The Afternoon Blaze
The sky was aflame with towering clouds of fire
Its warnings appeared to be a poetic, sunlit pyre
Red and orange against billowing whites and grays
Creating the late afternoon’s most dazzling blaze

Signposts and Cliffs

Some days I’m hard pressed to see hope or joy
I run tirelessly toward a goal only to discover it’s a decoy
Trusted signposts and markers have only led to the edge of a cliff
The things I once thought were solid are filled with cracks and a rift
Can anything be trusted or is it all just a ruthless, cruel sham
Where the lambs are led to the slaughter and no one really gives a damn

Gregory believes a promise should never be broken. At the age of twelve he promises to wait on four year old Mary Elizabeth. While everyone else believes it was just a sweet exchange between two children, Gregory never forgets his promise of marriage.

Even though Mary Elizabeth doesn’t believe in fairy tales, she does believe in Gregory. While her parents continue to insist he won’t keep his promise, she knows he will. Years before, her young heart recognized the person it belonged to. But just when she believes her perfect future is about to come true, a spiteful adversary causes her to doubt Gregory’s sincerity. Now the future doesn’t seem quite so bright or certain.

Gregory and Mary Elizabeth will have to overcome many obstacles in order to stop waiting and to finally begin living and loving.

A collection of poetry-
“The Blank Page”
The blank page seduces and whispers my name
Knights, killers and lovers wait without shame
Eager for their moment at the next written quest
Where worlds will be formed and destinies wrest
Words spill forth and the exhilarating game is on
Battles are staged and fictional lines are drawn
After all of their performances have been cunningly played
Worlds will have been molded and new characters conveyed

The Timeless Race
I fly on velvety wings and balmy wind
As fingers with purpose caress my skin
I forget to breathe and slip through time and space
As my heart joins yours in life’s timeless race

Seth Black is Nashville’s next-big-thing in country music. Unfortunately, the road to fame is fraught with temptation and danger. At every turn, Seth has to fight off beautiful women, whilst at the same time struggling to make the Black family name something to be proud of again. It would be easy to fall into the same kind of trap that had snared his once famous father, Montgomery Black. Seth, though, wants more from his life than drugs, alcohol and womanizing. While he did inherit his deceased father’s great singing voice and stage presence, Seth absolutely refuses to fall into the same rowdy lifestyle that ultimately destroyed his father, and their family. His biggest dream is to have the type of home life he never had when growing up, but the life of a country music star means he’ll have to be extra careful.
