Joan’s Writing


I claim membership in the community of creative folk, those who seek goodness and sweetness in all things of Nature, and in fellow human beings.

And as a means of giving back for all I have received, I write, poetry mostly.

Because words have their subtle ways of coaxing, and I would use mine  for goodness only,  to bless and inspire any who read them. And if my words bring the slightest comfort or a twinge of delight, if my images expand someone’s sense of wonder and appreciation of the natural world, if what I write draws the reader  closer to  experiencing the Oneness of Creation. 

It is enough. 

Wishing you sweetness on  your  journey.

  1. Glad that you are going to be writing about disability Joan. I got your email last night, and not sure why you can’t subscribe to my site. Have you looked for the button marked “Follow”? I see you managed to “Like” at least one poem yesterday. Hope things start to work for you soon. Not sure that I can Subscribe you from my sude. Much love and hugs to you my friend. Xx

  2. This is so interesting to me because I lost my sight 11 years ago. I am a retired professor of fine arts and humanities. Sight loss cannot take away my passion for life or for the things I love. I can see in your poems the same passion. It is refreshing, for me, to read your poems and envision them through my own blind-sighted experiences and challenges.

    Disability is a topic I seldom discuss in my writing except for articles I write as a Peer Advisor for VisionAware ( on AFB’s website).

    1. Thank you for commenting! I’ve learned blindness can add many complications to life, but it need not squash it entirely. Everything I was before I lost my eyesight at the age of 12–a lover of books and learning, a spiritual seeker, an enthusiast of music and poetry, a friend–

  3. –I remain, through and through. And while I continue to wrestle with the term “disability”, blindness is a significant element of my life experience which often weaves itself into my writing.
