I am a South African writer. Words are my passion and my profession. My relationship with poetry began when I fell in love with a lively Limerick at the age of five. After I heard how words can whisper age-old secrets and warn of times yet unborn, I accepted their invitation to play. Amid versatile vowels and constant consonants, I dance to the rhythm and the rhymes between the lines between the lines. Through the process of poetry, I have learned to know and understand myself better by better understanding that I will never know myself. I am happy to be serving a life sentence.
