Euterpe


Within her heart the music beats

And drumming in her ears

It dances down her moving arms

Caresses her flying fingers.

It draws the bow and frets the neck

And grips the body tight.

She laughs when all around her say

She feels so much more

She loves the music, gives it life

As she plays it for their souls.

She laughs knowing full well

The music plays her.

Suzana Wylie began writing as soon as she discovered which end of the pencil to lick. Her writing is eclectic, ranging from sonnets to free verse, essays to science fiction, shorts to sagas. She loves exploring the dynamics of male-to-male relationships and while her bent is for the paranormal/supernatural, she enjoys a good cowboy story and mysteries of all sorts. Suzana has no fear of any topic and though she does not care for confrontation, does not shy from controversial topics. Breaking writing rules isn’t out of the question. If the story calls for it, she’ll kill off a main character. While she does believe in happy endings, that doesn’t always mean happily ever after, even in fiction. Suzana is quite surprised to find she lives in the conservative Deep South, and dreams often of snow and liberal communities. She is a vocal advocate for LGBTQ rights.
