From Beautiful Words Vol 1 Chapter 7: “The Beauty of Knowledge”📚
As a little girl growing up, I have fond memories of clocks. It seemed as though the stillness of my tiny existence, Could always be measured by the “tick-tock” I heard from clocks. My great grandmother Lucy had many clocks in her home! Whenever I would stay over, I drifted off to the sound of “tick-tock.”
Since those innocent childhood days, I have learned this;
Life is different everyday…small chances for exact repeats! So take the time to live life…to its truest colors of yellow. Life is not always wearing glass slippers. But if you own a pair, Take the time to wear them. Life is not always a smooth ride on a boat. But if you are near one, Take the time to go sailing. Life is not always sweet melodies of songs. But if you know some, Take the time to sing them. Life may not always be a great adventure novel. But if you have one, Take the time to read it.
As an adult, I still love the sounds that clocks make. Although Father Time seems to be in such a slow rush. Peaceful to my spirit are the chimes of a Grandfather’s Clock. Assuring me, in the middle of the night, at that very moment…I have time!
“Tick-tock.” “Tick-tock.” When I hear this sound…I know that I am taking time. Time to mediate…to the sounds of the greatest clock of all, The clock of life…the one for which we can never rewind. Clocks!
“Beautiful masterpieces…and a constant tune to the times of our lives!”
As we ring in 2019 everyone is thinking of, and looking forward to, all things promising and possible. And for me, it is continuing to share my “Beautiful Words” through books and blogging poems of encouragement and inspiration!
“A Woman’s Heart”, has arrived!!❣️
Now, let me share with you other writings I am planning to publish in 2019. From the “Beautiful Words Volume 1” collection of poems–“SouthernBeauties”, “Sisters”, “Wishes”—together in one beautifully illustrated book coming for Mother’s Day! And, to be released in December, the complete chapter of “The Beauty of Belief”, in one book also with the poems–“Angels”, “Heaven”, “Prayer”, “The Creator”, “Thereafter”. These writings were written from my heart and for the audience, I always believed was yet to come; you!
“Beautiful Words Volumes 1 and 2” is a collection of free verse eclectic poetry. All of the writings in these collections was written years ago, as early as 2006 and as late as 2013. It began when good friends Danny and Aline Massey gave me an old computer. A really old computer! lol (Thank you, Danny and Aline.😘) But I had recently moved to a new town and had nothing special to do after looking for work all day. The computer, however, was a laptop and the only thing that could be done on it was typing. No pictures. No Color. Just a blinking horizontal line on a dark backdrop. So I immediately started to type the words that I was hearing in my head. It was the most natural thing for me. I didn’t even need to think about it! Before long I had written my first piece, “Eyes”.
As I spilled my words onto the computer, I could feel something happening in my soul. Calmness. Contentment. Joy. Peace, like I never experienced before. For a person who had suffered her whole life, fighting anxiety and depression, I was completely relieved…and still. This was a place I had never witness before in my life. And I instantly knew I never wanted to be rescued from this feeling. After years of being a daughter, sister, mother, aunt, and friend, in that very moment, I had also become, an author!
Coming in early 2019, just in time for Valentine, an illustrated paperback booklet from my “Beautiful Words Volume 1” collection, entitled “A Woman’s Heart.” This will be the first paperback book you will be able to purchase, with others to follow! All of the books will be illustrated by my very talented publisher and friend, Miriam Douglas. Please stay tuned to find out how you can purchase your book from this website ❣️
Long before I ever found my writing fingers, I loved to read! English Literature was my absolute passion. To my wonderful delight, both of my children inherited my love of reading! I could not have been more pleased. My son picked up this sweet poetry book, for my birthday, in a quaint little bookstore. My new golden treasure book and close bedtime reading fix before drifting off to sleep! Thank you, son.🌻
