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.

Tiger Tabby


Tired Tiger Tabby
meets with
motor running

Shrill staccato-meow
Scold 

Reminding me those
chores
forgotten

Shack Shadows

Rock Face


Smooth, cold hand-hold
unforgiving
          and yet,
a life rest
for weary traveler

up
   up
     up
          into air and space

Ribbons of colored
seams and streams
seem daunting

experience calls confidence
wills them to dance,
to mingle
with every step
and every glance

puzzled pieces
slip-fit
and
suddenly bold
is born…
