Celebrating our Muses

I’ve mentioned my Missing Muse and lack of inspiration to write lately. The topics of muses and lack of creative motivation are routine challenges for writers across our community. The pandemic, isolation, political, and economic challenges have touched our lives and many a muse is missing or at least in serious remission. I’ve written about…

Earth Care for Mother’s Day

Earth Care for Mother’s Day I’ve had this post ready for a while, intending to go back and flesh out more solutions. Instead, I decided to publish it as a tribute for Mother’s Day. Earth is in fact the mother that feeds and supports us all in living on this beautiful planet. It would be…

Musing for Moka

  Musing for Moka¬† Thanks to Diana for the nudge to go looking for my missing muse. She and her muse have a tortuous relationship, which apparently works well for both of them. Her mercenary muse is a foul smelling hunk with serious control issues. May your relationship be long and ornery! If you want…

I’m choosing the path of love and cooperation. How about you? Thanks for reading and being part of our community. I appreciate you. Spring in the…

Recrafting our World

Recrafting our World It’s impossible to avoid the news and impact of coronavirus. I’ve progressed from denial to concern, to acceptance and opening to new ideas. I’ve been sick for the last few days wondering if I have the virus, flu, a cold, allergies, or am simply run down. I’m considering whether to go to…

Dream Dancer, haiku

Cosmic Dancer

Cosmic Dancer ~ man meets a woman¬† cosmic energy in flux the dance of lovers ~ an elegant dance the universe in motion cosmic flames ignite ~ These are my first two haikus inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s beautiful painting. I found it on Freya Pickard’s Pure Haiku poetry website as part of her latest…

winter, wonder, climate

Winter Wonders

Winter Wonders ~ a snowy winter carpet lightly dusting the earth quiet fills the day with a veil of beauty nature’s wonder ~ Sadly, we haven’t had more than a dusting in 10 years. Clearly, the climate is changing and many of us can’t help but wonder if nature can handle the changes we have…

A Strange New World
