Number 18 My Faery Guide
My deck of Faery Oracle cards comes with a blank card. You are suppose to wait until you meet your faery guide (or are inspired) and then you are to draw your personal faery guide on the card. Well That's a difficult task for one who is not artistic.
I knew for a bit that my personal faery guide was a dragonfly faerie. Lore has it that often faeries turn into dragonfly like creatures to avoid being seen by humans. There much lore about both dragonflies and faeries and they are frequently linked. The dragonfly is also a symbol of the soul and as such fits me to a tee....
I finally managed to get a dragonfly image on my card....it doesn't look like a faery...it looks like a dragonfly...but inside where the magic exists...it is a faery...my personal faery guide...!!!

Number 28...My Published Poem
Well I entered a poetry contest in a small regional newspaper and won first prize. I entered three poems but the winning one was Casting Shadows. One of my favorites....well who am I kidding....I love them all...they are all a part of me...soul musings...
The best part is the poem was published in the paper.....so now I can say I've been published..lol

So I have been gathering my poems to print and put in a binder...Now I never said I was going to PUBLISH a book of poetry....simply write one...and so I have started this item on my bucket list...
Number 1: Writing a Book of Poetry
One of the things are my list...number one to be exact....is to write a book of poetry. Well this morning I was musing about how I'm sure not accomplishing much on my bucket list as I was browsing through my many blogs. Suddenly it occured to me that most all of my blogs have some of my poems on them....if I simply copied and pasted them into a word document...I'd have a pretty good start on my book of poetry..

Well, I'm not getting on to well ...marking things off my list. I did purchase the mat board for 15 SoulCollage cards so I hope to get started on those soon....
I'm going to have to add some additional items to my list....but what? Something to ponder another day I suppose!!!

Wandering Through Life
Wander through life,
Reach into the crevices of a soul
To touch the essence of life
The mundane days
Slip by and
Capture the heart
Tease the mind
Quietness of everyday
Gives birth to Adventure
Nourished with intrigue
Sprinkled with thrills
Seasoned with possiblities
Baked to perfection
