Writing is like breathing

The angels whisper, never stop trying, never give up, always ask for more..

Here is where I spread my wings and fly...

Come, take my hand
close your eyes and dream
fly with me
to shores of beaches
our toes in the sand

It May Take a Miracle

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?

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?

Asked by thiswilldestroyher

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.

When I fly

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…
