I have been a member of Poetry soup since 2011.
Though my forte is fiction, verse has always appealed to me. There is nothing like a play of words to rattle the ordinary, to tickle away the dust of stagnation. My favourite form is the contemporary sonnet, but I also enjoy free verse. Also, I love the zen experience of haiku, its seizure of a moment, how it can hold a universe in so few syllables. And I admit to a fondness for the Rondeau.
My life is simple, but busy. I’m a writer and stay at home mother. Days are full.
Currently, I am working on a novel or ... ha ha... should I really say that the novel is working on me? Characters! They have a way of turning a world upside down.
There are some amazing poets on the soup. I am blessed to call many my friends ~~ Cyndi
