Bloggers Photo

I'm a late babyboomer Canadian born in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, raised in Northern Ontario, now living in Ottawa, I'm finding out that oncoming golden years offer a very rich perspective on life. 

Please visit often my growing collection of poems and I hope you find many will resonate with you. I'd love to hear your comments.

I am a member of Haiku Canada and have had haiku published.

By the way, my avatar is an ink painting I created on rice paper years ago. The symbol means PLAY - something I have finally learn how to do in later years and poetry is definitely my favourite form of play.

P.S. My name is pronounced Lynn.

Thanks to everyone who entered my contest.

I was disappointed to N/A some REALLY GOOD poems.

- some were too long

- some had no obvious effort to connect to theme

- some had careless typos

- some may have interpreted my theme as “give me an example of”

Congrats to everyone whose muse was inspired by my contest whether or not they placed.

I went back and reread the directions. More details would have let us know you did NOT want an example. You are so KIND to read and comment positively on my poems on a regular basis. I thank you sincerely and hope you will continue to do so! I'm just saying that directions do not clearly state what you were looking for. I AM glad to see my name on the list. Janice
