I can not boast of accolades or reasons why I should be known. But if my words were footprints
in the sand of an empty beach, then perhaps the testimony of their true impact on our world would be;
how well those simple impressions merge with life, nature and the hearts of those who followed.
We still have empty beaches in New Zealand. As a writer/poet they provide great space in which
to be positively inspired by beauty, wonderment and ever present anticipation of finding an
unknown footprint fused in sands of time yet crying out, "I just want to do what I want to do... Don't you?"
I feel both proud and humble to have been given the opportunity to share the pages of Muse-Pie Press with so many talented local and international poets. My previously published works can be read at http://pearldiver.website after the site is launched on November 14th 2015.

Let me share the treasures I have
Those found on empty beaches
and in barren wild places
others dare not walk
Feel that golden ambience
of life as it envelops,
wraps around each word
borne in one's sunset wave
Let me share those wondrous things
you can not initially imagine
for so sublime are they
Yet all are so natural
in the past of tomorrow's world
As were those unfuzzy lateral
dreams of yesterday
when I too, was brave...
