Yesterday was Burns night – a celebration of the famous poet, Robert Burns.
There are many other poets who are equally well known: Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, Langston Hughes, Dylan Thomas, Ezra Pound, E.E. Cummings and Emily Dickinson to name a few.
As I am coming into my first year of sharing my poetry with the world, I hope that one day my work will be as celebrated as the poets I have mentioned and I will have a positive impact with my words.
"The desire to reach the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise."
