Julie L. Moore

Julie L. Moore

Author's Bio

My work thus far explores “place” in its broadest sense. Some poems revel in the wonder of creation or bemoan the damages it’s sustained. Some poems discover connections between the natural world and the spiritual, or emotional, realm. Because of the pain I’ve faced in my own life, some poems search the deep recesses of suffering and all that entails—perseverance and surrender, tough questions and even tougher answers. The poetic exploration of such places, sometimes silent, sometimes deafening, yields an abundance of discovery, even if that discovery is merely a reminder of the mysteries inherent in truth and beauty. These are the daunting themes my poetry addresses. And every time I begin to write a poem, intimidation sits on my shoulder, whispering in my ear, “Who do you think you are? This is beyond you. Don’t even try it.”
