Talking Pictures: Penelope Weiss

Penelope Weiss

Penelope Weiss, of Shrewsbury, write poems. She says, “Originally, about 50 years ago I wrote some poems, but then I didn’t write for another 45 years or so. I’ve been writing these for the last five years probably. I need to speak. I need to communicate. I need to create images, ideas and communicate with people, and that’s one way to do it.” She reads one here: bit.ly/0811PenelopeW about which she says, “I’ve been writing haiku but not just one little three-line piece. They’re a poem but written in haiku syllables, and this is one of them.”
