Heart of a Poet by Karen O’Leary

Heart of a Poet
The soul
spills on white sheets–
creative expression
born of compassion, honesty,
and dreams

  1. Dear Miriam.

    Thank you so much for publishing my poem. I really appreciate this opportunity to share my words at your beautiful website. Wishing you ongoing success!


  2. Karen writes from a beautiful place, her heart. While I am fortunate to know her as a friend, had this poem been my introduction to her, I would still be left smiling, and silently nodding in approval.

    Lovely site you have here, Miss Miriam.

    • Dear Sueddie,

      Thank you for your kind words. I invite you to check out Whispers–http://whispersinthewind333.blogspot.com/ The submission guidelines are published at the end of each month.

      Best wishes,

      • There was a time, before the blog came into existence, that you published a collection I submitted to. Since the blog came up, you (and Gayle, I guess) have tried to keep us abreast with developments particularly at the end of the month. Yes, I have been following and I think you do a good job with the site.

        I think highly of you and Gayle. Thank you for sharing and promoting poetry and yourselves Karen.
