Last weekend, I attended a Vision Tree Retreat with Openings Life Coaching online, with a group of ladies from the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan. (I’ve glassed the collage, and I had a hard time getting a decent photo without reflections. Sorry about that). Anyway, a vision tree is a way to manifest your dreams and goals into reality for the year.
As you can see, I have many adventurous plans for this year. I want to finish my Reiki classes, get our bathrooms redone in our house, write, and attain some of my spiritual goals. I have summer gardening plans too!
At the top of my list is the FIRST Word Craft poetry contest, with paid prizes from the proceeds of the Word Weaving Poetry Journal. 👏🏻 🎉 ✍🏻
I need help from our poetic community to plan this contest. We need to find judges and lock down a theme, plus decide on a syllabic form (s). I would like this contest to begin on June 21, 2022, which is the summer solstice! Please let me know in the comments if you can help me plan this exciting event. Thank you. ❤

It is considered a color that, compared to the rest of the colors, provokes the strongest emotions. Red is considered powerful. The fastest and the most luxurious cars in the world are most often painted in red; people that are famous and important are usually given the red carpet treatment; women that wear red are considered much more attractive and passionate than women that don’t favor this shade. Color red makes people feel dominant and powerful, and it can boost their self esteem. Red is a bold color, which makes one stand out from the crowd and influence the way others see them.”
“The red personality type
People who favor color red are extroverted, open, enthusiastic. They live their life to the fullest.
They are optimistic, strong, confident. They are not afraid to stand up for themselves. They are not easily scared and they can be quite competitive…” READ MORE BELOW…colorpsychology.org/red
So… all of this leads me to a cinquain:
Ready, Set, Go…
