I am almost embarrased to write that I hadn´t heard of “Barbie the Welder” until I saw a post in a facebook group named “Metal art World” that I recently joined. I just thought that the things she created was really heavy so I sent her a message. It wasn´t until after the reply I saw that this was a celebrity kinda´ in the Metal sculpting art world. A genre of art I´d say that I myself “belong” to. So I went from happy to very excited and a bit nervous too I guess. I am honoured to present to you, Barbie The Welder:

“Do you believe in magic?”
“Umm.. Maybe. Why do you ask?”
“I seek magic in your eyes, the spark that tells me there’s a lot to be discovered.” Stated my own self while looking into the mirror.
“I seek for it in the outer world, and in many places but all I find is nothing. I get tired and then I find the evidence of it in my own self. As always”

Heart beat slows,
And breath congeals,
Slipping through your chest,
The mind descends,
Like the broken ends,
Of an old movie reel,
Until you find,
It’s good to sit.
For over several years, poets and writers around the world have been celebrating April month as National Poetry Writing Month, also known as, NaPoWriMo. As a part of this, many of them take a part of the challenge and submit their work through the month.
Yes, you heard it right, in this challenge you have to select a prompt and write about it for the entire month of April. You may also share the work online by submitting your site for the same.
The celebration started back in 2003 when Washington based poetess Maureen Thorson started sharing her poems on her blog. Even since then, the tradition of writing in the month of April started inspiring millions of people to try their hands at poetry.

‘The Road‘ by Cormac McCarthy is a masterpiece, a post-apocalyptic nightmare of a novel that paints a searing portrait of bleakness in the readers mind, and showcases the sheer brilliance that is McCarthy and his unapologetically desolate prose. McCarthy is one of those writers that split the reading public, his works are usually raw, bleak…The Road by Cormac McCarthy – Folio Society Edition —
