Arlene Dery (1954 / Salem, OR)
Biography of Arlene Dery
I have lived in the Salem, OR area all my life. I love the beauty of Oregon. The mountains, lakes, rivers, parks and the Pacific Ocean is about an hour away from where I live. I once was away from Oregon for four long months. I longed terribly for the vivid green, the burst of rainbow colors that envelops the
country-side, and the towering snow tipped mountains. There's no place I'd rather be, this side of heaven.
This Poet Has A Lot
So many feelings inside to explore.
discovering one, then some more.
Emotions come out! I implore.
a thought to put down for evermore.
What to write, and what to say,
where are the words I need to convey?
Not giving up, and finding a way.
needing to pen those words today.
Looking for, a word to be found.
