Green, yellow and blue

Indigo and violet

A bit of every hue


Illusion with mirrors, reflection of light

Symmetrical patterns emerge and delight

Like a kaleidoscope, your mood is erratic

First hot, then cold, so often sporadic

Ambivalent and impulsive

Unstable and indecisive

Your capricious nature so well I know

Personality which face will you show

Turn the cylinder and change the view

To see a different side of you

Review: The Lovely Brush by Heather Awad

Here’s a copy of my Amazon and Goodreads Review for The Lovely Brush, the latest poetry collection from Heather Awad.

Heather Awad’s latest collection of poetry, The Lovely Brush, is introspective, insightful, thought-provoking, highly relatable, and thoroughly delightful! Awad has a keen ability to paint beautiful pictures with her words, using vivid descriptions and wonderful metaphors. The Lovely Brush is an enjoyable follow-up to her debut collection, The Girl with The Blue Umbrella. I highly recommend this book! — L.M.Giannone, Author

The happiest, and consequently, the saddest day of my life, on the beach I shall never forget.


Specks of black and gold

Under the blanket

Where we made love

Footprints in the sand

Surf pulsing

Tide washes away

Any remnants of you and I

Broken seaglass along the shore

Sand dollar not worth a dime

Cracked in pieces

Pummeled into dust

Dunes of sand

Grains spiral and dissipate into the air

Hearts made of shells

Crushed underfoot

Abandoned tide pools

Castles crumble dissolving into their moats

Sun suspends on the horizon

For a moment time stands still

Then slowly descends

With one final kiss

Waves break in rhythm

Stronger grows the riptide

Pulled farther away

Out to sea
