The Beat of My Own Drum

Do Not Miss this wonderful and inspiring post by my friend Lesley – “The Beat Of My Own Drum!!

Today I was Inspired.

I heard an interview with an author I greatly admire,

And when she was asked why she was drawn to the unusual, to the paranormal…

That vampires, ghosts, and werewolves were nothing more than a metaphor for those of us who walk on the sidelines.

Those of us who feel like we are on the outside of society looking in.

And I had an epiphany for my entire creative existence.

Come read Soiba’s great depiction of “dilemma” in a relationship. Be sure you explore her Archives.

You may have had the best of plans for your day or your project and what you expected the results of the day to deliver and yet, sadly at work or at home things didn’t turn out as planned.

Beneath the Earth ~ #poetry #MarchWriting

Come and discover Dorinda’s lovely grotto in “Beneath The Earth”. Be sure and explore her Archive too!

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

Hidden beneath the earth
In a grotto, the tide rolls in
Is this place I can call my very own
Where tranquil waters caress my skin

I watch the sunlight streaming
From the darkness of my cave
Reflections float around me
Yet, I am not afraid

Though peaceful ripples signal
The tide is about to change
I will not leave this treasure
For everywhere else is strange

Here is where I feel at home
This is where I wish to stay
Quietly listening, to the sounds
Of the water, from the bay
