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

Ache of sanity (1 reply)

When I have you on every sleepless night,

I see the glow getting bright and bright.

The dusk entangling the hold of sight,

And river menacing the lethal heights.

The rain engulfing the stillness of ends and fights,

How chaotic is holding on to every wrong and right.

But I'll keep you,in my air,pure and quiet!!

Thank you for submitting your poem for consideration for Featured Poem of the Month.  I particularly liked the line "How chaotic is holding on to every wrong and right..."  I appreciate you sharing your work with me.  - Susan
