Tender, yet ravaged by longing
painful, yet endured by pleasure
nourished, yet starved by distance
sweet, yet soured by goodbyes
I could fly south
maybe like a bird
confused by dipping
temperatures in and out of
sunny skies and snowflakes
but I stay and conjure up ideas
that the rain soaked gray skies
will soon part a sea
like in the movie “The Ten Commandments”
and chariots blazing in gold
rush through chasing tidbits
of nasty weather
while butterflies and cartoon characters
shoot sunshine from bazookas
How could one leave now
with so much to look forward to?
Some mornings are like parts in my hair
crooked, no clean lines to follow
just a splash of cold water to the face
a few quick shakes of feather strands
a world to conquer©
Yes folks no joke, that is snow on my roof. It’s snowing! From sunburn to snow in just a few days.
Hi there :) I've got a question for you. I know you've had copyright problems in the past (if I'm not mistaken), in the sense that someone copied some of your work. Now, what would you say is the best way to approach such situations and/or to protect your own work?

First I suggest you google everything about copyright protection and infringement. Read and learn all your rights.
Second, date your work, keep copies and back up everything.You must have proof of ownership.
Third, if you know who the person is, confront them, ask them to remove or delete any of your original work. Cease and desist. If it’s a blog like here on tumblr, contact the web site to report the incident. Contact any web site where you find your work published without your permission, and demand it be removed. You will have to do this in writing, showing proof.
Fourth, advertise on your blog letting anyone visiting that your work is under copyright protection as a reminder.
Other than these simple things, there is still not much you can do to safely secure your writing. It is what it is. Sadly plagiarism is going to happen no matter what you do to deter it.
I hope this helped answer some of your questions. Of course there are other steps, but these are a great place to start.
This still blows me away every time. Humbled here… <3’s x endless
You called me to the mountain
barely audible whispers
in a slumber of silent content
through miles of flowing curtains
soft billowy waves
in summer white cotton
wafting whiffs of baby’s breath
I skinned my knees
on crests of mountains
you said “fly higher into the breeze”
I have never felt so free…
No clouds forming doom
not this Monday
not this morning
with new things to write
new ideas to share
a brand new week
to take advantage of
and this feeling on a Monday
for me, is very rare
Now how about some coffee?
