Biography

I've always been an advocate of expressionism and participant be it writing, art, song, dance or theater. Sadly though, I recall having my freedom of expression suffocated by close-minded art and English teachers always telling me I wasn't doing something right. As a result, art and design took a back seat in my life for many years. What did survive was the joy writing brings me. Whether writing two lines or twelve, happy or sad. I love rhyme as it was therapy to get me over a stutter and it seems to pour out of me like wine from a bottle! As far as art goes, I recently began making collages again and am enjoying my freedom! (see photos) All poems and collages posted on this blog have been copyrighted and are pending publication. Thank You!!!

Samples

This is me in a poem... Never thinking of the future not really making plans I just follow my heart as I walk throughout the lands I believe in energies they guide me where to go I faithfully follow signs allowing my energies to flow How my journey will end this I do not know All I can do is believe and let my spirit grow ...and that's me, Jane

Thank you for feedback on the language of trees, I attended a creative playful writers retreat this weekend and we had to focus on something in nature .....I focussed in on an ash tree and when I put my ear to its bark , I kid you not the sounds it shared were loud and magical!

you can make a meal on half a hoof,
put the rest in the fridge for tomorrow.
a half a hoof is better than...
no hoof at all.

Thanks for going back on some of my older posts and liking them, I appreciate that. I wrote 'Desert Sands' years ago, and I put it on my debut anthology "Playing in the Dark After Rain" back in 2016, so sorry if it isn't up to snuff with the most recent poems I've put up.

Secondly, thanks for answering my question - I was simply wondering because I want to get a feel of what others on the site are reading, as I think it'll help me get some much-needed info.

You have a good day too Jane.🌷

Hi Jane,
Once again thank you for your comments on my poem Solitude.

I love the last two lines of your blog.

I find that the words just bang on the door until you let them out. As with you they just come to me in rhyme. It is not a choice it is
the way they appear. Long may it continue..
Taylor
