An Honours graduate with a passion for music, culture and  philosophy, Rici enjoys both writing and graphic design.  Other areas of interest include poetry, history, anthropology, science and the supernatural.

An avid traveller, Rici has spent many years living and working abroad.  Her favourite haunts include New York, London and the Scottish Highlands.  She currently resides in Queensland, Australia.

Featured Poem - Editor's Choice

The Garden
Tending a garden of pure potential
How the caterpillar has grown
Crawling from your silent skin
How you've blossomed on your own
Dancing across the lawn
As the butterflies applaud
Tumbling to the ground
Your smile a sweet reward
Golden rays of happiness, the dust
It sparkles in the sun
Glory in the everyday, silky
Memories delicately spun
Rici Witt
