Poetry, expression of soul and spirit, provides a foundation for my life as a teacher, psychologist, and woman. The following poets (and so many more) inspire me in my work with students and clients. I hope you enjoy these poems; please feel free to send poems to add to the blog.
Please see the following links; the first four links are my other blogs; the fifth link is the professional organization to which I belong. The sixth link provides information about weekly poetry events.
