Voices of Nature Blog Tour

Stars Above (alouette)

Starry nights shine bright
Thousands of wee lights
Constellations light the sky
Darkness shows contrast
While clouds have gone past
Suspended in time up high

Pisces and Leo
Taurus and Virgo
Constellations light the sky
Sagittarius
Libra, Pegasus
Worlds of tiny lights float by

Poetry gives voice to what the eyes see and the heart hears.

Inspiration exists all around us. Beauty can be found in the laughter of a child or the blooms of a tree. Poems are one person’s interpretation of the world seen through their eyes and felt in their heart. Poetry is soul food – plain and simple.

Voices of Nature is a collection of poems that reflect the inherent splendor of nature all around us. This book utilizes a variety of poetry forms to paint word pictures.

One review said “The sheer variety of styles in this poetry book is amazing. Haiku, triple haiku, acrostic, rondeau, and so many others. Even better is that they explain the poems in the back, which is a great service to the curious reader.

Each poem is clear and paints a perfect picture of nature. Though, I have an odd feeling that both poets were tired of winter since that had the most amount of poems out of the season sections. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I did love the ‘Thunder and Lightning’ acrostic for the imagery and ‘New Day’ for the complicated style and bringing an odd sense of serene closure to the book.

I would highly recommend this poetry book. Even if you’re not into poetry, the pieces for every season will probably have you going ‘I thought the same thing.’

Pamela previously released a collection of love poems titled Dreams of Love with several five star reviews. She has been writing for a short time, but pours her soul into her poetry.

How much longer?

I love this poem by Pam. Check it out, and have a peruse of the many beautiful poems on her blog.

Poetry by Pamela

How much longer must I wait
I’m impatient, you see and my feelings won’t abate

How much longer will it be
To see your eyes light up when me you see

How much longer til I don’t count the days
And you are next to me as our bodies sway

How much longer will go by
Until we can join hands and fly to the sky.

How much longer must I wait
My darling I need you now…don’t be late

Hear ye, Hear ye – No, Really, Hear Me!

Inspired by Pam’s recent post, ‘In Love’, where she also included an audio version of one of her poems, I thought I would like to maybe do that. Since I am not as prolific as Pam, I thought that I would read one of the poems that I have already posted on this blog.

So I am running a competition to decide which poem I shall read out. To see the pool of poems to choose from click here. This is the Ionia category, also accessible at the right hand side of the page. I picked this selection of poetry, since you all know that my world revolves around this woman that is the love of my life, and frankly all of my poetry is dedicated to her anyway. Have a look and see which poem, if any, you would like to hear me read, and then pop back here and let me know in the comments.

After some non-specified duration, basically when I get around to it, I can then tot up the myriad votes, or at least check the one poor lonesome comment, and post an audio version of me reading it. This assumes that I can work out how to do that.

Happy Birthday, Pam

cakeToday is Pam’s birthday.

That makes today a most auspicious day. I wanted a way to wish Pam a happy birthday and to let her know that I hope it is a most special day and that the next year brings her much happiness. So happy birthday, Pam. Here are a few things I learned about having a birthday today (shamelessly stolen from random places on the internet, that I cannot even remember – see, I can admit my penchant for plagiarism).

Being born on the 18th September means that you are a Chief. You are the glue that holds people together, fighting for a common cause. You excel in both work situations and social gatherings.
As a chief you are a good leader and have the ability to inspire others. Crimson red is your power colour and a snowflake your symbol. You are all powerful in the month of September. Your strength of incredible emotional maturity is countered by a weakness that allows you to be worn down by accepting too many responsibilities.

So what  is a birthday?

It marks the anniversary of the day you made your appearance in this world and the start of that incredible journey we call life. It is a celebration of this fact for you and those special people that are a part of your life.

As each new year begins we can look back at the past year, at the new friends we have made, the new relationships and bonds that have been forged, our achievements, our failures. At our last birthday we may not have known some of the people that we now consider integral to our lives, as friends or lovers, or even just as acquaintances. We can also look forward to the new experiences that each additional year brings. Everything changes with time, and that time is marked by our birthdays.

Have an incredible birthday Pam. I hope that today is everything you want.
