About Me

My photo

Tracie Skarbo was motivated to write by her father, who was her biggest supporter. “He was always behind me, rallying me on with my writing. I would always see him with a book in hand. He gave me a great appreciation for the written word, and the power and responsibility that writers have to shape those who read their words. He also taught me to respect nature and to value the beauty within it; my reflections on my environment are just an extension of this.” Skarbo was raised on Vancouver Island and is working on her next two books.

It's All About Timing

Everything wonderful in life
Is all about timing

The way a special person
Will come onto your path
Not when you are full of want of them
But when you are most ready to
Receive the relationship

Those moments of lingering
Before a first kiss
While you look into the eyes
Of the other
Reaching deeper shades of desire

The way friendship grows deeper
As years pass
Delving further into
Understanding
And growth

Those moments when across
A crowded room
You find a pair of eyes
And you hold on to the electric connection
Between the two of you

The way a fetus must
Reach maturity before leaving
The protection of the womb
Before bestowing its voice
To the world

Those moments when instead
Of fighting for control
You learn to let go
Until you learn to do nothing
While leaving nothing undone.
