Welcome to my blog, Spice and Nice! I take time to appreciate the things I do not know and to learn from the things I do. You will find poetry, lots and lots of poetry, recipes, ramblings of my insanity, and the occasional post on the importance of relaxing far, far away from other people.

Some days, I will unfold my thoughts and share my distress, other days, I will write to encourage you to keep going.

I take pride in the words that I put down and wish to be a source of encouragement and odd laughter. I am a huge fan of cooking good food and laughing with lovely people. My poetry and recipes attest to that.

I hope you find inspiration in my words while moving forward.

  • Close

    December 7, 2019 by

    I need you close  Like lovers joined together Wishing the world would let them be  The distance  It kills me inside  Takes away the air I need  My lungs cry  Stifled for the air only you provide  Gasping for your touch  Sweet lover So divine  I need you close  Bring your heart next to mine… Read more

    December 6, 2019 by

    Lately, it seems my anxiety has gotten out of control. There is an overwhelming fear that creeps in each time I try to accomplish a goal or try something new.

    Down the hall and to the left You’ll find a beating heart In case of ice, meant to keep it apart From the one it wants the most You’ll hear it, in the dead of night When the dreams turn to nightmares And when the crying stops It will whisper Of old memories And the… Read more
