The poems in "Idle Thoughts" are presented with special thanks to the Poem of the Day Yahoo group where George Smith helps get our creative juices flowing each April and November by sharing daily poetry prompts from Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog ( http://blog.writersdigest.com/poeticasides) . Without his help, I would write very little and spend all my time quilting or playing games on my Kindle. As I have mentioned in other notes, I am not a driven poet, but a driven quilter and part time poet! Included here are personal reflections, thoughts on writing, the world around us, and a giggle or two to make you smile. The inspirational/spiritual poems written this year are included in the book “All There Is” published in November 2012.
