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

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!
