Poetry & Prose

Poetry is my passion. My favorite topics are the ocean, love, and the Arctic, thus the name of this website, “Oceanic Visions.” If someone or event moves me, I often write about it, transforming life (present, past, and/or imaginary) into poetry or prose. In its many forms, poetry enriches our lives. I tend to write in free verse. Through fictional prose, imagination helps to realize potentials, advances new ideas, and moves us towards the future. All poems and prose are copyright © Frances Hennessey, 2021.
