A Note from Nirvani


Hello my dear friends and followers,

I apologize that I have not been writing as frequently as I had been.
I have been very focused on other passions in my life. I have taken up
belly dancing and have also been working very hard on fitness goals.
I have never been very good at multi-tasking. I tend to throw myself
into whatever I am feeling passionate about at the moment. I also have
never been one who could write multiple poems in a day. My mind
just does not work that way. I appreciate your patience with me and
hope that you will continue to follow. I am going nowhere!

Much Love,


Mystical Allure Award


This award is granted to poets who show a profound understanding of spirituality in their writings. An understanding so profound that it has an enchanting effect on its readers.

I would like to thank Eva X The Poetess for this lovely award. I am honored to have received it! Spirituality plays a huge part in my life and is reflected in my poetry.

I would like to nominate:



Om Shanti, Nirvani




Happy World Poetry Day!


Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.

~Audre Lorde

Liebster Award


Thank you to to beloved Ajaytao for nominating me for this award…I am truly humbled my friend. You are such a dear man!

A few things about my self in question/answer form:

What first inspired you to start writing a blog? 

Well I started blogging a few years ago, so this is not my first blog…just my first in poetry. I have a spiritual blog called A Soul’s Journey listed under my other blogs, where I have shared my spiritual journey. I love blogging and sharing with others what inspires me!

If you traveled through time, what time would you want to arrive at and why? 

Probably back to when I had my first child, if I could have the mindset that I have now. I would do things so differently with the way in which I taught my children spirituality.

Do you prefer to eat chocolate, sweets or neither?

Anyone who knows me at all knows I have rather a fetish for dark chocolate…

Do you prefer to read or write?

As much as I love to write, nothing in the world could take the place of reading for me!

What is your favorite genre of writing and why?

I can’t say I have a favorite, although poetry is my first love to write, most especially haiku!

What is your favorite non-fiction topic to read about and why?

I cannot read enough on spirituality. Right now I am reading all about the Tantrick path in Sanatana Dharma. I am also studying Ayurveda, the chakras, and astrology.

If you could buy one book that would help you solve a problem in your life, what would it be and why?

The Bhagavad Gita for sure! It has all the answers for life. I have it obviously and read it regularly.

Do you prefer to write at night or during the day?

Most definitely during the day…late morning or early afternoon. I am no longer a night owl so am in bed by 10pm, usually reading myself to sleep.

If you could be any character from a book, who would you be and why? 

I would have to say Eowyn from Lord of the Rings….she was so courageous and loyal and she single-handedly took out the Witch King…she is bad-ass and beautiful!

Do you prefer to read a printed book or an e-Book?

I love my Kindle Fire, but nothing is more wonderful than to feel the pages of a book in your hand…Getting a new book is like having Christmas over and over again!
