I heard her storyn on NPR this morning and while I didn't know of her before, I will certainly look into her poetry and life now. Fly free.

Ps: I haven't visited in ages but love the art piece you gave Lolo!

Pps: I am dating an 'elderly' English professor who reads poetry to me...

"So why do I tell you anything at all? Because you still listen."

Thank you for this beautiful reading. . .

Oh this says so much, and so applicable to the now.
"edge of dread",,,powerful stuff.

Thanks Suki for the intro to yet another unknown to me, poet.

(and I hope you're writing)

Wow - I have goosebumps listening to her read her poem. So heartfelt. Such wonderful phrases in it too. I do not know her, but will be sure to look her up.

And I love your new Voki - reading a poem and the ocean in the background :)

I'll always remember "The Burning of Paper Instead of Children." She'll most certainly be missed.

How lovely the last line about trees. I'll have to look her up.

A sad loss, for sure.
