of a sunday

this morning during coffee the clouds became waterfalls

their tops spilling over their huge, fluffy sides in ginormous billows of hellos!

I was absolutely stunned…

God! Why is there no one here with me to witness this? I asked outloud

isn’t that always the way?!!

as if on cue one of the tiny tree frogs that have decided my deck is a groovy place to live started croaking loudly

very loudly

a breeze raced onto my deck laughing

the leaves and flowers I am blessed to live with danced a slow tango

the cottony falls kept flowing down down down

all the way into my coffee

and sooo very deep down into my smiling heart!

Hello Beautiful People of the World!!! I hope this finds You and Yours well!

I am so crazy honoured to say I got published along with a lot of WONDERFUL poets in a new compilation titled ‘Wounds I Healed/The Poetry of Strong Women’.

It’s now available on Amazon and I Just found out we’re #1 in hot new releases! YAY!!!

This lovely exploration of the phases of healing which includes the poetry of both courageous women and a few inspired men is edited by the absolutely brilliant, highly awarded, #1 bestselling Amazon Author and all-round mindblowingly, generously supportive Poetess/writer/professor Gabriela Marie Milton. If You’re not familiar with Gabriela’s completely transportive, otherworldly words, please gift Yourself greatly and check her out at Short Prose Poetry! Time truly stands still in the most spectacular ways when I am inside her thoughts. I get profoundly lost and it’s a magical experience. Also, I have never ceased being amazed at her ability to do all she does and still regularly make her way around blogland strewing love and beyond-kind encouragement! Gabriela is also the publisher of MasticadoresUsa.

This exciting compilation has been published by Experiments in Fiction, a publishing house owned by Ingrid Wilson who is herself a successful poet and writer, nominated for Spillwords Author of the Year 2021. I had the pleasure of listening to Ingrid speak at a talk on this completed work about a week ago. She sounds so lovely! I look forward to getting to know her!

The incredible cover art is by Nick Reeves. It was really interesting to hear him speak of his process and it will be fun getting to know him as well!

We’re having a launch party that will be livestreamed on Youtube, June 18th at 3pm London time for anyone interested! Drop on by!!!

Thank You, Gabriela and Ingrid!!! And Thank YOU beautiful People for being here! Cheers and Huge hugs all around!

on the road again…

took a little roadtrip and hung out with blueberries

in a field overflowing with dragonflies dressed for a masquerade!

grasshoppers were lined up like young men at a ball, watching, waiting in funny clusters

while bees literally wove circles around me telling jokes all the while

the ocean and i shared an afternoon

we melted into one another with unabashed intimacy and i couldn’t stop singing

couldn’t help but dance

as i was packing up 2 egrets stood at the edge of my space, only feet away

they watched my leaving openly as children do

curious and fully absorbed for seconds that lasted hours

i got lost in the stories all the miles whispered

and sweetly found myself rejoicing in knowing that with everything going on in the world

that breaks hearts, spirits, and at times our capacity to trust or truly connect at all

life can’t help but overflow beauty and tremendous Love at every turn…

to kiss us softly in places we didn’t know were there

and set us wide-open back on our refreshed feet

if i could

if i could:

i’d mix these in your pancakes

and pour them in your ears

i’d paste them on your eyes;

use them to wipe your tears

i’d place them as your mirror

so you could clearly see

all the beauty you have been

and all that you will be

springing in 22!

Hello Beautiful People of the World!!! I hope this finds You and Yours well!

Apparently I’m living in my “own private Idaho” and spaced out the Spring Equinox! What?!!! Thank goodness my sweet friends reminded me what time of year it is! SOOOOO….HAPPY SPRING!!!

I wish You and Yours all beautiful things and hearts that sing. That’s right. Spring’s the time for rhyming! 🤣

For those too young to understand my “own private idaho” reference, or anyone who knows but could use a laugh and would love to be compelled to dance Your butt off; check this out:

Cheers and Rock on with Your amazing Selves! 💕

easin’ on down

i must’ve spilled coffee on my map

some wine, tears and sea spray too

i run in circles forward, back

sometimes i run into you

dead ends a plenty and wide open bliss walk peacefully hand in hand

there are thousands of days i’m in grateful joy

and more where i don’t understand

the sun and moon, they dance their waltz

life ebbs and flows nonstop

i’ll ride this trajectory ’til God says i’m done

and this part of my lessons stops

Happy Sunday, Beautiful People!!! My blogging friend, Shashank , suggested a couple of weeks ago that I draw a map of my life….or something like that. So, wonderful Shashank; here it is!!! 😅 Thank You for the suggestion that gifted me confusion, a good laugh and a lot of fun!!! I actually started drawing this on my phone at work one afternoon and then transferred it to my computer/digital art program to finish off. Yay! Huge hugs all around! And I invite You all to check out Shashank‘s blog!!! He’s really smart, has a huge heart and is gifted on so many levels! Cheers and Rock On, All!!!

underneath it all…

moonlight fullbright walkin’ next to you

your eyes look full of fireflies your head’s all full of muse

we laugh we sigh we do a dance

and finally we kiss

ah! wishing so that every night

could hold a bit of this!

in the stream

sometimes we make cookies in the clouds

and laugh so hard, the ocean herself pauses to listen

other times we pass in the street without a trace of recognition between us

something or somewhere….another time and space

but the sky remembers us well

as does the golden wheat swaying in dazzling, liquid sunshine

the stars wink and turn on the oven

somewhere in Africa a near-to-bursting cacao tree begins to giggle
