The book is available! Color Me With Hugs!

Cover Color Me With Hugs by Doodleslice

Color Me With Hugs is my first book!

It took me two years to put together this whimsical collection of 44 poems paired with 44 drawings.

The words and images are playful, and evocative of childhood, but this coloring + poetry book is intended to delight adults and children alike.

The book is brimming with animals, people, picnics, unicorns, turtles, love, umbrellas, giraffes, elephants, flying saucers, rabbits, and astronauts — in fact some of the rabbits are astronauts!

It is a book of light and lyrical poems. Some evoke a sense of wonder, some tell a story, others simply indulge in the pleasures of magical nonsense.

It is my hope that grown ups and kids can both find something to cherish in these pages filled with joy and love.

The book is available now on Amazon and select locations around Atlanta.

Where are the smiles Where are the smiles that sweep away the fog? Banishing silver tears and mildewed memories A blossom of light cascading from the laughter Echoing with bright brass vibrations Carefree eyes closed long ago Hushed by years of earthy sleep An envelope of stillness Soundless in shrouds And lost on pale lips ___ 2021-10-16 By Doodleslice #poem #poetry #poetsofinstagram #lament #mourning #smiles #loss

Daddy was a Mummy Daddy was a mummy Wrapped in linens, head to toe Junior thought it funny How he groaned and walked so slow All the other kids’ pops Would play softball and drink beer But they would call the cops When the mummy shuffled near “A monster!” They would shout With venom in their voices Because he walked about In his grave clothing choices Three thousand years or more He has rocked this sense of style Never thinking they’d abhor Royal fashions of the Nile Now I ask a query Who are the monsters truly? Mummies, dressed so scary Or men who shout unruly? ___ 2021-10-13 By Doodleslice #poem #poetry #poetrycommunity #monster #mummy #doodleslice #halloweenpoems

Buttered Toast Before this sunny day You’d never hear me say That I prefer the night But today gave me such fright At my breakfast table A sight to disable The guts and wits and knees Of anyone who sees A spectral gaping maw Describes the thing I saw A hungry, greedy ghost Crunch-crunching buttered toast Watching a phantom munch Makes for a frightful brunch And now my dreadful hunch Is it will stay for lunch This guest unexpected Has left me dejected Oh give me back the night Free from this dreadful fright Perhaps an exorcist Can make the ghoul desist… End it! This breakfast of the damned End it! My hell of toast and jam ___ 2021-10-12 By Doodleslice #poem #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsociety #ghost #toast #doodleslice
