So today was National Poetry Day here in Trinidad and to commemorate this awesome day, The Circle of Poets of TT, hosted their annual celebration at NALIS, Port of Spain. This year was really special as our  Poet Laureate of Trinidad & Tobago, Mr. Paul Keens-Douglas was present and shared a bit of his work with us. This was truly enjoyable for me. Paul has such a bold eloquence about him as he takes command of the stage to deliver poetry that is witty, informative, expressive and flavoured with our colourful Trini dialect. We were also treated with amazing poetry performances by Dennis Joseph, Kenneth "Bro'ken" De Peana
Celeste Peters, Michelle Scipio, Kevin Grant, Patricia Dalrymple and Gillian Viechweg.

I made some new friends tonight in the Circle of Poets and hope to meet with these talented poets  again at their bi monthly meetings. 

One beautiful line that stayed with me from Paul's speech, "We share a moment together, frozen in time... this moment we will never have again"

Thanks to all you wonderful people at NALIS and The Circle of Poets for sharing the moment of this evening...poetry and laughs, wine and cheese and of course the interchange of encouragement writers like us need :)

Me... with Paul Keens-Douglas

I hope you readers are excitedly anticipating it too!

Of all the characters my imagination has conjured up thus far, Michael's character in Summer Moments has been the most fun bringing to life. 

Readers will soon fall in love with his charming yet sometimes hilarious personality!

Here's an excerpt from Summer Moments that shows Michael's playful, fun loving side☺️

" The day had seemed to drag for Alex as she happily anticipated the evening ahead. She had tried busying herself with chores around the house and very slowly, the time came around for her date with Michael.
  She began dressing, having chosen a pair of Levi’s and a black sleeveless shirt with neon coloured patches of pink, yellow and green and white tennis shoes. She had no idea where Michael was taking her, but she thought it best to dress for the sake of comfort and not style.
  She combed her long hair into a single braid and just as she was applying some apricot lip gloss to her lips, she heard a knock at the front door.
  When she got downstairs and opened the door, there was Michael standing on the porch, dressed in Levi’s too and a white V-neck T-shirt. He had a bunch of flowers in his hand, fresh dirt dropping from the rooted stems and a broad grin on his face.
  Alex  looked at the flowers, recognizing them instantly. Zinnias! Her eyes immediately went over to the flower bed at the front of the yard.
  “Um Michael? Are those my Zinnias?” she asked him. He looked at the flowers in his hand as he shook the rest of the dirt off the stems.
  “I was walking up the driveway and noticed the flowers planted in front when suddenly, it hit me: this was our first date and I should be bringing you flowers.
So I dug up a few and,” he held them out to Alex, “here you are!”
  “I see,” Alex said, taking the flowers from him. “Well Michael, why don’t you have a seat inside whilst I go replant my flowers.”
  “Sure thing, hon,” he smiled and walked passed her through the doorway.
  “Idiot,” she muttered.
  “I heard that!” he called out, laughing.
  “Crazy idiot,” she muttered again, but there was a smile on her lips, a joy in her heart and inside, her emotions were singing. She just knew she loved him more.

Moments Shared

In keeping with the inspired theme of moments
         for my upcoming Romance novel 'Summer Moments',
         here are a few quotes by other writers
         that I found and loved and can now share with you😊

"It's a lot easier to say when something ended rather than when it began.
 Most of us can recognize the end from a mile away, but the beginning 
 always slips up on us, lulling us into thinking what we're living through
 is yet another moment, in yet another day."Steve YarbroughSafe from the Neighbors

"I only ever asked for the moment, but you seem to think I asked 
  for more." Dominic Riccitello

"At the end, one didn't remember life as a whole but just as a string of moments."
David LevienCity of the Sun

"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough." 
Rabindranath Tagore

What of the moments Michael and Alex shared in the summer of '88? ... from my soon-to-be published romance novel Summer Moments... read the poem below😊

How long is a moment?
             A moment is said to be (on average) 90 seconds long.
For me,
a moment can be an entire lifetime
... because
                 that moment is what gives us beautiful memories
that pummels the heart to keep on beating
consumes the mind throughout the years
and may be, the very last thought at our dying breath.

  This is what inspired the story of 
Michael & Alex (short for Alexandra... read her story here.)
and the beautiful moments they shared in the Summer of '88.

Look out for my upcoming Romance "Summer Moments"... when moments make memories  June 2018

In the meantime...

Why not try one of these sensational books by these amazing authors!
