About Me

This is my letter to the world,
That never wrote to me,-
The simple news that Nature told,
With tender majesty.

Her message is committed
To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
Judge tenderly of me.

~Emily Dickinson


I'm a 29 year old women who loves her family, her friends, her writing, and everything else, in that order. I was born and raised in the south by yankee parents, along with my brother and sister. I'm the baby of the family so am a bit on the impulsive side. I'll will, have, or plan to try anything and everything at least once, then again and again if I enjoy it! My interests are many and varied, they go from writing and reading to hiking and camping. I love to eat, cook and feed people all while having great conversations or listening to awesome music. I'm a debater for the sake of the debate, give me enough information and I'll argue till the cows come home, but that doesn't mean I can't see the merit in an opposing opinion if there is any. I have been known to change my point of view on a topic after lengthy disscussions, does that make me wishy-washy, no just informed. Information is knowledge and knowledge is power. The more you know the greater a person you are, provided you can know without having to tell everybody else so! My all time favorite poet is Emily Dickinson, she was a woman way before her time, a pioneer for female writers. I read because I enjoy it, because I want and need to know and becuase it's fun to take a trip to a new place and time. If you have a question or something to say just ask or speak, I'll listen with an open mind!

My main focus in writing is poetry. I write what I feel, what I see, but most of all I write of things I have experienced in my life. All of my pieces are special to me, but I gladly share them with everyone in the hopes that one of my pieces touches you in some way. I share them in the hopes that I might be the inspiration a person needs to put pen to paper and become a writer. Please treat my work with respect, but give me your honest thoughts and feelings in your reviews. I write becasue I love to do it but I am still learning the fine art of the craft. Any help from fellow writers or readers for me to improve my writing is greatly appreciated. As is the time you take to read my work. Please read to your hearts content.

A Few Great Quotes:

"What lies behind us and what lies in front of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."~ Ralph Waldo Emerson(1803-1882)

"On our earth, before writing was invented, before the printing press was invented, poetry flourished. That is why we know poetry is like bread; it should be shared by all, by scholars and by peasants, by all our vast incredible, extraordinary family of humanity." ~ Pablo Neruda(1904-1973)

You Should Be A Poet



You craft words well, in creative and unexpected ways.

And you have a great talent for evoking beautiful imagery...

Or describing the most intense heartbreak ever.

You're already naturally a poet, even if you've never written a poem.

Morning Bethany. You have so many poems and I have such little time, lol. I will get to all of them eventually, but for now if you could suggest three or four I should start with. .

Hope your doing well.
