About Me!

HI!!! πŸ™‚

I am a Cancerian woman and that means I am passionate, volatile and exciting…. NOT! πŸ˜›
And just so you know, the name “Festival King”Β  is an alias coined from my first and last names πŸ˜‰

… Enjoy!


“Good and Sad writing, Sad and Heartfelt, Good and yet painful to read”…. These are a few of the comments born of my poetic seed. It makes you wonder the sort of woman I am, but I couldn’t agree more with these observations of men. My work is sad and yes, sometimes painful, still it gives me great joy when on paper I engrave them.

Though a good number of my expression is cast in shade, from a jolly heart it is made. Known to be quite witty, yet rendering no real β€œLaughable Moments” in what I poetically enunciate.

So what is my Muse and what drives me? … Call me a Back-Bencher if you will, but I have always preferred to blend with the backdrop of life’s scenes; I observe human interaction, and note response to emotional stimuli. From the outside, looking in, I write what I see.

Grim as it may seem, I actually find it easier to translate human confusion, lust and sadness; I resign to reach into the depths of others, probably because I am too scared to explore my own darkness. I stare through the windows of their emotion and create an impression of their feelings; the actions of even a stranger will give my words meaning.

Unfamiliar with the art of poetry, besides nursery rhymes I recited as a child I bear little interest in the works of T.S Eliot and Oscar Wilde. Happy as any surreal artist with words to say, more than willing am I to bear the title of “Sad writer” if to some accidental reader my literary inscriptions may relate…

This blog is a past time, but I do hope that you enjoy what you read….

Many thanks for stopping by!!! πŸ™‚

  4. Hi festivalking, thank yoiu for sharing and I appreciate your honesty, it is needed when we express ourselves, we don’t have to be happy clappy all the time, Jesus wasen’t but He still had the deep inner Joy of knowing The Heavenly Father’s Love.

    I will be having a break for about a week to catch up with my Computer backlog but I will enjoy sharing with you again when I return to full Blogging.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

  5. Thank you for stopping by and following Parzival’s Question. I’m glad you liked “when I was a forest”. If you haven’t read other writings and sermons by Meister Eckhart, I highly recommend them. I am enjoying reading your poetry and look forward to reading more. As Parzival said to all that he met, “God protect you.”

    1. Thank you soooo much for the honor… Not sure I’ll do as instructed but please know that I am truly touched that you deemed me worthy of such a nomination.

      Hugs FK! πŸ™‚

    i hope you have a wonderful day, peace..
