I started writing poetry in November 2006. However, after losing my poetry notebook with about 135 poems in early 2009, I lost my passion for poetry completely. I was jobless for almost a year due to the recession of 2014, during that time period, I reignited my passion for poetry to stave off boredom. I discovered Poetrysoup and started posting my poems in 2016. The first poem I posted, "Wings of A Butterfly"

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for participating in my "Pick A Title, Vol.3 Alliteration" Poetry Contest. A lot of great poems were submitted, so almost everyone who entered this contest placed. You all killed it!  If you didn't place, its because you submitted a poem I didn't list. Nothing personal...

Heartiest congratulations to the winners!
