The Alchemists Kitchenhttp://thealchemistskitchen.blogspot.com
The Alchemist's Kitchen: Elements of Poetry, Travel, and the Creative Writing Life fosters community between writers, travelers, and foodies. An appetizer tray of high quality poems from around the world, travel ideas, and useful musings on the writers life is what I'm aiming for. I've long been skeptical of the blog and this is my attempt to make peace with this technology by offering my readers something practical, philosophical, and fun. Focus on contemporary women poets and travelers.
released on October 23, it's a collection of poems written and re-worked between 1996 and 2011. Inspired by my own experiences, and by writers such as Sylvia Plath, WH Auden, HC Andersen, Luis Cernuda, Miguel Hernández, Maya Angelou or Paul Celan. Biography of Desire explains the history of a wounded person, where pain comes from, how it manifests, how it translates to anguish. It is a trip from childhood to maturity, a journey through an ocean sometimes unruly, sometimes calm, with heaps of storms, generally inner ones. The experience of this inner journey through different states of being starts with a rape, a childhood sexual abuse which marks the tides and the waves erasing happy memories. The poetic-I is a broken voice, sometimes on the verge of existentialism, some others speaking from depression and mental disorder; almost always from the strangeness of a world which is too beautiful and sinister at the same time, which he is unable to understand. Biography of Desire is an attempt to understand such duality.

Hello,salut!haai!barev!namaskar!MAMBO!hallo!aloha!yoh wah gwaan!ahn nyeong ha se yo !heisann! hola!xin chào !E karo! Welcome to the official page for the Trinidadian poetess and playwright Krystal Victoria Gabrielle Volney. Her favourite novels as a child were the Nancy Drew files, the Babysitter's club and the famous five. The poetess and playwright started writing both female and male poetry in categories such as fashion, romance, the environment and children's poetry in the year late 2010. (Cosmos and Spheres) The poetess views humans as both monarch and emperor butterflies because of the transformation from an egg into a butterfly showcasing the metamorphosis as various stages of one's experiences throughout life. Her analysis states that as a result of the prodigious difference between each human being in the global society, experiences differ and some persons mature into butterflies while some remain at a particular stage permanently at various points in their longevity. The contemporary poetess's character is floral. In the 21st century, this meant that one consisted of many petals and each petal told a different story of who she was. She saw lily and hibiscus flowers as demonstrating what it meant to be a woman and a lady. Some of her influences have been Mozart, Van Gogh, Emily Dickinson and Claude Monet. She is currently writing her second poetry book for 2012. Other upcoming works- book of plays
