Jana Buck Hanks's Profile:
Hi Poets! I am originally from Kentucky but have moved around quite a bit, courtesy of the US Army. Have two wonderful children (Heather and Jon) and through their marriages, Dan and I have been presented with 5 exceptional grandchildren....and GOD, are they beautiful! LOL Guess my first feeble attempts at writing a poem was about 10 years ago. It was few and far (and I mean faaaarrrrrr) between the written pages. There was lots of rambling of words and disjointed screaming points, running onto the paper but other to a Psychiactrist, it did not make a lick of sense. It was not a pretty sight. Found this place, can't remember now...how...or why. But it certainly has taught me a lot more about poetry than I ever thought I would like to know. I hated poety in school....think I had myself put in the hospital during the poetry chapters, just so I did not have to do the work!!LOL I did not feel half bad writing it....if the teacher would just leave me alone and not throw all those poetic terms at me or to ask me to write a poem in a specific style. See I was just as much a Rebel back in the 1960's as I am now....I still write free verse and rhyme accidently on purpose. IT is a blue blazen amazen what the poets here at TPL have taught me through the thorough and knowledgeable critiques!!! I am beginning to recognize some of the stuff I do by poetic definitions! The whole point behind writing, is to reach the audience so they can see, feel, hear, taste and know the sensory images I try to portray.....imagery....being there....knowing! Didn't say I was good at it, just said I am trying to get good at it and I appreciate working critiques that help me improve. Bright Blessings Jana
