NOTE: This collection IT WAS THEIR TIME will be posted here. It will include all my stories to date. The transitions, story-to-story, will come from my long 2000 word poem, AND SHE LAY HERSELF DOWN, a 2014 finalist for Canada's Gwendolyn McEwen Poetry Prize .

Transition #1:

And she lay herself down on the bear rug ~ Her blonde hair golden soft

flowing over her shoulders ~ Reaching down her back ~ Where flames… ~

And ~ marbled ~ where he liked to sit ~ in the morning ~ when the sun was up and the dew on the ~ grass ~ in the morning before the birds were up ~

STORY # 7: *This story contains what could be difficult material for you.

And on the water ~ and it was cool ~ and the dew cooled ~ his toes ~ when he walked ~
