I began writing poetry after a car accident left me with double vision – making reading and writing difficult. With just a few words, poems are rich in ideas and imagery.
Writing poetry is my great joy and a humbling challenge. I write in a journal and participate in two writing groups – do writing exercises and play with the basic verbs of the English language. But a poem comes when it comes – a gift which I can then fine tune.
