J. E. Carpenter


Biography of J. E. Carpenter

J.E. Carpenter is my pen name. But, most people know me as Lis Carpenter. I guess I took the practice of using first initials from the old days when women would use initials so their work would be judged before their gender.

I have been writing poems since I was a wee child. They are everywhere. I have them on blogs and in notebooks. I wanted to write fresh ones here. I am tempted to transfer the ones from my blogs to this website though.

Fire And Light

Fire and light, fire and light
we were fire and light
before the world began
we shown like stars

now enclosed in flesh
like fireflies in jars
we forget we emit light
and a flame that consumes

[Hata Bildir]
