Sacred Water

A reading of my thanksgiving poem SACRED WATER to my Lord Jesus – with gratitude for guiding me through the creation of Sunny Gifts of Love and the grace to continue to write and share.

Seeds of hope
In my heart
With healing touch
You did plant

Watching over
Each tender blossom
With sacred water
From the wells

Tending to
The garden now
The taste of love
Is in the fruit

Thank You Jesus
For giving life
To these gifts
I share with joy

Distant Lights

When your eyes wander over the western sky
And those distant lights make you wonder why
It’s not just the stars listening to your cry

Then reach for the hand that is by your side
Find a song that will light up those tired eyes
There’s healing coming at you from far and wide

Hold your dear ones even closer to your heart
Feel strength fill you up, don’t give up the fight
When you’re looking up, love travels faster than light

Poetry Gifts

I have been writing poems and putting them in cards and frames since I was a kid. Giving these as gifts, I find that most people remember or still have a poem they received. One that I particularly like to gift is the poem Equilibrium. This is my favorite inspirational poem in my collection, and I am sharing it again as we get close to the holidays.

Be inspired to give gift of poetry

Ask & let go

I sent my wishes out into the universe
With a prayer because God only knows
Both my intention and what must happen
And I let go.. willing to accept His wisdom

Gold & Green

I’ve been a #SharingwithWriters subscriber and contributor for almost 10 years, and I am very happy to give back to the wonderful Carolyn Howard-Johnson and the Author community by designing this new look for the Newsletter.


I enjoyed creating this with Carolyn’s website branding colors and here’s what I think about the significance of gold & green:

Carolyn truly is the gold standard for curating and sharing “How To” content. She never misses an opportunity to ask “How did you do that?” followed by “Would you like to share?”. If you read her Newsletter, you’ll see it is packed with valuable insights and great Tips for writing, editing, publishing, and promoting. She’s all about doing things frugally and always shares information about what is FREE. So green and all the shades of it, must be a reminder to Authors about saving money by doing things the frugal way.

It is fun to work with colors, and I hope more writers will find gold and green in Carolyn’s wisdom.

The date
Was marked
In my heart
And deep down
I didn’t want to be alone
But it was
The kind of day
With a lot to do
And no-one to talk to
So I let it go
With a sigh
Didn’t even
Want to write
And then I found
A sweet surprise
Words of hope
Just for me
From a friend
Who didn’t know
And I thought
With a smile
This, I’ve got to write..
There are no coincidences
When we have angels

Remembering Saumya (Sam) – the spirit of your love lives on, touching our hearts with friendship unlimited.
