Still Filled with the Wind

That injured wing, still filled with the wind and lifted her,

even with pain and dried blood she was carried

soaring into the clouds, aiming for the sun

not exactly refreshed but it was working

both wings were part of her now

looking down, she refused

any sense

of despair.

Blogging Update: December

As autumn fades we are hopeful. The holidays are around the corner and decorations in and on our houses are beginning to appear. We hope the winter will be beautiful, and that the coming year will be a better one.

I hope you have enjoyed a few new photographs on my site. My favorites are on “Autumn by the Lake” and “In Our Moonlight”. I continue to work on making room here and deleting old work.

Several of you unfortunately did not receive replies from me regarding your messages. Yes, the infamous WordPress Spam Monster has struck again. This applies to not only newer readers but readers that have been here for years, making comments! What?? Give me a few days and I will reply.

If you have noticed your readership being down don’t worry about it! Continue doing what you do, with being a good neighbor and visiting other sites. Your posts are excellent!

Social media is not the future, it is now. So what if readers are on Instagram and Tweeter instead of WordPress? In fact, you can use social media to enhance your blogging here. Go for it!

I’m not sure yet how much I will be here for the holidays, but I will be here. I have a ton of cool books to read! My genre? Fantasy/Sci-fi/Paranormal. Ever heard of The Rook?

Thank you so much for reading!

Peace.

Courageous Light

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

Edith Wharton

Who do you know that needs some encouragement today? You can be the light or reflect it!

I’m sure there’s someone that needs your kind words, your peace, your light. Be courageous today and spread some of your light.

Wishing you peace.

In the New Day of the Forest

Somehow it was the light through the leaves that caught my attention, I paused…..realizing I could hope again,

I closed my eyes and at first a prayer took shape, and then my wordflow began to be born again.

A poem spun, dancing in the sunlight as I stood amazed,

in the new day of the forest….
