The Gambler – Author Lyne Beringer

 

With an intensity saved

She finally forgave

Then cashed in her worldly possessions

All the times she’d got burned

Had forced her to learn

The lure of earthly obsessions

Years had passed by

Tears long ago dried

Over youth lost decades ago

She had traveled afar

Carrying scars

To answers she never would know

Approaching the eve

She rolled up her sleeves

Placing her very last bet

And wouldn’t you know

It was the end of the show

A rain check was all she could get

Excerpt from the book “Alaskan Vogue”


BeFunkyPhotoAbout the Author

I never thought the word “writer” would be used to describe me and the thoughts that tumble out of my head onto paper. It’s a new me, giving away words all neatly packaged up in rhyme.

 I have lived in the interior of Alaska off and on for nearly twenty years. Alaska gets in your blood. It lures you in then takes your soul hostage, becoming part of who you are, who you become. Every summer, the days are warm, long, and inviting. Tourists descend in droves, racing toward the next adventure, and a rich, colorful history provides plenty of businesses with trinkets to sell the Alaskan nostalgia.  Anything seems possible when you are standing outside at midnight and the stars are nowhere to be found. That is until winter rolls back around.
