Biography of Ruby Star

I am a poetry writer and reader from way back, from early childhood. I did a creative writing degree in my early twenties and learnt that only format can really be taught, not ability. I think most poets have a deep passion for the power of words, their ability to lift us up, compel our compassion, connect us to our humanity and each other, and inspire change. I am a social and spiritual activist and I love the Spirit in all things because it threads us together in a luminous tapestry.
I have scribbled on and off for years, rarely sharing my writings. Let me know if I should still be keeping them to myself :)

I Will Not Shrink.

I will not shrink from that battlefield
where the heat of longing meets
the chill of dread,
where cold steel fingers,
sharp filaments of fear,
wrap tight my heart and
squeeze.

No, I will not.
