I'd love to expand this poem for a children's book but unfortunately I wouldn't know where to begin.
I do like writing narrative poems, some have an adult twist such as Boy what a Lady! and the Princess and the Frog (which needs a rewrite). I'm working on several storylines at the moment but it takes me a while to get them onto paper.
Thanks for your interest and if I did ever get a poem published I'd know where to come for an illustrator.

I'm just replying to your reply on the Christmas Turkey poem if you do decide to give it a try and need an illustrator
I would definitely be interested in doing some illustrations for you if you decide to make a children's book from this poem
have a think about it and get back to me
I think it would be a fabulous children's book
no harm in trying x😊

I'm still getting the hang of the WOL website- but I think it was in relation to my "Turkey in sheep's clothing" poem. I wouldn't know how to get started with an illustrated book . However I'm attempting to set up a Youtube channel and record my voiceover with pictures etc. Early days but hopefully I'll get there soon. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my profile x

Hey Devon! I've been browsing your work and really enjoy what I've read so far. "She Calls It Sorrow" is a great story and reminds me of some of the people I've crossed paths with in life. It would sound great spoken slam-style with jazz in the background. Looking forward to reading more from you. Take care --- J. Zane

Hi Julia, I have to say I'm a bit blown away by your sample and first poem, "Room." I don't really know what to say, other than I've rarely been touched by written words in quite the same way.
I don't think I've ever added anyone as a favourite from one poem before, brilliant, painful but brilliant.

Thank You, Do.RoThY, for your kind words. I enjoy what I have read so far in your blogs. Inevitable reality sums many things up and reminds me to recognize and accept change (sometimes whether I like it or not!) and to realize it is just the "cycle of inevitability" as you state. It is not always easy to avoid stubbornness in these rapidly changing times. Also, I read your Bio and best of luck to you in finding your twin flame! ---J. Zane

Much enjoyed your use of the word 'tempered'. I do clearly remember 'tempered steel' and the 'well-tempered clavier'. My mother, in fact, used that word 'to temper' often. I had forgotten. I have used it myself, but not in recent years. And yet, it is one of the finest words I know. Almost a philosophy in itself.
'my' crutch, as opposed to 'a' crutch?

Mae, you do make me smile. You're like an old fashioned tea kettle on the high boil.
When I was a young teacher, sharing a flat with a fellow teacher, I put our kettle on for teatime - and then forgot it - utterly. I think I was playing a favourite record, loudly, and probably dancing around with complete concentration. Spaced out!
It exploded! And the cloud that filled the apartment, plastered the ceiling and the windows, our books and our furniture, was just awful!
With such intense energy that you have, don't forget to turn down, or even off, sometimes. Don't explode.

Hi Martin, thank you so much for your kind words on 'Arrival'. I was asked by my sister to write a poem concerning immigrants/ immigration but given how things are so polarised at the moment, I have tried to be very careful in my framing. Granted, less so in the last stanza. 😂
Anywho, thanks again,

Your work is so good! Thanks for your response to 'Pink Dress'.
Do check that tiny typo in your bio 'its currents are cruel'. (just because you're so good!)
Now that I'm better, I'll try to catch up with more of your work. With much pleasure, I'm sure.
