Biography

I am a young-at-heart mother of three, living in Zambia, a small country in Africa. My love for poetry was inspired by my mother, who used to recite her favourite poems for me when I was little. My favourite poems are The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde and The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. One of my poems has been published in the current edition of an online poetry magazine. (see below)

Hi Chrystel! Thanks for stopping by at my profile! "Three Litle Words", though the theme is generally overworn you didn't fall into a cliche, you kept it short and actually made a point! I enjoy your work! Kudos!?

Chrystel
I think that I was expressing my opinion (re your verse) in a less than precise manner. I was trying to give you a genuine glimpse that I sometimes have of the difficulty I can encounter in making sense of the written word in its grammatical context. Several more attempts made it clear. Tommy ???

I think it is difficult for your latest verse "Out of my head!" to be liked but an attempt to reread delivers something. Tommy

Hi chrystel, just wanted to say that the reason I said I would try and live up to the line, "Poets see the beauty of the glass," is because, not only is it a truly beautiful sentiment, but also a really keen philosophical insight. I read that and thought, "Now there is something that would genuinely be worth trying to do, not worrying about whether my glass is half full or half empty, but just appreciating how beautiful it is to have a glass at all."

Just wonderful writing.

Chrystel thank you ever so much for your kind comments. Poetry for me allows that inner voice to resonate outwards to a wider audience. I'm so happy you like my poem.

Stay connected!
