Poetry Leaves #1 - My Place of Solitude

Image
With autumn soon coming, I find myself in a nostalgic state that always comes when the air grows cold and leaves begin changing colours. This year, however, it's different. Instead of just thinking, it's made me write. I want to finish those stories I've started. I want to write more poetry. I want to take myself out of a mindset of dreaming of the things I could discover on pen and paper and acting on those dreams instead.
Which leads to this blog post. I've decided to share the poems I write on this blog, in hopes to keep myself motivated to write them and give me a reason to be a little more active in Blogland. :) Here is my first poem:
My Place of Solitude
I know a place of solitude It's down the road a stretch. I can go there when I need to Have a place to sort my thoughts.
It's a spot down at the river Where it makes a little bend. I found my special "Thinking Rock" there For quiet reigns as king.

As the peaceful river
Goes gliding along

Roses, Scars, Wolves. . .an Exciting "Beauty and the Beast" Retelling Release

Image
Hullo, dear friends! I come today with some very exciting news. You may know by now how much I love the "Legends of Light" series which is being written by Hope Ann, and she just released another one!!

War clouds the horizon and rebels gather under a mysterious leader. Alone, with her two younger sisters, Elissa watches the mountain road desperately for her brother’s return. Instead, she receives news of his capture by a strange figure covered in scars and cloaked in wolf skins. With rebels drawing nearer, she sets off to find her brother. To save him. There is no one else who can.

Yet she soon finds the rose that granted her warning now holds her captive in safety. Outside the valley, war threatens those she loves most. Though her strange host claims the ancient promises of the Prince’s return and victory over the rebels, Elissa knows the blood-drenched truth. She is on her own. Elissa will do anything to keep her family safe, but more than one kind of wolf stalks the Blackw…
