I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. That breaks my heart, bless him 😇

  2. Mark, you are the master of the plot twist. I have come to anticipate it, but it always arrives with a sharp intake of my breath. Oh! When it feels like tragedy (which it often does), the lesson is hard to swallow. But it is there nonetheless.

  3. awesome story………so many times we are sent those who can help but we turn them away without a thought.

  4. Sad to say, Mark, but we in the USA are no different from Mr. Oakley in not taking action in the face of a global climate emergency.

  5. What a heartbreaking story.

  6. Love your short stories. So succinct and concise, yet the resonance is carried far and beyond after reading.

  7. Awww. Man. Heartbreaking but beautifully written. That last image will stay with me. 💙

  8. The danger of blindly believe… great short story, dear Mark.

  9. Fantastic article, it had everything that any reader desires, emotion and ability to step into the story!

  10. Oh how sad! Mother Nature can be cruel when she wants to be, especially when she crushes our dreams. I’m sure his wasn’t the only story like that! Thanks for bringing it to light.

  11. Such a touching story and what a way to pass.
