On Gossamer Wings

On Gossamer Wings

On gossamer wings,
On gossamer wings,
My heart it flies to you.
To be together,
‘till the end of days
Is all that’s left to do.

Flying high,
‘cross the ocean blue,
To where it now belongs.
Cradled within,
A soul so true,
Amidst angelic song.

And soon now,
Oh, so very soon,
The body will be along.
To join the heart,
To fill the void,
Back where I belong.

The book is available here and comes in both digital and paperback format.

Book Review: A Poetic Proposal by Julian Froment

Wow. I just found a wonderful review of my poetry collection by Ellespeth. It appears we were in the depths of Texas on a road trip when this was posted and I completely missed it. Thank you so very much, Ellespeth.

Views From A Poet

There’s a wonderful little book of poetry, A Poetic Proposal (by Julian Froment), that was recently published and would be just perfect for romantic Valentine’s Day reading and giving. If you’ve ever experienced a long distance romance and courtship, or know someone who has, this collection will ring true to the frustration of being apart and the anticipation of being together. Dreaming and hoping:

On Gossamer Wings
On gossamer wings,
my heart it flies to you…
And soon now,
Oh, so very soon,
the body shall be along…

In the midst of these poems, exchanged with his love, the poet sneaks this one in:

Poor Poetry
I hope you never get tired,
Of my poor attempts at poetry..

Who could tire of receiving poetry from a lover? Certainly not me!

Julian Froment’s collection is like a genle, though sometimes impatient, dialogue. The words seem written to comfort even those beyond…

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

Pamela Beckford – Poetry by Pamela

Teri Polen – Books and Such

Randall C Willis – CreatedbyRCW

Dominc DiFrancesco – Black and Write

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.

Day 6 of the Poetic Proposal Blog Tour.

Today is the penultimate day of the ‘A Poetic Proposal’ blog tour, and it is my pleasure to give thanks to Marie Ann Bailey for hosting today’s stop.

Marie’s blog is called ‘1WriteWay’ and is a treasure chest of all things book and writing related. She is a self-confessed writer, knitter, and stray cat magnet. Her ‘About 1WriteWay’ page is an example to all of us that either leave the default page, or do the bare minimum. Check it out.

Amongst her other posts and reviews Marie has recently been including chapters from her novel in progress ‘Clemency’. This was a really interesting series of posts made as she worked on the novel for NaNoWriMo, posting the entire novel, although in her own words, with a lot of stuff left out. See the Prologue here.

You should visit Marie’s blog here and say hi.

Thank you so much, Marie, for featuring the ‘Poetic Proposal’ blog tour today, and for your support.
