I am a mother of five and a grandmother of seven. I love to read, write and socialize. I have the heart of an altruist and a romantic, although society has forever been trying to break me down. This may sound Utopian and naive, but my fervent wish is for a world where people mean more than things; It could happen, and pigs could fly too!

Sorry for the intrusion. If God was human I would discuss life with Him. Makes it easier that "God is" to me. As a poet do you feel too self reflexive? I do but have not been able to stop the addiction. take care.

I send you many thanks from this young and modest poet.



No thanks for giving me lovely and inspiring reads.

You are the perfect reflection of creative longing and darkness with so much soulful honesty. Your intelligence seeps into this entire web site; I am waiting for a trophy to appear next to one of your masterful pieces.



Oh still my heart...what an amazing compliment from someone I admire so much. Gratitude is not even close to what i feel right now.

:) Yeah romance is way easier to express through poetry or music than it is in real life for fear of not being able to predict the ending.... If only it were how the movies depict it... :/

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
