Haiku As A Stepping Stone

Hello Poetteers,

In this video, I share how haiku can be a stepping stone to poetry. Fun fact: When I first got into poetry one of my first pieces was writing several haikus to be one long poem. I think that's where I found that poetry form wasn't for me but then being introduced to free verse and seeing it's my style.

Poem: What Is In A Name

What Is In A Name

Your name is the love your parents have for you
it is something you give life to
be as strong as your name
and live it up

Your name has many meanings
of what it is in another language
it connects you to your homeland

It gives others an image that touches their heart
it gives you a love bigger than you

Your name holds your heritage and culture
it holds your heart
it holds you.

Stay inspired,

Revisit Older Poetry

Hello Poetteers,

Today we are revisiting some of my favorite and most popular posts I’ve done through the years. Some of my most popular posts are my original poetry. I really enjoyed the prompt to write a love letter between two inanimate objects.

As Ramadan is here and bullet journaling is becoming popular, this post is well loved. Here is how the first month of bullet journaling went. If you would love to read more from me, read my poetry book A to Z Poetry. Relive the announcement here.

Thank you,
