I must ask you to bear with me here as many of you have visited my haven before and have seen my beautiful flowers many a time.

However I have to share these with you all once more as this hub will be a foundation for this series.

When I first began to publish online I had no structure ;I didn't need structure at that point ;words and emotions just came tumbling out.

However as time passed by structure began to flow through, at its own pace.

"My Beautiful Rock Rose" a book of poetry in memory of my beautiful daughter Erin is currently going through the process of being published.

Then recently I had my very first ebook published published ;Sunshine Ray and I which tells the story of a little girl so badly abused but her life could only get better when she was adopted by Indians.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/174254.


I am currently working on Book II.

Most of my writing has been created and has blossomed out on our patio ;a haven where I feel so close to dearly loved ones as I sit beside our mini-garden created in memory of Erin and sister Val.

Oh yes a beautiful haven which has been created by myself and my partner,best friend and soul mate Dai.

I have spent so many wondrous moments surrounded by beauty and realising just how fortunate I am.

I feel so rich despite those deep heartaches of days gone by.

I do not mean rich as in material wealth ; my riches fill my heart!!

There are so many things in life that money can never ever buy.

Here I will share my home and haven with you all.



A morning a little gloomy

a heart a little heavy

.A view so drab

Sounds muffled

mists seep

through

Bird’s songs muted

flights a little slow

Leaves lose their lustre

flowers cease to bloom

a little jaded .

I need that inspiration

will it today arrive;

life is to be lived,

tomorrows to entice

while yesterdays left behind!!

How do I move on

from this

doom and gloom ?????

I open my heart

and

allow deep positive thoughts

to ignite my inner spirit

to await a few moments

until my heart is full.


As my spirit

awakens further

the mist doth arise

revealing

the beauty

the glow

of my haven

my paradise to me.

The joy brimming over

as the blooms are dancing .


The birds

so happy

with that radiant glow.

The leaves

on the trees

have regained

each lustre.

Whenever a day misted

with a spirit low


I sit in my haven

until my heart and soul

doth glow.

I learn

I care

and

I love.

Hi Eddy,

Few people get through life without some pain and sorrow. You have shared yours so openly with us. It is so heartening to know that your pleasures are now far outpacing the sorrows of the past. Just looking at those gorgeous flowers and plants would lift just about anyone's spirit. Thanks for this look into your corner of the world and your life.

Oh Eddy such beauty your garden bursts forth. God has blessed you abundantly with your loved ones spirits. They blossom beautifully before your loving eyes and heart. To walk amongst this colourful palette given you is indeed a gift. Your loved ones feel your presence always and honour you with inspiration to be as creative a writer as you shine here. Peace and blessings to you and yours this day my friend. BTW I love the picture of the bee on the flower, brilliant.


stessily 4 years ago

Eddy, Your haven is a true place of repose, beauty, peace, joy, love, and gratitude. Your generosity in sharing your haven is greatly appreciated. I also value the journey, through words and photos, which effectively transforms "A morning a little gloomy, a heart a little heavy" into a glowing "heart and soul". The honey bee on the poached egg flower is exquisite.

Appreciatively, Stessily
