Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Here's what's new:I have been looking through notebook after notebook of poems and notes lately and found a tiny notepad meant to keep in your purse. I bought it last year and ended up writing a few inspired sayings in it after I bought myself a Rumi poetry book for my birthday. I am so inspired by Rumi, and love so many of his poems. I even started a board on Pinterest! I thought for today I would share some of my musings. While these aren't poems, they still evoke a sense of mood and mystery. Rather like the micropoems I have posted and read online, sometimes much can be said with very few words.
I hope you enjoy!
*Do we possess the moment or does the moment possess us? It is up to us to decide.
*Quiet moments offer wisdom a window; do not close it once it has been opened.
*Carry your vision instead of division in your heart. All dreams, all hopes, are valid.
*A question. A look. My answer is already known, because my heart is no different than yours.
*The universe is lavish to those who allow it.
*My greatest wish to be known, to be loved, and to return the favor.
I thank you again for sharing in my love of poetry and words in general. It means a great deal to me. Now off to read and write some more!

I am busy writing poems again. Reading poetry, too. Do you have a favorite poet? I like Rumi.
My plans for this year include submitting to contests and completing another full-length book of
poems. I have been a bit inspired as of late to focus on affirmations and so my next collection of
poems will be themed around that. I am so excited!
I can hardly believe it is almost February already. On that note, I have written a love poem in
anticipation of Valentine's day. Here it is:
I love you to excess-
so they say
but they haven't been in my shoes
haven't felt the pain I have
only to have it all washed away by a smile
a touch, a look, a word.
You saw me and I was seen for the first time
and I knew you, too
Our dreams support each other
moonlight offers sanctuary in your arms;
I think it is fine thing

Hello, and welcome to my poetry world. I am glad you are here! Today I am just enjoying going over previous poems that I have written. I have a few favorites! But, in all seriousness, each poem says something. Something about me. My feelings. My dreams. My life. In putting them together it is kind of like a diary (for me, anyway). A diary or record of my emotions and thoughts. I titled my second book after the poem below. It is a flash record of a particular sort of emotion, a tidal wave of feeling. It means something deeper to me than it appears to on the surface. Personal writing is like that.
I hope you enjoy the poem!
Echoes of Moonlight
I remember your smile
touching my inner love
and I can still hear your voice
saying my name in the echoes of moonlight
that reverberate in my soul;
it is with hunger that I feel your eyes upon me
because all my senses are unfulfilled
I am an empty shell of a woman without you
you know it's true
So I come to you in the way of a child
trusting and earnest
hoping and waiting for a miracle, for transformation
and all it takes is one look in your eyes
for my heart to be yours.

Welcome to my first post of the new year. I am so encouraged by the way things are
starting out. How are things going for you?
One thing that started my year off well is that I have started writing another collection of poetry
that I hope to see turned into my third (!) book of poetry. The title even came to me, as if out of thin
air, in a moment. I might change it, but so far I like what it is: Note to Self; Poetry of Affirmation. It
feels good to be inspired again!
I hope things are starting off wonderful for you and that this year blossoms into something
Below is a current poem. I hope you enjoy!
My dreams are mixed up with my memories
vision blurred of love and loss
time has no meaning but takes me
to where I want to be
which is next to you.
Thank you for making my poetry writing life come true!!
