Days 17 & 18 of the Love Write Now Pledge

I’m more a Spring kind of girl, and yet, most of my creative inspiration this week has come from Winter’s beauty. I created a winter wonderland in the draft of my second book, watched documentaries about the Nordic regions, and took pictures of ice crystals on my windshield. I’ve learned to be more present, awareContinue reading “Days 17 & 18 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Day 11 of the Love Write Now Pledge

Every now and again, when in need of a writing boost, I seek out the beauty of nature. Such was the case today! I found a bench near a nearby lake, gazed out on the frozen water, and felt refreshed. I wrote feverishly as seagulls squawked and the crisp wind blew, reminded that beauty existsContinue reading “Day 11 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Motivational Monday Poem: Water Fall

  Nourishing the body Cleansing the soul Water both heals and harms    Washes away sins perceived and actual Unlearned lessons replacing the empty space Melts away the layer of anger and vengeance Oozing from an emerald past unseen   Quenches the thirst for medicinal healing While unwittingly spreading disease Removes a dirtied film WhichContinue reading “Motivational Monday Poem: Water Fall”

Motivational Monday Poem: On a Breeze

The rejuvenation of Spring Kisses the eyelids Pierces the soul Awakens the senses   Nature and Nurture – equal parts home The origin of life and how well we live it Moments pass, noticed or not Renewing, refreshing, and re-energizing   We are part of a whole Connected though holy apart

Motivational Monday Poem: Maternal Earth

Land preserved though not untouched Cared for, valued, and fought over Yet its soul flows through the riverbed, Pulsates in the minerals, And nourishes all it touches   Expansive in sight Overwhelming in beauty Nature known as Mother Nurtures and provides Her maternal instincts as strong as Those whose feet tread upon her   AContinue reading “Motivational Monday Poem: Maternal Earth”

Motivational Monday Poem: Artists’ Sky

Streamers of light Intermixed with color Enhance the natural background  One unnoticed in the rush of morning    As the sun rises And our setting changes A burst of vibrant hues  Enlighten and enrich    Nature’s temporary painting  Will return tomorrow  A unique reflection of daily possibilities

Days 95-97 of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Motivational Monday Poem

HORIZON Lost, scared,   Alone, and unsure enter Hope is on the horizon     Climbing mountains   Scaling walls   Actual or symbolic     Moving forward   Toward destinations unseen   Take resolute steps   Even when your feet only brush the earth.

Day Sixty-One of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Sunday SoulJourn Poem

Day 61: A Beautiful Sight Staring at a blank screen, the cursor teasing me with its incessant blinking. “Come on. Write,” it implores. “As you wish,” I reply. I stare at my not-so-smart phone, and wait eagerly for the light that notifies me of electronic interaction with friends and strangers. I stare at the movieContinue reading “Day Sixty-One of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey: Sunday SoulJourn Poem”
