Kay's sharing of her poems and her knowledge was personal and a welcome gift to me in this cold winter. Thank you, Kay. And Glenda for asking her.

Kay has the talent for making everyone feel totally at ease. When she read her beautiful poems, you could hear a pin drop!
Enjoyed the photos--everyone looked so happy! Carole Thompson

Richard I was glad you came to Coffee With the Poets, and I liked the poem you read so much. If I was not already taken with your stories you submitted for the anthology, I would have shouted something like, "You can't give that poem to her. Give it to me."
