Poetry

I love all types of poetry, whether it’s slam, sonnets, and everything in between. Perhaps it’s no surprise I find myself drawn to the Chinese language, with its pictographs and poetic depths. I’m also honored that I was chosen as a finalist in the 2021 New York Encounter poetry contest.

Here’s an erasure I’ve made, titled “her ideas go through pain.”

The Next Labyrinth Journey” chronicles, and contrasts, the varied ways that a labyrinth can be a spiritual practice.

I explore new ways to celebrate Advent in the middle of a pandemic in my poem “New Advent Practices,” which is part of Vita Poetica’s 2020 Advent calendar.

Check out my spoken word story about my neighbor’s Big Green Monster, an aggressive plant bordering my back yard. “Big Green Monster” starts at 58 minutes, 41 seconds over at the “Keep in Touch with Anna and Kate” podcast.

What happens when a rain drop crashes into your face? “Of Asses and Raindrops” poses the possibilities.

Check out “Be Still and Know,” a sonnet at Bearings Online.

I also love to create erasures from old playbills. Geez Magazine published my first erasure, “breathing and unfettered,” in their spring 2019 issue.
