I am a native New Yorker who has had a love of writing since the age of 8. I began to write poetry, spurred on by hip hop culture and teenage love in high school. As I entered college in 1995, I was encouraged to perform at open mic showcases by other poets who visited campus. With that, I began a journey that has seen me perform at highly regarded places such as the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Brooklyn Moon Cafe among others. I am the proud author of two self-published books of poetry, 'lovestoned' and more recently, 'wife of the heart'. I have some poems up at http://ofwineandwords.blogspot.com.
the arms of tranquility sleep with me in the forest of far and away take each sigh that exits your lips and sew them into silver clouds we will use for blankets we don't have time time has us so sleep in the arms of tranquility with me. ------------------------------------ honey within her hair(for sagal) if the heavens could allow me i'd wish to live with your fragrance forever filling my senses flowers would never compare and even the purest form of honey would not match that scent of passion that drifts from your skin and lives within your hair.
