Here are presented a selection of poems

where we find the geography of the heart’s home — not a physical but rather an emotional centre around which she constructs the story of her life. Her world is populated by memories of growing up in the 50s, her courtship and long marriage, husband’s illness, and children. But at the centre is the woman she has become who struggles to deal with the complexities of love and the difficulties of achieving compassion and tenderness in the face of adversity. Brave, honest, beautiful, these poems help us to understand what it means to be human.
