"Blessed is the person who has the talent to be a singer, artist, or writer.  
But they must have an audience for their talents to be appreciated.  
Blessed is the person who can be their audience."

I have a friend who is a writer of words.  
Carole's dream of being a published author has finally been realized with two of her poems being featured in volumes recently released by the International Library of Poetry.  

Carole is a cut above the rest.  
She can write poetry, songs and stories "at the drop of a hat".  Give her a word, phrase or a thought and the words just seem to flow out of her.  These pages are for my "Proud Canadian" friend and my way of saying......

"Thank you Carole for giving me 
such pleasure with your words".

Meet The Poet

"The poet's soul becomes the very heart of the poetry he/she creates.  I write in an effort to show in words how I feel about my life and those I love.  I live in a world of words, for only with pen in hand can I express my emotions and my thoughts.  This is my life and my joy!

I have always thought that my Canadian heritage, added to growing up in the State of Maine, has given me some insight into the beauty of all that surrounds me as well as an appreciation of the simple things in life.  I consider love and friendship just as important as food and drink and I try to bring all these things into my World of Words.  We all use words to convey emotions such as love, friendship, beauty and simplicity, and if my words help bring these things to those that read them, then I shall humbly call myself a poet...."

God Bless America
I light this candle in memory of the people who have lost
their lives in the terrorist attacks and to honor the men and
women of the Armed Forces, the Fire, Police and EMS
who put their lives on the line to protect us and keep us safe.
