Hello! Thanks for stopping by. As you can see I love writing haikus and I've taken a liking to poetry in general.

~*~

I go by Children of the Root here on FP. However, most just call me Root. I love writing and I'm so glad I decided to post my poems here. I've met some awesome people through FP and Sword's Edge (SE). The SE bunch rocks! And I thank yall for all of your help.

I don't particularly like school, but I get through it. I love my friends and family. I love cats. I love reading and I love music.

All I can say, is its great to be alive and to have met those that I have here on FP.

Thanks to those who review my poems. It really means alot to me.
