I am a poet and a writer, however, I have worked as a Registered nurse for over 15 yrs. Currently I working on obtaining a Masters Degree in Psychology. I am single and in-between school and friends, writing poetry plays a significant role in my life.
The art of poetry and other creative writing has passed down through several generations of my family. In particular, my grandmother wrote short stories, poetry and also kept a diary of all events and happenings that occurred within the small town where she was raised. My grandfather and my brother also wrote beautiful poetry. My love for the art began at an early age( 11). I wrote short stories because I was filled with an active imagination and found great adventure and in awe of all the new places and situations that my mind journeyed through. My poetry writing began around age of 12. My aunt, (An English Lit. Professor) gifted me with poetry books to read. She wanted me to recognize that poetry expresses thoughts and feelings in a unique way and language…utilizing style and rhythm that intensifies words to the point where poetry becomes like a painting with words.
It is my hope that within these pages you will find some verse or phrase that will touch or inspire you, open your heart and mind to the beauty... the soul of poetry!
