Sammers Digital Art by Daginne Aignende

Daginne Aignende was a beautiful soul poet and artist who walked this earth with a gentle and caring heart.  She loved my cockatiel Sammers and created these digital art pieces of him with my photographs for me.  I will forever treasure these .  Rest with the angels my dear Daginne.

Background: Stanzaic Stylings is the ezine version of Ya'Sou! Magazine A Celebration of Life which was a tribute to my late Mom who always supported and encouraged my writing.
I have been writing for over 50 years and have accomplished all I've wanted to accomplish with my writing including many credits, awards and books.  Now, its time for me to give back to the poetry community by offering my knowledge and experience to any poet out there who needs help with their writing. 
As a result, I have decided to launch my own "poet to poet" consulting services, pro bono, to anyone who may need help.All you need to do is email me at with your inquiries and I will respond within 24 hours.

Blooming In Winter
Sleep eludes meas the darkness lingersinvading my thoughtslike black ice.
The silence disturbsas the night stopsallowing the darknesslike a shroud
I yearn for morningwhen sunrise awakensand my thoughts are refreshedlike a white magnolia
