Biography of Antoinette Kopperfield

I am a mother and grandmother with dreams and aspirations of becoming a better poet. Some people have asked me how I became a poet, and I tell them I wrote my first poem at Yosemite when I was twenty-one years old. I was overtaken by its beauty and breathtaking views of nature. Since then I have gotten inspired many times over by people and places. I have experienced love in the fullest sense which has given me a basis for my writings. In addition, I have been on a spiritual journey to understanding the self. That is my quest in life, and I aspire to get better.

that never stops
like a train moving backward
