ARTIST STATEMENT -
Barbara J. Thomas
I write lyrical nature poetry focusing on a strong sense of place. I am writing a series of family poems that take place in Northern Greece and Connecticut. I am continually growing as a poet after a long career in education. I have published a chapbook, "Seduced by Sighs of Trees" in 2007, and have poems published in Lalitamba, Writing Nature, Wilderness Literary Review, Istanbul Literary Review, Bagel Bards Anthology, among others. I have read my poetry at Porter Square Books, Fireside Reading Series, Blacksmith House, NOCA, Borders in Boston.
