My Heroes

You have to grab a good time wherever you can, an unknown little fact, I use to read comic books when I was a kid, I could devour them. Well the benefits of being a younger sister was, there was plenty to read. Okay, so it wasn't cultural or educational, but it sure was fun on those lazy hot days of summer when your not daydreaming watching clouds go by.....My favorite was the metaphoris man.. .. simply because I thought he was a gentlemen hero, not to mention cute.... sorry Batman you did come in second with a great ZIP , POW , WHAM, CRASH and well who could not love wonder woman... and the ideal amazon world of women, yeah we know, we rule. lol Just to think in my day comic books were the ultimate enemy to a parent, and now they have taken second place to video games... nothing like fantasy to make your mind work..


The ribfest had great weather and I met up with some old friends as well as making new. We had a huge turn out from the local resturants and Damions took first place this year, but all the ribs were great including those from TGIF, Apple Bees, Texas road house.. etc I appreciate those who continue to purchase poetry and skincare products,but above it was a good time, wonderful music and good spirits.
We are preparing for the next event and hope to see a good turn out.....
if not don't forget to look online for the new line of poetry products that are ready for the quickly approaching holidays at and We are pleased to be able to bring you poetry from the heart in the Rachel Charlotte Miller Collection, where something new is always happening.... and a special thank you to the Scotts Settlement house for their wonderful hospitality and good luck to the new administrator.

Watching Clouds go by..

Lay your blanket upon the grass of shades of many colors green and gaze into the clouds and tell me what you see.. I saw the hell that lingers
in the clouds and then the puffy white one that lowered itself to the ground. I chose the hand that reached out with care to journey through the darkness and bring your love so near.
Each arts festival brings with it a new faces, new challenges and a bit of excitement. I woke up at 4:30 and for the first time I sit here prepared and extra early. I hadn't done many last minute things and I have already gone through the different phases of preparation... I never realized how important it is to like what you see in the mirror. It's not about the physical as much as it is about liking your inner self. You hear allot of jokes about inner beauty,but there is allot more to it then people realize.
Each event brings with it new stories, some I see the intermingling of issues that we all meet up with at one time or another in our lives. So common are the stories, that only the cast changes.
I found the pedestal of brass horses unattached and laying on my desk. Disappointed it wasn't something I wanted to rid my desk of , so I had them repaired. The soldering that holds them together makes then stand strong , more so then the were originally. I looked at them and it made me think of personalities and how respect and trust builds a stronger bond to hold us up through times of difficulty.
The picture I posted of clouds is interpreted in many ways.The person who sent it to me saw a " heart " and I saw in it a "demon" My response was that the interpretation was extremely different because they "lived with love and I lived with fear. "
Fear to me is nothing more then the pre-examination of a set of consequences. Sometimes the predetermination prevents us or slows the process of growth. When your a small child your taught not to go near a city street as a car might not see you and be able to stop in time. From toddler years on we are taught what we shouldn't do to provide a safer
environment. A certain measure of fear gives us food for thought a period of time to reason. Though if we stand still to long we miss opportunity. There is a very small window of time for which we are responsible to make a choice. If fear be the guide, would we ever get to the other side of the street or would our overly cautious attitude keep us at the edge always guessing when would be the right opportunity? Little lessons from childhood that show up later in life.Here we stand in the middle of our life with choices , how we react, the timing all are crucial
in our development.

I saw her in my dreams and then she disappeared,
locked behind the walls with her long golden hair.

The room she stood was still and lace and ribbon
lay, in a room of perfection where she couldn't
even play.

I saw the vision many times and heard the sounds
of silent cries and everyday she repeated each
step just the same.

Standing at the window, barely does she move
until I get closer and then she fades away to

Why does she come to me? What message does
she bring?Help me to unlock the mystery,
and set her soul free.

Out of the mouth of babes...I had a few years back encouraged my daughter to read various writers work including poets. As we informally discussed what she was reading and her interpretation, she said " their work is just words on paper and yours flows with emotion" She was nine years old at the time. I said do not ever say you like something because I wrote it. "She said I am only saying what is the truth."
Interpretation, I realized how widely interpreted the words could be, depending on a persons culture, societal positioning and of course experience or lack of it. Traveling through out the North East, I found that really very little divided us as emotional beings, other then our own personal response to the trials of life.
The experiences that feed on emotion are not about the consumption of life, but more like the processing of it. Each day we wake with the ability to reinvent the moment.We in turn become proactive in our positioning in life rather then a parasite that just leeches on, always taking without giving in return.
Denial an unconscious survival mechanism? It is possible that we deny our emotions, because we are taught that it weakens us. I was told by a friend years back, " it is perfectly alright to accept our inner emotions, but not to allow them control over us."
A sensitivity to joy and sadness, love and hate, gives a certain view of life that is overlooked by many. Life is simplicity and only complicated by man.
I fell in love with a lie, felt my heart live and die, soar above the stars, just to dance in your arms.

It's a Beautiful Feeling

It's a beautiful feeling, to have you beside me,
to never feel loneliness and to explore within
a dream.

The water raging moves downstream, mountain
cold and warm with memories. The ones that you
and I have made come true,the ones from my
heart to you.

Beautiful the rock lay, each very different in their
own way. Your holding me up and I you, no slipping
on natures bed, because we the bonded strength
of two.

Your love touched my soul

Felt it in the warm breeze that you blew my way,
felt it in the kiss that made it in my heart to stay.
Love exist for some in a form of dreams,but your
love touched my soul and there came reality.
Felt it in the sunshine warm upon my face, felt it
in the darkness when fear was chased.
Love exist for some in a form of dreams, but your
love touched my soul an there came reality.
Heard it in the song that woke me in the morn, heard
it the very moment that love was born.
Love exist for some in a form of dreams, but your
love touched my soul and there came reality.
I saw it in the heavens and the again in your heart,
the reflection of love creating a spark.
Love exist for some in a form of dreams, but your
love touched my soul and there came reality....
