Of Colors and Lullabies and Dreams

One of my goals this summer was to finally publish two of the picture books I have been working on since my sons were babies. Well, as you know, now my sons are in their 20's and I am a grandmother.  The summer will be winding down with this next weekend and Labor Day brings school around here.

So I struggled through the learning curve and figured out what I ended to do with formatting and took a big breath and decided that I love these two story/poems and the pictures I created, and even if some people don't love them, I need to be brave enough to give them a chance.

I am introducing these books here, because I need to stop keeping them a secret,

Tonight, my love, the moon shall rise
the sandman come to dust your eyes.

His sand has heard the dream gull's cries
beside a sea 'neath silver skies.

The pillow cool beneath your head,

all star lit is your feather bed 
which glides the moonbeams like a
sled, above towns which glitter blue and red.

and my second picture book is an introduction to Colors and a celebration of their beauty
 to be read aloud 
and then read independently and studied.

 If I could tell you about Red

I would sing to you of fire
Sweet like cherries
Burning like cinnamon
Smelling like a rose in the sun

Again, thank you for reading, and have a wonderful Autumn
