I have been writing poetry since I was in high school. I just always loved to write. When I was in middle school I would write short stories and let my friends read them. Writing was just something that came naturally to me. 

When I write poetry I mostly write about nature, my cats, things I have personally experienced, the occasional spiritual poem, etc.

I am a baptized Jehovah's Witness. I have been baptized for 21 years. JW.org

I work in the CSS(Autism) department in a high school. I started as a classroom para but 2 years ago I was switched to a student focus para. Para is just a fancy name for teachers aide. I love my job though.

My poetry contest is up and running

I decided my theme was going to be "Mountains" for my first one. I want to feel like I am traveling when I read the entries. I decided not to wait to start it. I'm a multitasker when it comes to poetry. I love to read! So I hope you check out my contest.

I already have a theme for my next contest. I decided the theme will be "Rainy Days". But I will worry about that once my first contest is done. :)
