RIPR – The 19th century author and critic Edgar Allen Poe once said, "Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words." Indeed, for many of us the careful assembly of words has the power to transform what we think, what we feel, and what we experience as we travel through life. As we hear from Lynnie Gobeille, words also have the remarkable ability to help us sort out life's biggest challenges and mysteries.
Lynnie Gobeille is one of the co-founders and editors of The Origami Poems Project, a worldwide "free poetry event" based in Rhode Island. She has published in The Sow's Ear Review, Crone's Nest, and The Avatar. Her micro-chapbooks can be found at origamipoems.com.
