Greetings fellow poets! I am 34 going to 25 and my hobbies are singing, writing music; poetry and short film scripts. I love gaming, larping and intellectual stimulation and hold the Geek flag high. I like to think of myself as Basorexic-pan-sapiosexual; if you would like to know what means just ask or try figure it out. I will be writing from sunny South Africa, although with the winter we are experiencing the sun made retire for good soon. All the best to my fellow competitors and may the best poet be inspirational.

I have been writing poetry since I was 16, not because I thought it was a "cool thing to do", but because if I didn't my head would have exploded. With a multitude of words billowing through my brain, I had no other choice but to let them out. Some have been funny, many have been sad, but mostly, they've been guideposts. I hope you enjoy my ramblings. g.
I am walking my medicine path as a woman originated from Hong Kong and residing in the Cowichan Vailley on Vancourver Island. Deeply believes in the evolution of the human souls, I dedicated myself to the path of human be(com)ing through restoring all relations - within self, with others living beings, and with the Greatest Mysteries of Life. I am a ecovillager, permaculture teacher, herbalist, farmer and wellness designer. When the soul begins to speak, there’s no way to resist its gifts. I spent my short adult life learning to remember the language of the soul, and take away the resistance from my little human brain. The First Nation elder taught me to think with my heart, and I practice it in the art of poetry.

I had a book of poetry published via a publisher that went bust keeping my money and providing @ 15 copies of Facets In Poetry. I received these copies the day before my sons' murder.
