As Writers, Why Do We Blog? #nationalpoetryday #5years #blogging #poetry

  Join me for a moment as I reflect on my 1600th post (on this blog alone) and the 5 year mile marker. I’ve come almost full circle on a colorful and interesting ride.   What I’ve learned about blogging as a poet: When I first started blogging, I joined an on-line poetry community. It […]

Celebrate Poets #poetsday #poetry #poets

To poets near and far the images you paint with words and feelings my reason taint minds strive to think hearts to moan on cold nights we shiver alone the words you’ve penned o’er centuries palpate my heart bring to my knees soar high the earth plunge in the deep and with ink drops a promise keep […]

The Chapters of Today #oneshotwednesday

We closed the chapter yesterday you were a whisper away smiling during the dedication catching prism-like reflection a loving and tearful display *** I turned a page in my life today a new script to unfold catching friends bloom ~a glance butterflies in a regal dance many stories yet untold *** There was a book […]

Ode To a Writer #oneshotwednesday

Merciless are the Hands of Time

Peering into the bottom of her glass evoked a smirk it was empty hands of time bent ** Looking into the sky dreams had soared there crashed in a wingless hulk no future for the golden chimes ** Grasping hands perfunctory joy meaningless melted failure life’s promised sands ** captivating laughter floated on the air […]

When YOU’rE Strange … #poem

She opened the door to the inside of his mind unable to shut it for a better look, inside she climbed * Strange shapes, sounds, and colors whirling in a midnight blue mirror reflections made her mind spin unable to find anything to hold on to * She opened her mouth to scream all that […]
