Infinite Imaginings

Laying on a blanket in the grass
In awe gazing up at the stars
Saying to myself: “is this Venus
I see; or could it possibly be Mars?”

I see the Big Dipper
And even BIG Bear _ Gazing
Longer, I see a cross in the sky
Tell me: “What do you see there?”

Go ahead – Rename them if you wish
Use your imagination – Give it a try
Millions of these tiny luminous lights
Flickering as they light up the sky

Astrologists forever trying to teach- About
Stars and galaxies beyond reach – As
I dream of the climb up high upon a ladder
Touching one magical star; made of matter

I am a writer / Author that loves to inspire and entertain the minds of others. I’m inspired by just about anything and everything imaginable. I first realized the power of the pen as a youngster starting with my diary. My teen yr. Were spent quite often in my room where I would scan through poetry books and magazines for hours, often ripping out pages of interest. I lamented over social issues of justice, the end of the Vietnam war, race, poverty, and such. I discovered then, that writing for me seemed to be a way in and a way out of myself. And certainly, a way to respond to the world around me. My friends often assisted me with rewriting things I loved which all had a sacred spot. At 17, I was off to the city where I landed a job as a Nursing Asst. In Edmonton. I loved working in the presence of pioneers and always felt they had a lot to offer as I listened to their stories. However, it wasn’t long and I had a new vocation: Motherhood! I got caught up in the busies of life but writing little pieces remained a priority whenever possible. ~ My friends and family used to say things like: “You’re really a good little writer...You should write a book one day”...but I buried that thought with a lot of others along the way. But then I started writing a Christmas Greeting when our children were small along with random silly poetry and little notes and quotes. Feedback was always welcome and I gained a lot of confidence from my peers over the years. At times in my life when I felt empty or afflicted,  I turned to ink.  And believe me; some days INK was all I knew!   I am a survivor of breast, skin, and colorectal cancer and am truly grateful for the gift of life. I am also grateful to my husband for affording me the luxury of travel; visiting many countries. I’m a mother of four daughters, a grandmother of nine, and a mentor to many.  My husband and I live in two places: Calgary, Alberta, and our sunny sanctuary: “Ecuador” where we live 3 months of the year. I am happy to announce that in 2019 my first Children’s book: No Home For A Pigeon” was born. My second Children’s book entitled: “A Boy Is Not A Kitten” has come to fruition as well, in Mar. 2023. I now look forward to publishing a Collections book sharing some of my most prized and personal poetry and other writings of my life’s journey. I hope You will follow along with me.

  1. Oh Eva…Thank you once again for your imagining what I was hoping others would.
    I can’t wait to do this again when the weather warrants it. When we are in Ecuador (close to equator) the nights are so black and the stars are so bright.
    Star gazing is amazing! Shine on, Loreexx
