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~~

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.
