Poetry – Katrina Van Tassel

only child
blooming lass
plump and ripe

(A little poem inspired by the character from Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”)

Hi! I am an artist, author, and blogger who also happens to have Asperger’s Syndrome. I have won several awards and honors for my writings and artwork. I suffer from a few severe mental illness and chronic pain conditions (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Ehlers Danlos, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc.), which greatly affects my life and makes me want to advocate for others going through similar things. Other interests of mine include reading, writing, drawing, watching cartoons and movies, collecting toys, hanging out with my family, and annoying my 3 cats.

  1. I need to watch that. I love this poem and I love the word coquetry. Reminds me of like, Marilyn Monroe.
    I also thought, reading this, that it would be interesting seeing it in French, because they use the same word for “woman” and “wife” as well as “girl” and “daughter”
