Autumn glow

After reading Lisa Hassan Scott’s various pieces in response to write alm’s November writing prompts I took a look at the various prompts and one in particular caught my eye. It was ‘Autumn glow’. I already had the picture painted, so all I needed was the words. I’m actually writing more on this subject – autumn beauty – at the moment but wanted to take part in this sharing of creativity as it looks like good fun.

Thank you, Amanda at Habit of Being, for the write alm prompts.

And this is for all the poet/painters out there 😉

Yellow ochre tinged

with alizarin crimson;

autumn beauty reigns.

A guest post about the creation of ‘The Ballad of the Beach’

I was really pleased to be able to liaise with Lisa Hassan Scott so that a piece of my writing about the creation of my poem ‘The Ballad of the Beach’ could be published on her excellent blog.

It was really good to see my poetry on her blog (me? A guest blogger?!) and to have it accompanied by the beautiful art quilt by Karen Bachman-Kells (as featured in ‘Musings on Mothering’). Lisa has a large following on her blog – and I’m not surprised as she writes with great intelligence about parenting from the heart.

and why not stop by and have a good read of the articles on her site. You may just find that a minute (or twenty) have suddenly just vanished…
