When I Wake

When I wake,
By your side,
My heart and soul,
No more to hide

Just one look,
Into your eyes,
I wish again,
No more goodbyes

When I kiss,
Your perfect lips,
My heart it leaps,
And totally flips

I brush my hand,
Across your hair,
I’ve never seen,
A maid so fair

My heart it beats,
A mighty tattoo,
Every one,
Just for you

Just to spend,
Each day with you,
By your side,
My love so true.

I’ll Change My Flag

Chain

 

 

 

 

 

Alone again,
On this desolate isle.
Trapped in a chain,
No desire to smile.

Dreaming of then,
When together we were.
Dreaming of then,
When together we’ll be.

Thoughts of us,
Lift my heart.
Thoughts of us,
Never apart.

Days will pass,
Night times too.
No need to ask,
I’ll come back to you.

Time it does drag,
Until that day.
I’ll change my flag,
When we find a way.

I love you, Ionia.

Channeling Harrison by David Young

channeling HarrisonDescription from Goodreads

This book is a true account of the ongoing and mind-blowing experiences between David Young, a multi-talented musician/producer artist, and former Beatle George Harrison. What David Young, who plays two flutes at one time and has sold over a million CDs, has documented is verifiable, real, and astounding. Every time he questioned his direction, he was (is) guided by one of the most loved, respected, and spiritual musicians of all time. The story abounds with seemingly impossible synchronicities, lined up one after the other in perfect time, all of them helping him to rise above his life s challenges, and not only evolve as a musician, but as a spiritual being as well. George entered David s life during a time of devastating heartbreak. This intervention was just the beginning of over forty incredible experiences. George s musical genius began to channel through David s own music. After recording forty instrumental CDs, David spontaneously wrote and recorded twenty-five vocal songs in thirty days! Songs with depth and rich production values like the Beatles, in a rock-with-soul style he had never done before. What is George trying to communicate, and why has he chosen David? This incredible story proves there is life after death or better yet, life after life.

The book comes with a free download of three of these songs as well as three spiritual instrumental tracks.”

Four stars out of five

As a longtime fan of George Harrison I was very interested in reading this book and learning of the author’s experiences.

I liked the way in which this book was written and structured. The format made it an easy book to read and the topic was extremely absorbing.

This book was an account of the author’s personal life experiences, and in particular how he related these moments in his life to his spiritual connection with former Beatle Harrison. I especially liked hearing how Mr Young continually experienced these episodes of concurrence.

The author presented an interesting life story, even without the association with Harrison. The obvious spirituality of the author was apparent throughout.

This book will appeal to many diverse readers, in particular those with an interest in George Harrison, or with an interest in matters of a deeply spiritual nature. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read.

This review was based on a complimentary copy of the book.

Interesting post. Well worth checking out.

Freelance writer and blogger, Yohana Petrovic contacted me with an idea for a post describing four tools that can help you become a better writer. Enjoy!

The best free tools to improve your writing skills!

The art of writing is a combination of language, technical skills and creativity. The language and technical aspects of your writing include elements such as grammar and proofreading. However, grammar is an area from which you can learn every day. The command over grammar is like the electricity powering your computer: you will need that power every day to create polished content.

The creativity aspect of your writing includes the major element, which is your uniqueness – ‘your style of writing’. Hence, there are categories such as fiction writer, resume writer, copywriter, content writer and so on.

If you have just begun your writing career, then give it a minimum of 3-6 months to understand…

A Thank You

I would just like to extend my thanks once again to everyone that took part in last weeks ‘A Poetic Proposal’ Blog Tour. Your help was much appreciated. A reminder to everyone who the fantastic bloggers that took part were:

Charles E Yallowitz – Legends of Windemere

Marie Ann Bailey – 1WriteWay

John Howell – Fiction Favorites

Once again, thank you all so very much. If you haven’t visited these blogs yet then I strongly recommend that you do so.

And so, after the excitement of last weeks blog tour I find myself in somewhat of a blogging quandary. What do I write about now?

Final Day of the Poetic Proposal Blog Tour.

Today’s expression of heartfelt gratitude for hosting the grand finale of the ‘A Poetic Proposal’ blog tour goes out to John Howell.

What can I say about this man. I absolutely love his sense of humour and writing style. He has been ever present in his support, both personally, and with regard to my poetry.

John’s blog is known as ‘Fiction Favorites’ (nearly gave it a UK spelling there, sorry John. I think we’re good now). In addition to posts about his novel writing his blog includes regular weekly features such as ‘Wednesday Story day – Hump Day’, Friday’s ‘TGIF Johnku’, and ‘Stream of Consciousness Saturday’. He is the author of a fiction thriller MyGRL. Check it out, along with news of his other ‘Published Work’.

John has been the ‘Spotlight Author’ of the week this last week for the #RaveReviewsBookClub (#RRBC), during which his many interesting posts, including ‘Question and Answers’ and ‘Interviews’ have appeared all over the blogosphere. See his introductory post here.

Fiction Favorites‘ is definitely one of my favourites, and that’s not fiction. It is not a site you want to miss. Get over there now!

Thank you again for hosting the grand finale of the ‘Poetic Proposal’ blog tour today, John, for your constant support, and especially for your awesome sense of humour.
