Welcome, I’m Caeli McKamey, a poet and explorer of life.

Why read poetry?

Poetry is a space of exploration. There are many forms of intelligence, poetry is sharing of our soul, emotions and experiences. Art has no perception of social separation. We have discriminated against words and the right to education and truth so we began teaching ourselves. Poetry is a film through the mind of the expression and the reader can feel the intensity when the words are genuine. All and any art takes us away into a place of peace and thought. We are a muse to the art in it’s own way. In addition, I have an obsession with my cats.

So, who am I? Well, I have my BA in Liberal Arts from The Evergreen State College. I have been writing since I was 16 and recently had my work published in Americas Emerging Poets, which you can view on Amazon, if you feel like it. I am a Montessori Teacher where I help children explore the world and also get to hang out with some pretty cool critters.


The goat is social and quirky, like me, which is why I like him the best.

Working with children has always showed me an inner gleam and understanding of the greater world. When we observe children we can piece together what has made us the way we are.  That immediate spark and curiosity for life is a trait that is inherit in us all from birth. Somewhere along the road we get distracted by life and forget about our child-like mind. This is a place of beauty and love for the world that helps us grow our love for ourselves. Once we hone that skill we evolve into seekers of truth and beauty. That is who I am as a poet, someone who knows words have power.
