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.

Rock Face

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

          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
suddenly bold
is born…

  1. Your poem captures concentration and will power required for rock face climbing (says this arm chair climber) - some great lines.
