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.

Today was a beautiful sunny day
with no clouds on the blue sky
the weather was perfect
we were sitting on the patios
sipping tea - it was shortly
in the afternoon when
all of a sudden
a black cloud appeared
on the sky and all I could see
was the lightning.

There was a thunderstorm
on the way - the silence
was in the hot air
I could hear only a static
that accumulated from the heat
"unusual silence," was in the air
right before the storm
I could sense - the last few days
were scorching like a flame.

Always enjoy walking in the rain
but at this time
it was huge thunder
with a strong lightning
crossing the sky
single droplets start pounding
on the ground
and the dust formed bubbles
that I could see-as for me
the smell of the rain was very different
I was not sure why?

The rain was getting stronger
and began to pour
I have listened to the radio tunes
to see if there are any local warnings
suddenly, I've heard the voice
an announcement on line
there will be power shortage
because of the thunder lightning
hitting a huge tree near by
damaging the power lines.

As much as I wanted to go
for the stroll that day
it was impossible after all
with the unexpected rainfall
no power for several hours
the time was running slow
as you can imagine-
the silence was incredible
because the appliances stopped working.

My desire for walking in the rain
was dimmed because
of the unexpected change
in weather conditions
Mother Nature played a trick on us
with the thunderstorm and the rainfall
that plummeted on the ground
from heavens above
no one knew that day
about the sudden weather change
so my plans for having
"just the walking in the rain," has fell.
