Welcome to my Author Spotlight Guest Posts


I have started a new feature on my blog, called Author Spotlight – Guest Posts. As you can see from the image above, I am looking for themed posts about fairies, myths, and magic. If you are an interested author and would like to be featured on my blog, please click HERE to find out more. ~Colleen~


My guest today is Judy Martin from Edwina’s Episodes. I met her about three years ago through our love of poetry while participating in a Haiku challenge. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t see a poem from Judy on social media that brings a smile to my face. She writes with a certain sense of humor filled with the poignancy of real life.

Here is Judy, reciting a poem that has become one of my  favorites:

Poetry is written…

World Poetry Day

I originally wrote this for last year but thought it should have another airing for those of you that missed it!

I love to write a  poem

About all kinds of stuff

The things that make me happy

Or to moan when things get tough!

There are many types of poem

From which to take your pick

A Haiku, sonnet or blank verse

Ode or Limerick

Some poems can be so funny

Others make you cry

Many are inspiring

So go and give one a try

I want to add my voice to others

In this unique display

Of poets coming together

For World Poetry Day!

Well Here it is!

 

I am very thrilled and delighted to show you my beautiful, shiny new book! Chris at The Story Reading Ape has done an absolutely brilliant job of designing the perfect cover for it too.  He was so helpful and accommodating to me, despite my inexperience in these matters and problems with my e-mail!

At the moment, it is available at CreateSpace, and is now available on Kindle and Amazon.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I had been encouraged to publish a collection of my poems, and now I have finally done it! I do love to rhyme things and this book is pretty much a compilation of some of my favourites! I have even included some of the raunchier ones to add a little extra spice!

 

 

 

 

A British Winter

The summer is now over

The clocks go back tonight

Dark winter evenings beckon

And the mornings are less bright

Halloween will be upon us

When the kids will knock our doors

Dressed as ghosts and vampires

Dripping with blood and gore

Next we celebrate Guy Fawkes

And his failed gunpowder plot

With fireworks and bonfires

Sparklers, the lot!

Then of course comes Christmas

With its season of goodwill

When Santa comes a calling

Looking for some stockings to fill

Then we start the New Year

With hopes and dream anew

Resolutions for improvements

Which last until week two!

February brings Valentine’s Day

When love is in the air

With hearts, and flowers and chocolates

And cute little teddy bears!

Then the winter’s over

Spring comes to say hello

And, seeing as this is Britain

We’ll probably get some snow!
