.  words  .  trees  .  soul  .

I am a dreamer, a wanderer, deeply rooted yet slowly realizing my nomadic state. I love trees and poems and all things green, and I have an insatiable appetite for books. Lover of creation and loved by the Creator, I live in constant search of meaning and purpose in this tangled, messy world.

This blog is as much an experiment for me as life is, and so I hope it will be both motivation for and a reflection of my journey. Come along if you like, read a poem or two, pick up a book, and be inspired.

"The journey is the drama of the heart's voyage into the tide of possibilities which open before it. Indeed, a book is a path of words which takes the heart in new directions."
--John O'Donohue, Beauty

    1. Thank you, Sanjana!

      Oh man, what a difficult question... I don't know that I have an all time favorite book! I do love The Lord of the Rings, and my favorite Christian fantasy series is The Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight. My book reviews page lists all of the books I've given a 5/5 rating to if you want to see more suggestions! What is your favorite genre?

    1. Thank you, Saige! I'd love to check out your blog. :)

      As for tips, I'd say just write what's on your heart--the subtitle of my blog says "soul scribbles" for a reason. If you want to be really intentional about it, I also recommend challenging yourself to write a poem every day. That's actually why I started this blog: to help keep myself accountable for writing poems every day. And most importantly, don't worry about whether it's good or not--just start putting words on paper.

      Happy writing!
