I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

    1. Nikita, I’m not sure if I’ve read yours today. I pressed on your name and it took me to google+. Can you please give me a link to your poem of today? Thank you. I may have seen it but want to make sure!


  1. I love this! I felt as if I got to know your mom–and you–through your description of her in these verses.
    There is a fair bit of alcoholism in my family, and both my late father and my mother were very stoic people, although neither of them were alcoholics. My oldest sister tends to take after them. My second oldest sister (the middle of three) and I are more emotional, wearing our hearts on our sleeves. I think our parents sometimes didn’t know what to make of us. We always had a very strong bond, which is still true today.
