I was born on the wescoast of Canada, travelled extensively, even living in UK for a year, only now once again to make my home back on my beautiful westcoast.
Recently retired from the Corporate Exec.Business World, I am now doing exactly what I have always wanted to do and love. This being writing, I am a published poet, and write poetry, short stories, and novels.
Also, within the last month and a half I have started to sing in an online free website with a kareoke type site for each member who is registered and invited in. I enjoy this and have made some very good friends there who are very talented, and for some reason seem to think I am also, lol ...lord knows why as it's the first time I have ever sung in my life outside the shower.
Lastly but by no means least, I do give thanks to my friends of some time now Ralph and Moon; co-owners of Friskys, they are the best; and both talented in their own fields (Ralph is a chief webmaster and Moon also writes), so thank you again my dear friends, you both are very dear to this lady and am honoured to call you my friends.

Eternal Soul Mates
"The Gift of Love"
"A Window in Time"
Reach for the Stars
When reaching out your hands to touch that which lays just beyond your reach -
Never let the unfufilled grasp of emptiness deter you from always extending your hand -
For it is in the persistence and faith that lays deep within each and everyone of us -
Which will ultimately result in fufulling that which
is our life's goal.
"To Love and it's All"
"Waiting for True Love"
The langurous liquid leaped forth flowing fully
into great golden goblets, while lilting, lyrical lutes lulled the gregarious,
gala guests gently into pleasant, peaceful, poses.
"The Poet's Gift"
The poet reaches deep into the ever melding energies
that lay within -
"The Celtic Rings"
The charm of the celtic way rises forth again to
touch the senses with wonder -
In dreams I soar high above from lofty heights,
gazing down on jagged snow capped mountain peaks -
I reach out my arm to caress your bold features
with my fingertips -
As I slowly walk along the beach in the early morning
hours, I notice how the sun's rays cascade over the granules of pure white
sand causing it to glisten and sparkle -
"The Unsheltered Poor"
As I sit within my self-made home, of cardboard,
plastic bags and rocks -
"The Silence of a Woman's Tears"
I cry for the choices that were necessary in years
long since past -
"Servitude of Life Rewarded"
When you walk in the shadows darkness surrounds
your every step -
The Nuance of Chat
Words spoken by each of us appear upon the monitor, and after reading each utterance a feeling of inner emotion is awakened -
There is a surprising ease that unfolds as shared life experience's pour forth -
Each of us becomes enfolded with their meaning and completely mesmerized in this moment -
The continuum of words flow faster and more of us is revealed to the other -
Each word is now allowed to wash over one completely and a trust begins -
Now at last, enmeshed, encompassed and feelings
aroused, the words spoken are for now completed until tomorrow.
A Man of All Seasons
Words slide slowly off his tongue, but spoken consicely and directly to each topic being discussed -
It's plain to see he is a man not only of an intellectual caliber; but one of charm as well -
Humour is deemed by him not only to draw out the reticence in others, but to instill a sense of joy -
This person, this man, is a man truly of all seasons,
and each of his seasons bring forth total dynamics.
"The Sign Of Knowing"
I have waited patiently for you as if forever; now the time draws near when at last I will behold all that you are -
My heart is so full of joy and even though we are in the autumn years of our life it matters naught, for feelings that are pure are timeless -
There will be a sign, a knowing that will pass between
us; and in the knowing a love will blossom in our hearts and souls forevermore.
T'is a land where fairies dwell, and harps and fiddles play -
Where poet's works are spoken, much more than one can say -
With grass and glade in emerald green, wild, and raging seas -
Ireland with all it's spells, and charm will always
be home to me.

"Ashes in the Wind"
Where have the sweet words gone, that came so easily to you when last we spoke -
Where has the attentive persona retreated too, so very quickly in such a short time -
What am I to conclude from all that which was spoken by you, and where now there is only silence -
Who are you really, your sweet words, attentive persona, now gone and so quickly dispersed -
What is now left of all that which went before,
simply, inevitably, all that is left is,

I miss walks down winding country lanes, amidst giant oak trees, and the sectioned off farm fields that appear like a giant quilt of mult-coloured squares.
I miss shopping in the village market square, where the townsfolk are chatted up by the vendors so eager to sell their wares of produce, pottery, clothing or crafts.
I miss the taste of a good hearty meal at the local pub, washed down with a pint of bitters, whilst engaged in friendly conversation with local punters.
I miss traditional rituals such as the hunt, the neverending beauty of the ancient yet timeless, architecture in both cottage and church.
I miss, yet remember all this and more of the land
of my birth; and now settled in my new home across the sea, I now embark
on a new journey and new memories.

"LOVE CREPT IN LIKE A WHISPER"
When and where did you come into my heart, I have waited so long for you my love, like a whisper you were there quiet, and waiting for the right moment to enter my life forever it seems.
Our lives and paths had crossed many times even daily, and yet I never knew what lay ahead of me until the day when we clashed; and my world turned upside down, my heart was full of nothing but you.
Now knowing all this and finally putting it into spoken words, I now know you are the one I have waited for so long, as you waited patiently for me knowing all the time that our love would be.
You've touched my heart, you've touched my mind with
your caring gentleness and patience, please know it is wonderful to at
last be the one who can say to you, I Love You.
"The Music of Life"
The music upon my lyre of hope play not; but sitteth in silence as though no strings were there upon which to play -
I miss the soft gentle music which surrounded my being with thoughts of joyfulness and fufillment -
Where will I find my lost strings upon which I have played in the past to lull my dark moments -
Then there comes from within, a voice of such sweetness and gentle sincerity, you only have to believe the strings are there and so it shall be -
No loss ever occurred to the music that filled your
life with joy, it was only that you forgot for the moment, how the music
of life is played.

"THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT YOU"
Why do I love you, well where do I begin, I see in you my future, and also a path to walk where never before I had tred,
I love the way your eyes twinkle and the soft smile forms from something I may say that touches you,
I find endearment in your protectiveness of me, and how you always know the right words to say to me when I need calming,
I admire your strength of character, your respect of self and others, given unselfishly,
I embrace your passion and sweet loving ways in all you give to me so abundantly,
There is so much more I could say or emote on, but
I think it merely suffice to say I Love You Always.
ETERNAL SOUL MATES
I walk as tho within a dream, yet awareness of all that is around;
You are there etherically, and yet your presence is ever felt;
Who are you to touch my life so, where have you been all these years;
I feel as if I have always known you in this lifetime and all those of the past;
Yet the energy that passes between us only serves to remind me;
That you and I are here now together to culminate all that has gone before;
And all that is yet to be, so reach out and take my hand as we journey forth together;
Ti's love of the everlasting soul that bonds us together
and this will always be so.
