The Sunday Muse #172

 


Good morning Muse friends!  I am so glad you joined us this week because I have something wonderful to share with you today!   One of our amazing Muse hosts, Shay AKA Fireblossom, has just published a new book of poetry called Gypsy Bird Cage.  You can click on the title to see it on Amazon.  As most of you already know, her poetry is absolutely amazing and the world has been waiting, so I am utterly delighted to share this news with you all!   My copy is on the way! 

Well in the spirit of celebration lets get started everyone; write/share/visit others/ and get inspired by amazing published poets!

Have fun everyone!

💝Carrie

  10. Btw, to anyone who bought my new book, there is one typo. The title to one poem should be "Lilies on the Altar", not "Lilie".

  18. I thought I wouldn't write to this one, but the stunning image kept nudging me to write something so in the end I tried out a new form.

    Big congratulations Shay! I'm in awe by everyone who manages such a project. Your writing in powerful, beautiful, emotional. As poetry should be.
