    I spent 15 years writing novels. I can't seem to keep a focus long enough to do that anymore. So I've turned to poetry. Here's just a tiny sample . . .
    The Fire Inside

    THE FIRE INSIDE

    Watching the boil of the fireplace
    Warm and reassuring in its dance
    The wine, newly opened, beside us
    Lift your glass and taste its fragrance

    The wind is wild, hear the trees scrape the windows
    The rain like a cascade falls
    Inside, hear the music, Pachabel’s Canon in D
    Fills our hearts and fills the halls

    The dog sleeps softly in her bed by the door
    The only awakened eyes are our own
    The wonders of your body peek through your gown
    Still intriguing though for years I’ve known

    The secrets and sensations that make you why
    My desires and fantasies run hot
    Such that not having what the world holds sexy is less
    Than the majesty of the one I have got

    The bedroom upstairs is but a minute away
    But here on this rug let us lie
    And listen to the storm, taste the wine, hear the song
    For I see the fire in your eye
