Poems are full of feelings, characters, tributes and ideas sprung from my imagination.
Poetry is an emotional well where our souls discover feelings we didn't even know we had.
If you dare to let the writing free, you will find your authentic self. Let my poetry touch you: It might come up as love, anger, pain or recollections from a time in your life. Let me know or better yet, write a poem and share it.
