I'm a poet. I write from my heart and soul. I write to share

Background Information

I started writing poetry as therapy for my soul while i was caring for my mother, who had alzheimers. After she died the poetry stayed with me. It gave me an outlet for the tregedies I experienced with the death of my whole family.  Now it has grown into its own entity, it controls when i will write and what i will write, but i love every minute of it.  My style is my own and the material i come up with are traces of my growing up as a military brat traveling all over the us and europe, and the joys I now have in my life with the man I have always loved. 

Growing up I was always looking in from the outside watching people and grasping life at its fullest. I saw the good, the bad, and the ugly.  My words reflect what i have seen what I have experienced and what I feel. It deals with the many events my life takes on and applies to everyone. I write from my heart and soul and i write all kinds of poetry to captivate the attention of my audience, and that also includes some poetry of the dark side. The words i write, i feel, That is who i am.

I am a very private person, whose world revolves around what i see, hear, and feel. I dwell on my thoughts as words dance around in my head till the inspiration hits to write them down.  I read a lot of books, listen to a lot of classical music and play with my animals, I have one cat named velvet who has a personality all his own.  I will be adding a beautiful little collie puppy to our happy home in a months time,  that will complete my minagerie till i add my small aquarium of tropical fish, right now i have a terraium converted into a lovely litte swimming hole for my betta to show off in. I'm a simple person with a complex mind that goes everywhere, you never know where it will fact....neither do I.
