ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Adriana, and though I have a nickname, an American friend has told me I have a beautiful name, and uses only my full name. I am a woman, a dreamer who has a passion for life, and loves writing, and I must say, that I breathe words in and out.

I started writing in 2003, as I was internally urged on to do so. Poetry is a natural outcome of my life, and I felt that I was guided or maybe even destined to write, a feeling that took over and could not be stopped.

I love writing all types of poems and am glad when emails arrive from other people on the web, telling me that I put into words exactly the way they feel. Helping people is a nice way to forget about one's own personal problems and keep on going. Another reason that I have been writing is to improve my English. As English is not my native language, writing in English is another way to be even closer to this beautiful language. It has always come so naturally to me, that I can consider it a gift from Heaven.

I was born and raised in Brazil. In marriage, I spent some time in the USA with an American citizen. Sadly though, it did not work out, and I returned to my native land, Brazil. Memories of the time I lived there are nice, and one day I hope I am able to go back to that beautiful country to visit and enjoy all the good things it has to offer.

Teaching is what I do as an occupation and have a love for it, while writing is not only my love, but a hobby and a friend as well. As life's trials come I realize just how blessed I am in God and that He is everything to me.

My children are grown and are young adults now. One is currently living in Italy and works as an Architect, and the other is a psychologist and lives here, in So Jos dos Campos.

Soon, I will be a grandmother and will continue writing poetry and enlighten people's lives with my gift.

My ultimate dream is to have one of my original poems used as lyrics in a song, and then hear it on many radio stations.

Slow Dance
Dri Cook

It's dawn,
hearing the gust of
the wind is delightful,
the lovely symphony
of birds enchants me,
slowly I get up
and pray,
I need to find
strength for another
day,
I reach the window,
I look thru it and
what I see
fills my heart
with joy,
I open it up,
I feel the breeze
on my face,
silently I greet
the majesty
of the mountains,
I watch the sun
embracing them in
tenderness,
I look down below
and picture the
trees dressed in orange,
the scent
in the air reminds
me it's Spring,
the sky with different
colors welcomes
the new day,
I realize once more
that life is always
a miracle,
I go to the mirror
and comb my hair,
I fall in love again,
slowly I walk to the
kitchen,
the sound of the old kettle
whistling on the stove
talks of old memories,
it's cozy,
I feel comfortable,
leasurally I savor my coffee,
the radio plays my favorite
song,
I start moving
my feet
and I slow dance,
I get real enjoyment
from the moments
I spend with myself,
it's Sunday,
I feel happy,
thankful for
being alive

"It's nice to enjoy the gifts and the splndor of Gods boutiful beauty, without the delight of him, we have nothing. Good job! " -- Brion'.
"Nice, another great picture of a great day. 2 things though, one I thought the phrase howling wind sounded awkward, i think because it's usually associated with storms. Also I think there's a few typos but those are just small things. On the whole, it's a good piece, nice work." -- kavya.
"thanks, Kavya but I really do hear the wind howling because I live in a highrise. But I made a change now. What would you suggest?" -- Dri.
"delightful is nice, perhaps you could use the word cheerful too. they just alot more in keeping with the rest of the poem." -- kavya.
"Hi Dri, I like this poem, two things puzzled me, Which I am sure oyu will explain .One ,trees dresses in orange,in spring? two I go to the mirrow, comb my hair and fall in love again? with who?yourself?as you were looking in the mirror, I am not being nasty ,just trying to understand the poem.D" -- Diana Venditti.
"yes, Diana, in my country, some trees do get orange color in Spring time and it is very very beautiful, and as for the other doubt that you have, I fall in love with myself again, of course, it's implied, since I am looking at the mirror." -- Dri.
