It comes in many different forms. It’s been around since the beginning of time, and it evolves with each new generation. It can be said as unequivocal fact that there’s no longer a right or wrong way to do it. The only thing that has never changed is that every poem ever written shows us the eyes of the poet
As love mirrors the heart, poetry mirrors personality. Many poets choose to write about things outside of themselves—nature, God, events. This mirrors their personal character and the way they look at the world
Other poets take the outside world into themselves and use the intimate emotions to reveal their own hearts
Then there are poets like me, who do a little of both…or a lot of neither.
If you’re looking for flowery observations on nature, rhyming pieces with any type of standard or pattern, seemingly meaningless verses that you have to know the "code" to understand, you won’t find it here. The 36 poems you’re about to read are eclectic, to say the least. They’re a combination of honesty, raw emotion, vivid imagery, gritty reality, story metaphors, introspection, depression, and even "song-like" verses. My idea of great poetry is something that I can relate to, something that moves me, something that takes the human condition and makes it both frail and somehow beautiful in its starkness. It’s my hope that you feel these same things as you read my heart through various phases of my life.
Poetry is like breathing...
For me, poetry is the most intimate literary form. Reading
good poetry is like breathing - it feels so natural and
vital. It is like looking into a mirror that reflects your
feelings. Love, faith and fear are the emotions K.S. Wiesner
explores, breathes, reflects in her beautifully flowing
poems. With the ease of a somnambulist walking over a
tightrope, eyes closed, arms outstretched, she goes all the
way to the far edges of her soul - and takes the reader with
her. - Christine Spindler www.christinespindler.com
Rhythmic as the sea...
"Free verse as rhythmic as the sea, SOUL BLEEDS sings a lyric song of love in its many permutations. The jeweled words flow from the poet's heart, but the distilled truths were wrest from the fabric of her soul." ~Award-winning, best selling author, Patricia Lucas White
Karen makes me catch my breath...
"Karen Wiesner's words follow a willow-wispy me-girl through every twist and turn of romantic love from SOMETIMES I DON'T LOVE YOU to LOVE YOU, an unconditional love. Karen's wispy girl has grown into a willow-woman bending toward God and a love she can't lose in AND IT ISN'T THAT. Saved to the last, TOUCH, probes a woman's heart, bound in the pain and gain of the gift of love for child, husband, God, self. Karen makes me catch my breath, remembering."
