Biography of Jennifer Barnard

I'm married - a grandmother - I love irony and satire in poetry. I've been writing for about ten years - I've performed my poetry in pubs, at concerts, on buses, to friends - foes - I love challenges in writing - many lemons
have come by me - I've tried to turn them into creative lem
ade - I'm working on expanding language as much as I can -an
interest in American poetry is burgeoning.I love Richard Wilbur - his 'Love calls us to the things of this world'
still inspires and thrills me.

I would like to co-respond with fellow poets who would
like to offer helpful criticism of my poetry. I'm not thin
skinned(I hope)

Lately The Moon

Lately the moon travels with Venus
The night sky opens with a whoosh
like a clerical umbrella
of strategically placed stars.
Fulgent light enters - a camera snaps
Time breaks free from clocks.
Ticked, marked, it swirls and convolutes
Easily I mistake it for heaven
without fear of gods in raging chariots.
