They can pronounce our stories, comfort and burrow.

No time for silent pens, it's...Read More

With little but despair upon one's mind,
Remembrances of those who have been kind
May yet from depths of misery arise.

Shantelle Alone
Let’s have a shandy,
With shantelle.
Why???
Because she is rock, our stone,
In the mist of adversity,
She stands strong,
On her own.
She stands for those who have NO backbone,
She is a rock,
She is a stone.
To Shantelle,
We know welly.
Alone, she stands!

that stalks and lurks in lore.
Never cowering in a cave,
ready to rise from the deep seas
or from mountains poised to pounce,
in the clouds, in every breath.
