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:

Poetry for Thought.

Lately I have been having trouble when I attempt to leave a comment on other poet's poems.
After I fill in the Capcha Code and hit validate...instead of posting my comment it goes to a System Error 500 Page.  After a few tries of recycling the Capcha Code, I try it in the reply box from a previous comment and if that fails I send a Soupmail.
Has anyone else been having this problem????
 It is already so time consuming doing the Capcha Codes all the almost discourages communication due to time constraints...

    No I haven't luv. Try contacting PoetrySoup to fix your problem. Sounds frustrating what you're going through. Love, Gail

    I can't enter contests. The PS techs told me to update my browser... My computer won't take any more updates... They did nothing else to fix it... I'm borrowing my son's computer to enter contests... This is the first and last time I become a premium member if they won't fix the problem... Everything else works for me... Their programing is constantly being upgraded... It causes occasional problems... that they usually fix... This time it was excuses... Bummer... I use IE.

    Internet Explorer is horrible but Firefox does very well. You might consider switching.

    Gosh, that is a new one to ME, Suz. I am so sorry this has to happen to you. Just keep bugging them. Oh by the way, do you use Internet Explorer. I had all kinds of problems until I changed to googlechrome. Soup does not do well with IE. could it be your problem?
