Biography

I was born looking for the perfect word... with definitions stuck in my gills I swam through dictionary and thesaurus, removing the masks from origins and plundering the back end of used book stores, pulling out dust covered copies of Gurdjif, and Trotsky in hopes of discovering a scrap of yellowed vellum, scrawled with inked quill, that would symbolize life in perfect meaning.

Shal I have joined lest I miss the delight of woven words of rhyme and magic on abstract subjects, fantasy and feelings blithely revealing and striking every word an outpouring of emotion and thought wish to read more of them coming from you. Shrin

It's supposed to be snowballs from the great 2010 snowball fight we poets recently had here at OP! Then again, it's quite easy to see how they turned into fireworks being set off by your beautiful red hair!
