Nature Washes Me – A Poem

2010 trip to glacier, yellowstone, crazy horse 099 Nature Washes Me

 by Caryn Moya Block

 

The geese honk at the quacking ducks causing a ruckus down by the river.

Up on the mountain the air whispers a welcome as a woodpecker knocks and a raven caws.

The song birds beg for seeds while the deer walk by and nibble on the grass.

I am so thankful to be here, surrounded and held by nature as she washes me clean, and refills my reservoir of creativity.

Pastel Colors – A Poem

Pastel Colors

By Caryn Moya Block

 

I like to see the world in pastel colors

Soft and light, they envelope me in a feeling of safety.

Never is there a harsh word or blaring crisis

Only a gentle breeze and soft whispers of delight.

Here is a sanctuary filled with birdsong and pastries

A place to dance with sprites and sing to the moon.

April National Poetry Month – Poem “Words”

Written Word April is National Poetry Month

So I will share some of the poetry I write when I’m not writing paranormal romance.

Here is my first attempt this month: “Words” by Caryn Moya Block

Words,

Expressions from the heart that flow down my arms and drip onto the page,

Like Water Torture they go on and on.

 

The members of my writing group think I should put this on a T-shirt. What do you think?

Sneak Peek #2:

Katherine Sloane sat at her desk at Isanti, Inc. The rhythmic pinging of her pen hitting the wooden desktop went unnoticed even while it echoed through the office. She stared off into space, her fingers flicking back and forth, thinking about Derek “Red-hawk” Darkwood. If he didn’t come home and make love to her, she would kill him.

Sneak Peek #1:

Derek “Red Hawk” Darkwood retreated to the shadows. The rain fell on his black hair and ran down his neck. He shook in fury over his helplessness, as he watched the woman standing next to a gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery, her tears mixing with the rain. He needed to wrap her in the safety of his embrace. Let her know she wasn’t alone. That she would never be alone again because she had him.

Night Owl Reviews – Destined Magic

  New Review for Destined Magic.

Destined Magic

A Witch Guardian Romance, #1

This is an intriguing story of good magic versus evil magic, love and betrayal, action and suspense that keeps the reader absorbed from beginning to end. Earth witch and Guardian, Garrett Amhurst finds his “Destined One” while investing a case of blood magic. Gabriella Ross is a water witch and will do anything to protect her sister, even step in front of a bullet.

This steady to fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes as the investigation progresses and the Guardians discover that the case is way more complex than they thought.  The author paints the story with vibrant images and details making the reader feel as if they are part to the story and the characters are strong, compelling and easily related to.  Anticipation builds throughout the story as betrayals and magic complicates the Guardian’s investigation and the reader tries to guess just who is behind the evil blood cult who has no respect for life.

The attraction between Gabriella and Garrett radiates from the pages, but the relationship is hindered by family and work related issues that are not so easily swept aside.  The couple may be destined to be together, but the choice is theirs so they have to work out their issues to have any chance of a future together. The reader easily gets caught up in the emotions and passions of the characters as they follow the relationship from its rocky start through the mating ceremony and hot and steamy sex scenes. So when the couple has their happily ever after in their grasp, the reader is on pins and needles when the blood cult threatens their very lives.

The world created by the author is fascinating and intriguing and while some things follow along most tenants of magical stories, the author has added a few surprises and elements of her own to spice things up and that makes it refreshingly different.  I was captivated by the bewitching characters and engrossed in the story to the very end and the epilogue is such a tease, I will definitely be reading this series.
