Lover of Poetry, Prose, Fantasy, Nature, Spring and all things Celtic. A died in the wool hopelessly hopeless Romantic, on a journey of sorts. I write fiction although, occasionally loosely, Very loosely, influence by life experiences. I only wish my life was as exciting and passionate as my musings.

Stories

  8. Daddy's Hands

    I can remember him always being there. Yes, he worked a lot and spent a ton of time at the fire station. But he never missed a ballgame, he never missed a school play or choir performance. My daddy was not alway the happiest, but he struggled with thin...

  9. BEES AND TREE FROGS

    Sitting on a porch swing, rocking back and forth, coffee mug in hand, she closes her eyes and just listens. The sounds and smells of spring fill her senses. The thrumming of the carpenter bees flitting this way and that, chasing each other in a frenzy ...

  10. Natures Song

    The tribal drums pounded a soft, low beat as the pipes began to play their dream-like lullaby. Staring out the window into the foggy mist, there, through the curtain of moisture, a doe and her fawn casually moved through the trees ; grazing on the new ...

  11. Natures Call

    Suddenly, without warning, all, including the wind , fell eerily silent. The trees slowed their enchanted dance and for a brief moment all was unearthly still. The only sound – the drums telling their story, their history, their song -coming to a slo...

  15. Under The Stars

    They lay there, looking up at the star filled sky Holding onto each other as if they were afraid the other may vanish in a dream Hand in hand, legs entwined, skin to skin- almost as one The sunset over the lake had been so beautiful and still you could...
