The Victorian Cage

This is the first of my books. It's unlike the other two in that it could be classified as a young adult, but it's okay for adults, too. And just remember. If you read me..

After endless days of relentless rain, I was met with an unexpected and magical treat this morning...



After The Rain....

Lush greenery sun-studded with a thousand glistening stars.

Luxuriant Lilacs wafting their sweet Springtime fragrance to the breeze.

 rain-flattened Tulips offer me a wild riot and explosion of rain-soaked hues
magnificent and vivid as an unexpected Rainbow.

Masses of Bluebells carefree once more are playful within dancing sunbeams.

I kick off my shoes luxuriating in the rain-drenched grass as I wander my garden of amazing transformation,
blissfully absorbing Nature's fulsome beauty, bounty and eternal energy

Ah this makes me long for spring, right here in the middle of winter in Ohio where we climb to reach a frigid 5 degrees. A beautiful write.

What a blessing to have our senses in order enjoy all that you have described to us within this piece. Ah, the lilacs. Nothing can surpass their fragrance for me. As a child, I would voluntarily go out and pick lilacs off the bush in our yard for my mother. She, in turn, would put them in a vase, replenish their broken spirit with cold water, and the fragrance of lilacs would eminate throughout our small home for several days. Such sweet memories. Thank you, Diana. I can't believe it has taken me almost an entire year to respond to this lovely piece. Forgive me.

Very vivid and colorful.
It's been cold and icy with lots of snow here where I'm at,
So this was refreshingly warm poetry to read.

Reviewed by dan Rosenhagen
I love how you captured the new moment Diana.
It is one thing to express ourselves when we feel
pain from life's unfortunate experiances, and just as importantly,
as you have done so masterfully, and captured the precious beauty
offered to the dawn and your eyes, on the aftermath the rain.
Sweet, sweet, sweet!

Love and peace forever

Rain cleans and refreshes everything in our world and allows us a new appreciation of all things in our life, especially flowerful gardens.

And it also provides a platform of experience so that if we suffer and endure a deluge of rain in our social and emotional life, we are able to hang onto the hope of a better and more fulfilling life, our spirit refreshed with the knowledge that our life once again will know "fulsome beauty, bounty and eternal energy."

Isn't rain one of God's most magnificent gifts?

My dearest Diana, I know well that you have known times of rain in your life; and so it is a blessing from God to know that you also can see what is possible, "After The Rain."

With a loving heart,

You have a mass of colour in the flowers in your garden, Diana. Flowers always give a lift to how one feels. Rain flattened tulips - poor tulips though a good description. Rainbows

The world seems reborn after the rain... I especially love the smells after the rain. (except when I lived in Missouri and the world smelled like mucky river bottom stench after the rain... that I could do without!) :)

Hooray for the rain, but darn glad it decided to stop for awhile, huh, Diana? We could sure use a bit of that moisture here in sun-baked south Louisiana.

By your vivid description of your garden you have a plethora of beautiful to the eye and sensuous to the nose flowers.
