Poetry Poster: “If Only” by Juliann Breting Rohn

People feel strongly about grapefruit. But love it or hate it, I hope you love this poem by Juliann Rohn as much as I do.

It reminds me to let go of regrets and embrace the possibilities of my mistakes and missed chances….

Juliann came to Known by Heart workshops at multiple sites. She encouraged other people to participate. Every time she’s in the room, she brings a wonderful energy and spirit to her own  creative work as well as fostering creative community.

Congratulations and big thanks to Juliann for this poem and for all the creative spark you bring to our community.


Thanks to Juliann and to Meleah Maynard and Mike Hoium of Slow Dog Studios for all the heart and talent they brought to this.  Thanks also to all Known by Heart’s funders, partners, volunteers and most of all the workshop participants for what you brought to this work.

And while we’re talking thanks —-Big thanks  to the fabulous folks at Broadsided for the idea of freely downloadable poetry broadsides.
