If you are reading this introduction, I assume that you have purchased or are thinking of purchasing this book. I have been writing poetry since I was a little girl, writing according to the mood I was in; writing to express an emotion I felt at the time; or writing because I needed a poem for a church program. Some of my poems stayed in my head and never made it to paper. But the book in your hand reflects those that I jotted down in notebooks, scraps of paper, the back of paper napkins or any anything I found at the time.
I am old now and not in good health. My passion is to get my poetry out there for others to enjoy or criticize or be blessed. Putting together this book presented three problems for me:
First the title – within these covers there is such a mixture of poetry – a kaleidoscope of moods, styles, interests, musings and vibes. I needed an all-inclusive title expressing the whole work;
Secondly the arrangement – How should I organize the contents. Should it be alphabetical or by theme, length or any old way;
Thirdly - Should I include prose for a little variety and fillers to fit empty places.
The volume you are holding in your hand is my final decision - my moods confessed -my thoughts expressed.
I hope you, the reader, will read behind the words and find the messages and be blessed.
You will notice – I have added contributions from my husband, S. H. Vernon and my sons, Frank and Mark Vernon. Be blessed!
