My Poem, “The Nature of Jazz”, Now Live at

Besieging me with her exquisiteness was the sea.
Palm trees rustle, rejoicing in a seamless tune.
Anegada sends echoes from an aging graveyard
of polished conch shells gleaming rosy pink.
Caribbean an indigo blue, crafting elusive ripples
in unison as gliding pink flamingos shriek gently.

      4. Thank you dearest Button. Arenโ€™t fireflies like a little gift of love. I saw them in our backyard two nights ago for the first time here. It is the same as when a hummingbird pauses right by you, it feels like God is giving you a kiss on the cheek. May you have sailboats full of days like this. Love and blessings to you dear friend. Honeybun ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

  4. Joni, sweetheart, I keep replying to your comments on my today’s post but I do not think my replies register. When you get a chance let me know if you can see them. I can’t.

    1. Button did you get my response just a few minutes ago, where I talked about this situation with our posts. Let me know. I am receiving yours today right away. I just got this one. Love ๐Ÿ’• honeybun (let me know if you get this) sending comment at 10:57 est

      1. I am sorry. Two days ago you sent me a comment around 5:00 pm EST but I didnโ€™t get it until 15 hours later. I responded the next morning and I got your comment right away. I know it is stressful. I always respond to comments as I know you do as well. I think it may be the amount of traffic. I will let you know the next time it looks like I did not receive your comment until later. Rest assured when I get a comment from you I respond within minutes. Unless of course it is a night owl post or comment. I go to bed by 9:30 or 10:00. Hugs my dear friend. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ

      2. Thank you sweetheart. I do not expect you to answer to the comments I write at 4 am in the morning ๐Ÿ˜Š Do not worry about that. Love you honeybun ๐ŸŒธ

      3. I know my friend. It may be time to chat with WordPress again and let them know you have a new book released and it is imperative that you have great service. Good luck honeybun. Things seem to be working this morning. That is a blessing. Hugs honeybun ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿค—
