I know I’ve made a lot of empty promises and delays in this project, which is misleading because it is something so dear to my heart. But there have been life hiccups and unexpected formatting issues (one just last night that came to my attention and pushed back the release by a day!)
Needless to say, this project has been on the drawing board far longer than I anticipated.
But like all good things…sometimes you just have to love it (warts and all) and let it go. So, without further fanfare, I invite you to purchase and peruse “No Small Things: The Beautiful Stuff Poetry Anthology 2019-2020”, available later today at Amazon.
Here is the link:
No Small Things Poetry Anthology
Thank you so much for your patience and support for all of the great poets who contributed. Share this around and help spread the love for artistic endeavor. Sometimes this life can be so ugly and harsh, we have to nurture the beautiful no matter how small.
If you are interested in purchasing a signed copy directly from me, please feel free to contact me via The Beautiful Stuff contact page or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Until then, Happy Reading.

Today, K. W. will be wowing you with a poem that settles into a special corner of my heart and it’s love of Autumn. Enjoy!
I watched the aspens turn today
And witnessed nature’s majesty.
Orange and gold replaced the leaves
Of green, and leapt from tree to tree.
The rising sun poked shafts of light
Down through an emerald canopy.
I lay beneath those dark scarred trunks
Of white, and lounged in reverie.
I watched the colors of autumn
Slowly replace where green should be.
The hues revealed the steady march
Of time, no more a mystery.
Deep in that secret mountain glade
The pigments were a potpourri.
Above, I heard a rustling sound
Of leaves, and something stirred in me.
The leaves were changing, Fall was here,
I felt the warmth of Summer flee.
Watching the aspens turn, I thought
Of love, and gave my heart to thee.
