biting-the-apple-website-size “In Biting the Apple, a collection of 50 poems, Jeanie Greensfelder explores her interior life as easily and fearlessly as one might explore the familiar interior of one’s own house. It’s like a freshly opened box of chocolates, begging us to read just one more. Greensfelder reveals herself in such a way that we can see our own souls reflected in hers.” – Susan Stewart, Say It Write







Marriage and Other Leaps of Faith, Penciled In, 2015 – Purchase at Amazon

website-size“These poems move…through the perils, perplexities and delights of marriage.. all the way to those first intimations of mortality, when Greensfelder confronts that ‘stranger…in the mirror’ she has become: ‘I look after her as best I can / since she masquerades around town / and pretends to be me.’ Reading this book reminded me, as the best poetry does, just how important it is that we pay attention during our little journey here.” — George Bilgere
