What the worst blogger on the planet has been up to.


Yes, I freely admit it–I break all the rules of good blogging shamefully. You have witnessed all of my resolutions for reform…and consequent failures. Yet many of you still continue to read my blog and (sometimes) like my stuff and it’s amazing!! Thank you all for not ditching me. Because I thoroughly deserve to be…

Farewell to Dying Gold


Farewell to Dying Gold   She woke suddenly, dew baptized her brow. Where was the blood— what had happened now? Amethyst replaced red as heather, her feather bed, and diamonds gave place to leaves. A forest cathedral the castle’s place took, she gazed about thinking her eyes mistook. Liquid eyes reflected liquid sky— “What happened,…

My Rich Despair


My Rich DespairBlue eyes, blue skirts,scarlet skies, love hurts.Dance away the pain,fair one,only your heartis forever maimed.Talk low, walk slow,starry tear, always fear,when did I hear of hope?I mopenow dusk till dawn.What is a song?Gold dies, silver flies,bronze nights, jeweled heights,what’s it worth to me?I’ll always bea bird in a flowered cage.Elizabeth Baillie

This Midnight


This Midnight   The dark and water meld in cohesive air, carried on a midnight breeze give life to my lair, as I sit in love, alone here, not with a man— but with the moon, stars, air, of this midnight in which I sit and could forever delight. Elizabeth Baillie

Waiting


Waiting, waiting, hope never abating. Even still I wait and hope. Elizabeth Baillie

The Raincoat


The Raincoat   Liquid memories fall all around me, that calming sound which soothes the soul; the skies’ tears, they wash away the dirt of earth and mind, and when I see them I soon find I’m reminded of a tender picture— taken not long ago; not desecrated by paper common or bright ink, but…

The Clasp


The Clasp   Forlornly she eyed the broken gem, that remnant lone of lost pain and love, by tears what could she stand to gain?   The colours sparkled in the sun but dimly blurred by tears which fell like broken rain.   The clasp was broken now, but well did she remember when a…

Job 33:26


I have been trying to keep up with a new resolution lately–mostly with success. “It’s a bit late for a new year’s resolution, Elizabeth…” Yeah, I know. It’s not a new year’s resolution, it’s actually a resolution to conquer pride, which I have been fighting with for years. The resolution that I made to help…

Rainy Day Tears


Rainy Day Tears   Tears are falling from the sky they reflect on my face; brimming over blue, not comforted by time or space.   All around me are clouds; the light is not hidden, but I can’t see the sun— that day-star for my journey way.   The rains are mist, the tears are…

There’s a new Page in town!


Yup! I added a new page to the drop-down on “Poetry”. It’s called “2019 Poetry“, and there you can find all the my most recent poetry. Unfortunately, right now it is only sporting two pitiful little poems, but I hope to add to it very soon. And be sure to check out the new page…

Eras of Crystal


Did you know that I am in the process of writing a novel? Well I am and it’s SUPER EXCITING! It’s also a pain…but never mind that. I am writing it with three other authors (one of whom is my sister), and it is called Eras of Crystal. Yes…I’m about to plug it. But I’m…
