According to famed poet W.H. Auden, â€œA poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.â€
Tracie Skarbo first began writing as a child. â€œI can remember sitting at my small desk, with a blue toy typewriter bringing stories into fruition. I would be hunting and pecking away at the keys in my room, while dreaming the â€˜big dreamâ€™ of eventually seeing my words in print.â€
Her dream is now a reality. Harmonious Flight is Skarboâ€™s first book. This brilliant compilation of personal poems shares her thoughts on interactions with nature, human behavior, personal experiences, and life.
About the Author
Tracie Skarbo was motivated to write by her father, who was her biggest supporter. â€œHe 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.â€ Skarbo was raised on Vancouver Island and is working on her next two books.
