This is my first time to your sight. I really have not read anything yet, but I will. I have been writing poetry for 11 years now and have some 50 poems penned in my port folio. These are the ones that I have deemed worth saving. I was born and raised in a German Catholic home but found out later that we had a jewish heritage. It turns out that my paternal grandparents changed their name and came to America in 1910 to escape the growing antisemitism. Well, anyway, I love poetry--words, the way they sound.

Hi everyone I'm excited about viewing the website and learning so much about you. I'm also excited about sharing my works with so many others who have works in common with me. I am a native of Indiana, Indiana Hoosiers, however, I've endeavored a closer venture to the homelands of Zora Neale Hurston and Eatonville, Florida.
For of you who know her as a famous African American author, anthropologist, and novelist, the Zora Neale Hurston museum is home to Eatonville, Florida. I've been in Florida now for about nine years continuing my writing including my poetry and some anthological pieces. The journey has been fulfilling and enlightening.
Here's a glimpse at some new work of mine and included amongst my other works on www.lulu.com/10digits a poetry site for those interested in self publishing.

Native Of Another World
Evening shade slays the dial closer away from pillars of
time though they ring loudly,gems of the dial slowly
hide in the dimming light, cotton rays the step and
chimes with the weight of gold, jade, turquoise royals
charming as they perfume and glaze embodying the precious,
bold air and breathe of majestic, pyramids column her beauty
into the shadows away from pillars embracing time again,
haunted, bestilling as the air submerging into me one last
look as if it were of white desert gold twirling in the
dark still air, the essence and smell of silk, steps ago,
depart my soul neigh till time unravels, in the dimming
light cotton falls, beauty holding as the stone pillars of
time stack higher and higher meeting the air above,
halo my step,breathe your air and beat with my heart,
haunted, buds of the flower perch atop steps shadows no longer secret the maps the pathway breathes dust of white gold from the pot of
black noire, I inhale until the veil covers me with stars of Taurus,the chiming grows louder charioting the beating heart to its destiny, neigh my soul depart and hold eternally

I am a young lady. A child you may refer to me as. But i can relate to most of these poems. I can get the feel of them!!! The urge i have to just bust out and scream YES!!! Is reluctant. But the pain and the sorrow i have to make me cry is why my true feelings are discoverd in these poems.....Keep it up!!
