Suzanne is a Retired Registered Nurse certified in Med/Surg. She began writing poetry as a result from meditation during stress relief classes. Since retiring she has participated in poetry groups both in the Community and on-line. She is originally from Australia but has lived in the Hawaiian Islands for most of her adult life. Her poetry is a mixture from both places as she has spent time living between both Australia and Hawaii. In her writing she has explored many forms but finds ease of expression mostly in free verse.

 Her poems are included in an Anthology "A Bridge to ALL Nations."with other poets from  Connie's site:

Contest Results - Synathroesmic Cat Poetry
Blog Posted:5/13/2013 7:44:00 PM

 

Hello Poets:

I finished judging the  Synathroesmic Cat Poetry Contest today.

There were a number of poems that didn't fit the criteria of Couplets
so were eliminated. If you think I have N/A'd your poem unfairly please
SoupMail me.  I had a bit of trouble when I was adding placements in  that when I checked back some had N/A next to them that I know I hadn't touched N/A -so I had to re-do them.  Any way I have finalized it now so hope you are happy with the winning poems and, please, when you can, go and read these delightful verses and congratulate the winners. 
It is quite a process to run a contest and I thoroughly enjoyed it however, I will be taking a break before I post another competition.

    Thank you for my placement among these delightful poems. I am going to sit down and read each and every one as soon as I have the time. My electricity was off since before my dinner time last night caused by sudden, short, surprising blast of wind, lasting short minutes, but causing hours of fretting. I am just starting to read them. Love, Joyce
