I  am a writer.  My poetry is sad, I write death, but I can write happy if I want to. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dancing. I collect books, vintage clothes and  jewelry.   I adore the old building where I live with Snuggles Kitty. The avatar statue you see on my poems honors my elderly cat Smudges who died at 20 years. She loved to lay in the shade of the garden. 

Ten poems that define me as a poet . . . (from thousands)

1. The Dream Lingers https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/the_dream_lingers_408612 This poem was written after a near death experience, it stills haunts me, I could hear my mother calling me.

2. Safe In My Heart Forever https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/safe_in_my_heart_forever_549494 My mother was my anchor, the wings beneath my feet and my best friend, I miss her so very much.

3. Tattered Pages https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/tattered_pages_688344 At the end of the poem, a baby born, died and I was told he was adopted, my parents lied.

4. Dad's Workshop https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/dads_workshop_714811 I wrote this poem in 1997 but only posted it when I was posting on poetrysoup- it is about Dad.

5. Beautiful Scars https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/beautiful_scars_735565 This poem gives you just a small glimpse of the pain and grief I carry with me every single day.

6. And That Comes From Within https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/and_that_comes_from_within_1127173 My health is not that good, never has been and never will be, and no money will change my outcome.

7. in my green dream https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/in_my_green_dream_762889 I love this poem, dreamy and spiritual, I am all about nature in this one, come on a green journey.

8. A Lost Feather https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/a_lost_feather_783977 This poem is very meaningful to me, it speaks of my Ojibwe roots and of my ancestors in the sky.

9. "Kindness is the Key" https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/kindness_is_the_key_848785 When awful things happen to us in life it is easy to become mean and resentful but kind is better.

10. I Write Fragments https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/i_write_fragments_1243058 This poem sums up my journey in writing, fragments, snippets that drip, drip from my pen and mostly at night

''Q'' Contest, NEW ONLY Finalized

Blog Posted:10/4/2021 7:52:00 PM

Thank you to all who entered my contest.  Really great poems received to create a wonderful collection of poems.  Congratulations to the winners.  Just to remind you I do not select the order of winners in each group ie 1st, 2nd, 3rd, that is somehow done by PS. I will be visiting your poems soon.

Reason for NA-

Used all the required words instead of picking one to write about

If you have any questions about your placement/ or non placement contact me by private soup mail only.

Dear Constance, thank you so much for yet another wonderful contest...I struggled a bit as to what to write... as I chose "Quandary" to write... but somehow managed to pen a scene of an imaginative story...with which I was not satisfied, to be frank, as I began to write it...but was inspired to continue it, and then completed it. Saw the new contest too... "R".... with many themes, which am sure will get filled SO fast... Congrats to all winners... Hugs... ~ Ani
