I am 53 and married. I have no children of my own because of fertility issues. I do, however, have a great step-daughter and 3 grandchildren, whom I love dearly. I recently have had medical issues that have caused me to rethink my work environment and chose to return to school to help with my husband's business. I took a creative writing class because I was recommended by a Professor. I have enjoyed the class so much that I have recently started writing and hoping that I can make some one else happy or in awe with my poetry, short stories, and maybe, one day, a book of my wild and crazy life.

Lady in Christmas Red

As I stand outside smoking a late night cigarette I glance at the neighbors house I see a Shadowy figure My eyes adjust with the night light It is a lady in Christmas red A dress of red with white fluffy trim Just standing at the door As if to be ...

This was a dark time in my life. I knew of this guy through high school. His dad was a security officer and there was nothing that I could do, so I thought. What could be done?

My neighbor was surprised about the lady in red. She said her mother would dress for Christmas in red and white. It was actually around Christmas time when this was seen. She is a 73 year old lady that does believe that things exists and will tell me of things that has happened here in the holler of Tennessee, especially, the war ghostly appearances. Hope you all enjoy my life experiences. On to the next. Victoria L.

I live on land that was once fought on. Civil War was fought here in December 14, 1863, in Bean Station, TN. I will tell many a poems with the experiences that I have had in my poetry. Hope this is a good start.
