unbound CONTENT is proud to announce the launch of the last new book of 2012: Captured Moments, by Ellenelizabeth Cernek! You've read her poetry at vox, and in this collection you'll get to read more and see her beautiful art which graces the cover. 

What do I love about this book? It's our first book of romance poetry! As I write in the book's Introduction, "The poetry of Ellenelizabeth Cernek definitely falls into the category of romance poetry. You'll know it from first read, just like we sometimes know love at first sight." Curious? Well, there's only one thing to do about that: order a copy!

Captured Moments is available in print here: https://www.createspace.com/3741270

Christmas Cactus

On a starry cold winter's night
A small cactus which has never bloomed
Drinks in the light
Of the Bethlehem’s star.

As the Glorious Light
Bathes the world with Joy
A small baby boy
Was born in a manger

The small cactus rejoices
And Blooms
All the color of the rainbow
In homage to the new born King.

Merry Christmas

Poetry and Music

In the cold snow,
poetry and music,
fills the quiet,
from the hands
of the child they call Shahenda,
Magical melodies woven,
as the wind inhales,
forever holding her songs in its breath,
until Shahenda beckons them,
to fill the world with peace.

New Home For Christmas

After the fire, being displace and living in hotels for more than 3 months, we are now settled in a home in Sedona, AZ.  It took us a long time to find the right place for the family and our large dogs.  But settling in here is like a stepping onto another planet.  They roll up the sidewalks by 9:00 pm, and us being from the east coast, we are just getting ready to go out at this time.  There is a lot to adjust too, but the aha factor is like when you take a heavy sigh and release it.  Every turn in the roads around here there is something else to smile about.  So being displaced here is not as stressful as waiting for the house to be rebuilt  in New Jersey.  Thank God for J's middle son, who is taking care of the details of the rebuild.  Any additional stress for J, could mean bad news.
So the new home for Christmas will be here!
