Serafina's Promise

Gogo's words make me feel taller.
I guess people are like plants.
Kind words make them grow.

Welcome to my world

    Since earliest childhood, my world has been words ~ poems recited or sung by my mother, books brought back from the Brooklyn Library, the jumble of black marks on the newspaper my father read. I have always loved the way words sounded when they were bundled together or how they could say one thing and mean another. My Heart is on Fire I heard, and wondered that so few words could capture so large a feeling.

    Some words are beautiful. Some are not. Some sparkle like glittering fireflies. Others are heavy and hurtful as rocks. Iíve collected them all. Words shape my world.
