Hello, my friends!
I was looking through my blog archives and oh my goodness, has it really been two years since I did a poetry post like this?? Well it’s past time for another one, then! I’ve been storing up a collection of poetry in my notebook for such a time as this. 🙂
Today I have ten new poems for you guys, accompanied by pretty pictures. I hope you enjoy slowing down for a moment and reading something a bit more serious and thoughtful than usual. ❤
Have you ever been out walking in the golden evening when the world is soft and quiet and the honey sun coats everything?
Have you ever seen the brown and dull things glow around the edges, gilded by the light, or a sullen cloud with a silver lining and just… it just looked beautiful, even if it was the saddest looking thing the last time you passed by? Sometimes the light makes flowers on the trees where nothing exists but brown buds, shining and illuminated with warmth.
What I am asking is, have you ever seen the sun transfigure ordinary things into something glorious?
I have seen it happen. And I know, whatever happens, I cannot quite give up hope…
Today is an exciting day, because I’m about to reveal the winner of my book launch giveaway, YAYYY! 😀 For those of you who didn’t win, I will provide links to most of the things in the giveaway in case you’d like to get them yourselves. I’m also going to do another seasonal playlist at the end with some aesthetic fall pictures. 🙂
I know you guys probably just skipped that whole paragraph, so let’s just get into it, huh? XD
AHHHHHH. I AM IMMENSELY EXCITED. Because guys – it’s finally time to reveal my second poetry book! *happy dance* I’ve been working on this project for the past year, and I’m so ready to announce it officially. 🙂
This year, the book launch will be accompanied by a small-ish blog tour and A GIVEAWAY! Eeep! I’m so excited for the giveaway too; I kind of want to keep everything myself. 😛
So, let’s jump right in before I burst with excitement. 😀
***NOTE: I had to re-publish this a couple of times since WordPress wasn’t cooperating. Sorry if you’ve seen it more than once!***
Anyway. Here’s an interesting question: how would you describe your favorite color to a blind person? It’s HARD, isn’t it? I tried writing a description of my favorite color without the word “purple” in it, and had so much fun that I wrote a bunch more!
Today I’m going to try to describe ten different colors in no particular order using little poems or sketches in such a way that you can figure out which color I’m referring to without me actually naming it. (Did that make any sense?) I’ll follow each sketch with a photo in case you need a hint, so scroll slow if you don’t want spoilers. XD Have fun!
Before we get started, thank you SO much for helping my first post of sketches tie for the “best writing/poetry post” on Megan’s Best of 2018 awards! It was lovely of you all to nominate me, for that and for the other categories. It made my day!
Anyway, I mention that because… today I have another sketch for you! I wrote it almost a year ago, but waited to post it til I had another set of pictures to go with the words. Now I do, and I’m so excited to share it!
These words are a little bit strange, but honestly, so is my mind sometimes. XD I still like it (especially the ending), and I hope you do too. 🙂 Find a comfy spot, sit down for a spell, and enjoy…
