About Me

"I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautifula faerys child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild."

I am convoluted and diluted. I am an origami-paper girl fluttering in the wind. My eyes are opaque and my voice is thin. I twirl in circles until the world begins to spin. There is no end and nowhere to begin. I measure time by coffee spoons. "I have heard the mermaids singing each to each. I do not think they'll sing to me. . ."


Coiled Alizarine

"Curiously deep, the slumber of crimson thoughts:
While breathless, in stodgy viridian
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously."
~John Hollander

Warning: I do not expect flattery because it is what other's deem the best currency for likewise flattery of his/her work. I do expect honesty and that is my currency. If I have wounded anyone through one of my reviews then I apologize in advance but I will never regret my words. They were written with the intention to improve and not to aggrandize an ego that is lacking. If you do not like my critique then ignore it or insult me if that is the therapy you need; either way, I won't lose a nights sleep agonizing over it. I applaud those who write to evolve, understanding that their work must likewise change to improve. If you excuse all criticism as strict ignorance of the artist's freedom and vision then quite frankly you're worthy of nothing but empty flattery. Even free verse has a form. Rhyme is not archaic. Varying styles are employed for whatever can convey meaning best. Structure should never take precedence over content. A good knowledge of poetry and writing means reading published poetry and writing. Dilettantes can only ever be dabblers. Everyone understands the difference between good work and bad work but not everyone understand the difference between one's good work and bad work. Without comprehension, words are words are words. And that's my two cents, thank you.

The Stars Are Mansions Built By Nature's Hand


THE stars are mansions built by Nature's hand,
And, haply, there the spirits of the blest
Dwell, clothed in radiance, their immortal vest;
Huge Ocean shows, within his yellow strand,
A habitation marvellously planned,
For life to occupy in love and rest;
All that we see--is dome, or vault, or nest,
Or fortress, reared at Nature's sage command.
Glad thought for every season! but the Spring
Gave it while cares were weighing on my heart,
'Mid song of birds, and insects murmuring;
And while the youthful year's prolific art--
Of bud, leaf, blade, and flower--was fashioning
Abodes where self-disturbance hath no part.



- William Wordsworth

Esoteric Theosophical Philosophy

The truth within your consciousness is like the horizon that recedes before you. As you journey towards your inner quest, in the direction of the leading edge of your belief acceptance. And your knowledge and understanding of the prevailing path grows, the next ascending possibility will always beckon you forth. For wisdom brings together within the truth of your existence, your souls essence, in which is attained by your own experience. Pursue your goal of achieving the truth within your reality of consciousness, in the most direct manner. The paradox is of course, is that you are both the voyager and the pathway; the treasure that you seek is most often slumbering within you or undeveloped in your quest. Its always within you and has always been and always will be. It has not been hidden from your sight, for the most part, its likely you have hidden from it, so wake it up, face it, and accept it, than use it, by becoming it.
