they’ll sing you a song and tell you some jokes

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!

shine in…

word to word in hand and heart

we carry one another in ripples of light that never end

time’s a shore that erases itself with each wave of expression

we tarzan our way through the jungle of us

swinging word to word in hand and heart

this just in! i got published with and by some wonderful people & You’re invited to the launch party on June 18th!!! Yay!

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!

Happy Sunday, Beautiful People of the world!!! I hope You and Yours are well!

Years ago I posted a piece of my art called ‘the welcoming committee’. I deleted it back when I took a break, and it’s since sold, but You can see it here. One of my wonderful blogland friends, Peter, suggested I paint them a peace pipe!!! And…..TAAA DAAAA!!! Finally! It’s here! 🤣 I’ve posted a tiny video below with more detail. THANK YOU for the suggestion, Peter! I’ve had so much fun playing with this!!!

lovely background chimes/music is ‘Drifting on a Cloud’ by Artful Touch

If You like smiling, laughing and breaking into dance now and again, I wildly encourage You to visit Peter at Peter’s Pondering!

Have a WONDERFUL week!!! Huge hugs all around and Cheers!!!

fill me up with sunshine

colours running wild

thin me out with sweet champagne brewed inside your smile

string up hammocks ‘tween wild moonbeams braided through my hair

nestle brightest shafts of love laughingly in there

i’ll do the same for you, my friend

and when this day is through

we’ll dream without our doubts and fears ’til we both wake anew

“You can tell at a glance

what a swell night it is for romance

you can hear dear Mother Nature murmuring low,

“Let yourself go!””

Happy Super, Flower, Blood/Full Moon Eclipse Beautiful People of the world!!! I’ve got my alarm set for late tonight so I can actually go outside and see the eclipse! Very excited!!!

That’s not a bad thing!!! 😅 Speaking of Lovely, below is a youtube video (music only…sigh!) of the beautiful Ella Fitzgerald singing the song for anyone interested! I wish You and Yours SO Much LOVE and Every Single Incredible Anything Your heart/soul desires!!!
