MEET KRISTEN TANABE,
THE WHITE PHOENIX
I am just a vintage soul storytelling through my poetry, fashion, and wearable mixed media art. I write to process life and tame my demons. I write to breathe easier, and I write because my soul urges me to. When I write, my verses emerge from the voice of The White Phoenix, the woman I am presently and the women I used to be lifetimes before.
Even if I selfishly write these poems for me, there is a magical alchemy about poetry, for once shared, I believe this selfish act becomes one of selflessness. Although these words I publish will never hold the same meaning to anyone as they do for me, I offer them to the world in hopes that they will touch the hearts of others and inspire them to take a deep dive into who they are.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for stopping by my sanctuary on the internet. I am so happy you found your way here, and I do hope you stay a while.
Light and love . . .
