|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, and bring beautiful music into 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 sons. My husband and I own a small business with a team of 12 people. I am in the process of becoming a certified health coach and enjoy biking, yoga, Crossfit, hiking, reading, dinner with friends and family, and I am finally learning how to cook. :-)
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.
