A Place for the Genuine

Poetry and the Wilderness Within


Aspens in northern New Mexico

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love meeting new people and making new friends; feel free to comment, ask questions, and introduce yourself!

My blog’s title is based a poem I include below. Marianne Moore is not my favorite poet but her poem captures what I seek in my own writing: a place for the genuine. I do not seek the Truth because there are so many truths, layers, and perceptions. But I do seek out the genuine, the heartfelt, and the  experiences that reflect integrity and a connection to something bigger than one’s self.



I too, dislike it.

Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in it, after all, a  place for the genuine.

-Marianne Moore
