Interview with Victoria Onofrei, Bloomsbury Radio, London; and, lavender petals

I was elated last month when Victoria Onofrei of Bloomsbury Radio sent me a message inviting me to an interview on her radio show. The interview was conducted a couple of weeks ago via Zoom. Victoria is a lovely host, and a delightful conversationalist. It was great fun.

In the interview we talk about #1 Amazon New Release Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, #1 Amazon Bestseller Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women, both published by Experiments in Fiction, my writing process, music, love, life, and much more.

The interview will air tomorrow, Sunday 9/25 at 6 pm BST, and 10 am PT USA.

You can access Bloomsbury Radio here.

I would be honored if you would tune in, thank you!


lavender petals

dreams
made out of lavender
and crushed rose petals

entice the tips of my senses

a river of feelings
flooding

the body with endorphins

releasing hope

through an atmosphere
often

choked
with despair

though

I
always
remember
love is in the air

cosmic radiance

I walk along the forest floor, watching
as the mysteries pour forth

blooming evergreen weeds, struggling up
through the ground

looking to see if anyone’s around

they always wink at me
relating a resilience

and a broad-spectrum playfulness…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

daffodil dreams

from the tips of my fingers
to the tops of my toes

a flower sits
in repose

calling to me
dejected and forlorn

I compose

myself
and listen to the words whispered
forth

speaking to me of daffodil dreams
and peeks sanguine

in the distance
they seem

like a memory

of another time
when the love you brought to me

was something altogether different
than this fractured reverie

Earth Our Home, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Earth Our Home, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Earth Our Home

I sit atop the stairs, reminiscing on times fair, and difficult beyond repair. As the pain continues to arise, and the memories flood my mind, my heart continues to wage a war with love at the center of despair.

I pick myself up, dust off the self, and…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
