Maneuvering

20170628_162517

In our calling forth of syntax and syllables

we shape and maneuver our poems, as if to say yes,

there is still some hope

even within the burning of our skies,

we push fear aside

and move forward anyway,

embracing the new.

Within My Peace

20180930_130130

When readers come to my site what do they expect to see? Poetry mostly, or maybe a short story, but they are not really looking for political commentary. That’s not the way I designed this site.

And yet I feel things deeply, as many of us do, and much of what we see seems so wrong. How do we stop the madness?

Perhaps as artists and writers we are made internally to feel strongly and observe the insanity, so that we can articulate a response in a creative way.

And yet I hold back, firstly because of what I’ve mentioned. And secondly because I could easily spend all my time caught up in the turmoil of the times we live in.

I need freedom of spirit and mind to spread my writing wings. So I don’t need to solve the world’s problems, and especially not here on this site.

And yet you will on occasion see some lines on how I feel, hopefully in a natural way, usually condemning hate. I do think we should take a stand.

And finally, I am a progressive even though I don’t agree with everything they come up with, and that’s ok. I wasn’t always progressive though.

I think I can give a unique perspective because I’ve been on both sides of the aisle.

Within my peace I strive for a clear vision.

I hope you all feel respected and appreciated here. Thank you for listening.

Peace to you.

Weekender

20180707_164614

Hello! Some of my blogging friends have tried something with their blogs, that I’ve decided to try as well.

Many now blog on the weekends with maybe a stop by during midweek. It was a tough decision but I will be trying the same.

I really need more time for writing, and have so many projects! For too long I have neglected putting some books together, for love poetry, nature poetry, spirit poems, and my novel I so much want to work on!

The downside to not being here as much, is I will not get to read as many of your wonderful posts! You are all wonderful artists, writers, and people!

When I took a break recently, I realized I needed more time like that. I will still be around, just at a reduced level.

I make no money from writing, but it would be so cool if I did!

I will still share the poetry I’ve been known for, and the short pieces of fiction.

Thank you for your understanding! Leave a message here if you’re looking for my email address. 😎

I wish you peace.

Holiday Gifts

tree lights

In my gift wrapping this year, I’m wrapping some very special gifts for you my readers.

Did you know I wrote fiction? Don’t worry I will keep them very short! That’s one mistake we fiction writers can make here on wordpress, making them too long. Lol.

Over the next few days I will share some of the adventure that I’ve written.

There’s the heartwarming story of Henry Vu, who was Vietnamese when he lived on the Earth – yet now he is an angel, that goes around helping people!

Then there is the sci-fi post-apocalyptic adventure called The Last People on Planet Earth. How will they find each other?

And I have some cool stories about Native Americans/First Nations people. One character is named Thunder Speaking.

Intrigued? I thought so.

So kick back, de-stress and have some fun.

And yes I’ll throw some poetry into your holiday stocking.

Peace!!
