About Thvia Stein
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI am a divorced, 43 year old woman of Scottish parentage with 5 amazing kids and 2 precious grandchildren. Currently I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

I'm not an expert on anything in particular but have the ridiculous ability of total subject recall to see me through most any single-serving conversation I happen to stumble into.

I love writing poetry because there is something awe inspiring about the creative and skillful structure of a thought or idea.  It is not just what you say, but how you say it.  Poetry is simply the artistry of language. 

Anyway, off we go to write great things and move great minds!  Thank you for indulging my foolhardy ramblings and for taking a moment to get to know me.



Indulge me Scottish style!

1 original, poem on the theme of SCOTLAND!!
Any form is acceptable.

Write a poem about Scottish slang, history, legend, landscape, stereotypes, bagpipes, or men who wear nothing under their kilts!  I don't really care as long as the theme is something Scottish!  (It doesn't have to be written in broad Scots dialect, but I will certainly be impressed if it is!)

Use google to search for subject matter if you have to, you'll find some crazy stuff!

I have written several poems on this theme so feel free to check them out!

*The fall of Macbeth

*Merry Queen of Squash

*Kelpie

*Sawney Bean, legend of a cannibal

*Away off the river shore

*Dunnotar

*Massacre at Glencoe


Have fun and be creative.  Spelling and grammar count.


*SQUEEEEEAAAAALLLLL!!!!*
