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.

Walking Alone Walking alone With my favorite monsters Growling. Rehashing Same ol’ somedays And breaks a golden moment Framed by blue Spectacular blue My chin lifts Afloat on a noiseless warm ocean Basking on the crest of this single sun-speckled wave Moments fade Waves crash Monsters resume their grumbles But not while I float Not while this blue is the blue Not inside Where this silence Like the spectacular sun Is golden —- Doodleslice 2021-04-12 #poem #poetry #walking #solitude #monsters #innerdemons #sun #sky #blue #golden #silence #silenceisgolden #innerpeace #innersilence #doodleslice

Is It Mutual? . “She crackles” sounds awful Electricity arcing sounds awful A dreadful racket Snapping and crackling Spitting jagged blue light Sizzling at every point of contact . Around her feels like that, but better More life-full With no cacophony Just “um” And “ummm” She ionizes the air His lungs feast in her atmosphere Reluctant to exhale . But she breathes with inscrutable ease Nonchalantly Nonchalant . It’s awful . . . === . By Doodleslice 2017-05-07 . #poem #poet #poetry #love #electricity #infatuation

Excerpt from the Love Letters of Strunk & White By Doodleslice 2015-03-30 If I could love you with words seven would fetch eleven If I could love you with words there would be no grammar save for ecstatic conjugation If you would love me with words my life would turn on your ellipses One apostrophe, one contraction From participle to participle To future past perfect. #aprilispoetrymonth #poem #poetry #poet #oldie #love #strunkandwhite #atl #atlanta #atlarts #atlpoetry #atlpoet #atlantapoet #doodleslice #lovepoem #lovepoetry #words #wordsoflove
