    Laurie's work ranges from matters of conscience and social justice to experiences that tug her heartstrings. I could apply many adjectives: fresh, whimsical, caring, nature-loving, life-affirming, knowledgeable, grateful. The poems selected here give evidence of her identity as a world citizen..

    re my comment to your Jellyfish poem, I think I meant it was both a good thing and a bad that there was an explanation for the jellyfish

    A wonderful poetess who's poetry many times focuses on issues of importance regarding moral issues and injustices so commonplace in today's anything goes society, her range of thought is indeed deep.

Best Poem of Laurie Van der Hart

Conversation With A Bear

Hello, Bear
Siting there on the shelf
Staring into space
What's your name again?
Oh... Ok, I'm sorry
You' re not used to being spoken to
You're mad at me
For neglecting you these -
How long is it?
...Almost eighteen years!
I can hardly believe it
You were a gift for that beautiful
Baby boy of mine
From my very best friend
Whose firstborn arrived
Just two days before -
A girl!
And she bought you at that
Fancy designer shop
Called Biggie Best
Hence your name
Now I remember
He never loved you, it's true
Not cuddly enough? ...
