It started when I was a kid in elementary school and we would have to do those poetry units and we would assemble poetry books. I fell in love with poems by Langston Hughes and Shel Silverstein and Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. As I got a little older, I wrote down the poems I liked, and a few I had written myself, in a bound journal my mom gave me. I continued writing poetry through my angsty teen years and then life moved on and I just didn’t take the time to write poetry, though I continued to keep a journal on and off over the years.

Several years ago, my son and I were doing a poetry unit for school, I felt inspired to write some poetry again. Every once in a while I write something and publish it here on the blog…hope you enjoy!
