Enjoyed this article with quotes from Aldous Huxley and the art was fantastic.
She was morning glory personified
Beautiful and stunning
Her radiance glows with the sun
But more than being a hardy vine
A scenic perennial flower
Morning glory symbolizes her life
She’s a hopeless romantic
Who loves in vain—
Even a forbidden one
Spent all her waking days
With a hopeful heart
To an unrequited love, she smiles.
DAY 8:And now, for our prompt (optional, as always). It’s Friday, and writing poems isn’t easy! So let’s give ourselves a break with a simple prompt today. Poets have been writing about flowers since, oh, the dawn of time. So today, I challenge you to add your own poem to this long tradition, by finding a flower, and versifying in its honor. Happy writing!
I like flowers but I don’t really have a specific favorite. I got this idea from my A to Z post a while ago and I couldn’t be happier…

A delightful blogger!
How to write a blog that is. It’s been a long time since the last post. And it sure was difficult trying to convince the computer that I really am myself! Don’t know about anyone else but I tend to talk to my devices — and my furniture, the self check equipment at the grocery…. The one that makes me craziest is the one that keeps telling me to take my groceries over and over while I’m trying to load them all on to my power chair. Nag, nag, nag! If I want to leave them there after paying for them I sure don’t need a nagging machine to keep telling me to take them all with me.
I’ve had a long discussion with my sewing machine the past weeks. I’m certain the eye of the needle is getting smaller while the rope they have turned the thread into is…

Butterflies flit around my face
morning does not stay
minutes turns to hours
as I duel with weeds and play.
I go out front and gasp
stock-still, in awe I stand
loving flowers of every hue
petals are caressed with hand.
Sun sets, splashing orange
and yellow across the sky
fiery colors fast-slipping by.
“Dear God, is this all just for me?”
“Child of nature, thumbs of green
butterfly whisperer, home garden queen,
send your pictures to Belinda’s eyes
and they will bless all who see.

Beautiful creations from Michelle Marie, my very favorite blogger, friend, artist and writer!
You may notice a recurring theme in all my art, I hope that it is love.
I think we all love the idea of love and I tend to get carried away…
why shouldn’t I? Life is always so serious and I think for just a little
while I get lost with You, dreaming and that is just how it is
thank you for your inspiration!
Michelle Marie, this is the best gift ever! I love it when I send you pics of my flowers and you turn them into gorgeous masterpieces. I believe angels do live in my garden and I believe that angels use your willing heart and your creative mind as a playground. We are gonna have a blast in 2015! Love, Pinky
A while back, March 15, 2014, to be precise, I posted book reviews for Misha Burnett’s first two books in the “Book of Lost Doors” series, Book One: “Catskinner’s Book” and Book Two: “Cannibal Hearts”. You can read those here if you like:
I recently had the honor of reading an ARC of Book Three, “The Worms of Heaven”. This is more a series review than a book review. I don’t usually post the book descriptions with my reviews because you can read those on Amazon, but I will for this book review to give you an idea of where this book: “The Worms of Heaven” is coming from. This review is a lot longer than my typical review. You will see a much shorter version on Amazon:
Book description: “Catskinner’s Book”:
Catskinner’s Book is a science fiction/urban fantasy novel set in a surreal world unlike any that you…
