Windfalls is a collection of all the poems written by Hazel S. Muller from 1995 to 10/2007. She has gathered all of her poetry together to provide a record of her work up to this time whether good, better, or best. Like all poetry it provides an insight, a glimpse, into the mind and feelings of the author. The first poem offered, Windfalls, which won First Prize in The Marcella Siegel Memorial Contest in A Galaxy of Verse, (2002 Fall-Winter) sets the stage for all that comes after, in alphabetical order. The letters of the alphabet were designed and painted by the author. It is sincerely hoped you will find something to remember out of all these words.
My Adventures In Art has taken me through making stained glass windows and lamps in Arizona, to oil painting and teaching oil painting in Oregon, California, and Nevada, to silk painting in New Mexico and now calligraphy and bookmaking in Oregon. I am also a published poet and writer, have served on the board of the Oregon State Poetry Association, was voted member of the year 2005 by Capital Calligraphers in Salem, Oregon, now I teach paper arts at San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico and serve on the board of Three Rivers Women's Collective. I create because it keeps me sane; I share because it makes me happy. Hazel S. Muller
