A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour!
Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me.
Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome!
Mail me @firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or go to-
my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special)

I so appreciate you teaching us how to write a Sedoka poem. I’ve only heard about haiku and tanka forms, so this is exciting. Plus, I love this poem about rain…where I live, rain is a luxury we don’t always have and the way you arranged the words is refreshing!

Beautifully written piece, Trisha. You take it and make it your own.
