Author has written 67 stories for Love, Life, General, Haiku, General, Nature, Song, Historical, Fantasy, Family, Religion, and War.

I'm currently attending Dartmouth College, majoring in Linguistics and minoring in Japanese. 日本語がだいたい分かるから、日本語でコメントしてもいい。

Most of my work here is poetry, with a few vignettes (super short stories/scenes) thrown in. I like to dabble in a lot of differant styles, so if you dont like a specific poem, the next is likely to be completely differant. So jump around chronologically, review some that haven't been reviewed much.

CRITISISM IS WELCOME! If you don't like something, say so and say why. I won't be offended.

An (F) means that a poem is one of my favorites. If you're just reading a few, please read them.

By the way, I have a deviantART account as Aldalambe, if you're into other art besides poetry.
