Peace, love, and all that good stuff,
Rooted in boldness. Built with a benevolent sublime. Bonded with feistiness. Coated in compassion. Guided by a spiritual blueprint. Her poems be wild: like a forest fire without the intent to devastate, but to draw attention to natural order, love, and light. Sometimes polite, she writes, and other times she share stories untold, in bold.
