"If you ask nicely, Kimberlynne Darby Newton will happily explain exactly how poetry saved her life. Darby-Newton experienced a "pop" after going to treat a headache, but it wasn't headache at all. It was series of strokes and came quite close to killing her. "I heard a distinct pop inside my head and I don't remember anything after that. She lost some communication skills, she walks with aid of a cane and has serious memory issues. "I was just worried that I'd never see Ike again her now 16 year old son." Newton, went extensive rehab and began writing as quickly as her wits would allow. " I lost a lot, " she says. "My career as a teacher, my students, the annoying inability to explain myself. She found a way to do it. Poetry. " I'd wake up, asleep at my computer," she said. "Poetry helped me focus," she said. " The strokes were my ability to cope. To leave something behind. To show my little boy that Mommy could at least try and that I never gave up. " 15 books later she is still at it and firmly credits poetry for saving her life."
