Sofia Amina





The first result was controversial
so said the search engine, I think in a baritone voice.

Then growing tips:
1. In someone’s shadow

flowering, reaching up to 2-3 feet in height,
the stars just out of reach
its magic left in its roots.





Sofia Amina: Going back to where I started…I was first published on this IS&T and it’s been quite journey since.  Wanted to come back and re-visit – say hi, how are you?
