“Michelle Merlindt was born in a remote region of Australia and spent her childhood on a farm in the bush. Since then she has lived in eight countries. Due to her profession as a racehorse veterinarian, she spent thirteen years in Dubai where she first began to write and explore poetry. Now settled in the Gulf Islands of Canada she continues to pursue spoken word poetry in charming old-fashioned rhyme as a means of storytelling. Like a little piece of chocolate for the imagination, her poems are meant to delight the listener. Since she loves history and overlooked fragments of culture, each of her poems, set in a faraway land, is like a magical voyage to another time and place.
At heart I’ve always been a treasure hunter. I’m always dreaming of finding something rare, even obscure, something long forgotten yet timelessly precious. I’ve lived all over the world and often the little treasures that seem so exotic to my foreign eyes are second nature, absolutely commonplace and overlooked by those who have always lived among them. For me, these treasures are not souvenirs to be squeezed into a suitcase but fragments of history, custom and culture. They are the inspiration for stories of my own. The Pearl of Dubai, The Lost Library of Alexandria, The Persian Carpet and The Figurine are the best of these. I hope you enjoy them. https://www.michellemerlindt.com/
