She writes: “I have been into content writing and poetry crafting since 2001. I love the works of Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, John Keats and several other poets. My first English poem ‘Mother’ was published in www.poetry.com. My writing took the major international platform in 2013. Recognition came from a Jamaican fine artist – the Editor-in-Chief of ‘Lucienne Lovelette The Arts Magazine Collection International’ (LLTAMCI) – The introduction poem for their edition went from me apart from few other poems. Now, My works are with the magazine for their hardcopy launch in The US in the name: ‘BIAM’. Opportunities from World Poetry Canada in recognition of my ’emotions based poetry’ are having me go the next steps in my poetry work. My peace poetry was on Display for World Peaceathon Exhibit at UBC. I was recently on a couple of weekly radio shows for the ‘National Poetry Month’ on ‘World Poetry Open Mic’ and was also the phone guest on World Poetry Cafe Radio streaming @ 100.5 FM.”

CRY OF THE ROSES…

As we sway smothered in blood shed,

Neither men nor nature know the pains of red.

Midst reign of terror, guns and smoke,

We lay like the extinct.

 

‘I’ – A symbol of love to this world –

the color of bloodshed, I do have.

I am a weeping rose;

Weeping to the depths of my heart

to see the unearthly, eerie

turn of ‘shoot to death’.

 

Earth: ‘mother to all’

is pained and wounded.

To see her children perishing in pain.

 

If Love be your core and

Peace be within you,

Lying somewhere unheard to, within the self;

Stamp down that gun,

to turn smoke into love.

Be a symbol of LOVE!

 

Love Can turn Ashes to Flourishing Soil.

Love Can Heal.

Love Can Cherish Peace.

Love can build an EARTH.
