When I started thinking about my poetry book, I decided to write about things that I love and enjoy so much. I feel for poems to come out right and be enjoyable, the poet has to be genuine and true about her feelings and what to write about, and words must come from the heart. Also the vocabulary and expressions used must reflect a mastery of the language to choose the most suitable words that will be a great match for each situation; that is a skill and a gift that God had blessed me with, and I am thankful for that. I have also chosen my subjects and situations based on the simple things in life that people enjoy and find close to their hearts, because I believe that when it comes to poetry, the simpler the better. I have also written about a range of topics to make it exciting and give the listener the experience to enjoy different situations and reflections; after all, variety is the spice of life. Some of the topics that I picked for my reflections and poems include animals, nature, cultures and values, and faraway places. I am a huge animal lover, and you will feel that throughout this book, I spend a lot of my time looking at them, watching animals and wildlife shows, and going to zoos and aquariums.
