The Fiery Heart
Luna In my city, if I love, I die. My life appears like every other life. In school, we learn to earn money, though as a woman of Marsad, I’m not expected to make more than my future arranged husband. I clean, cook, and kill meticulously. It’s expected of me.
The Cut-up Poem
WRITING A CENTO Writing is my passion, my craft, my life, my hobby, my career, and so on. It constantly supplies me with love, happiness, and overwhelming stress (do any of your loves and passions not stress you out?). The best part about writing is the challenging intensity that comes with constantly creating new art and life through words.
Wildlife in my Garden
Like most people, I went stir-crazy during the pandemic. I'm typically used to jet-setting on adventures, but instead I had to find the adventure in my own garden. I was extremely lucky that I was isolated with an outside space, where I was able to write outside with my camera or phone next to me.

I saw nature take on the dominant role and thrive, all from my garden in New Jersey.
Pride, Power, Purity Playlist

Strawberry Banana Bread
VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE (GF) STRAWBERRY BANANA BREAD I love to bake, and during lockdown I made it my GF mission to bake tasty, healthy, vegan, GF, desserts. One of my new inventions was my Strawberry, Banana Bread. My dad usually can’t eat strawberries, yet because I cut them so finely they didn’t upset his stomach at all! Everyone in my family loves this bread, and I may have the fussiest family ever for eating food. As always, I want to give credit where credit is due. I find multiple recipes on Pinterest, and then I twist them into my own recipes and concoctions! I also don’t use regular teaspoon, tablespoon measurements, and instead always use dessert spoons, and serving spoons … and I use the splash, dash metric for extracts, spices and herbs.
Colourful Sestina Gold leaves puddle near edges of my rainbow and every star glistens brightly, mine glows pink haze shrouds inside monsters from my dream.
