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

For moments to come... (1 reply)

Wandered have I much in the realms of lust,
Tracing the dimension of ardent devotion;
Lost which is now, such the humanity is cursed-
Entangled in possession, which was immersed in this potion.
With flowers to be decked on the radiant moon,
And arms open wide as eternal blue skies
Greets which the clouds, brushed with gloom
Or the radiant sun unfolding life's surprise.
In anticipation, I stay for good days to advance,
Since time, tis' daring all wishes to efface,
All memories to cherish, all goodwill in glance;
Omitted by the soul, in a moment's disgrace,
Ergo, longer they stay, O keep them grabbed with love
Ergo, longer they stay, they shower benevolence from above.

Thank you so much for submitting your "anticipation" poem for consideration to be featured on my https://www.poetladykatz.com website.  You have some very good lines and some powerful emotions.  Your poem does need some editing when it comes to meaningful and appropriate English grammar.  Also, I would, if I may, suggest that you "tighten your poem." 

Example - "Flowers deck the radiant moon / arms open wide / as eternal blue skies / greeting clouds/ brushed with gloom..."

You definitely have the skill of the poet and a wonderful grasp of the meaning and power of imagery.  With some work, I would definitely consider featuring your poem.

I thank you again for submitting your work and look forward to rereading, if and when you choose to resubmit.  Your friend in poetry, Susan
