Many have written poetry, as an artful expression, playful rhyme, romantic sonnet or whimsical exploration of life's deeper meaning. Doris Mae Kyllo has accomplished all of these through her recollections over the course of 90 years. Inspired during countless miles of walking, encounters with nature, reflection on lives long gone or a collision course with what was into what is, her poems and prose number in the thousands and counting. They flow from her soul in a continuous stream that is unstoppable. Doris interprets life through a unique lens of gritty reality that's been softened by years and a passion to find beauty where ugliness threatens to destroy all semblance of it. Family legends trace this love of words to relations with Robert Frost. However, the only proof lies in the evidence of her insatiable appetite to paint pictures with words.
