Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I don’t think you know me at all.
Whilst you reflect the layer you see
Please realise there is more to me.
You cannot hope that frame and skin
Will let you read what lies within.
I’m fire and passion, soul and art,
Untamed spirit, giving heart.
And maybe beauty isn’t mine
(I do not match the term defined)
But flesh alone will not speak for me;
I’m a book, come read my story.

We’re going to have to work at this
For now and evermore.
But you and me, what we can be,
It’s worth it, I am sure.
Worth It – Wedding Poem Quote by Ms Moem.
Hello Autumn. You’ve chilled the air,
Slowed the grass, stripped trees bare,
Crisped their leaves, skeletons exposed
And let Jack Frost come bite our toes.
First frost, first snow, hard rain, yet sun!
Experience weather, every one.
Your flame gives way to Winter’s grey;
Thank you Autumn for your display.
Note To Autumn is a rhyming poem about Autumn by Ms Moem.
The Thing About Love…
The thing about love,
though it can’t be seen,
it always leaves a mark
in all the places it has been.
The Thing About Love is a short 4 line poem, written by Ms Moem.

What quotes inspire you when you need to call on your strength?
The Love Of A Child
They’re not looking for perfection
You’re their parent; their all.
They just want to know they’re loved
And that you’ll come when they call.
They don’t look at you in horror
When you haven’t brushed your hair.
In fact, they don’t care what you look like;
They just love that you are there.
They look to you for answers,
Perhaps a million questions a day
Because you’re their source of wisdom
So it matters what you say.
It’s not about status
Or diamonds and gold.
It’s about genuine smiles
And a warm hand to hold.
And they look to you for kindness;
For unconditional love.
You are mum. You are dad.
You are more than enough!

I promise I’ll be there for you with each beat of my heart.
I promise I’ll be there for you in times both bright and dark.
I promise I’ll be there for you when you just want to talk.
I promise I’ll be there for you by your side as we walk.
I promise I’ll be there for you no matter where we are.
I promise I’ll be there for you. I swear it on the stars.
I promise I’ll be there for you, I promise, I am sure.
I promise that I love you and I shall forever more.

54 days until Christmas! Yikes!
Where has the year gone?
Best get co-ordinating my Christmas shopping lists and also sort out what crafty projects I will be indulging in.
My youngest daughter has already put her votes in for a wall of snowflakes. I’m quite partial to a bit of papercraft, so that’s a winner.
I also want to make some of my own wrapping paper this year. Well, not make the paper, but buy a roll of Kraft paper / packing paper, and then fancy it up with some bespoke calligraphy.
I also plan to make some Christmas cards for my closest people. It’s something that I used to do with my mum and I think it would be nice to re-visit those feelings. I surely do miss her.
Anyway, before this blog post meanders off into a maudlin direction, I will sign off and get list making!!
Are you planning any Christmas crafts?
Absolutely honoured to see my poetry included in this gorgeous wedding calligraphy installation.
The words are a snippet of my wedding poem called ‘I Promise’, which is available as a video on youtube.
The writing, design and styling by Suzanne Oddy is just glorious! Check out my post on my facebook page where I have shared Suzanne’s post which includes her video of the installation!
Love love love!
She set out with intention;
Thought she knew the way to go
But as she wandered clumsily
The winds of change did blow.
They took her like a feather
And she floated on their breeze
Soaring so far above the forest
She could barely see the trees.
At first, she was astounded
Just how far she went each day
But eventually she realised
She’d completely lost her way.
Lost is a short poem by English poet, Ms Moem.
