    1. Thank you for the kind words! They are 100% autobiographical. I have decided to document this pandemic by challenging myself to a poem a day in reflection. Difficult because my prior experiences are in essay, creative nonfiction, and magazine writing, but I am loving the new lens offered by the moment. I so appreciate your comment.


      1. That’s amazing! I’m sorry that your family are ill, though. I’d never have guessed poetry-writing was new for you, and I think the challenge you’ve set yourself is wonderful, meeting difficult times with creativity. Thanks for sharing.
