Finally! I know what you may be thinking, The last book in the poetry collection being released. If you are wondering what the first two collections are about you can read the first one here, The Darkness but be warned that there is a trigger warning as some of the subjects in the collection are hard to read or think about for many people. The Light, the second collection released is more about overcoming obstacles and challenges in life, with some trigger warnings in there this is more of an uplifting spirit.
And this! The Colorful is the final installment in the trilogy of poetry collections that I have released. This is probably the most fun one to write. I was able to be silly and fun and sometimes not even making any sense at all! This is the collection that I am sure many many people will enjoy and hopefully they enjoy it as much as I had fun writing it. These are poems that I know I thought back to my childhood as well as the future raising kids of my own now too. I can only assume that people too can relate to the poems or have similar stories that they can remember when they were younger too.
Some of the chapters in this collection touch base on some of life’s most meaningful subjects. From the weather, pets, or children. Maybe even places to be or things to do. They talk about all of the joys one may find. Music is a chapter where I talk about popular songs or songs that bring up memories for various reasons. I know there are some that remind me of my childhood when my dad was working out side on the cars and had the radio going on the oldies which are now the super oldies.

I talk about different situations that you may find yourself in when you have children. Since becoming a mom I have learned so much and my kids have taught me so much too. I talk about meltdowns and moments that you can’t help but smile as you read the words along the pages. I know I was smiling writing them!
Then in the weather chapter there is situations about splashing in mud puddles, having a snow day at school or even the sun shining and feeling it on your skin. There is a lot of different things that can be written about in a light hearted way that I am sure most can relate to, that is if you life in a place that has snow! It may be hard to relate to a poem about snow if you don’t know what it looks like! hopefully they are able to show you just what it means for it and you can feel like you were there too.
After writing different things that are the tougher side of life, this book was a great relief from writing about them. I loved every minute or thinking of subjects to talk about in the chapters. I was excited when a new one would pop into my head to the point I would even write the ideas for them down so I never forgot. Having 2 boys it can be challenging to write about a subject in the moment and this was a great way for me to not forget ideas.
The Colorful is a collection that I am hopeful people can read whether on it’s own, or as the final installment of the trilogy. Even though it is part of a series of collections it can still be read by itself to understand what is happening. They can be stand alone or read together to see the progression of the world being a dark and scary place, to moving towards light and healing, to embracing what life has to offer. There may be a few sadder themes happening and when they come up I will also add a trigger warning just in case people need them. However I do feel fairly confident that these will go well in terms of people interpreting how they will be.
Subjects that I also write about are winning, and no not just about the lottery too, laughter and things that can make people laugh, peace and the world or even just peace of mind when you realize a life changing moment. These were a nice way to finish how I felt and to see others too who feel this way. Some of the situations were a bit tricky to think about only because I did not want to write about the same things every time. The chapters are there to give the topics, but the situations are hopefully different enough that you enjoy them too.
There are moments in children where I talk about having my c-section and how it mentally was challenging for me to have a newborn and my oldest however in the end I can’t picture it any other way. I am so thankful to have these experiences to be able to write about too. I know some other people may have a tough time relating to life in this way. Some people have grown up much differently than I have. I am sharing a piece of my life with you and I sincerely hope that in some way you too can relate to these poems about how life is filled with many, many situations that can make our world colorful. There is not always a black and white path. There is lots of shades and colors that are around and able to be seen if only we look a little bit harder to appreciate them!
