Hello. I am new here and just walking around to imbibe the rarefied air. I am being fitted into a round peg for Key Difference and I needed the breather. Please feel free to comment on my poems. In fact, I would appreciate constructive criticism. This could be a mutual thing. Don't be surprised by the age - I am a reincarnation of a long line of writers (majority of whom are poets, some are cats) . Thank you.

Dear fellow aspiring poets, I joined this web site in early Nov.2013 and have 28 poems posted so far, many of these written in college (40 years ago) . A few of my longer and more recent poems took months to complete. The poem " I would be a fool..." was written during a dream. I was sitting at a desk composing a poem in my dream, I woke up and literally wrote it down from memory (It isn't very long) . I love it when a poem literally writes itself. It's like you're white hot and it just pours out. Check out " Driving Alone Through the Sand Hills of Nebraska" to get an idea of what I'm talking about. The heart of this poem was written on a road trip from SD to OK. You can't imagine how many times I stopped to jot down new ideas. It took several months to finish it however. Another more recent poem that also almost wrote itself is " The Ball Is In God's Court." Hope you like these poems which truly are " my only children" and which document both my life and my loves over the last fifty years. May your children bring you as much joy!

Hello all, I have recently published my first anthology. It is 'the poet from hell' and is on Amazon and Create Space ISBN -10: 1491031271.
Hers is a small sample from Walk along 'The Way':
City of antiquity, evolved by sword
From Muslim to Christian over ages;
Madrid – food, wine, museums,
A convent where nuns’ feet
Bared for a widowed princess;
Then rail to Sarria on Camino –
Way of St James the Great –
Final section of the pilgrim way
Over mountains edging Gaule and Espana;
Scallop shell the metaphor for ways
Of Camino to Santiago de Compostela.

Hi fellow poets, please feel free to check out and comment on my contributions here on this site or on my personal web-site, http://we-r-1.info/. My poetry is often of a spiritual but not religious nature and will, I believe, appeal to those seeking a deeper understanding of their spiritual essence. It would be great to hear from you! Cheers!

I really honestly don't care if anyone reads this message, but there is a good chance someone will and someone has.
In my poems I talk about excaping, which is what I and so many others want to do.
Some do it in really really bad poems about suicide and such,
while I on the other hand do so in poems of rebellion and running away.
I am just a girl, trying to get by in life with as little scars as nessicary.
I just do this to get it off my chest and somewhere else so I can forget it all.
This is me running away
