Sometimes I believe that there is an energy, or that there are some sort of threads in the universe that bring persons together in love even if for just moments. I wrote this poem for/about a woman within a fairly loose group of quite fine artists to which I belong, several years ago. She … her icon simply inspired the poem. We have never met. We were not even close. But circumstances made us close in a strange manner, but close none the less, perhaps as artists together. I never showed her this. Her Name is Laura mercer and she is on Facebook. We are connected and I am Liz Rice-Sosne on Facebook. I shall now for I have always felt that it WAS her. Initially I did this with all different sized fonts and letters dark and not so dark along with symbols. I cannot seem to do this here upon WP.
Laura Star Rain
She has dark moments …
She is one
… toying with her flames. Turning the knobs
This way and that … that way and this….off then on……………..
She is all about
color. She must have it.
It … fuels her.
Strokes of sensuous color … watery … rain from stars.

barely spring now
like fresh magnolia buds
the heart can refresh
So now, that is what is taking place, now that my heart is refreshing, moving onwards and hopefully upwards, it is time for change in my blogging habits. I have known for a short amount of time that this must be so. However, I cannot take credit for the changes that you will see in my blog (that is once I master the technicalities). I have been working on these technicalities all day and yet, they go un-mastered. Never mind. I wish to acknowledge and thank a fellow writer, friend and mentor to many, Jaime Dedes for the changes that I am making. Her blog can be found here:
1) I will be turning off the comments section. This will allow me more time to read and enjoy your work. This will also give me more time to tighten up my own writing.
2) I will create a page where you are welcome to communicate with me.
3) I will be going by my given name: Liz Rice-Sosne (this is needless to say, my idea).
