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.

If you are looking for extra poetry to read here is is a page of links to online poetry magazines.

(Unable to add it as a link so copy and paste to your address bar)


I have also found a couple of free  poetry apps,  for iPad and iPhone. Probably there are similar ones for Android and computers. Poetreat, which gives a running list of rhyming words for the rhyme scheme you put in and Word Mover, which has a list of words that you can move around with your finger. I think this will be more useful when I choose my own word list to use. There is also an app called a acrostic poems, which I haven't tried yet.
