As Bri Maya Tiwari said,"There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken; a shatteredness out of which blooms the unshatterable; a sorrow beyond all grief which leads to joy, and a fragility out of whose depths emerges strength. There is a hollow space too vast for words through which we pass with each loss, out of whose darkness we are sanctioned into being."
That one quote astutely describes not only my life, but the poetry in Anatomy of a Poet.
One of six children, I grew up in a small Ohio town and married my high school sweetheart at nineteen. A Vietnam War widow at twenty, I went on to marry and then divorce two times.
I made a lot of choices, some good, some not so good, but as one of the poems in the book ends, "...at least I made choices. How sad for those who merely hitchhike along, never daring to choose at all." [from the poem, "Choices"]
Anatomy of a Poet was written over a period of forty years. The poetry is rich with memoir, humor, and at times is sensual in nature.
[Author Note: Poetry can be daunting and hard to understand, but it doesn't have to be. I feel a poet has an obligation to write in a way that everyone can understand.
A poem should flow easily through a poet's words, its meaning touching both the heart, and mind, of its reader. If a poem comes from the heart ... it will touch other hearts.

Anatomy of a Poet:
"This is my kind of poetry. Direct, beautifully expressed and without a hint of pretension." ~Allison Cassidy
"Too often poetry is written so abstractly that it leaves the reader with more questions about the point of the writing, rather than the insight, or inspiration. This is NOT true of CJ's poetic verses. The words are poignant, resonating feelings to the reader intended by the writer. Words from the heart that penetrate the soul!" ~Sharla Shultz
"I am not a poetry critic, so I cannot compare CJ's poetry with others, evaluate her mastery of language, or classify her to any particular school of poetry. Having read the poems, I felt something. The messages are clear and direct. She does not go through mental elaboration and the poetry touches the heart. Reading her poems made me feel nostalgic and longing at the same time, as if nostalgia and expectation are one and the same." ~Eleftheria Egel
"Wonderful, marvelous poetry that touches on the realities of life." ~Jack Henry Kraven
"CJ has a beautiful way of writing that obviously gets in touch with people and makes them think about what she is saying -- a very difficult skill to grasp." ~Lyrael Myrna.
"CJ Heck is predominately viewed as a writer for children, but she now carries over her approach to more adult themes. In doing so, she presents a profound world that is deeply sad, incredibly humorous and sometimes intimate." ~Joseph Daly
"One of the most gifted children's poets I have ever read!" ~ Todd-Michael St. Pierre
"Every primary teachers dream come true. I have found that rhyming words are important for six year-olds when learning to spell and read. I love herr poetry! She never ceases to amaze me." ~Joyce Bowling
"A natural, spontaneous writer, who freely gives of her soul to her readers. She never fails to amuse and entertain with her brilliant and witty writes. A razor-sharp mind and acute awareness of what makes people tick, or tock." ~ Peter Paton
"Her work is not only brilliant, it is a joy to the spirit and restores youth to our hearts -- a gift for writing what kids think and feel." ~ E T Waldron
"CJ flies everyone away on daydreams and wishes, boo-boos and bats, frog legs and monkeys, and old circus clowns. I can't think of a single children's poet that has the ability to marry the children's poem with a life's lesson and keep it fun." ~Rusty Daily
