Embracing a broad range of subjects, styles and moods, this book of contemporary poetry represents nearly a lifetime of the poetry composed by Maron Craig Bielovitz. Always in tune with nature and the seasons around her, Maron has brought those impressions to life here while also sharing some of her personal photographs taken along the way. Rhyming, free verse, somber, sentimental, alliterative and just plain fun verses are here for readers of all ages.
As I lay me down to sleep, into my consciousness should creep
two headed dragons, castles with moats, owls and love-struck kitties in boats,
frogs being kissed, white horses prancing, a handsome prince and his princess dancing.
Is that a mad hatter or a magical wizard riding side-saddle on a slippery lizard?
Words become images that morph into words. Sentences look like a string of blackbirds
They soar through my head as I lay on my pillow, eyes full of grit, brain turned to jello.
I know I must slumber and get some rest so I'll wake up creatively feeling my best.
How can I draw, how can I write when I cannot get to sleep at night?
With the dawn comes the dread I must roll out of bed and get my head on straight.
I will get a blank paper and dream up a caper if I really concentrate.READ MORE
My brush will reveal in color that’s real a wonderful illustration.
It will all come together. I’ll be light as a feather with a feeling of jubilation!
It’s a bit of angst, a touch of strife to experience a writer’s life.
It’s reaching inside and showing our worth with every gem that we unearth.
And in the end there’s only this…it’s revealing our soul, sharing our bliss.
It’s taking a space that’s empty and bare and creating something magical there.COLLAPSE
