  • POET: Lisa Allen Ortiz (10/3/2016 8:34:00 AM)

    Ms. Ortiz, I have written poetry my entire life. As a child I learned of Emily Dickinson and have read and re-read her poetry many times through out my life. As I grew older I discovered her life's passions and foibles. I was born almost 100 years after her death and have cursed that century more times than I can count for separating me from her, for not being able to knock on her unwelcome door, loudly and persistently until finally she might have answered only to tell her that she is majestic and deserves to know that. The one thing that constantly annoys me about her life is that she was not accepted, not complimented for her work but constantly scorned until such time that all of her friends having passed she had no one left to tell her that she is immaculate. And withdrew into herself and her home. Well, I've just read two of your poems. And this time there is not a century forbidding me from saying this. You are immaculate. The depth of your poetry, the imagery, the emotion, the thousands of words unsaid in a line of eight....... You are spectacular. Thank you for living and sharing.

  • POEM: The Drawer Marked Meats by Lisa Allen Ortiz (10/3/2016 8:24:00 AM)

    Completely and totally awesome! I have another poet to read!

  • POEM: Around The Pond by Bill Galvin (9/20/2016 7:14:00 AM)

    I totally enjoyed this - though it takes us through your own memories and fondness for returning to places that always nurture you, we all have those special places and your poem made me long for mine... A good poet writes interesting stuff. A great poet evokes emotions and memories within the reader!
