Poetry Treasures 2 – Relationships – Anthology 2022


of Poetry Treasures 2: Relationships (Anthology)


New From  WordCrafter

Edited and compiled by Robbie Cheadle and Kaye Lynn Booth


Announcement – Blog Tour & Book Launch

Four of my personal favorite poems appear in this new collection created by Robbie Cheadle and Kaye Lynne Booth.

As a visual artist, I bring the unique skills of conceptual art into my literary creations. Spare poems and thoughtful personal essays are my passion.  My materials are gathered from memories, journal entries, cultural artifacts, found objects and communications.


I write poems in response to particular situations and deeply individual private encounters. Some are chance meetings, and others are gleaned from e-mails I receive or memories from my childhood or family life. My poems bring the reader into a private space where they may observe intimate relationships through all of their senses.


Below: I share the inspiration and thought I had when writing the four poems I chose for this new Anthology with the theme of Relationships.

_A Togetherness Poem_
This poem covers the space of an entire day as I ask my husband to write a poem with me in the early morning. The result of my request develops through dialogue and musings about writing poetry with my husband.  I selected this poem to share a relationship I have with my husband.  On April 14, we were married sixty one years.

_Afternoon Embroidery Lesson_

The poem peers into an afternoon activity. The setting is my grandmother’s kitchen, where I am a young girl who is stitching the future.  As in most of my poems there is a view into the thoughts and dreams of an individual. Often, there is a feeling that more than one person is speaking in the poem.


_Primavera: When Spring Break is Over_

I wrote this poem from journal entries and memories from my first trip to Puerto Rico.
My colleagues and I developed a spring semester course, Puerto Rico Culture,” where we traveled with our students for 10 days each year in Puerto Rico. In this poem, I write of our experiences collectively and individually. This poem embraces imagery and people on vacation in Puerto Rico.

_Full Circle_

I began writing a series of “found poems”  during the past couple of years.” I call this series,

_Thinking of You

Each  poem was  created from actual correspondence I received via e-mail messages or snail mail correspondence
Often the poem includes parts of the 2-way communication we share via the mail.


Relationships are golden and each of

 Arthur Rosch, Elizabeth Merry, D Avery, Robbie Cheadle, Harmony Kent, Lauren Scott, Jules Paige

Leon Stevens, Colleen M. Chesebro, Miriam Hurdle,

M J Mallon, and Lynda McKinney Lambert 

pay poetic tribute to their most intense

personal moments.

That’s right folks. Now you can get this wonderful collection of poetic gems by Robbie and her 2021 “Treasuring Poetry” guests all in one place. We’ll be doing a book blog tour April 25 – May 1 so you can learn more about the amazing treasures contained within, but you don’t have to wait.

When I am writing, I am conscious of being a weaver as I move my words, sentences, and punctuation around the page.    When I am making art, I am conscious of how everything fits together as I plunge my thin, sharp needle through tiny faceted beads, Czech and Swarovski crystals, circle around gemstones and capturing found objects. My needle is my paintbrush, forming the shapes and values that take me on a journey.

When I begin to write or make art, I prepare for a journey.  I carefully lay out all of the things I will need for my travels. I expect to reach a destination at the time when I begin to write.  – Excerpt from the interview by Robbie Cheadle.
