Inspiration and creation


Unjaded Muse Poetry

Dear readers,

          I am an addict. I crave that sudden spark – that moment of creation where my muse awakens and sets the scene with whispers of a theme and spins me stories I believe in, singing them with feeling and painting pictures in my mind so vividly.

          I long for those times where I do not simply ride a train of thought, but allow my imagination carry me away. Pressing pen to paper, or fingers to keys, I am set free.
It is a high unlike any other.

Maybe I need to settle on a book to read, discover new art, find new music, or simply listen to the silence. I am very introspective which means I tend to overthink things. Perhaps I only need to stop searching and let it come to me instead.

Vintage Stars


Unjaded Muse Poetry

Vintage ’85 stars in a bottle;
it was a very good year.
They have been sitting on a shelf
waiting for a special occasion to shine.

Now they are chilling in the fridge,
with two glasses on the counter top
awaiting their fulfillment.

They are not crystal,
but they are clean and unbroken.

Evening For Roses


I love this writer. I think her use of words are so descriptive that they literally jump off the page. I can hear, taste and see in my minds eye everything she describes. Sometimes when she is reading me one of her newest works of art I do have to have her explain it to me. You see this amazing writer is my daughter Shanna and she constantly blows me away with how talented she is. Yes I am her mom but she really is very talented!

Unjaded Muse Poetry

Favonian perfume
in the darkling gloom
brightens the twilight –

Oh! Sparks taken flight!
Petals ride the wind,
as if freedom sinned.

The little love notes
on the kissed air floats
to my window tonight.

Here we go.


Well world this is my first official post and I must tell you that I am nervous about what I’m going to say.  That’s funny because for most people who know me they would probably say “Dionne never stops talking and she always has something to say”.  I come by it honestly, my mom, dad and one of my two brothers are talkers.  We talk, joke, kid, are sarcastic and loud, yes if we are out somewhere I have head, “Dionne is that you” , from across the room.  No apologies that’s just the way we are, well maybe yes I do apologize, sorry :(.

I have wanted to start a blog for a while but just didn’t think I had the time.  Well I was given the time in the form of having a sick gall bladder, having surgery, now low blood pressure and lots of time at home recovering.  Pinterest has become my best friend who keeps me up until all hours of the night, I never understood how people could spend so much time on the computer until I found Pinterest, now besides spending literally hours sucked into the vortex of this site, I am ruining my hands and wrists because I had carpel tunnel surgery years ago that didn’t work so it hurts to do something repetitive.  Do you think that would stop me, NO I just put on my wrist braces and keep on as long as I can.

I hope to get to know other people with interest that are the same as mine and bear with me as I am new at this blog business.

Smile at someone today 🙂
