Bloggers Photo

I was born in Buffalo, New York and raised in the Hudson Valley. After graduating from High School, with just one year of college, I joined the Navy. Joining the military was good for me and broadened my horizons as a couple aunts used to say that I was sheltered as a child. I can relate to the forgotten shy child. I met my husband in the Navy. We have 3 children and 6   grandchildren. In midlife, I worked at a school for 15 years as a preschool asst and afterschool director, then at the library for 5 years. I continued to grow and mature, stepped outside my comfort zone. I am a born again Christian and love to write poetry. I am thankful for PS that has helped my writing immensely! I am retired now and have a bit more time to write and read many poets on this site and invite you to read mine too. God bless you!

Hi Kim a great contest! Loved the Challenge. I'd never heard of a Kyrielle before so it was interesting to have a try with something unfamiliar. Huge congrats to all your winners :-D
