Welcome to my Poet Lady Chat Room. I would like to invite you to click on the chat box and type in a question, a suggestion, submit a poem, in other words – “chat with me.” I may, if you submit a poem, decide to feature it in my Poem of the Week section or, we may simply exchange ideas and suggestions about your poem.

This is a place to “talk” poetry with someone who has loved it all her life. I have a true passion for the possibilities of poetry and would love to hear your thoughts and/or read your poem. I will be happy to offer my reaction to your work and, based on over 40 years of teaching poetry, organizing, and conducting poetry workshops, working as a book review editor for an international poetry magazine, authoring five books of poetry and two textbooks on teaching poetry, send along my thoughts on ways to make your poem stronger and more impactful.

If you’re on my site, you have a connection to poetry. Feel free to connect with me – right here -right now, by typing your message into the “chat box” and clicking send. I’m waiting…


Your friend in poetry, Susan

I am someone you have probably thought about.

That someone changed into known

You first meet unknowingly.

the first man you ever touched his hand as finger intertwined.


I am the first story you ever remember


You want to forget but you didn't.


I am curve of your smile and hot water of tear but

You’ll never realize the warmth that it has.


I am red yellowish sun you always want to see

But your eyes can’t do it

I am sun which protects you from cold without

You knowing.


I am the first rapper of your gift(life) that decorates your gift(life) definitely but never be a part of yours.


I am your good night bed shit you can throw yourself and feel soft.

I come in so many forms it depends on the view you choose.


I am of so many pieces

You’ll never be able to gather.

I am everything and nothing you ever meant.
