About This Author
The majority of my writing has a twist (or multiple twists) and much of it is philosophical, mysterious, supernatural, or some combination of the aforementioned. My dream job would be writing for a television series, while simultaneously working on a movie screenplay!

Rainbow of Life
|I went to the shore once the storm passed by,
Dark skies cast a gloom on the day.
A rainbow appeared, God’s sign in the sky,
It ended far out in the bay.
Standing alone on a shoreline of stone,
I stared at the gulls flying free.
No sign of life in this desolate zone -
Just me and the gulls, and the sea.
I wandered the beach, my thoughts sinking low,
As dreary and dark as the day.
My life was a sham, my world filled with woe,
I knelt on the hard rocks to pray.
A roar of thunder I felt to the bone,
A bolt of light flashed from the sky.
I jumped to my feet, no longer alone –
A seagull had landed nearby.
It held in its beak a fish from the sea,
Stood fearless mere yards from my feet.
It lay down the fish and stared straight at me,
Then flew off, its mission complete.
A sign from above that all was not lost,
That hope still exists in my life.
I’d work through my pain, no matter the cost,
And find ways to deal with my strife.
