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 Victorian house where I live. and I often feel out of place in this world.

I would describe my poetry as deep, dark and sad, but I can write happy if the mood hits me ~~

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

Elegy Contest


Blog Posted:12/3/2013 8:34:00 AM
Thank you to all who entered my contest, the poems received were all very emotional and beautifully written, it was a tearful journey reading them, sadly many did not follow the contest rules and could not be considered for this contest but this does not diminish their beauty.  Because of the heart wrenching and emotional theme I had no option but to give each poem following the rules first place, I had no other option...

Love Constance

    Hi Broken Wings, I was just wondering, like John before me, if/when you might be posting the results for your "Monoku Form or Free Verse" poetry contest. We'd love to see what came out of it! Thanks.
