Priscilla Sunshine Eagle – Surrey Muse

Priscilla Sunshine Eagle is an emerging poet based in Surrey’s Indo-Canadian communities. She has presented her poems at various literary events. Please view Priscilla’s artist statement below:
‘There is a Phoenix’s tear who got caught in the middle of a Rose and became One with the Rose, a very beautiful yet troubled tough soul.
She talks to trees and serenades with birds.
Her name is Priscilla and her indebted smile is a bow and arrow that she uses to pierce through hardened, bitter tears and blood curdling suffering.
Her passion and inspiration of writing is hers to own without label and title.
Priscilla is a willing vessel, like the pen she uses to wail on paper like an electric guitar.
Lets get together and create honest joy within, innerstanding and Rejoice in gratitude for the opportunity and gift of your divine Self.’

At the April 24 virtual gathering of Surrey Muse, Priscilla will begin the Open mic session. More about the event is here: april-24-2020
