Why hello blog universe! As I begin this journey, and begin to share the way my hearts see the world let me give a little context.
I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember. Just take a look in my closet and my attic, the stacks of notebooks filled with my handwriting will attest to my being a writer. But I’ve been a closeted writer so to speak. Hundreds of poems that I have written lay behind closed doors waiting to be set free to reach whomever feels drawn to them. I am finally ready to take them off the shelves, out of the closet and set them free – abreast on the wind to reach all who need to hear what I have to say. I am finally ready to wholly accept myself as a writer without needing any validation beyond the words that I put to paper. So I begin the process of unveiling my poetry here.
My poetry ranges in topics from nature, to dreams, to word play, to my daily life. Each poem comes from my heart. But I have two hearts – no I’m not a medical mystery – I mean I have a physical heart, one that pumps blood throughout my body, as well as another that pumps love throughout my body. Think of it as another way of talking about body and spirit from a standpoint of love as the foundation. All of my poetry comes from these two hearts, sometimes they are based more physically others more emotionally but both are equally important and valid.
May this blog, may my poetry, may my voice bring light and love to those who take a moment to step into my hearts.
