Born and raised in the midwest until 1975 when I moved to Utah. I began writing poetry as a student in the 60's and again in the 90's. In between, I pursued a career in nursing, but am now retired and loving it! My poetry has been published in over a dozen poetry anthologies, by the National Library of Poetry, International Society of Poets, Mile High Poetry Society, Amherst Society. Inducted into the International Poetry Hall of Fame in 1998. Invited to read at several conventions over the past ten years, in Washington, D.C. and Disneyland. My poetry has been acknowledged by authors Neal Donald Walsch, and Gary Zukav. I write locally for friends and family, for weddings and funerals and other special occasions. I also enjoy painting and sketching. I am currently enjoying retirement, and my grandkids. I have 3 children,4 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.

The Journey

Oh, I have walked this land before -
Have wandered through some hidden door,
Left footprints on a distant shore
Then traveled 'round the bend;

I have appeared in many forms,
And I've encountered many storms,
Lived and died and been reborn -
My lifetimes to defend;

[Hata Bildir]
