Joining VoicesNet is the best thing any creative poet can do to further their challenges in writing. I do enjoy writing children's, poems, stories and book. I have published two books; Alisa's New Life by Linda Bates, and Nick Bradford's Ghostly Clients by Linda B Bates. It contains my prayer/poem 'I see...what I cannot see.' which is within my list of poems here on VoicesNet.
My books presently are available on many online books store sites.
I like to write from a childs point of view, though I am 61 now I still can see some things from a youthful mind in a most creative way. It makes it fun to write, as well as fun reading for all ages.
Three of my favorite poets are Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allen Poe, and James Whitcomb Riley.
Not all poems come from the heart some are created from sheer wisdom of ones inner soul.
