Suzanne is a Retired Registered Nurse certified in Med/Surg. She began writing poetry  in 1998. Since retiring she has participated in poetry groups both in the Community and on-line. She is originally from Australia, has lived in the Hawaiian Islands for most of her adult life and now lives on the mainland US.  Her poetry is a mixture from all these  places.   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. One of the greatest joys in her life was to be contacted by Carol Mays, a fellow Souper, to publish an Anthology together, titled, " Poems of Nature, Enchantment and Mystery, available in Paperback and Kindle on Amazon. Here is a link.

https://www.amazon.com/Poems-Nature-Enchantment-Mystery-Carol/dp/B086MN2K6X

Suzanne has three poems included in the PS It's Poetry Anthology

and three poems in PS: It's Still Poetry - An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry from Around the World

also available on Amazon.

What an exciting  two years. 

 

 

 

 


In Remembrance of Connie -Autumn Theme Poetry Contest

Blog Posted:9/16/2022 5:19:00 PM

I have changed one of the instructions in my contest, "In  Remembrance of Connie -Autumn Theme Poetry Contest,"regarding the form to post in - as someone pointed out he wasn't able to post in the category Verse.  He said Rhyme worked because the Constanza isn't a listed form.
This is going to be a very difficult contest to Judge as the entries so far have been so heartfelt and beautiful.

It you didn't know Connie but would like to enter, just write a beautiful poem for her, about Autumn. It was her favorite season and she was wanting me to send her Fall pictures
this year.

If there is anything good that came out of this it is Connies entering heaven and seeing her beloved Husband and son. What a joyful moment for her to experience. She will be greatly missed...

Thanks Michael: Connie was such a beautiful and endearing friend. She has affected so many with her sudden passing. We can only be happy she has been reunited with the love of her life.
