Cindy


CINDY J. SMITH
Poetry and children's books
Who am I you ask?  Well, I am a poet and originally from Avon, NY.  I live in Indiana now with my husband.  I'm an older person, not quite as old as dirt. As far back as I can remember, I have written poetry, and with every experience in life, I've found inspiration.  (I really just write what the voices in my head tell me to write.) Never having been good at playing the part of "starving artist", I've had many careers, and I just recently retired from being an over-the-road truck driver with my husband Dave. For the past 13 years it  has provided amazing opportunities for inspiration.  I am now able to sit at home and "eat bon-bons and watch soap operas" as I always dreamed. (Actually I have never had a bon-bon and I hate soap operas.) I have published 7 poetry books and my children's book, Caesar and the Bluebells, was republished with new illustrations. More of my poetry has appeared in anthologies as well as several books by fellow authors.


Ever want to get a second opinion on life? Well, Cindy has had voices giving her theirs all her life. With straight talk and sarcasm, they rhyme their views to her. In this first book, she offers you a glimpse of the path she has been traveling while seeking her way in this world.


In this second book of poetry, Cindy's voices continue their relentless sharing of their opinions. Touching on many of the emotions and life situations humans encounter, they offer their viewpoint in the hopes of finding the path to peace. At the end of the book, Cindy has shared a small section spotlighting the works of her angel daughter, to whom this book is lovingly dedicated for her Birthday.

After being alluded to many years ago in Rhymes Through Time, I have completed QUIET! Please?. This selection of poems is arranged in categories as are the first two books in my "Jasmine's Wish" series. My voices have been writing poems for my entire life. Their constant jabbering is taking its toll. Despite my begging and pleading for quiet, they keep talking. Come on over and see how they can write about anything at any time. The categories may be set, but the topics are as varied as grains of sand.

This is the final book in my little collection. Life is too short to get stuck in a rut. Luckily for me, the voices show me many different views of the same situation so that is never an issue. Despite their varied revelations, I am relieved they've finally begun to give me moments of peace. (Perhaps it is because I forced them to work everyday last year.) Whatever the reason, I do enjoy the quiet even though I miss them when they are gone. When they do return, I am still amazed that after all these years their rhymes are still unique blendings that reveal truths I never noticed.

This third poetry book by Cindy offers a sample of her first two books as well as a future book. You will not find sex, violence, blood or gore, and nor will you find vampires, zombies or ghosts. You will find poems about fleeting and elusive moments captured in rhyme through the sands of time.

In this fourth book of poetry from Cindy, we are again taken on a life journey. This time we float along like an Autumn leaf on a breeze, pausing here and there before catching the wind and flying once more. Each stop is a unique view of life and the world before us. Come on in, and see if you can catch the words on the wind.

This collection was created from my 2017 New Years Resolution. Seeing and hearing various remarks about the new year being "a clean slate" and that "each day is a new page in life write something fresh" inspired me to vow to write a poem everyday. I do write almost everyday so I challenged myself to collect the very first poem, no matter the topic, as the day's offering. No theme was involved, everything was fair game. I wanted to be able to look back and see if perspectives really do change daily. I offer everyone a ride on this poetic rollercoaster, where life changed at the speed of a turned page.

Caesar lives on a farm with his owner, Lori. Caesar is a retriever who loves playing in the field of bluebells while protecting the farm. Lori puts two gnomes in her garden for decoration. Caesar thinks something is not right about them. The next May when Lori and Caesar visit their bluebell field, it is destroyed. The fairies are worried. Their queen is missing! Caesar knows the gnomes are involved. Can Caesar find the Queen and fix the mess?
