To Us – Author Glenda Higgins


Refugees from life

Well-read philosophers

With well-worn Nietzsche heels

On shoes smudged with dirt


Refugees from love

Meeting on a moonlit night

With well-worn hearts

Talking about our plight


With anger mixed in sadness

Chaos in the brain

With well-worn refrains

Needing to be spoken


Needing to be felt

On moonlit winter nights

In rooms of softened white

About the Author 

Glenda spent her early work in libraries – ten years in various positions, including cataloguing, which launched her on a favorite pastime of reading everything under the sun.

 Her start as a poet surprised her. She took a poetry-writing course. Two hundred poems wrote themselves in a furious manner, in two weeks.  This led to performing poetry in cafes and on the radio and about three hundred more poems.
