Welcome to Burst & Fleurish, a platform for self discovery through poetry, experiences and things. Poetry is the experience of us. A storyteller of our hearts and imaginations that is wonderfully personal and curiously universal. Poetry, a vehicle of self-discovery, offers us the space to experience vulnerability and humility. Behind the masks we wear in our daily masquerade, we recognize ourselves in its offerings we call poems, which creates a sense of acceptance and belonging that heals.
