Birds By My Window: Willow Tree Poems
I work from inside my condominium, self-employed, out on the balcony are flowers of many mixed colors, a birdfeeder I replenish each day for doves and sparrows. Sixty feet away from my window is a lush, huge, 33 year old willow tree, draped with branches leaning toward the ground, flowing shades of green blowing left to right with the wind, through the sun. I love this old willow tree and the scratching sounds of little bird feet inside a large plastic bowl filled with birdseed on my patio balcony--almost as dearly as my kitten, Nikki. Thus, the beginning of Birds By My Window: Willow Tree Poems a new blog for poets and writers. E-Mail: promomanusa.com.

Wizards Of The Wind and Other Strange Places
Wizards Of The Wind is a poetry journal or journey devoted to creativity. Wizards in the wind can be found in silent nights alone, moments of joy and spring, in mysteries of life, in dreams created in nightmares or looking out your balcony window. Wizards are not demons or devils at this site, rather gems of mind creation wherever they happen to be silently found or formed. Creativity is elusive, not even easy for a poet or artist to find; often it pops out of experiences from seemingly nowhere; other times it is triggered by a word (s), or image (s) or experience. Here you are encouraged to share all these notions and leave them in a strange place, Wizard Of The Wind. E-mail: email@example.com
A Tender Touch and a Shade of Blue
A tender touch and a shade of blue is an old title I gave to a series of poems most of which originated while in exile in Edmonton, Alberta Canada during the Vietnam era.
Nowdays, most of thoughts, life, and creativity come from looking out my second floor balcony window. That window is huge and shows me my poetic world each day. A bird feeding basket hangs in the middle of the window; doves, sparrows, and the occassion male cardinal plus a few squirrels come to feed and display their feather and furry attire to me. Sometimes I feel like Emily Dickinson who often would stare out her 2nd floor, bedroom, window out over the streets and write her poems from that milieu. Poems don't have to have a large world to be created in.
A Tender Touch and a Shade Of Blue poetry and general art site is designed for beginners and professional writers. If it were not for small venues and small presses, poets would be alone in cornfields screaming out to the wild winds. So it is here with the sparrows, doves, and Nikki my cat where I spend my time and create my poems and post the creative works of others. E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
