I live on the Island of Trinidad in the Republic of Trinidada and Tobago. Poetry writing is my dearest hobby, and I enjoy the challenge of abstraction in haiku and other short forms. Some of my illustrated haiku can also be seen at The World Haiku Review, Word Chimes, and War is not the Solution.  Born 1950, married to Anthony Cox in 1971; I am the mother of two grown children, a daughter - Yanda, and a son - Khama. Now retired from the Government Service, where I worked from 1968 to 2003. My peotry site PatchWork can be viewed at
