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.

    Thanks for recognition of my little spider story. This is true. It really happened. The spider's body was about the size of a quarter and I had no idea if it was a danger or not. Joyce

    Thanks for your note ,Joyce I agree ...always best to err on the side of caution with spiders. Fun to watch from a safe distance, SuZ
