A feeling touches me now and again; a feeling which I have no idea where it came from, save for the sense that it came from the Universe, the Heaven's above...

In the wake of this feeling I am left with wonder, joy, and, encouragement. It simply makes me feel good and strong...

I am left feeling like I can face anything, and, that I can do so with strength and wisdom. It is one of those feelings for which there are no explanations. It is like a tiny manifestation which turns into a whole being experience. Sometimes it moves me to tears. Other times it just moves me to action. And still other times it leads me to understanding of that which was perplexing me...

The Heavenly realm and the experiences it lends to human life is beautiful. It is nothing which we will comprehend. We merely accept it as a gift and move forward with its moving presence...

Such things build the spirit. Such things confirm faith, belief, and, perseverance. It is the answering of prayers. It is the love of the Creator (GOD), and, it is well received by me...

My name is Lynda Winsor. I am a published poet and an aspiring writer. I am working on a collection of poetry, dealing with love and religion. I can't wait to get it published! I have been writing since I was 13 years old, and, one of the first pieces I ever wrote got published in the newspaper. One of my teachers submitted it without me knowing and then surprised with it. Imagine how happy I was.
Writing is what I do and love. It is an intricate part of me such as is my faith. I am no angel, but, without God in my life, I would not be...
Always moving forward, never looking back. I am perfectly imperfect and accept that as my design. I seek improvement and knowledge in every way, but, I am grown enough to know that I will never be perfect so I do the best I can do with what I have. I believe in myself and in love. I also believe that the past is the moment which just went by and that the future begins in the present, therefore, what you do at this moment is imperative to tomorrow. I also believe and practice that life is about love, respect, honor, and integrity. If you live in each of these characteristics then you should be able to ever grow, all the while touching lives of others...

Softly out of focus,

the colour

of lipsticked kisses

brings back memories

from the past

renewing old longings

through old eyes

and floral scents

reviving ancient urges.

I've had more than six decades on Earth as a Western Australian and
played cricket for more than four of those decades. No profession but a
range of occupations and am now a trainee retiree doing a little
teaching. Technically separated with three children and seven
grandchildren, I am an addicted genealogist with a special interest in
social history. Reading voraciously (currently favouring what I call
"Celtic Fantasy") I have, for the past five years, rarely had a camera
out of reach. I write soppy love poems and extremely filthy limericks. I
blog incessantly as a way of learning the discipline of writing. I have
been Ærchie since shortly after finding the internet a decade ago
because I am bored with my common, given name. Oh, and I pun a lot -
love this language with which we are blessed.

The book Club
Wall Poster
Ira McCully

A handful of women
sitting around the table
sipping tea
discussing books

wise women
bearing ideas as well as children
dispensing wisdom
aiding each other

from thirty to seventy
not a sarcastic voice
no testerone needed here
so much caring and admiration

the current book is discussed for moments
but love and solidarity is theirs forever
mostly descended from a mutual grandmother
but enhanced by overwhelming respect

solving problems
no petty jealousies
just delight in individual strengths
dynamic women

sitting around the table
sipping tea
discussing books
saving the world
