The writing you will find here is focused on my first love – poetry – in all its forms. I have always been a free verse kind of girl, doing to my best to prove Robert Frost wrong for at least the last 30 years of my writing life, but I also love to challenge myself (and my author-readers) to write traditional structured lines and follow classic poetic rules once in awhile.

As I write this, my mind is swirling with possibilities. Although I have a clear focus and intention for this blog, some new opportunities have presented themselves. Offers quite unexpected and very much appreciated. It will keep me busy writing and I embrace it with open arms and open heart.

Ah, the journey of a writer. Never-ending, mind-boggling and at times, maddening! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I hope my writing inspires you, resonates within you and provokes Deepthought.

May your blessings be many.

C. Rhys
