About the Lead Poet.

Bouquet of Stars is an anthology of poetry.  The collection is made up of two parts. The first half, poetry by Chelan Harkin. The second half, a collection of poems from Poetry Chapel poets from across the globe.

Chelan Harkin has always had a close connection with the spiritual world, a loving, ecstatic and expressive spirit, and an intimacy in her soul that she longs to share with others and the whole world. Poetry is one of her favorite, most satisfying ways to accomplish this.

Chelan comes with years of writing experience and two beautiful self-published collections to her name. Her work is highly influenced by other mystical poets including Hafiz and Rumi and has reached an international audience. Chelan’s poetry has even been highly regarded by American poetry and interpreter of mystical poetry Daniel Ladinsky.

Each Poetry Chapel Poet has their own section containing a bio and 6 pages of carefully selected and edited personal poems spanning race, age, gender, religion and everything in between

Writing has nothing to do with crafting perfect, calligraphied words— grab the inkwell and spill your truth.

A poem is a thumbprint of the soul and the page wants you to leave your evidence.

Look at your Mother deeply in both eyes until roles dissolve into mystery and bottomless love.
