Showcase – 'Eugenia Hoffman Poetry' – featured by Susi Bocks in 'The Short of It' (I Write Her)

I Write Her

quilted clouds steel gray
so dreary makes me weary
menace in the skies 


the skies predict moods
blissful thoughts within my grasp
I applaud nature 


bare trees sway wildly
fragile limbs weak and timid
timber plentiful 


noise assaults the air
crows convoked a committee
gossips voice concerns


Eugi’s Causerie – I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.

A Note of Special Thanks – February 2020 Letter by Goff James

Hi, everyone. Here we are again another month has flown by and we’re into February.

Winter lingers but Spring is waiting around the corner. The daffodil spears, in the garden, are already shooting through the ground and some of the early primroses are in bloom.

I would like to express a special note of appreciation to all of you who visit, follow and read my blog.

I also extend a warm welcome to all new visitors, readers and followers.

I take this opportunity to say to you all;

“Many thanks for following Art, Photography, Poetry. I truly appreciate the visits, the follows, the reads, all your positive comments and am extremely grateful for your valued and continued generous support. Thank you.”

Many of you will know that I have been attempting to to redesign the scheduling of posts.

I have already started to introduce some subtle modifications and all appears to be going well. The main difference one will notice is that I have reduced the number of daily postings. This has enabled me to have more time with my many other interests.

The same scheduling format will be followed. This I will review again around April 2020.

Revised Schedule 2020

Art, Photography and Poetry is an Award-Free Blog

Have a great February.

Happy Writing. Happy Reading,Happy Blogging.
