Welcome To Carol Knepper's Spirits In Peace Home
I am primarily a free verse poet, with a lyrical style; I, however, do use the occasional poetic form, such as the ethere and rictameter. My work includes love poetry, spiritual poems, poetry inspired by nature and the seasons, and humanitarian poetry. Much of my imagery is drawn from nature, which never ceases to fill me with awe.
I am first and foremost an advocate of human rights, peace, equality, and respectful treatment of this earth. I believe that if issues are approached with open-minded discussion, we can resolve many of the matters which plague society today. I also believe that each of us, in our own way, can make this world a better place.
It is my hope that you will find my work, which is exclusive to this site, to be and motivational and inspirational.
In the spring of 2014, Carol Knepper was informed that she was the recipient of the World Poetry Lifetime Achievement Award for that year. Due to circumstances beyond her control, she could not attend ceremonies in Vancouver, B.C. Carol became only the second person from New Brunswick to receive that prestigious award. Enjoying retirement from 30 years of teaching English Literature in New Brunswick, Carol continues to occasionally help edit books of poetry, as well as do book reviews. She was profiled in the newspaper KV Lifestyles as recently as March 16, 2018.
