Is poetry really a thing of the past?
I believe that every person has their own way of expressing what they want others to know. Poetry is never a lost art form, if you believe it can send a message. I believe God is using me to send a message to people. He wants his children to know life can be rewarding and prosperous. If not in wealth, most definitely in love. I have always been a positive person. Sharing my thoughts through words is one way to let others know…. happiness comes from the little things. Having hope and believing in something is a very powerful thing. Poetry does not have to be complex or written with big words. My poetry is expressed with the love I carry inside me. It is through experiences, hope, love and excitement of who I have become and what I believe, through faith, that keeps me inspired. I can only say, if you want to write poetry, do not let anyone tell you it is never going to sell or no one will ever be interested. The people who know you, they are interested! They tell others and they tell the people they know. You are writing poetry because you love to. So, believe it! Poetry is NOT a lost art form…. it will always be with us. Like people…… poetry is like the saying…” Variety is the spice of life !
I plan on always being inspired by the people I meet, the experiences I go through and the faith I have in what we are here for. I pray, you too, stay inspired and believe in yourself!
My inspiration comes from all of you!
Every experience I have lived through, has led me to the person I am today. I found my inspiration with the strength of Jesus keeping me filled with His love. This wonderful gift was given to me when I asked for His help. Like all of you, life has its’ trials and sad times. It has honestly helped me, when I learned about Jesus. Indescribable, is the peace in my heart, no matter what happens in my life. Thank You, God.
Thank you, to all of my friends and family, for inspiring me with your love and your support!
I am an author with much to share. Through art, poetry and other genres of books, you will find me on the internet, iTunes, FriesenPress and some book stores. I love to express a variety of works to inspire hope, love and just knowing whatever w3 may be going through, we’re never alone in it. Reach out to anyone, any form of connecting and know you’re loved.
Experiences and people I have met through the years has inspired me to keep writing.
My first book is, To Touch Your Heart, dedicated to my daughter Mary. The second book, Special Tribute to Mothers Everywhere is co-written with Gord Baird. My third book is My Heart is Yours, and is dedicated to my brother, Riccy.
The poems are written in a contemporary format and designed to touch your heart.
It’s not only simple, heartfelt poetry that is meant to fill others with love, hope and joy, it’s a story of a young girl’s journey through life. A life that could have similarities of your own. You can read about it in my latest book,”Suppose”. (The Experience of one Can Help Another)
Keep a watchful eye on my next release! A fascinating adventure of a little bear you may remember,”Because You Care for Beany Bear”. There’s more to the story than you know.
Thanks for believing in me.
Here is an excerpt from, To Touch Your Heart – Poems of Inspiration
Mission Tree, wait for me
To say hello
to see you stand alone
so full and round
The drive toward your home
where you live
Inspires me to smile
before I even see you
my favorite tree
