Description

In the book, Poetic Dwellings, Helga Vroom shares her poetry which opened a new, meaningful door for her and which brought her much joy and healing.

She writes, “All my life, I have enjoyed writing: essays, book reports, opinions, letters and more. The beginning is the thought process. Thoughts need to be organized. By doing that, feelings and the unconscious mind kick in. Those avenues travel and need to be crafted into a precise short form. Only a few words should express a lot of meaning. Each line stirs more ideas and thoughts.English is and always will be my second language. In the end effect the meaning of the poem is what counts.

About the Author

Helga Vroom was born in Germany in 1930. Her parents instilled in her a love for classical music, nature, travel, books, and more which she has followed her lifelong as her passions. She came to the United States as a student. The love of writing poems began in 2016 in her senior years. For her, poems are stories of a few words which express a lot – reliving her life, and feeling joy and contentment.
