email and poetry
by: Janelle

Hi Beth Ellen,

I tried sending an email in response to yours through the contact form. But unfortunately it keeps bouncing back. I'll keep trying.

Regarding your poetry, we would love to to have you share more. You have a great way with words. Also if you have any tips for others about using poetry to deal with their loss, we'd love to hear that too.

I would encourage you to sign up for the newsletter. Even though it is not very active at the moment. I plan to revamp in the fall and hope to create some specific interest groups. One might be on using poetry to deal with grief and loss. Anyway, I'll be announcing these developments there when the time comes.

About my poem "Cameillas"
by: author: Beth Ellen

Hello there. As a poet, I was fortunate to have some publications. If people are interested, I can share my poems about grief, losses/recovery. Maybe we can help each other. I am working through many losses & poetry gives me a center. In fact, crafting poems gives me a means to cope with the loss of a loved one, a foreclosure, unemployment & health challenges. But I will not give up!

your poem about grief
by: Janelle

Beth Ellen,

A beautiful and sad image painted with your words. Resonance is the word the comes to mind as I read your poem about your grief. I find my heart resonating as I read your words. Although we know each journey is different, you are touching universal emotions that others dealing with loss feel and will recall as they read your words.

Thanks for sharing. May you continue to find hope and healing as you write.
