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

Why can't you speak truth instead of not telling a lie...?

Why can't you sow a sacred seed, instead of uprooting all those sordid weeds?

Don't you know your heart ♥ beats for a novel cause..?

To expirtate all those malign weeds, life is too short,
So sow and unveil the magnanimous,
Can't you see time is passing by...?

Why can't you say ISLAM is right instead of condemning HINDUISM as wrong... O' bhai..
