Thank you for joining in conversation with poems.
In 2006, I began writing a poem a day. At first it was just a challenge to myself. Could I do it? I didn't think so!
I didn't realize then how this practice would change everything. Poetry was no longer something on a page, it became a way of being in the world, changing the way I move through the day. In 2011, I created A Hundred Falling Veils to share the poems.
It is perhaps foolish to put my first drafts into the world every day, but as Rumi said, "Be a fool."
If you enjoy these daily poems, please support me writing them with a donation (I won't really buy coffee, I'll buy groceries). And if you're interested in buying a book (to see what the poems look like beyond their first draft form), please visit http://wordwoman.com/
And, friend, thank you.
you are such a blessed gift in my life - thank you
I loved coming across your poetry and am enjoying engaging with you on your facebook page. Your presence is uplifting and authentic; striking my receptive poetic heart with rings of surprise and delight! Thank-you. 4 coffees coming your way.
Hi Rosemerry, I would often read your poems to my yoga classes, so now that I have shut down Serenity Space Yoga in Saskatoon, I wanted to send a big thank you for your beautiful poems. . . and a few coffees!
