Pattycake Poetry

High Five poem copy (2).jpg


I love everything about poetry--the imagery, the figurative and lyrical language, the rhythm and rhyme. As Poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge once said, "Poems are the right words in the right order." I like to think that this is true about all good writing. 

On this page, I've included some of my poems I've written for friends, family, and my publishers. 

I hope you enjoy my poems and that they will inspire you to write some of your own. Happy reading and writing!
