Once upon a time


The picture of a kitchen hung on the wall.

“What a perfect looking kitchen. Nothing out of place,” said their guest.

Katherine remembered the previous day’s mess.

“Once upon a time,” she sighed.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
