These poems are the living records of my experiences, passions and reflections. My writings speak of the transitions and changes in my cultural self, my maturing feminism, my encounters with destiny, history and nature. I write to see more deeply. I write for the enchantment of words, the haunting spell of images emerging from the foam of memory. These writings are necessary companions and courageous teachers on this mysterious journey we call life.
