Zoh’s Prose

I have been writing prose and poetry since I was six years old. Like many other professional writers though, who write for deadlines as I have, poetry and prose seem to go into exile. For the past 30 years I have been a writer who writes for all kinds of forums and they all have deadlines; tv news scripts, cable and tv programs, radio interviews, lectures, magazine articles, and political commentary. But to share one’s prose, I have always thought, is an intimate offering. As a poet one must not use words, but bear witness to their beauty, an unvieling rather than a buildling. I am always in awe of their majesty and aware of my limited abilities to acknowledge them in proper order. I have signed them all by my full name’s intials, for the “Jill” in Jill Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus never gave up her love of the letters that compose the soul’s song.
