I am a scouser and my romantic sounding Italian name comes courtsey of my husband. Alas it only means the proud one from Pisa. I love Japanese tanka and haiku and this is where I started writing from. I love writing poetry and hearing it read. Sometimes I read them aloud myself to myself and to others. I love the sound of words and playing with words...words are a thing of wonder and great delight.
On green days or blue days
how easy it is to talk with you
to fill our ears with vocal sumptuousness
and our hearts with delicious laughter
