“I did realize, as do you, how blessed I was to know bookjoy, the private pleasure of savoring text.”
Pat Mora

“.....and I smile
and know
why people write music and paint and dance, lifted as if they can fly,
because this ache
crashing inside
needs to be free.
sometimes, love
becomes a melody
others hum for years.”
Pat Mora, Dizzy in Your Eyes: Poems about Love

“I became a good writer when I saw the age of forty coming at me”
Pat Mora
