Meet Dylan Barmmer. I met him because every year for the last 3 years, Dylan writes me a very personal, original and awesome poem for my birthday. These poems captured my heart  – and then my attention! Each are little handcrafted gems. I thought I’d share some of his sparkly prose with you today, because today is Global Poetry Day.


Perfect by Dylan Barmmer

If you could simply

see, feel, find all

the elements of yourKaren Salmansohn

perfect saving grace

then bliss would fall

oh-so sweetly upon your

flawless face

in ways

that all the makeup



retail therapy

shattered mirrors

never could begin

to even

make you feel

truly whole

so smile

softly, surrender


others’ opinions


and know

that you are

perfect as you are…

2013 Word Is Born
