As the Earth evolves, so do we…
As we realize the Universe, so do we…”

First and foremost, I want to thank each and everyone who has come to visit my page! I hope that you are enlightened and in some way inspired with the messages, I present in my writings. I also would like to mention to everyone that, being that it is my first time on any site presenting my work, I welcome any and every kind of criticism. As a well- known saying, “Knowledge is Power,” (Sir Francis Bacon, 1597) I humbly suggest to all of my viewers that it is a tool for me, personally, spiritually, and emotionally to continue this open opportunity as it will serve me in the best of our interests of life.
As you get to know a little bit more about myself, I am, as you can assume, an open-minded individual that who particularly expresses herself through poetry. It is an art that I find has come to best express and show what goes on in this complex world of mine, one which I call my “Cerebral Sanctuary”. As most poets, I too illustrate my personal feelings into each piece that I make. You also will expect to see a more abstract style in my writings, also, a value of depth that it carries within. What I leave up to you to decide is whether or not, my presentation can be fiction or nonfiction, and what reality it makes on your existence.
Given that we are here to share with one another are experiences, I highly encourage everyone to feel free to share your work with me, as I have been given the privilege to share with you. Thank you all, and enjoy!!!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
[When our two souls stand up]
When our two souls stand up erect and strong,
I Am Like a Rose
I am myself at last; now I achieve
Here I am all myself. No rose-bush heaving
[I dwell in Possibility--]
I dwell in Possibility--
Of Chambers as the Cedars--
Of Visitors--the fairest--
Sex without Love
How do they do it, the ones who make love
I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
[Th’ expense of spirit in a waste of shame]
The expense of spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action; and till action, lust
Is perjured, murderous, bloody, full of blame,
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust;
Enjoyed no sooner but despisèd straight:
Past reason hunted; and no sooner had,
Past reason hated, as a swallowed bait,
On purpose laid to make the taker mad:
Mad in pursuit, and in possession so;
Had, having, and in quest to have, extreme;
A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe;
Before, a joy proposed; behind, a dream.
All this the world well knows; yet none knows well
To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.
