I'm an aspiring novelist with a passion for free verse and epic fantasy (and occasionally being over-dramatic).

There is always hope.

"I certainly have not the talent which some people possess," said Darcy, "of conversing easily with those I have never seen before." (Jane Austen)

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost." (J.R.R. Tolkien)

"Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon." (A.A. Milne)

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)


If you're here looking for something to read, some of my favorites are "Ten Wishes--A Poem", "Light", and "A Possibility". :)

A City

December 24, 2017

PROMPT: Intersection

a teeming mass of concrete, grayness, steel
and glass and fluorescence; they say
that Mother Nature has forsaken this place,
the City

I know better

the polluted sea may be just that but
it still rolls along in waves, driven
by the wind that carries gritty sand
into my face

Nature breathes

the sky is gray but still the sky, still
full of clouds, and somewhere beyond those,
there's still sunshine; and down here, we have
the wind

Nature smiles

it may be a City, but there, see, there's a tree,
an evergreen, waving its branches and swaying,
gently, showing that Nature can still be found--
even here
