Dear Reader,

I don’t know if you have missed me very much the last few weeks but I have certainly missed you! I have been very busy with life in general but I have some awesome news to share with you. My poetry group, Allegheny Valley Poets, is compiling our very first anthology of poems titled ‘Writing On Water.’ We have all been tediously working and editing and comprising all of our poems. Our expected publish date will be around Thanksgiving.

I thought I would like to invite you to take a few moments to vote for your favorite poem! I want to provide you the chance to have your favorite poem published. After the ballots have been counted and the winning poem declared, I will then have a drawing with everyone who voted for the Reader’s Choice and one lucky person will receive a copy of ‘Writing On Water.’

Voting begins now! through Wednesday night at midnight!

Thank you

~Kimberley

A Lingering Note of Reflection

 

Miles from here

I will run

Carefree

into your arms

for that is where

my dreams are

my longing and desires

my hope

Runs

to the place

where memories

comfort and hold

the loneliness

which has

Gripped

my life

Shamelessly

I will run

until you hold me

Miles from here

Dear Reader,

This post today, this 3rd day of October, 2010, is my 100th post. I am in gratitude to you and your encouragement through your comments and in our conversations. I have been writing creatively for most of my life. Several of my dearest friends inspired me throughout the years to pursue something more than treasuring my thoughts in journals and on scraps of paper.

My 100th post seems almost surreal. I can hardly believe that I could accomplish such a feat and to present my writings creatively and artistically along with different forms of visual art.

To all of my subscribers I wish to express a heart of thanksgiving for your faithfulness to me. To all of my viewers, thank you for visiting and I truly hope that you are encouraged to notice the little details in life, to see the motives in another, and to realize that He who has created you loves you incredibly.

While I am sitting here writing this letter to you, my spirit trembles with excitement as well as some sadness. I think it would be appropriate to say ‘bittersweet’ thoughts are grasping my attention. I love writing poetry. That is who I am. I am a poet. Yet I have always had a desire to write something even more substantial. About a month ago now, I received a most exciting idea for a novel. I have always wanted to write a novel but never had any idea of what I would write about. Now I have characters full of emotion and desires and scenes aching to be penned. The plot needs to unravel and I am the one that must heed the direction from within.

I really have no idea what to expect since I have never done anything like this before but I will still write and post as often as I can. I am just expecting that it may not be as frequent as it has been. I promise to remain faithful to you and share the thoughts, inspirations, and musings of my life, which leads me to an observation that truly needed my consideration and realization.

Have you desired your entire life, thus far, to accomplish something that you find day after day to be unattainable? The knowledge of failure in a certain area can become frustrating, overwhelming, and at times even haunting to the point of disturbing your sleep and your dreams.

Well, as stated above, I have finally accepted my inability to be a strikingly beautiful artist of pencil, pastel, ink, watercolor, and oil; but I also realize that when my imagination beholds something beautiful, I must be faithful to endeavor towards the challenge to reveal what has inhabited the interior. Though there may be imperfections of an untrained and rustic artist, my hope would be that the portrait of the artist would reveal the beauty of the spirit.

Praying for symmetry~

Yours truly,

Kimberley
