About

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”

— John Burroughs

I live in sunny Queensland, Brisbane, Australia where winters are beautiful but summers can be somewhat unbearable. I have been writing for a while now and my blog has helped me to grow and develop my writing. Poetry is everywhere and I write to capture snippets of life as I see it as well as memories. I love nature and the simple things in life and this is often reflected in my poetry. I’ve always been a dreamer and writing allows me to dream. Afterall, where would we be without a dream.

  1. Yes, a lovely blog! You have a good eye for color and design, as well as expression. I’m enjoying your visits to Poetic Bloomings VERY MUCH.

    And thank you for your kind words regarding the loss of my cousin (at Across the Lake, Eerily). So sweet of you!

  5. Hi Norma,

    Im looking for a translator! Someone has left me a comment on my poetry blog in Italian! I think it may be someone who follows you. Anyway, I wonder if you would be willing to translate it for me. Its from ventisqueras and it says

    ventisqueras commented on The Journey Begins…

    le tue parole mi hanno molto commossa, la Poesia da voce all’anima, profuma col candore del giglio e con la mitezza delle viole
    che ti sia sempre vicina accompagnandoti di dolcezza e amore nel tuo viaggio
    un grande abbraccio

    I hope you dont mind my asking you but I dont know anyone else who would be able to do it. Many thanks

    Christine xx

    • Hi Christine,
      I’m not fluent but I think this is the translation.

      Your words really touched me. Your poems are from the soul, scented with the candor of lillies and the meekness of violets. May you always be near the company of sweetness and love on your journey. A huge hug.

      Beautiful words for a beautiful lady.

      Norma

  6. My goodness, what a lovely comment. Very humbling.

    It’s strange how these things happen sometimes just when we are in need of a little help. I was just saying to another blogging friend how her words had brightened a very “down” day for me. And here are some more. Now I need to allow myself this “off” time without becoming cross with myself. It will pass 🙂

    Thanks very much for the translation
    Xx
