Dawn Gorman believes poetry should be everywhere - puts it on beermats,
uses it to
work with people with memory loss, facilitates writing workshops, organises poetry
events and runs international poetry competitions. She is widely published, and has
performed in New York, Paris, London - and lots of smaller places in between.
“Poetry isn't a profession, it's a way of life. It's an empty basket;
you put your life into it and make something out of that.” Mary Oliver
"I am a dark, dappled wood
where fern fronds push
through musky earth.
My words are silk
against your skin -
touch them, feel them
now, and now, and now -
I am the one who dizzies you,
the one who will give you everything
when you are ready to take it."
