Many many things inspired my book —The Sighing of the Winter Trees. The change of season, winter, spring, summer, and fall. Romance, holidays, seasons change, seasons begin. Love warmth, etc. mystery, sunset days beautiful mystery in life, Seeking warmth with a cup of tea in bed on a winter’s night. .Dreamin about beautiful things to come. Autumn leaves, romance the season of autumn etc. Clocks go round n’ round. Meeting people along the way also inspired me. Meeting friends and lovers, watching children play at the beach etc.etc.
Also I write about flowers, chocolates and romance along the mystery of life. How wonderful a gift of chocolates and flowers are and how they have a language of their own. Flowers and chocolates for any occasion. Flowers –spring, summer, winter, fall have a beauty of their own. How flowers can cheer anybody up for the occasion. How beautiful life can be for all of us. Fall flowers are especially beautiful. They come out in the fall but they highlight the beauty of autumn and bear meaning to an autumn day.
The season of autumn is especially beautiful with its falling leaves and colder weather coming on. The fall holidays –Halloween, and Thanksgiving bring cheer and warmth for the fall season. There are many many things to appreciate in life.
Seeking warmth in the colder weather to come a bowl of hot farina on a cold winter’s day the sun melting like sugar in the sky. Finding warmth and joy on a winter’s day by the fireplace waiting for love to come with a calico cat besides you named Friday. I took the word winter and personified it and gave it meaning.
There is just so much beauty and warmth in The Sighing of the Winter Trees if can fill one’s heart with joy. I write about the holiday season Christmas which has much joy for all of us –candy canes and stockings by the fireplace, taste of eggnog on one’s breath, the warmth, the joy of the holiday season is near and Santa making his rounds so diligently on Christmas Eve.
This book is guaranteed to make people happy especially around the holiday season. The Sighing of the Winter Trees is about better days to come. A hot cup of warmth or should I say cocoa by the fireplace this book has many many poems to enjoy. It’s okay to be alone until better days arrive in life. Clocks go round n’ round. There is a certain mystery in life -beyond the trains, pastry shops, beyond Woolworth’s. Beyond!
