It is titled Sing to me of words , and it is not only my first book of poetry, it is my first book. I self-published it while still working full-time. It is a book of devotional-style poems. Uplifting and soul-searching.  if you like spiritual poetry, then try my poems! I am to inspire with my words. Check out a gift from my  heart. Poetry is meant to touch the soul!

I will keep you posted! Acceptance A quiet acceptance I do not want to fight any  longer; when the rages wash over me I am brought to the reality of my knees touching the earth. Acceptance gives me peace cools the embers of the flames that consume me and enables me to stage my rising. Quiet Slowly a quiet inspiration grows blossoms into the rarest of flowers in the garden of my heart where my dream resides Thanks for enjoying a moment of poetry with me. I plan to gather some reading inspiration at the library soon. What do you read for inspiration?
