Every so often, I like to take time and highlight a friend from WordPress. Today, I’d like to give a shoutout to an exceptionally talented and lovely lady from Arizona, an energetic woman with wonderful wit, dreams, optimism, friendly demeanor and a kind heart.
Michele Lee Sefton
In acknowledgment of gratitude for the enjoyment I’ve received through her creative works, including a friendly exchange of comments, I wrote the following short poem:
Short stories painting pictures Photography on a roll Expressing freedom through dance Her poetry stirs ones soul
I encourage guests to visit Michele’s web site ~ My Inspired Life ~ and follow her creative endeavors, which will entertain, uplift and inspire.
I’d like to offer a special word of thanks to Gabriela Marie Milton. She’s a wonderful poet and I encourage you to visit her site and read her work. She’s also the Editor at MasticadoresUSA, featuring both poetry and short stories, where this morning I had my first poem published. So, stop by for a visit when you can to enjoy this creative web site!
She found her heart one day beneath an old sweater That was lost in the attic of her yesteryear Collecting dust of memories long forgotten She took it back for want of love that she found pure
Across the sea 4000 miles Another heart did beat
In a young man Whose love for her Would make their lives complete
Together they would rule the world Two hearts, one love entwined To share this blessing they have found Heaven on earth, defined
Holding hands in the park sipping wine after dark They were married last spring
Now, they live happily by the ocean in a unique home which he built out of several shipping containers. She’s a thriving romance novelist, writing from her office which opens to a courtyard garden, in the center of their house. Together, they share stories in real time – a day in the lives of two dreamers who took a chance to embrace true love.
Do You Speak Portuguese? I don’t, but I have a friend from Portugal who is an aspiring writer with a Google Translate button in the sidebar – she is Carla Milho.
I encourage you to visit her site and follow her work! She’s an honest, truthful person who writes from the heart with sincerity and passion, following her dreams through engaging, life-experience discussions of ambition and goal-setting, an appeal to self-improvement, cautious tales of deleterious external influences, the value of family and friendships & other points of interest.
