Over the years I have written poetry. It takes time to set oneself aside from all the loves and interests around you; the things that make every day bearable. I found it as difficult as any until I fell ill with chronic fatigue, During the years when I was laid aside, I found time to turn inward and let poetry form. And so my little book of poems was born. 

It was cathartic to turn what so often felt dark into something else, something that had meaning. Below are a couple of poems from the book that reflect my journey through difficult times. Later they get more hopeful!


Happy Birthday to You...

The song ends

and I stand

bathed in your light.

My face is marked

by yours

and all my me's cry out,


For I have known,

and have been known.

This is my joy.
