My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

It Makes the World Go Round :<)



It’s the biggest “gamble” most of us will ever take.

And for some of us, we roll the dice a time or two. 😉

Through the good days and the bad.

The lean times and the sad.

It’s nice to know that someone truly cares.

To wake up, wrapped in a warm embrace.

Eyes, that look beyond the surface to the center of our being.

On our side, without question or compromise.

Love: it makes the world go round. 🙂

Romance: what makes it all worthwhile.♥

I am a freelance writer, poet, artisan, avid book/product reviewer and award-winning cookbook author. I recently published the second volume of my new vegetarian cookbook series: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 2): Simply, Super, Supper Soups and my inspirational, pro-active and fun book/eBook, all about aging well: Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well. I am also the author of: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 1): Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker. Third Chapter, Second Chance (a mid-life romance). Not Just for Vegetarians: Delicious Homestyle Cooking, the Meatless Way and the poetry collections: Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons (Volumes I, II and III) and My Poetic Path. These titles are available at all the Amazon sites. When I'm not writing or creating new recipes, I love to knit and crochet; usually with some "help" from feline friend, the yarn-loving Mr. Cheddar! 🐱 With Blogger, I also host my new author's site: Geraldine Helen Hartman and my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews. I hope you will visit often and enjoy all of my sites.😂 Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing You a Happy Week and Namaste!
