The Wednesday Poems
These poems use minimalistic words and structure to explore and express emotional depths of love, family, life and death. They are as much, perhaps more, about exultations rather than expirations. As with my visual imagery, these poems are layered with word-images, emotions and ideas, written during a severe illness and subsequent death of a loved one.
Writing these poems helped me realize more than ever previously, the power of creative expression to soothe and self-transform. These powers are inherent as well in the processes of sharing, seeing and reading. This deepened recognition, borne of these poems and processes, led me to develop a new career as an art therapist.
