What do you write about?

What ever pops into my head: nature, human condition, personal growth, mental illness, family, politics, current events

What do you enjoy reading?

My favorite two poets are Pablo Neruda and Mary Oliver. Currently I'm reading Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry.

What do you think is important about poetry?

Being able to write about an experience, thought, event using exacting language, in a rhythmic manner that captures the point yet leaves enough room for the reader to interpret it based on their own experiences, ideas and belief system.


I love poetry. I was recently thinking how great it would be to find a poetry group. I RSVP'd for an event with a different meetup group and this was listed as a group some one belonged to. Kismet.
