Favorite Quote:
Writing is a passion from within, you can write about anything that your heart desires and nobody can tell you that it is wrong.

Loving somebody is like giving them a gun and hoping they don't pull the trigger

It’s dawn, at waterside, an auk flew
to a sea rock and landed, by fault, on the back
of a King Eider; the wings flit, amused.
The Eider, too, was not aggravated, however, you might say, was
During midday a fulmar flew over
my house it casually scratching
its stomach of ivory feathers with one
pink foot as it soared.
Oh God, how beautiful your gift is to us, but only
If we look at the sea.

The author's comments:
That sometimes it is the simple things in life that are the most beautiful, however, we just do not take the time to look and appreciate it

& I wanted to be unique with the formatting of this poem so I decided to make it different than just an ordinary poem with normal line breaks
