Results of the Reader’s Choice Awards Contest.

Dear All,

Thank you so much for making As Delicate As Snow, a winner in the 2021 TCK Publishing Reader’s Choice Awards Contest! I won the third prize in the romance category for my entry.

It is one of those snow-decked stories that captured my imagination while on a trip to the Rocky Mountains, Colorado in 2016.

I am glad I wrote it and I feel a sense of accomplishment that it had been nominated for an award in the first place, and has now found a place as a winner.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible for me. Your votes meant so much to me. I had 251 votes at the last count. Special thanks to my Linkedin, WordPress, and Twitter friends for their support. I definitely couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you to TCK Publishing too, https://www.tckpublishing.com, for the nomination. As always, it was a last-minute entry having read about the contest on Facebook and thinking if I should give it a shot. I guess the snow worked like a charm.

A Thanksgiving Song

 As she dreams about the gifts that endow nature, man, and all who pass her way, she thinks about love.


What do you say to love that entrusts a heart to you? Would you say that it embodies your sentiments to near madness?
Would you indulge in its truest form of acceptance? Would you remember every moment of its rapture, or every second when the pain of love guides your instincts, to the extent of unbridled affection?


And, be thankful with undying gratitude for a trusting love and its empowerment.


For to feel and to know love is to renounce fear that reigns in an encumbered heart.

Love holds ransom courage.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

I shall be away for a couple of days guys. Be safe, be happy. Have a lovely weekend!

Only You



Only you will make it seem so easy, translucent as crystals, akin to the shimmers of diamonds in a sea of creation.
Only you can take away this part of my dream, So real in me, Like ripples on water, I envision it, only to have it disappear, when it comes into contact with defeatism.

.
In retaliation,


I take this part of my dream, make it so that it becomes real, I shine it till its translucence scintillates, and create a tidal wave, dissolving the ripple till it ceases visibility.
