The complexity and beauty of Linda Goin‘s poetry reflect her deep understanding of the human heart. Her kinship to the Renaissance ideal of excellence in a multitude of complementary passions is reflected in her art, photography, gardening, yoga, and–most importantly–her unforgettable writing. Never one to settle for the ordinary, she entwines her free verses with images and reflections that cut to the core of human relationships. These are poems to make one explore and strengthen one’s own heart.
The poetry of Virginia-born Ms Goin is informed by many locales, including Pennsylvania, Colorado, Australia, and Kentucky. She began writing poetry out west in the early 1990s. Her poems have been published in Yankee Boy Review, Poetry Superhighway, Poets for Living Waters, Mentress Moon (Sundress Publications), and Mojave River Review.
