Share a Poem Sunday - Vampire Moon

"Pagan Poems" is an illustrated collection of poetry written by Carolyn Emerick. The poetry is inspired by myth and folklore, the beauty of nature, the human senses, and, of course, love.

This collection is the antithesis of "modernist" styles of poetry. Stylistic influences include classics such as Byron, Poe, and Shakespeare. This will appeal to those who love classical lyrical poetry, rhythm, rhyme, and meter, and to those who love to be transported to misty other realms of the mind.

The volume is richly illustrated in full color to aid in the full aesthetic experience. 

Vampire Moon 

Ethereal light and tranquility
 shining down with this full moon. 
Clear skies transmit so much energy, 
this night can but end all too soon. 

My skin must hide from the hot summer sun, 
and shirk from the brightness of day. 
It's when the glory of night has begun, 
my fears, they do start to dissuade.

 The others, they seem to thrive in the day.
 But, I live for the darkness of night. 
That’s when my creatures come out to play, 
but the daylight, its shine makes us hide. 

A shining disc of custard light up my way.
My gods, such ambience is rare.
If you meet my wolf as we're out of here to play,
then you better be braced for a scare.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
