New Zealand is my native country.I was born in Christchurch, in the South Island and now reside in the heart of Northland. I live with my husband in a serene valley with her mountain, her trees, her streams, and green fields.I am a quiet reflective person. Poetry is carved deep in my soul and keeps me breathing on a healing journey. My career, nursing has greatly influenced my pen, sharing her rich ink with my past.
I often write dark poetry. However, my muse tends to write itself many times slipping in the shoes and reflecting from the eyes of other people’s lives and their experiences. Therefore much of my poetry is not an accurate account or true depiction of my life. more »

'''In your realm tears will not fall in battleSimone Inez Harriman 23/10/2017
When your heart opens and hearth welcomes
Peace will fly with new wings
And war will be homeless'''
Mourning Gates Of Dawn
The 'Garden of the Gods' is gone
Mother's death sent everything packing
To purgatory with no return address
While my world dropped dead
From lack of sugar
Evening Black Dog whisky
Has swallowed all his sorrow
Home no more is a bronze brazen bull
Basting pain and burning rage
My father roars and bellows
Midnight shadows draw long gallows
Hanging threads of vestigial memories
Of asphyxiated yesterdays
But whisky had loosened the nooses
Father tearfully piggy-backs them back
Sorry limp and lifeless
Mourning gates of dawn
Teeter on ...
