About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.

  1. Short and poignantly bittersweet. Lovely image; lovely imagery. <3

  2. What a beautiful image! It’s quite vivid with your “contours of a broken heart.” The picture has a lot of texture, like an oil painting…I can almost feel the wind there… And I got to learn about “Tanka” poetry and glittery text too! Thanks 🙂

    • I took the picture this summer. It is right out back off our patio. We call it the “horse hole.” The neighbor horses stick their heads over and beg for carrots. The fog gets really thick here in Pensacola. Glad you liked it.

  3. I love the image “contours of a broken heart”.

  4. Lovely poem 😀

  5. very wonderful shapes!

  6. I enjoyed your unique take on this prompt, and loved the imagery.

  7. Oh I love this, it gave me goosebumps reading it. 🙂

  8. So that’s Tanka? Been wondering about that…

  9. Very nice shapes! I noticed the image and text overlay were both flashing alternately in the email post on Google. At least, I thought it was part of the “shape” theme, but then I see that doesn’t do this here in WordPress Reader (just a Gmail quirk, I guess).
