Poetry poured out of me from the moment I could hold a pencil.
My greatest influence was Shel Silverstein. I found his cadenced rhymes and his playful witty tales spun in song irresistible. He also said something. And he dared to say more. He trusted us to handle it.
I am the kind of poet who shreds her soul in verse. I love rhyme. I love to see the positive in even the bleakest of situations.
I started a poetry blog on Instagram in July of 2016. In two years it has reached over 9,500 followers. Being able to share in others creativity is a blessing beyond words.
I will be sharing that poetry here – please check them out under the blog and poems category on the sidebar. You can also see where it all began at my poetry blog on Instagram @livingmywritelife. Please feel free to visit me there!
