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

Justice through eyes of victin (1 reply)

I may sound just a thought or just lame but for the victim it's all the life around in game

Justice is not just emotion that the victim feels

 it's something which the heart saying that you are correct ,

and the person who did this is one with mistake


In the heaven and hell ,

this word still hails ,

for many it's very important to get their crossed and missed lanes of line straight again


Justice makes no difference they say

But wait do you know what feeling the victims who felt the pain at that moment feels

They would use other victims if you don't raise voice

 They shall treat the other same as you 

If you remain like unturned dice


the other would ask you why you didn't raise voice .. You would have no answer just nod down in your choice


Justice once prevail can lead a better place to live.

Once invested these devils can be sent to hell and for slay

Come out with banners and shut the world of injustice 

don't fear of shame

 few days it's effect will get your inner strengthen and this world something would become something worth to live
