Through her writing, Mary Beth seeks to delineate the joyful flow of life and nature that sources our humanity. At the same time, she acknowledges the human shadow as well as the very real difficulties of being alive on planet Earth at this time. She does not shy away from the reality of the dangerous precipice that is our current reality. Her poems often seek answers that might allow for a very needed evolution for our own species. Her studies with Jean Houston, Margaret Nash Rubin, and other evolutionary thinkers have helped to inform her thinking on what all of us might be required to change.
Her poems have been published in Your Daily Poem, The Autumn Sound Review, Soul-Lit, and The Oregon Poetry Association’s Pandemic publication.
