Happy Fun-Fri-Yayyy My Friends❣️
Whether this finds you just getting up or heading to bed, “Grab a cuppa” and join me to celebrate Kym Gordon Moore’s Book Release, We Are Poetry Lessons I didn’t learn in a Textbook.
First off, hats off to our author with the biggest heart, fun spirit, passion, always cheering us all on and so uplifting and inspirational❣️
CONGRATULATIONS and CHEERS to you Kym, my friend and yours! If you’re not friends with her yet, tell her Cindy Funday Mommy Nature Girl sent you (my nickname she gave me) and she’ll welcome you with open arms. Soon you too will have a nickname. Right Dawwwwlink?❣️ This was the first time I had ever heard it pronounced like that and I love it.
This isn’t her first rodeo in book writing. That’s right or write, with over 3 other books to show for it, not to mention being an award-winning recipient in honorable poetry contests and more (do see her about page), before writing this book. I would say that this is a culmination of all she has learned out of the classroom even though she has plenty of hours in the classroom with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a Masters in Business Administration with 30 years of writing and speaking experience in the corporate world. So rush, don’t wait, to her blog space Behind The Pen and follow her. You won’t be disappointed, promise!
And look at her here in all of her glory looking so hot, sassy and classy with a wealth of knowledge as she takes the world by storm and brings life to poetry while bridging the gap and disrupting conventional thought processes to change the narrative of poetry which often gets a bad rap. Her objective is to get this book world wide to fight against illiteracy and aliteracy by introducing elements of poetic diversity and education among children and adults through non-traditional teaching approaches.
“So baby, grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine” as she says in her introduction so candidly that you feel like you are sitting on the couch with her and I’ll tell you a secret.
First of all, to all of you who have asked me to write a review of your book and I had to put you on hold, I apologize. However, when a book shows up out of the blue at my doorstep with no strings attached saying “no need to write a review, unless you would like to”, how could I refuse‼ Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours… She does love her music as can be seen on her posts❣️ Furthermore, she did say “but I would love a picture of Ollie and the book”. Ollie was elated and you know how I love my cats. So here you go Kym. I hope we didn’t disappoint.
NA MA STAY IN BED ALL DAY.. It’s Friday after all!
Mind you, this isn’t a full review because unlike all of you who read every book you can get your hands on and manage to read everyone’s blog and write as well, I just don’t have that capacity reading over 200 blogs a day, working full time and writing and blogging with a full family life. I am seriously in awe of that and have no idea how you do it but I do buy and gift lots of your books, so there’s that. Kudos to all of you!
Secondly, I write poetry but it appeared out of the blue and sometimes I have to pinch myself and am still trying to get my head around that. So when Kym’s book arrived in BIG PRINT with these aging eyes I was elated. How could you make it any easier to read for old readers or young ones?!! Brilliant idea Kym❣️
What I love about her book is that it captures you right off the bat with quotes to start every new chapter and her poems are interspersed throughout. Her poems are heartfelt and gripping that keep you engaged. Her poetic style and imagery in writing while imparting history and evolution of poetry are engaging and I find myself learning throughout the book.
I often feel inadequate because I’m not up to speed on all of the wonderful authors and periods but she always gives a definition and takes the mystery out of the otherwise elusive which can leave me feeling inadequate and small. It is by the way, one of the reasons poetry has not been well received through the ages which she points out.
When I read her book, I feel empowered and excited by the journey she takes us on which is so rich with symbolism and imagery and at the end of each chapter she invites you to participate in a POETRY CHALLENGE which is fun there are no grades yahoo!
Plus, I can open any page and read one of her amazing poems that always touch my heart and are thought provoking or open insights. Kind of like angel cards which I love.
I love this quote in her chapter Disparities in Poetry:
Poetry has universal appeal that neither begins with nor ends with an elite few.Kim Gordon Moore
There are so many gems and treasures in her book and it is a gift to all of us to learn and grow from as we take our words into the world and encourage others to do the same honestly, succinctly and lovingly.
Thank you Kym from the bottom of my heart and Ollie’s who has already sunk her teeth into into it literally.
That’s what she does with paper when she likes something.
Here’s to a great launch and sales galore and you continue to stamp the world with the gift of your presence, light and love!

Blessings of Love of Sharing, Caring, Reading and Writing this weekend,
Excellent post, Cindy. I know all too well the persistence of “stay in bed all day” laid on thick by the cats.

Your post is such a hoot, Cindy. I love how you exude energy… even while in bed, it seems. Thanks for the introduction to Kym and her book and her vision for bringing literacy to the world through poetry. She seems like a ball of fire too. No wonder you found each other. Congrats to Kym on her book and thanks for sharing it.
Hahahha Diana! I’ll take that as a compliment and if you ever read our comments, let’s just say they should be in a book of themselves. She’s hysterical. True on that front of finding each other.

You are too legit to quit!!! Oh, by the way my husband was so blown away after he read your review. I told my brother about it and he was blown away too!

Your generosity is astounding, Cindy. But why are you in bed? Are you sick? Recovering? Or just dog-tired???? Wishing you a lovely weekend! 🌞
Oh thanks dear Lisa and when your book comes out, I’ll be here for you too as long as it’s after mine. 😹 Oh my, did I look that bad?! Don’e answer that.. hahhahaha. I was up reading Kym’s book at like 4:00 a.m. and the contractors showed next to our bedroom for the second half at 7 so it was a scramble…. thus, the late post.. I was just taking every extra minute I had and didn’t have it in me to guise up … what can I say.. You have a great one too my friend! ❣️
No, no, no, you are always beautiful! I was just surprised to see you in bed!! And I will keep in mind you’re there for my book, thanks dear friend! 🌞
Awww thanks… me too… I was just savoring those last few minutes… 💕 chill-axing-:)
💕💕💕 of course always!
Oh you are so sweet.. sent you a message on my phone but it’s not showing up here. Not sure why .. so weird. Thank for the concern, I was slumming it.. lol Absolutely ❣️
Seems like a must have. Thanks Cindy for sharing.
Thanks Sadje! I appreciate that! 🥰💖🤗
You’re most welcome
Absolutely Sadje.. It’s a pleasure! 💞
Kym did such a fantastic job and so did you, Cindy, with this stellar review! I started reading her book last night. Wow! It is impressive and so is she! I am excited to read more and share on my blog and elsewhere. 👏🏻📚 🙌🏻
Michele my Belle, thanks so much for your always sweet and warm words. You guys really know how to make a gal feel special. I truly appreciate it! 🤗🙏🏼😍
You are special! You make it easy for us to do so. 💖
Girl, I am melting like butter. I feel like dancing all the way to the west coast and chill out in the desert with you. One day…one day…🌞🌵🤗
I am co-teaching dance in the morning in the Old Pueblo. You still have time to get there. 🏜️😆
LOL, girl I know you are going to be off the chain. I so love that you are teaching dance, no matter how big a part you play. Do it Michele’s Way, like Frank Sinatra! Dance…like “everyone” is watching! Oh sistah, you got this! 💃🏼👯♀️🎶🎤💃🏽
Wait, I want to come.. How did I know we would hear your great review too. So glad I was inspirational enough to have you start reading… it is so impressive for sure!! Can’t wait to hear yours as well💞
A party in the Pueblo! 🥳 Mine will be a shoutout with more reviews to follow. 😊✍🏻💗
Thanks so much Michele and 3 cheers for Kym. It really is quite impressive I so agree. Loved just seeing your shout out and review too which was so awesome. Soooo awesome to have such talented friends💞
Hip, hip, hooray! 🙌🏻 Thank you. 😊 Talented you too! 💗
Yes indeed! You’re so welcome.. thanks too!!💕
Thank you so much, dear Cindy, for such a wonderful post on the latest book of Kym Gordon Moore, a real sweetheart and a very dear friend like you. I loved your and Ollie’s pic with Kym’ s book. The quote is lovely and I am looking forward to reading the book. Happy weekend to you dear. ♥️♥️♥️😊😊
Awww Aparna, thank you for your dear words my sistah girlfriend. I appreciate you! 🥰💖😍 I’m going to bed now!!! 😴 Whew, what a day! 🌞
It was my pleasure and you will love it Aparana as everyone loves your book. Awww happy to be compared to Kym. She is the very best for sure. Ollie the photo hog.. 😹 loved it!~~
Have a great weekend as well my friend❣️
I’m surprised that you DON’T read 200 blogs per day. You must read at least 100. I spend about 2 -4 hours a day and that is probably going to change when I quit hosting PPAC. I’d like to get into writing poetry again, but there again, it’s time consuming. I’ll settle for reading yours for a while.
Oh my dearest Marsha.. It’s a lot and I have no idea how you get all of those organized photos up and running.. so impressed.. I’m gonna slow down with all of that and refocus because like you, how will be get a dang thing done.. lol.
Thanks tons my friend. 💞
You always seem to work it out. You are pretty much open to your public 24/7. I love the pictures of you and Ollie in bed with a book.
It seems as though you’re right .. hahahaaha and like you, we manage to figure it out. Some probs think we have no life.. ha. Do we? 😂
We definitely do. Documented in living color. 🙂
I will definitely check out her blogs and her exciting new book. I’ve seen her around on WP, but never got chance to interact. I shall do it now. 🔆
I feel like this is like a trailer for kym’s book “We Are poetry “, love the description.
I hope it’s available in India, because I really like reading hardcover 🙂
Best wishes to Kym Gordon Moore for the new books. More power to her. 👏🏻
Oh YAY Devang.. You’ll love her for sure. She has a wonderful depth of heart and soul. She really nailed it in her trailer for sure, you’re so right. That is always the issue of shipping etc. I know since my dear friend Kumar had a book and it was tough to get but his friend was in New York and my daughter lives there so we did the swap.
Very kind wishes my very supportive friend. ❣️
Awesome post, Cindy. I cannot wait to read Kym’s new book. Excited! 💗
Thank so much Jeff!
You’re gonna love it!! 💕❤️
You’re welcome, Cindy! Oh, I bet. It might be in my mail box now – need to go check! ❤️💞
I’m sure it is as we know how often you check it…. 😹😂💞
Ahahahaha! That’s the truth. 😂😅💞
At least a book won’t rot!!
😂😂😹 so you’re all good!❣️
Ahahaha! I just got my mail; and, well, let’s just say it was good I retrieved it today. Jeez. Lots o’mail in there. And, Kym’s book was there. 😁💞
Oh Yayyy and reason to go and at least her book couldn’t rot.. 🤣
Great post, Cindy.
You and Ollie together are love❤
Thank so much Vidah!! ❤️
Thank you so much Vidah!!! 💗
Umm.. Your welcome.. But I m Kriti.. not Vidah😅😅
Oops sorry about the Vidal!!💕
No problem..I understand..happen sometimes!🤗💞
You are such a sweet lady, dear Cindy, and I agree with you…our friend Kym definitely rocks! Writing a book is a substantial undertaking, and your praise for her good works is both kind and well-deserved. Thank you for sharing your positive vibes, and I wish you a wonderful weekend my friend! 💖
Awww thanks Phil.. just like you are to all of us. Seriously, I went back to take some of my poems off and you liked every post from day one. Wow! Thanks so
