Susan Williams Poems

A Scrap Of Time

I need to find time-
a scrap of time
by the demands of everyday life

Fireflies Die

Fireflies die
Stars wink out of existence
Butterflies fall from the sky
Rivers take the path of least resistance

But Not Today

I have no heart today.
I think I have lost it somewhere along the way
From yesterday to today.

Rain Washing The World Green

..................Rain Washing The World Green
I have a homing bird feeling about
the rain falling

The Ghosts Are Walking Again

the ghosts are walking again
walking and talking in the night again
sorrow is eating my bones again

A rare poet of the real times that we represent, Susan is a poetess of rich thought, deep passion, great skill and penetrating words, a rare yet unique amalgam of so many qualities together. I adore this great poetic personality. I pray God for keeping her fit and fine for the poetic contributions to our world for ever. Regards. Subhas

A writer that makes a difference. She has wit, she has insight. Her verses sing to the heart, their flow, their rhythm is just amazing. She has a distinct style of writing that puts her in a class of her own. There's always something to learn from her. She truly inspires. One of my favorite poets.

Susan Williams stands out among contemporary poets, by her extra ordinary brilliance and aesthetic sense. Her poems show deep insight into the facts of life. Her wide reading is manifest in her large treasure of vocabulary, which allows her to use the choicest word in the right place in her poems. Brevity is the one of the major qualities of her poetry. She has proven her ability to pen humor too. It is a pity that she devotes lesser time for poetry; but that might be the one factor, which makes her poems more enjoyable.

Brillaint, creative, imaginative writer. Susan Williams poetry is thoughtful, refreshing and life giving. Her critiques of other poets are a delight to read. Her poetry takes you beyond the surface and her insights into human nature are extraordinary. She has the gift of painting exquisite pictures in your mind. Big fan.

I'm a uni student so moved by the poem Fireflies Die by Susan Williams it inspired me to write a lyric essay entitled Guiding Light on bioluminescence. I should like to include her poem in my essay if she has no objections.

Susan has an inner light that lifts up the whole Earth and she is The Light on our darkest ways. Reading her poems lifts up our daily mood. Susan never disappoints!
