About the Author

     I am a poet and a writer, however, I have worked as a Registered nurse for over 15 yrs. Currently I  working on obtaining a Masters Degree in Psychology. I am single and in-between school and friends, writing poetry and reading plays a significant role in my life.
     The art of poetry and other creative writing has passed down through several generations of my family. In particular, my grandmother wrote short stories, poetry and kept a diary of all events and happenings that occurred within the small town where she was raised (birth of babies, marriages,festive events and social happenings in the community). My grandfather and my brother also wrote beautiful poetry. Most of these writings are still intact and read from at family gatherings.
     My love for the art began at an early age( 11). I wrote short stories because I was filled with imagination and found great adventure  and in awe of all the new places and situations that my mind journeyed through. My poetry writing began around age of 12. My aunt, (An English Lit. Professor) gifted me with poetry books to read. She wanted me to recognize that poetry expresses thoughts and feelings in a unique way and language…utilizing style and rhythm that intensifies words to the point where  poetry is painting that speaks.” – Plutarch
      Today the Poets who greatly influence me, never-failing to sate my spirit are:
Ali Khaghani, Rumi, Pablo Neruda, Kahlil Gilbran, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Edgar Allen Poe,  and Shakespeare. It is my hope that within these pages you will find some verse or phrase that will touch or inspire you, open your heart and mind to the beauty, the soul of poetry
Namaste

    and, in your calm… I observe, often, the bustling movements of our brethren… I participate in their toiling…
    It is serene to find a place to breathe, and rest and contemplate such a poet’s soulful expressions… Thank you!
