|About Me ||
Poetry captures a moment in time forever. It provides a poignant means to bring both the beauty and the ugliness of life to the surface. By writing on both these themes an artist exhibits a fullness about themselves and thus a realness to their work which readers can understand and connect.
Sites such as Creative-Poems are important because they allow the truth of Henry Van Dyke's words to shine as he said, "Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best." Creative-Poems opens up the doors for all of us to sing, thereby bring beautiful music in this world. Hopefully, in the process we'll increase our skill and application of literary techniques.
On a personal note, I am married and have three adult children. My husband and I own a small business in the screening printing, embroidery and promotional industry with a team of about 14 people. We joke about the fact that we work together and still like each other! At least on most days! :-)
It has been a pleasure to read the work of the writer's on Creative-Poems and to receive the kind and encouraging comments from you as well.
