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

HE ! - by Yukti Ukani (1 reply and 1 comment)

He has fears ,
He makes them wings !

With the soft sides ;
He loves miniature things .
The way he smiles is the best parts of he
He knew to perform
Each day he lived .

He stares wth perspectives .
[The more day he shines ,
the more he drives ]
Sometimes an offensive
He holds his affections tight .

He's never a fancy ; rather he styles
Is he right over kind ,
Maybe he is twilight over wine !

He gathers courage .
He gives birth to dreams .
He gets to cry & comes up wth a prolonged fly .
He builds what he feels & helps who need .
He is fierce but its hidden inside .
He seeks it out for a misdeed .
He is grown up .

Now known as someone's HIS !
Journey shares within both
Empty voids of HIS heart
She fills it all ,

{They adjusted often
wth the manual fights }
Everything sorted with the core lights .
He becoming HIS .
[With motives , he achieves
He attempted , he failed]
Along wth brave heart
Never she complained .

Alwys he need ,
She never fails to believe .
That's ever he wished for ;
He is a gentleman ; wth dignity more !
