"Prompt Response - Poems of 2014"
As the title of this book indicates, most of
what I have written during the past year
has been in response to weekly or daily
poetry prompts provided by the good
folks and readers of Robert Lee Brewer’s
Poetic Asides Blog on the web at
As I age, time speeds by and thoughts slow
to a crawl. Bear with me and I hope you enjoy
the poems of 2014.
(An Eclectic Family Anthology)
"Family Matters, Vol. II"
W. David MacKenzie
Peggy S. Overbey
Ruth Y. Nott
Just as our lives twist and turn on
a whim, so does this poetry patchwork.
"Haiku for Lovers"
(A Personal Journey in Haiku -
Life in Seventeen Syllables)
"Where Memory Lingers"
These poems and essays come from
where memory lingers, from those
times when reality was not where we
wanted to be.
"Garden of Faith"
All the poems you loved in
"A Pure and Simple Faith" plus as
many more warm and touching
"Channels of Verse"
A varied collection of poetry by
members of the Suwannee River Poets.
"After the Rain"
These poems reflect an acute realization that God
is everywhere and all knowing and demonstrates
a sensitivity to everyday events, and vulnerability
to the uncertainty of love.
"Here on My Knees"
Contained within the pages of Here on My Knees
you will find poems of faith and inspiration in Section 1,
A Growing Faith, and in Section 2, This Man Called
Jesus. In Section 3, Penny Poetry, are poems based on
family, love, everyday happenings with a few humorous
verses included to lighten your spirits. Ruth’s poetry is
often rhyming and lyrical and always heartfelt.
Ruth’s poems reflect her faith and realization that God is
worthy of praise and faithful to hear our prayers.
"All There Is"
Most of my previous books of poetry have a section
containing spiritual and inspirational poetry in addition
to sections containing humorous and other secular
poetry. I have often been asked where to find those
spiritual and inspirational poems all in one place. This is
it folks, “All There Is” of my faith based poetry collected
from my previous books and many new lines of verse as
well. Enjoy, and God bless you for asking!
The poems in "Idle Thoughts" are presented
with special thanks to the Poem of the Day
Yahoo group where George Smith helps get
our creative juices flowing each April and
November by sharing daily poetry prompts
from Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog
Without his help, I would write very little and
spend all my time quilting or playing games
on my Kindle. As I have mentioned in other notes,
I am not a driven poet, but a driven quilter and
part time poet! Included here are personal reflections,
thoughts on writing, the world around us, and a giggle
or two to make you smile.
