About Me

I am a creative, health conscious, quirky educator with a zest for life. Walking in natural environments is soothing for my soul. I prefer rivers to the sea, love bush and forests and derive great enjoyment from driving. I travelled overseas for seven months in the early part of my life which was an enriching experience.



Difficult to narrow down my many passions. To name a few, I have a deep love of nature; I have always been strongly drawn to the moon; my interest in the Arts has been with me from a very young age; I love all animals but am particularly passionate about cats, horses and zebras.



I have always loved nature and find it particularly peaceful and creatively inspiring. Animals and birds are also the basis of many of my poems as is the moon. Being a visual person, my inspiration can flow into poetic form from images which is greatly satisfying.



I have had a passion for writing poems since my mid teens which fell by the wayside for a period of time with the odd poem penned despite a hectic life. Fortunately I am now in a position where I can devote more time to writing ~ a pastime I find most soothing and rewarding.


My Poetry

I tend to write short poems directly in Twitter which I later update to my blog. I love the bursts of inspiration which can be quickly recorded using this method. At other times creativity lends itself to longer poems and my blog makes it easier to record these. After all, micropoetry is restricted to 140 characters!

My Photography

I have been interested in photography since my teens but have not had much opportunity to explore this hobby until more recent years. Some of my photos inspire my poems and I now have a website showcasing my photos called Brenda Aksionov Photography. Images can be shared on social media and can be purchased for download (without my watermark).
