Poetry Book on its way!

A new poetry book on its way.

Ripple Poetry

Above is a sneak peek of the art works in response to my latest poetry book project – Illuminations: 19 Poems and 1 Story.

This is a collaboration between Gumbootspearlz Press and  IVI Designs.

It features several meaningful art works in a doodle style by Ruha and Minaira Fifita and 19 poems and 1 story, by June Perkins.

‘The incredible intuitiveness of June Perkins takes the reader on a flight through spirituality, art, illumination and meditation in this insightful gathering of poetry and story. If we allow our spirit to soar to the heights she beckons, we might all reach new beginnings and destinies. Permit the magic of ‘The Artist’s Riddle’ and ‘Dust’, just as an entree, to glide you into the ‘Slipstream’ of what may lie beyond your own consciousness.

A hugh thank you to one of the editors Nicky and the rest of the team, for sharing this work.

You can preview the first part of the story and see the delightful illustration for it by Suzie Mason here KOOKIE PREVIEW

Rowhani School Showing their Love for the Environment!

Images from Julian Bluett- Rowhani Baha’i School in Vanuatu, showing their concern for the environment.

 

Today I am thinking particularly of all those  youth and children in the Pacific showing their love for the environment.

By canoe,  by dirt roads through the jungles, by banners of love, joy, and unity, they add their voices to all those in the world.

Even a big problem becomes small if all care.

Just because the Pacific is few in people doesn’t mean they aren’t important to our whole world, and that their voices shouldn’t be heard.

Love to all!

Listen to our youth and change the world with them for the future.
