Gael Bage came late to poetry after retirement from nursing management. She has had poems published in Mindfire, Amaze, Loch Raven Review, Fireweed, and SAW 2. An editor who saw her poems on Sam Hamil’s site asked to use them in a Spanish magazine. She received an Honorable Mention for the first haiku she sent to a haiku competition. One of her favorite forms is the Fibonacci; a workshop article she wrote about Fibonacci, including fibonacci haiku, appeared in Mindfire. Four poems appear in Poets Gone Wild Anthology.
