I'm Claudia and I'm from Brazil. As you may have guessed, English is not my first language, but it's how my poems "flow" to me, so I'm sorry for any mistakes I may commit.

I used to write poetry when I was a teenager (in portuguese at the time), but as life and school became more demanding, one day, I simply stopped writing.

A few months ago, a friend and writer, mentioned that she needed a poem to be used on her book... So, I decided to try my hand into poetry again... in English this time... and  REVAY'S LOVE SONG was the result.  To my utter surprise, she loved it and actually used it on her book.

From that point on, I started writing poems from time to time... But not seriously and I never showed them to anyone, I never thought they were any good... Until I met my most dearest friend, Darren... He's the one that encouraged me to keep writing and to share my poems... And I'll be forever grateful for his constant support and friendship...

So, I ask your patience for I'm extremelly new on poetry writing... I'm still crawling, trying to learn, and wondering how I ended up having this amazing space to share my poems. 

Claudia

Blog Posted:1/1/2017 1:56:00 PM

I got an amazing present today... A Premium Membership was gifted to me by an extremelly kind anonymous member...

I just wanted to say "thanks" and that I'm really touched and speechless by it.

I'm still learning my way into poetry writing and all I got from the amazing members of PoetrySoup was encouragement and kindness.

So, to my Benefactor... thank you for this unnexpectec and much appreciated gift.  And thank you to all the members of PoetrySoup for welcoming me into your midst.

Hugs and a wonderful 2017

Clau
