‘Beautiful Things’ published at MasticadoresUSA!

Thank you to editor Gabriela Marie Milton for publishing my poem at MasticadoresUSA today. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement Gabriela has shown me during my time writing poetry on WordPress. I know that Gabriela is very busy professionally, but she always takes the time to offer kind words of support to emerging poets. It is also a huge honour to be a finalist in her Woman: Splendor and Sorrow competition, alongside 12 other hugely talented poets. Gabriela is not judging the competition, but it is inspired by her #1 bestselling poetry collection!

My poem, ‘Beautiful Things’ is very short, so I’m not going to reproduce it here. I encourage you instead to visit MasticadoresUSA to read it and support this fantastic literary venture. I can tell you a little bit about the poem, though: I wrote it at sunrise some time last week. The start of the day is always a magical time for me: a time of hope and promise. I take time to salute the sun whenever it is visible. If you like yoga, or even if you’ve never tried it and you’re looking for a gentle way in, here’s a great 10-minute routine:

A great way to start the day!
