"In the end, I am the only one I can adore, and I am the only one who sees in my eyes the stars of the night, the flowers of the spring, the rains & tides of the watery world..."

Hello, my name is Faren.

I'm from wild Florida where it rains more than it shines. I'm a poet, photographer, passionately brown girl, nose-in-book kind of reader, lover of words & the earth.

I'm finding my place as a writer & 21st century poet, defying the conventions of my skin and the effects of crowd & chaos that infringe on internal peace. I hope to leave behind a few words that'll make people think & love & cry (crying is the most important). I'm also obsessed with my name and its all-too relevant meaning (see below).

................................................................

Faren {FARE-en}

noun

ORIGIN Celtic (Gaelic) Farran from Farachan, meaning "Descendant of Farachan", also Afghan Farrah, meaning "Glorified", also Irish surname,

Meaning "One who wanders (wanders, but is not lost)"

................................................................

I'm sure you're a wandering soul, like me. There are so many wild & wonderful things in this world, it justifies running around trying to love them all.

Thanks for wandering over to my blog, I hope you'll stay for a bit. You're beautiful.
