About coribeth

I was born in Brantford, Ontario, Canada and began writing at a young age and had my first books published in 2003 when I was in my twenties. They were poetry books entitled Touchstone Sword and Touchstone Sword II using the pen name Orchid Wren Cone. I soon went on to write such books as The Adventures of Flame Gurl series which is about a great new superhero living in Canadaville and Unchain which is about one girl’s struggle to release her spiritual burdens. I have also been taking photographs since I was very young, starting off with one of those cameras that has a cube flash that rotates and also has the long 110 film. Digital photography is more my pace now. Growing up in a Christian household, I became a born again Christian when I was just eleven years old. My faith in Jesus Christ is shown through out my works and I pray that not only will you be entertained by them, but you’ll come to know Christ and be uplifted by them. My favourite scriptures are Amos 8:11 and Psalm 81:7.

Red Sea Faith

Red Sea Faith

Waters will
never
—-part until
your
—-feet get
wet.

What’s stopping
you from
dipping your
toe in?

What’s stopping
you from
taking a leap
of faith?

Cast you
staff in
—-and
——–trust.

Silent Storm

When I was younger, I was terrified of thunder storms. The flash of lightning then the loud bang of thunder that was sure to follow terrified me. Until one day God said to me that He was in control of the storm, so what what was I so afraid of? That comforted me, and now I think of thunder storms as a metaphor of God’s way of speaking to us.

Silent Storm

Silent storm,
rain on me –
wash away
my fear
and doubt.

Pour your
cleansing rain
over me.

Your rolling
thunder
a pleasant sound –
A comforting,
still, small voice.
A calming,
still, small voice.

Silent storm,
rain on me –
wash me
and make
me new.

Pour your
cleansing rain
over me.

Your rolling
thunder
a welcome sound –
It comforts
my inmost soul.
It calms
my inmost soul.

Silent storm
rain on me.

Snowball Fight

Snowball Fight

Fresh snow of the Winter,
All see and delight;
You sparkle with beauty.
Let’s start a snowball fight!

Sailing through the air
With ease and with abandon.
Tossing one more,
The snowball hits it’s intended.

Ducking and dodging,
Throwing with grace.
This snowball fight is fun
Until one hits my face!

Grandma’s and Guns

When going through some old photos, I found the strangest thing… a photograph of my great-grandmother… with a gun! This was probably on the farm that she lived on, and of course, this would have been the norm for her back then. But still, the sight of this photo was shocking! (-:

Whisper

Listen for the Lord’s whisper…

Whisper

Sincerely,
Hoping,
Listening
To hear
Your Voice –
Your soft,
Quiet Voice –
In the distance…
In my spirit.
I am still.
You whisper.

Wallpaper or Paint

Do you ever notice how some words sound alike in the English language? Or how changing only a few letters around make an entirely different word? No wonder it’s so hard to learn!

Wallpaper or Paint

Decorate the
decor
with the decorum
of a decorated decorator’s
decorating taste.

But please
consult with a
consultant before
your consolidate
anything at the
consulate.

For you see,
if you decorate
the consulate
with the decorum
of a decorated decorator –
you might have to
consolidate your
contradicting decorating
tastes.
