Kim Kayne Shaver

Bio for 2023

Kim recently had an amazing encount-er with a cuttlefish at the Newport Aquariu-m in northern KY. The fish locked eyes with her for 5 + minutes as it changed a myriad of colors—including a shimmering pale green with pink stripes! She believes this was its poem to her! Gosh it’s great being a poet and having extraordinary poet friends!

Reason for signing up:

I am a terribly undisciplined writer. I write poems in my head when driving, walking, or sitting at benches anywhere outside. I promise to write them down when I get home but then forget the opening lines and/or topic. However, I never forget to write during Lexington Poetry month! So, I write a month’s worth of poems every year. Thanks LPM!❤️
