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 found Her.. (1 reply)

In the age of patch-ups and break-ups,

In the world of casual hook-ups,


I found someone whom I can give my heart,

I found someone with whom I can share my

soul's Part.


In the darkness of betrayals and lies,

I found my enlightened world in her eyes.


She is not a distraction, she is not an attraction,

She is my motivation and my heart's half



She is my smile in worst situation,

Her smile is my favorite notion.


Her voice is my heart's relief,

And She is my heart's Thief.
