About Me

I am a Poet/Writer full of life and love; looking to connect with other creative people. I began writing at the age of 12; writing poetry and short stories for my middle school's small newspaper. I was always full of these words and a head full of imagination, that often lured me away into vivid daydreams. It wasn't until I was introduced to such writings as Shakespeare's sonnets, Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and Emily Bronte, that I found my unleashing through pen and paper. I am and always will be a work in progress, ever evolving...learning my Art.

Current Projects;

1. Working manuscript for poetry book
2. Working on Spoken Word Poetry
3. Will be participation in the National Writing Month Challenge on Nanowrimo
50,000 words in 30days; Starts Nov 1
4. working on characters and plot for an upcoming Romance novel write

What is Poetry~

~ Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance. ~Carl Sandburg~

~Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. ~Thomas Gray~

~ Poetry is life distilled. ~Gwendolyn Brooks~

~ Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things. ~T.S. Eliot, Tradition and the Individual Talent, 1919~

~ Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. ~Edgar Allan Poe~

~ Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth. ~Samuel Johnson~

~ Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted. ~Percy Shelley, A Defence of Poetry, 1821~

~ Poetry ~ Logic's the language of science, poetry's the accent of passion. ~Ali Khaghani~

~ Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~Kahlil Gibran~

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. For wisdom brings together within the truth of your existence, your soul�s 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 undeveloped within you and has always been and always will be. It has not been hidden from you, you have hide from it, so wake it up, face it, accept it, than use it, by becoming it.
