I have just read your work Lost in the Woods 111 on poetry pause! I love it! I will check out more of your work!
You are an inspiration. I am a beginner poet at 73., also inspired by nature.
Kind regards from one of the fire zones – Kamloops, BC.

Hi Val, thank you so much for the generous and kind comments. I’m so touched that you took time to find me here and to share your response to my poem. I think it’s wonderful that you are starting out with poetry at 73. I also started late compared to people who get an English degree and an MFA (none of that for me) right out of school. I think it’s never too late and it’s a wonderful thing for mind and heart! You’re living through a tough season in BC, my thoughts are with you and your neighbours. Stay safe.
