Muse with Coffee – A Book Blog

Posts Tagged ‘blog


 

A big Hello and a warm Welcome to everybody visiting this blog in the summer of August and beyond.  It has truly been a while since I have updated this personal blog of mine. Reason? Since many of you know by now from the content of my blog that I am an author and a poet, so I am involved in writing projects most of the time. However, being involved with this blog and writing down my thoughts here, lets me feel connected to my friends and visitors who visit this blog at their own leisure. It feels wonderful to be a part of such a vibrant and diverse community of bloggers and writers who offer words of advice, information, knowledge and a little peek into their exceptional talents and works. So, I salute all my friends and visitors of this global diaspora for the talents and the enthusiasm they possess.
Of late, I have been travelling to various natural locations, and searching for themes to write my next Ebook, which would be my 2nd Poetry Ebook that would be released very soon in the coming months . I like to experiment with various themes in poetry, and currently fantasy, realistic and speculative themes and story telling have caught my fancy. So, you can expect to be in a world of fantasy realms and at the same time find your feet on the realistic grounds of life in my next Ebook.

Presently 2 of my Ebooks have been released. One is a short story collection named 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life which is a contemporary fiction inspirational and intriguing read.

The second Ebook is named MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life
and you can see the Ebook cover image at the top of this post.

What is so special about this Ebook? Well, first of all this Ebook contains a collection of 41 poems and 1 article which draw their inspiration about the themes from Nature, friendship and Life.

Tell me, how do you feel when you happen to walk through a vast green field, full of wildflowers, dandelions, tulips with a pleasant breeze under a blue sunny sky? Do you love nature? Do you yearn to sit under the shadows of giant trees and just pass your time leisurely and feel the essence of Mother Nature around you?

In the materialistic world of today, these thoughts and feelings may be a distant dream. But, I believe that connecting ourselves at least once in a while with Mother Nature could just do the trick of healing us from within, and bestow us with renewed enthusiasm and energy to see life in goodness and face life as it is and how it is.

My book MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life which is available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Apple iTunes, Sony, Diesel and Kobo stores tries to take a peek into Nature’s miracles, her beauty, and into the depths of vivid imagination. A few words and lines of happiness, love, and respect for Friends and Life. The Ebook is colourful with a splash of original nature photographs taken during my travels to a diverse number of locations across Europe.

If you would like to know more about my Ebook – here is the SPECIAL OFFER for you:

Throughout AUGUST until 2nd September 2012, MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life will be available at Smashwords Stores for only $0.99 i.e 99 cents by using the Coupon code DU75H.

Smashwords book link –  https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/121492

I am very happy that my Ebook has found its worthwhile place in the hands of interested readers who have chosen to not only read, but also review this Poetry e-book at their own choice.

I would like to highlight one of the reviews here on this blog, which has also moved me. I encourage interested readers to review my book once you read it, as it will inspire me to pursue and publish more diverse works of poetry in future.

Here goes the review :

Review by: Jeff Dawson on Aug. 07, 2012 :  star star star star
The first poem Myth of Urvi is guaranteed to please the followers of Tolkien and others. It is the first mythical one I have ever read. I would definitely target the younger crowd to draw attention. Very nice.

The rest of the works paint a wonderful adventure through life. We’ve all felt the emotions as we travel through our journey of life. Very well done.

Almost forgot, I enjoyed the smattering of pictures through the work. They helped set the tone and allowed for reflection.

I found few personal favorites: Dear Friend, Do not Change, The band of Friendship and last but not least, A child in you. This one reminded me of my dad. He passed at 84 but up until his departure he always had this childish gleam in his eyes. I believe it was his view of life (to never grow old) that kept him surrounded by great friends and company. He is missed.

Thank you for the wonderful thoughts.

ENJOY LIFE

_____________

Seasons come, seasons go,

Time flies by, yet it holds,

Memories of love, memories of friends,

Cherished and cajoled,

In its spectral folds;

Time spent, never returns…

Bitter-sweet memories,

From this kaleidoscope we learn–

Life is a journey, with

Twists and turns,

With joy and sorrow,

Laughter and fun.

Life seems empty,

Without friends and love,

Life seems bleak,

Without the ones we love,

So, care and share

Your joy and tears,

With your friends and peers,

With no fear.

For, our life is short,

Yet it is so endless,

‘Coz even after we’re long gone,

Life will just..move on…

Thanks for stopping by this post 🙂
