Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. Happy Birthday to Peter. Your four to five day celebration sounds fabulous. You know how to party, Esther. But how can he not be a Libra? 10/10 is in the heart of Libra-land. My birthday is tomorrow and I’m deeply in Libra. Maybe it doesn’t matter if he gets such festivities for his birthday from such a wonderful wife/partner as you.
