One day I was watching a TV commercial and the word IF was featured in all sizes and shapes. A second later words of poetry starting cluttering my head. Each poem could not get there words out fast enough for me. It was the battle of the poems! It became overwhelming, as I could not write quick enough and developed a bad headache. Being grateful for this gift, I asked the universe to please stop the poems for just a day. They did and I began to write over fifty poems in two weeks. Sleep was dreaming of words and poems. Ironically when I awoke the poems were as fresh as ever.
The rest was history. I was fifty years old when this all started. Before this period of time, I never picked up a poetry book, nor wrote poetry. This wonderful gift is and will be treasured and my gratetude can not properly be express through words. If you could read my heart, there lies beauty!
My gift to others is my gift of poetry and writing. My goal is to have the world feel my joy. Presently I am writing a novel that is three quarters finished. Then comes the fun part, editing, which is a never ending story!
Born in Brooklyn, NY and presently living on Long Island, NY for the past twenty years. I have one daughter whom I treasure to pieces and my husband for over thirty years. We have one dog, a kitty cat, and two birds. They are also a part of my family.
