Shoutout For A Friend

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.

First Poem Published

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!


Two Hearts

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.

Dreaming At High Tide

Beach Comber

Water rolls in with the moon at high tide, as stars flicker behind a curtain of space.

I can sleep through this dream until morning, then collect seashells and treasures of ships sunken centuries ago.

The beach is my tomorrow. The moonlight, a distraction.

An Aspiring Writer

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.
