So it seems that the other day (June 28th to be exact) was the one year anniversary of my first post here on wordpress. I am not much for birthdays or anniversaries but this is one that I can accept with open arms.

Since my taking the leap and deciding to share my words with the WP public, I have made new friends, collaborated with some AMAZING writers and poets, and have had the privilege of reading some of the most creative and powerful writing I have ever known. I have learned SO MUCH from all of you and hope to continue to grow as a writer and a person as the days, months, and years continue to slip past.

May time be kind to all of our minds, bodies, spirits, and imaginations. For those are the things that make us what we are. Writers…….. This piece is for all of us. May we all continue to thrive.




 I look back fondly on a decision so hard to make

The choice to take the leap and open my life’s book

Bare my warrior soul to the unknown faceless masses

Releasing both my Demon’s and Angel’s to the ether

As my words will most assuredly never hide my true self


The strength of the written word is invincible

The intensity derived from freeing the mind to page

Is equal to that of a thousand blazing suns

With each word the power becomes greater

As knowledge is both gained and imparted


It has not always been a smooth journey

For the obstacles of self and truth are many

Scattered about along the path to enlightenment

Are the trials and tribulations that drive my pen

As past and current Demon’s vie for my imagination


Decision was made to take the leap of faith

Followed by the uncertainties of an unknown land

What if my words do not carry the weight I intend?

Perhaps they will be misconstrued or worse

The tragic fate of reaching an uninterested populace


The going was treacherous and slow at first

My voice beckoned loudly into the thinnest air

Echoing but only bringing  response of the few

The realization of my ambition was the answer

To write for oneself is the only true purpose


This knowledge was my golden key

The one single thing that freed my soul

Allowing my heart to soar and mind to break free

Free of the chains of self imposed insecurities

For this day I genuinely write for me

  1. I am so very grateful and blessed that you did take that leap and shared your words with us all. You were the first to ask me to dance with words and you have offered unwavering support in my own endeavor to open up my soul to the WP masses. Happy anniversary, dear friend!! Hopefully we will celebrate your blog for many years to come!!

    • Thank you D. I treasure our friendship and connection, and am still blown away by how the power of words brought us together cosmically. It was an instantaneous bond that I hope only gets stronger as time marches forward. Be well my friend and thank you as always for the support and encouragement. Keep inspiring.

    • You too are a June Blog Baby? That is awesome. So glad I decided to do this. It is a very therapeutic and awesome hobby. Plus I have “met” so many cool people/artists.

      • I started on the 13th. I can’t believe I remember the date. I’m usually rubbish with dates. Just shows the significance of it for us, eh? Here’s to many more posts and people we meet. 🙂 x
