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.


Thinking of You ALL


Blog Posted:9/16/2013 2:25:00 AM
Hello my poet friends...I haven't been coming onto Poetry Soup much at all lately.
I have been spending time with friends and doing my papercrafts but I do hope to get back to posting soo as I miss being involved here. 
I wrote a blog message a while ago and hit the wrong button and lost it all.
Just want you to know I have missed you all and will catch up soon with reading.

I am off to Ireland soon for  a couple of weeks and promise to judge my 'Let's Be Open Contest' when I get back.....
I am thinking of my next competition and I think it will involve mermaids and the prize will be a Mermaid Collage by me.  So start thinking of a story about a mermaid.

Thanks to all who have left comments on my poems.  My email comes into Yahoo and it has gone wahoo of late, and I can't make head nor tail of it.
I will have more time soon to read and post and catch up.
Take care and be well and happy,
SuZ

    Thanks, Tim: It is nice to be missed. Makes the homecoming sweeter. Thanks for the kind words on my poems. Without good readers like you my poems sit in space. Thanks for discovering them. Someday you will make it to Ireland...I pray. SuZ
