Come sit with me where

the world is all warm breeze

and blue birds calling.

We’ll forget the bramble

and the cry of the wild wolf.

Let spring go on and on.

The universe can register

a complaint with someone who cares.

You and I will follow the gumdrop trail,

edged with lace. We’ll disappear

into breakfast at midnight and some delectable sin.

We’ll tango to the radio. Let the fire tag along...

I fear this review may be lacking. I hope to do The Shadow justice, but my time is limited of late. Perhaps. I can write a more in-depth review later. I will say for now. Reynard has wowed me again. His prose just get stronger. His writing would put ...more

“Edges
I am a child throwing rocks into the stream.
Challenging the rushing water.
Raising my fist and daring fate to do it worst.
I am a dancer in the waves of the ocean.
Swaying in time with the tide.
Pirouetting, the current my only friend.
I am the sun, rising across the canyon
Ascending, and shinning down.
Giving the illusion of perception and motion.
I am thoughts like a rolling river.
Water cascading over the rocks of my soul.
Shaping, forming, conforming.
I am the peace of the rain forest.
Basking in solitude
Tranquil, serene, transfixing angles.
Reflecting from within.
Dripping and dropping. Shaking it off.
I am the dust of the galaxy.
Yearning to know itself.
I am the wind.
Wandering. Searching.
A storm brewing from within.”
Tosha Michelle, Confessions of a Reformed Southern Belle.: A Poet's Collection of Love, Loss, and Renewal

“To deny equality to one is to deny equality for all.
We won’t find joy by misplacing our unhappiness onto others.
Love cannot be defined, assigned or mitigated.It’s not something to be controlled or dictated.
Love is uncontrollable and limitless.”
Tosha Michelle, Confessions of a Reformed Southern Belle.: A Poet's Collection of Love, Loss, and Renewal

“It is only through love, tolerance, humility and the understanding of our own fragility that we can begin to find our humanity and, in turn, extend that humanity to others.”
Tosha Michelle

“She was so Southern that she cried tears that came straight from the Mississippi, and she always smelled faintly of cottonwood and peaches.”
Sarah Addison Allen, Garden Spells

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

“Sometimes goodness doesn't tell everything it knows. Sometimes goodness waits for the appropriate time and does the best it can with what it has.”
Sylvain Reynard, Gabriel's Inferno

“Only on the Internet can a person be lonely and popular at the same time.”
Allison Burnett, Undiscovered Gyrl
