Have You "Freed Your Inner Book" Yet?
What You Need to Know About Me:
My name is Patricia Neely-Dorsey. I am from Tupelo, MS. I am a graduate of Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts and a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I have just recently published my first book of poetry entitled "Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia: a life in poems" It is a true celebration of the south and things southern. There are so many negative connotations associated with Mississippi and the south in general. I want to show a flip side of the coin. There is much to love about this much maligned and misunderstood part of our country. In my book, using childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I attempt to give a positive glimpse into the southern way of life.

Southern Life

If you want a glimpse of Southern life,

come close and walk with me;

You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,

magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees,

caterpillars on the step,

wooden porches cleanly swept;

watermelons on the vine,

strong majestic Georgia pines;

rocking chairs and front yard swings,

junebugs flying on a string;

turnip greens and hot cornbread,

coleslaw and… Continue

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
