Lynda M. Walker might be working her way toward publication of an entire volume of her poems. After all, she just had her sixth poem included in "Colours of the Heart," printed this year by Noble House Publishers. The title of the poem is "That Perfect Man."
Walker, of Danville, has been writing poetry since she was 13, she says.
"I love rhymes," Walker notes. "I write rap, too. I like rap and poetry. I have a notebook full of rap and poetry."
She submitted her first poem, "Demonstrating Recovery," to a contest after seeing an announcement about it in the newspaper.
"Someone brought (the announcement) to me," Walker says. "I was scared to enter. When I entered it, they came back and told me they could publish it.
"Anytime (friends) see a contest, they say I should submit a poem to it."
Walker says she finds inspiration in anything.
