Default Group
I live in Canada in a western part of this vast country where the winter lasts for more then six months! I love the country and its people. My country has wonderful lakes and the Rocky Mountains with famous Ice fields. Ice, that lasts for more then four hundred years. There are still wild life like Moose and Bears - And hunting and fishing is common... Ice hockey and ice dancing competitions are the most popular sports in Canada as well as the Calgary Stampede…Now more about me…My hobbies include writing, exercising, talking to friends, listening to my favourite singers Elvis Presley, Sarah Brightman, Enya, some old songs from 70 & 80 and all other kinds of music, and watching TV on occasion. I believe that writing poems is a very good way to express your own individual beliefs, feelings, and thoughts & I always like to make sure that what I write comes from the heart and not merely the mind. I have a wide range of thoughts and feelings to express in my poetry. The inspiration for the poems that I write comes from sources as diverse as listening to my favourite Gospel songs and music. I also like to be able to write poems that people can connect with and relate. I have had poems published in anthologies from the Noble House publishing as well as International Library of Poetry and received and an award for my writes. In the future I want to publish my own book with my own poems and short stories. I am charismatic, optimistic, romantic, passionate, loving, and caring. Enjoy life immensely. I am interested in surfing the Internet, healthy living, Yoga & Meditation, reading, watching movies and videos, writing short stories, poetry, tennis, traveling to warmer locations. Love Photography - Especially the Rocky Mountains...Watching sunsets & sunrises. Take great interest in Architecture, Archaeology, and Fine Arts! I have a special love for foreign Cultures' - Enjoy romantic dinners for two on occasion... Spending time with my family and friends as well as meeting new people... Appreciate honesty, loyalty, and respectfulness of themselves and others... Music & Poetry has been my greatest passion...Peace, Love and Happiness to All.

I am like a strong tree
with deep roots and branches
my arms extended
in prayer toward Heaven
have weathered storms before
Survived a few hurricanes
that bombarded my shore.

All those I have loved
Wanted to hang onto me
my branches were strong.
However, I am not feeling
so strong anymore I am tired
with weather worn-wondering
if my roots will hold me straight
in the next storm that comes again.

I need to know that I am not alone
Unprotected, unsheltered from the wind
Please be there as you have promised.
Sometimes I know the winds can be
as the hurricane, force but I do not feel it.

At times, I walk in my strength
Feel wise, almost invincible
there are those blown away times
in all directions holding on for life
determined to survive
this may be one of those times.
While winds so strong bend in its force,
all what it is on their way?

Those winds will splinter and break
under a pressure, under so much sorrow
the noble trees, grounded deep
in the muddy Earth of experience
like cunning birds, or like riders of the storm,
Spreading wings to fly
upon wild currents of adversity
to find a shelter in hopes to survive.

You've been a busy girl again...!
My favorite bit:

"All those I have loved
Wanted to hang onto me
My branches were strong."


We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.

Thank you so much for your time

Warm Regards,
