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.

Wish Fishing

Soup is on the go
laundry is swishin'
time to vacuume
then it's dish fishin'

Hang the clothes
on the line
then later
if I have time

I'll get out in the sun
to run paved ribbons
with grateful smile
for all things given
