The Looking Glass

A beautiful Sunday thought!

Richard Rensberry, Author at QuickTurtle Books


I have found some beautiful blogs.

We touch without touching.

We look through the eyes of likeness

and find ourselves

deep within the heart of another.

Poetry takes us there

to the looking glass of souls.

Guest Artist, Glenys Doull of New Zealand

Wonderful and sharing! Nice to meet Gleny and her rich poetry!

Richard Rensberry, Author at QuickTurtle Books

It is my privilege to introduce Glenys as part of our Guest Artist Series.  I believe she is an important poet of our times and for the people.  Unencumbered by the literary judgements of intellectuals, she is part of the movement to return poetry to the people–where it rightfully belongs.  I hope you take the time to enjoy her wonderful skill of imagery and verse.

Sweet Peas

Heavily scented warm
summer air draws in
buzzing bees eagerly
seeking precious nectar.

Sweet peas swarm up
netting on the old shed wall
a perfumed rainbow
tapestry of many hues.

Pale pastels to bright
reds, purples, pinks,
blues and lilacs paint a
masterpiece on old timbers.

Rich pickings for the
school children’s flower show.
