|I have 1 degree in Dramatic Studies, 1 Teaching Certificate, I speak and taught high school in 2 languages; French and English. I have 3 children, am widowed and have lived with HIV for 27 years. I keep a blog about my life with HIV, the address: myhivvoice.blogspot.com I am currently working on poetry/prose compilation of my life with HIV. My writing has been published on a number of websites: The Writer’s Forum; The Author’s Den and ALL THINGS GIRLS has just published one of my poems in their December issue. The most important thing at this juncture of my life is to teach and to finally give HIV the female perspective we’ve all kept quiet and still do, given the ongoing stigma and isolation which defines women with HIV. The poem below is one I wrote while I spent some time in a Palliative Care Ward here in Winnipeg. Winnipeg is in the Canadian Prairies and I currently live in a small beach town not far from the city.|

Angel With An Umbrella
Encumbered with the walker
I light my fire stick
My angel came walking by
and kept on walking.
