I  am a writer, a poet. I love  Renaissance art, classical music, nature, meditation, dreaming.  I collect old books, vintage clothing and jewelry  I seem to like anything old,  I adore the old house Victorian house where I live. and I often feel out of place in this world.

I would describe my poetry as dark and sad, but I can write happy for contests or if the mood hits me, but my style of writing is definitely  deep, dark and sad~~

"Everything is possible for he that believes" Mark 9:23

I have been writing since I was a child,in an attic room, I wrote my first poems, my Grandmother was my muse and mentor.  And  now, I write of my journey in this life, the path, and all the twists and turns, along the way. I write of death, sadness, happiness, of nature and faith. 

I write the poem, I paint a picture with words, I am a storyteller, I am a voice for the spirit of my "People" of the First Nation~~

Contest and Thanks


Blog Posted:2/24/2012 11:20:00 AM

First, I want to thank all poets who wrote poems dedicated to me, they really touched my heart deeply, I miss you also.  And thanks to all who left me comments, sent emails, and Christmas cards.  My journey has been amazing.

Now,  the results of The Passionate Reader can be seen.  With the help of a friend, I was able to get this finally done. 

Thanks to all who entered and supported the contest.  All the poems were very good.  The contest asked for the given quote be used as an intro to your poem.  Many did not do this and so those poems were not considered in the judging but were still good poems.  Others were good poems but had nothing to do with the contest, so also could not be considered.

For those who won, congratulations

As for me coming back to the soup, that is questionable at this moment, due to my deteriorating eyesight problems.  I tell people, laughing, I always wanted a dog, I just never imagined it would be a seeing eye dog but in reality, I am crying on the inside.

Anyways, sadness aside, miracles do happen, so who knows, maybe my journey will just be different . . .

Love Always

    Hi Constance I do not know you or your history, all can say is well done you are still here on the soup at the moment, people here know you and your work and from what I have seen on the soup there are a lot of people with a lot of problems and they find comfort in sharing with each other there are no cures offered just support and I beg you to try and draw from it it is offered freely and with love and iIhope you can take the strength offered to you by these openly souportive(not a spelling mistake) members xx

    Hi Constance ... I have been wondering about you. I was not aware of your challenges - I will pray that you are given the strength to endure and recover. I simply thought you tired of the shenenigans that sometimes go on here. It has been clear to me ever since I first became aware of your beauty that you see with far more than just your eyes - best of luck in dealing with your situation. Joe

    Constance, good to see you drop by the Soup. I am sorry about your eyesight problems. Doh! And on my latest comment, I said, "Long time no see!" Awkward. Have you looked into surgery at all? I hope things turn out for the better!

    This is sad thing to hear, Constance..You know the old adage that when one sense is dulled, another is sharpened?...your poetic eye is even better than before. Your posting today is amazing. Your words so graceful!! Gwendolen
