A poem from my blog.
I decided to post it as part of the announcement that my new CD with Aberjhani is now in the marketplace, available at I thank all AD members, readers and authors, who've sincerely supported my growth as a writer here at the Den, and shed upon you now a multitude of heavenly blessings. Thank you.

Does our love stand?
Do you love me as you should?
Do I cradle your heart in mine as
a woman in love would?

Have you the strength to carry me
when sorrows drench my heart?
Am I that wind beneath your wings
when loss rips you apart?

Come rest yourself, my love,
upon the recline of my soul.
Let us merge our longings
and with kisses be made whole.

Click RIGHT HERE for my new CD with Aberjhani, The Goddess and The Skylark, Dancing Through the Word Labyrinth."

Those who enjoy Aberjhani's work and mine will appreciate the recitations, the music by Mark Rockeymoore, as well as the poetry itself.

You wrote this straight from your heart, Nordette. The candid nature of your words, your ability as a writer to let yourself go to such place of vulnerability, have touched me beyond belief.

Oh joy! The CD is finally available. Now, I'll have to rush right out and get a copy for my kitty. I don't know why, but my Maine Coon, CeCe, loves your voice, Nordie. When I've played your spoken word on my PC, she immediately comes over and sits by the speakers and listenes carefully to every word. Nordette, have you tapped into the feline frequency? I wonder how CeCe will react to Aberjhani's voice?

I wish that Your released CD reaches the market positively and hit the golden disk mark before the end of November.

The deep beauty of this poem is only further evidence of the blessed nature of THE GODDESS AND THE SKYLARK, DANCING THROUGH THE WORD LABYRINTH project. What we actually accomplished in partnership with the Texas Genius known as Mark “Rahkyt” Rockeymoore surpassed anything I had conceived or dreamed. Regardless of what the CD does by way of sales--which I hope will be in the millions--I will for the rest of my life be grateful for what we have already achieved artistically, friendship-wise, and spiritually through this work.
