poet · writer
I write to discover what I do not know. Building a poem, word by word and line by line, I become both explorer and creator.
These poems come from a poet at the height of her powers, able to swim into deep pools of the senses and the deeper pools of understanding, subtle and complex as multiple ripples spreading and rebounding on the surface of a pond. These are poems to come for the pure pleasure in words and rhythms and play, then return again and again, for the intimate whisperings of a truer life under the surfaces of things.
—Marjorie Hudson, author of Accidental Birds of the Carolinas
