Biography of Joyce Chelmo

Joyce Chelmo poet

I've been writing since I was a teen. However I have only been writing poetry about six years.

I was raised near Boundary Waters in Minnesota,
and some say I love trees more than people. I am also
a visual artist. My specialty is colored pencil on black paper. My subject is my first love landscapes,
gardens, the wilderness, old structures.

Joyce Chelmo's Works:

None yet but I have published some poems Updates

The Orient

In a place where pale pink
blossoms fall like rain.
Land softly on the heads
of quiet people.

Where Cherry Blossoms
are sacred,
each petal a bridge
between heaven and earth.

Where ancient stone bridges
cross ponds of Lotus flowers.
He teaches English there,
as he learns to quiet
his own spirit.
