My life is written in ink, smudges, spills and stains bleed into letters penned in a finer hand. Seeping into Life’s parchment, strokes of quill upon page, dig reservoirs holding memories, Time, alone, knows their age.
Thanks for stopping by! A little about me...I write because I have a need to create, and a strong desire to inspire creativity in others. I write because I have a need to know, to understand, to express, to connect. I also have a desire to be a voice for those who cannot speak, whose voices have been pushed to the margins or have been silenced altogether. Even if I speak for only one person, it will have been worth it.
My poetry is probably best described as lyrical and narrative in style, with some definite philosophical and existentialist undertones. Some of the themes that weave themselves through my writing are love, overcoming, freedom, facing fear, confronting abuse, finding one's voice, a love of humanity, diversity, equality and justice. Writing is often a simultaneous experience of catharsis and discovery for me, and often a key that opens a doorway into healing. It's my sincere hope that my writing, whether poetry or prose, resonates with you in some way, providing a means of connection. I believe we are fellow sojourners in this shared human experience and connected, through bonds that can be strong and at other times tenuous, and are more alike than we realize.
Thank you for reading my work, I look forward to reading yours. I would also love to connect with you elsewhere on the interweb! You can find me at:
Have a great day! :)
