own memories and recollections. The first poem that I share is one that talks of the 1860's and the Civil War, while my poetry tells of life in the last half of the twentieth century and on into the twenty-first. I would like to say a word about my poetry. I'm not even sure it is poetry. I think some of my "poems" can be called prose poems, but some may be distilled descriptions or little stories written in poetic form. Whatever they are, they are the way I deal with subjects that are important to me. I offer them to you and hope you find value in them.

About the Author

North Carolina author Linda Howard Scott, after a life-long love of writing and poetry, has at long last made the commitment of sharing her verse--and therefore her Lucasville roots, friendships, kinships, upbringing and joyful life--with us in this, her first volume of poetry.
