A huge influence on my writing, a friend and the person who taught me how a modern sonnet should sound. Here is an excellent interview with her, you can learn a lot just from reading her talk about poetry:

Her poems are beautiful I wonder if living near the appalachians gave her inspiration. She gets into viewpoint and identity. I may have said this before but the problem of substance between what is material and immaterial really seems to mystify human beings. Are we just the synapses and electrical impulses of our brains?

I had a class where they brought in a former poet laureate of California to speak and I puzzled over his thoughts for days. Well worth it to read interviews they enhance the value of the poems and teach you how poets think.

Last week I had to rescue a newly hatched duckling from a hole in a rockery bed. I got it out with first and second fingers hooked gently around its neck and lifted it by its head. The mother duck stood agitatedly by, but seemed aware that this was a rescue. "seemed aware" is relevant to this story. The duckling, on the contrary, was nothing more than the product of two hours of life experience in an egg shell and then in a hole in the ground BUT as it was carried by me, cupped in one hand, to safety its whole tiny body was wracked, writhing with electrical impulses making its tiny muscle groups twitch and tremble...I could easily feel its heart motor-boating away. Fascinating. I dropped it beside the pond in which its 11 siblings were playing flotillas. As it tumbled down to the water for the first time, its inboard computer opened up the swim program so that on contact with liquid self-righting sub routines oriented it correctly and the master program took over all spacial functions and turned on the forward motion sub-routine ( water) plus the as yet imperfect sub routine for flight. It purred across the weedy surface and was lost amongst eleven identical others. It's the same with people except some are poets.

Does a master program work when you write poetry? Nature vs. Nurture?
