From the Author
Additionally, along with my wife, we have taken several classes from silversneakers and are eligible to teach senior fitness classes in their format.
However, though I have been active in sports and fitness most my life, and written quite a few poems about sports, I am not a nurse nor licensed health professional.
So how can I write nursing and other medical health profession related poetry?
The simplest most direct answer is, we listened to and asked our customers and wrote poetry they felt they needed for family and others in the health fields.
My wife and I had begun writing poems and selling them at art shows and malls in the early 90s to compliment my art work that we also showed.
Though we began with family related poetry, mom and dad and others, we were quickly asked to produce similar work, that didn't require medical knowledge, yet showed appreciation felt for someone who was a nurse or doctor or even other related fields, like emt and lab tech.
Thus began a process we applied to not only nursing related poetry, but business, legal, and teaching fields -
We interviewed people, had conversations, and received incredible feedback for these poems.
This also explains why the collections features a few non-generic gender poems, and have both a male and female language version for the same work.
Below is the original product description in the listing for "Nurses Doctors & Medical Health Specialties."
We hope you enjoy our layman approach of writing celebratory poetry for those we depend on in the helping professions. Thank you much, sincerely,
