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.

Mosaic Tiles

Mists swirl about my head
As I try to figure this confusion
Living my inner conflict
Reveals more then I wish to look upon

Questions fester
Bringing new light to topics
Concealed within desolate depths
Alien and secret

I wonder what answers will arise
As more of the skeleton is discovered
Each piece one more of the puzzle
That threatens to drown

I have a feeling that the submergence
Would only be temporary
As I begin to grasp the importance
Of these mosaic tiles

Where they fit within the image given
Why each is exposed
And what significance each represents
I am an introspective bewilder

In pursuit of truth
In search of enlightenment
Requesting illumination
So that I may once again be comfortable
Within my skin
