Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

sometimes I hold parties
with the stars, dress
in a silver ballgown adorned 
with a hundred diamonds, 
fabric falling to my ankles
and rippling outwards, 
a sea of glimmering crystals
and glass. canis major is 
my companion, orion and cassiopeia 
accompany me in my celestial
waltz, tiptoeing across 
black skies on friday nights
in our solitary ballet.
we are elegance incarnate, immortal 
beings gifted with the sky
as our stage, an expanse 
of glorious emptiness
to be filled with our dancing.
I take constellations
and lace them through
my braided hair until
I am dripping with starlight.
someday I’m sure
there will be a star named for me,
dwelling eternal in the darkness,
and I’ll dance forever in the dreams
of children just like me,
who whisper secrets to the stars because
only the stars will listen.
