Hi Everyone,

This is Charlene.   When I was growing up, I used to write poems as a hobby.  But when life got busy through school and other changes that come with growing up, I put poetry on the back burner.  Although I’m not quite ready to share the full meaning behind the poem, I will tell you that an upcoming change in our life has inspired me to start writing again.  It feels that this poem almost wrote itself as I started thinking of verses that would work well together.  I hope this will be just one of many poems that I will write and share in the future.  I am also planning on dusting off my old scrapbooks which contain some of my old poems and sharing those as well.  I hope you enjoy reading these poems and that they bring some inspiration into your life!

My poems can be found at

Aurora: War – Paperback

Aurora: War is now available in paper back. I published the book in paperback a few weeks ago. I was just waiting for the retailers to update their sites. The whole process seemed much faster this time around. I think it helps that I have gone through the process before. Below are the links where the paperback version is currently available.
