A TOAST TO THE CURSED ONE


Join us at the East Coast,

where bodies burn to toast.

A vacation that is heavened,

like bread that is unleavened.

Here’s a toast to the cursed one.

Too bad he thinks he has won.

MEET ME IN MAINE


Elizabeth and Scarlett travel to Blue Harbor, Maine, hoping to buy a bed-and-breakfast. On their first evening in the picturesque town, they visit the local ice cream parlor. As the charming owner introduces himself, a man rushes through the doorway, clutching his throat and dying in a pool of blood. 

The Chief of Police questions them. David and Logan, the handsome men they met earlier in the day, join him in the interrogation. Elizabeth regrets agreeing to a date with the dashing, blue-eyed David. She can’t wait to pack her bags and leave Blue Harbor. Scarlett insists they keep their appointment at the quaint bed-and-breakfast. After the tour, she then encourages Elizabeth to sign the papers.

Elizabeth and Scarlett move into the inn and meet the residents. They hear of the curse placed by the Penobscot Indians on the original settlers of Blue Harbor and their descendants. The curse returned that year when an entire block sank into the ground, including the buildings and people. Their fears mount as an intruder breaks into the inn. At Scarlett’s date with Jonathan, the ice cream parlor’s owner, a women’s head explodes at a nearby table. Then a suspicious explosion rocks the harbor, destroying boats and part of the dock. 

Once becoming involved with the town’s descendants, have Elizabeth and Scarlett placed their lives in jeopardy? Should they sell the inn and flee Blue Harbor, or stay and fight the curse alongside David, Logan, and Jonathan?

Book One of THE BLUE HARBOR SERIES will be released on June 11th.

DARE I LOVE HIM?

Who can swim like a fish and fly like a bird?
Who makes my heart thump in my chest?
He is walking toward me,
His body as beautiful as can be.
Do I want him for me?
How can I let this be?

WHAT MIGHT THE FUTURE HOLD?


What might the near future hold?

Buildings of concrete and stone.

We might be traveling by flying cars,

Far above the trees and among the stars.

Sunlight will only be a reflection,

A lighted saber for our protection.

This future might be hard to bear,

A future that might be too near.

PARADISE LOST AND FOUND


A more beautiful place cannot be,

It faces the waves of the dark sea.

White sand and quiet beaches galore,

You can’t ask for anything more.

Life is perfect as can be.

Come and frolic with me.

Tourists visit from far and wide.

Oasis is Florida’s pride.

Beware when The Dead descend.

We can no longer pretend

This is a perfect place to be

As The Dead rise up from the sea.

Darkness brings flying creatures and death.

Beware that this won’t be your last breath.

WASH AWAY MY PAIN


Please wash away my sorrow and pain.
Let it flow down the streets with the rain,
Dissolved in torrents of despair and sadness,
Joining others on its way past the madness.

The ocean may take it far away,
To places, we cannot even say,
Where no one recognizes its sting
Or knows the infliction it can bring.

Let the rain grow harder with its might,
Becoming hail on this fateful night.
I want to be free of all traces
Of unwanted feelings and faces.

My body grows cold from the rain.
I stand clean and free from the pain.
Shivers create a path down my spine
As I wait in the dark woods of pine.

I hold my head high to the wet spray.

It becomes a mist of blue and gray.
The faucet has turned off for the night,
Leaving me feeling clean and all right.

HE STANDS IN HIS PLACE

 

The sun sets.

The animals prepare for the night.

The old elephant stands in his place.

He doesn’t need to move.

He has everything he needs.

He keeps a watchful eye

As he stands in his place.

FILL THE PAGES


Fill the pages with

words and stories.

Fill our lives with

people and events.

Stories to tell our children.

Words to light our journey.

Life is short and precious.

It is our right to fill in the pages.

UNTIL MY DYING BREATH


Will I become one of The Dead?

Walking the nights.

Searching for victims.

Looking for blood.

I refuse to become one.

I will hold onto humanity.

Until my dying breath.

A COLD WITCHES’ BREW

 

A paradise is now lost and gone,

never to be found again.

Whomever the demons come upon,

no more peace but only pain.

Like a cold witches’ brew,

an Oasis for all.

Now a hell for the few

who remain to tell all.
