Poetry and Prose by #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, Co-Author of #1 Amazon Bestseller, Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women, and Jan/Feb 2022 Spillwords Press Author of the Month
Beginning next week, and continuing for the remainder of this calendar year, I am traveling within and without the country. The travel combined with my ever iterating and changing professional life will demand more of me, which means I will be less active here going forward. I will still visit your sites, and read your beautiful poetry and writings, however, it will be less often. I will also post less often.
I am choosing to pause, possibly indefinitely, the weekly prompt. As to next year’s collaborative project, I am still very passionate about making this happen, yet at this time, cannot write here, when, or how that will go next year; know that when I know, you will too.
Please know I am very well; all of the changes are positive, and I am very excited about them, though, paradoxically, I am sad about taking more time away from this space. This is how life goes, though, we never know what we will be gifted, and when we are open to all of life’s gifts, we walk into them with open arms.
I will update you here as my schedule and professional life continue to take shape in the coming months.
When was the last time We turned the pages of our photo album? Our memories changed colors, Stripped of its blues, the red walked alone… A haunting in lavender, the mountain shook As our watery hearts created a world, Trapped between latitudes and longitudes… Emerald leaves, signed with secrets, Flew in the wind… I guess you were always like a quiet forest, And I was the sun that shined through you, Blinded by my own light… Eyes closed, mind opened at last, I surrender to your empty canopy… Rise…
The Resurrection of Red was inspired by the poem Lavender Sheds. You can read more of Camellia’s poetry on Twitter here.
Submissions are still open for the Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow: 30 Poems in 30 Days Collaboration. The submission details are located here.
I am excited to announce that my poem, Glowing Sunrise is now available at Spillwords Press. A big thank you to Dagmara K., and the whole team at Spillwords for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.
I sit with my mind realizing
the names and forms
dawning like the sun, were given to me as a child
conditioning for sale…
I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
Love won’t leave when love asks for more of it Love to love, stays For Love is a delicate yet strong dance Of push and pull A determined yet dual-minded commitment Of will and endurance A resolute giver yet receiver Of affection and affirmation An illogical yet survivalist twist Of with and without A choreographed yet tethered balance Of give and take A resolute yet discerning choice Of stay not stray Love won’t leave when love asks for more of it Love to love, stays
