No star shine
Touch the midnight ghost
See your future revealed
No lanterns glow where you go
You walk the road of broken dreams
Your soul called to a higher purpose
To build a glowing bridge for their return.
This week has been the worst yet.
I am still struggling with the WIP and although the last read through went well, trying to come up with a decent (and rivetting ) blurb/book description has been hitting a wall.
One day in the week, I think it was Wednesday, I found myself actually hating the whole thing and walked out of my office. I spent the rest of the day watching repeats on tv, hated the guilt and feelings of failure that were trying to consume me. Luckily, I woke up the next morning in a much more productive and positive mood, and the project is back on track.
My eyes are presenting a problem that I wasn’t expecting, however and this might be affecting my patience. Which is normally legendary, but has been falling down on the job. My eyesight is improving in leaps and bounds, but having to wear my old reading glasses has become something of a nightmare.
It became so bad, that I was forced to steal a pair of Anita’s reading glasses just to see to read something. Her eyes are nowhere near as bad as mine, which shows how much mine has improved. I have to wait several weeks before I can get new ones and I’m rapidly reaching new levels of annoyance.
Desperately trying to find something more positive (and pleasant) to think about, I found myself watching some water colour trailers on YouTube. This is something I used to do, until writing grabbed me by the throat! I day dream about actually doing some of these crafts this winter, and the idea is doing wonders for my poor tired brain. My WIP has pushed it to the limit this year…
Dark storm clouds growing
Hiding like an evil twin
A powerful force throwing
Anti-matter out into space
A black shroud put the world in mourning
Clouds bubbled boiled caught in a cauldron
Bright luminous skies return new-born days
Kissed by mornings long shining fingers
Hope carried in by sweet birds’ song
ideas grow from summer sun
written under blue skies
red sails on clear seas
gold days that last
friends that stay
This weeks promotion over on MeWe.com with Streets Ahead Book Promotion is for Dorinda Duclos. If you enjoy reading poetry as much we do, you will love this new collection!
In ‘A Journey of Life through Poetry’, Dorinda invites you to join her, as the wonder and awe of the Earth inspires her, bringing her visions to you through her poetry. Experience the setting sun, share in the challenges and victories of life, await the new day, and find yourself lost in the lush forest trees, as you join her on her journey, through Passages and Paths.
“Passages & Paths – A Journey of Life through Poetry,” is filled with the prose and poetry of Dorinda Duclos whose love of nature and of the world of make-believe makes this collection shine.
Nature poetry is my favorite. If an author can make me see the world from their perspective, my poetic reading experience is greatly enhanced. The author accomplishes that and more. Her cadenced prose often rhymes in just the right spot, allowing the reader to sense a more profound meaning by the encounter with the verse.
I found many of these poems were filled with the word images and magic of dragons, fair maidens, and things that have no earthly explanation. I also sensed that this anthology of poems brings the reader closer to the places the author holds dear.
My favorite poem, “The Enchanted Spell,” read like a fairy tale. This poem shares the story of a young woman searching the woods at night for her lost love with the help of her lantern and her owl. The flow of the writing is magical and ethereal. There’s a great twist at the ending, which made this poem a real stunner.
