Autumnal Advice (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Happy First Day of Autumn!!!] Numerous stresses threatened to crash down on me      one afternoon this past week                   …of concerns for family and friends                           troubles in the world at large                              and plans that seemed                                              just beyond                                                  my reach I tugged on a mask andContinue reading “Autumnal Advice (A Poem)”

Autumn Delights (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Yet another Autumn-themed poem, but I’m just looking forward to Autumn so much. However, even now, certain flavors and special little twists of the season have started to appear. What are your favorite treats of the season?] Spices waft through the crisp air       like promises of change—                                                               cinnamonContinue reading “Autumn Delights (A Poem)”

My Child and I (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Inspired by A.L. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh books, and a few other things. Hope you enjoy it!] The mother stitched   fabric together into the design   of an anthropomorphic fox      adorned in a simple dress      with a bow tied near one ear But it was my child who  Continue reading “My Child and I (A Poem)”

Lost Media (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Based on some musings I’ve had on the titular subject, especially old shows from childhood that are now difficult to find–mostly because they never made the move from one type of media to another. Are there any examples of lost media that you would love to find again someday?] LikeContinue reading “Lost Media (A Poem)”

Wings of Change (A poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Things are starting to change little by little in my life, hopefully for the better.] I am making wings now         formed by ideas                translated into actions For too long they have remained       bunched on the pages of journals                  as bits and pieces                           of possibilities                                                                   Continue reading “Wings of Change (A poem)”

Little Things (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Little things can make all the difference in the world.] A little wave can influence a costal shore                 since every gentle brush pulls grains of sand into the sea                 and delivers treasures from the deep onto the land A little water can give rise to a mighty treeContinue reading “Little Things (A Poem)”

Journal Entry #16

The small town where I grew up has just gained its first larger general store–a Dollar General. More people are flocking to the area, and the older and much smaller, far-more-limited market (which had already been doing poorly for quite a while), has closed down. Some of its stock has gone to the Dollar General,Continue reading “Journal Entry #16”

Creature of Memories (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo [Author’s Note: Just a few thoughts about individual development, helped along by the people we encounter in life.] A creature emerged into the world    her only definition was her lack of definition     transparent as a reflection upon a crystalline surface            as she wandered among fields and foothills                                                        mountainsContinue reading “Creature of Memories (A Poem)”

Journal Entry #8

The other day I worked on one of the last lengthy transcription assignments I am likely to have for a while. Admittedly, it was a bit nightmarish. The audio wasn’t always the best, the speakers tended to interrupt each other a lot, and each part of the process seemed to stretch even more than usual.Continue reading “Journal Entry #8”

Journal Entry #4

Having a WordPress blog has been a great learning experience, especially when combined with advice gleamed from other bloggers, writing friends, and sources like Writer’s Market. One important thing to keep in mind, it seems, is to continue developing a blog with a specific focus in mind. I started “The Literary Serenity Archives” with theContinue reading “Journal Entry #4”
