New Owner Required: Inquire Within
Step up, step up, do I hear a bid?
A new owner is required.
Good value at twice it’s valued price,
Before hosting expires.
The Creative exiles has a name
For quality and style,
So raise your hand and make a bid,
It will make the members smile.
Ralph has pressing matters
That he must give his time.
My only claim to expertise
Is how to make words rhyme.
So, someone with tech-savvy
Is needed for the task.
I promise that you’ll get our help,
You need nor even ask.
Phyllis our editor in chief,
At that, she sure excels,
While Tony keeps the site afloat,
By his output, you can tell.
So, all we need is an owner,
A new host for the site,
With a vision for the future
To reach even greater heights.

After a lot of procrastinating I have finally self-published my first eBooks of poetry "I Laughed a Smile" and "On the Wings of Eagles" at Lulu.com.Now I find myself branching out and experimenting with short fiction.
I have also been fortunate to have two poems chosen to be made into songs and recorded. The first "On the Road to Kingdom Come" by Al Wordlaw, and the second, "If I Could Write a Love Poem" by award-winning Israeli/British singer Tally Koren.
I am also finding my services increasingly in demand as a freelance writer and I have ghost-written the text for a number of children's books and educational tutorials.
It has taken me many years of searching and restlessness to realise that my life's passion is to write. It saddens me that I wasted so many years not devoting to that, but thinking positively, the experiences gained over those years is now wonderful material for my stories and poems.
I want to try to bring a new focus on poetry and try to make it appealing to a new generation of young people and those who thought they never liked or understood it before.
