100 Poems by F.T.White: Vol 2 (Volume 2 Poems 100-201)

by F.T. White

Around my Junior year, I became extremely prolific with my poems. I already had a basic style defined and an experimental poem format. Just about every format of poems has already been invented. Coming up with a new one was quite an interesting feat in it of itself. These odd poems usually take the longest, and they come with only three stanzas. Depending on how you read it is the type of meaning you get. Its like having 3 poems in one. Around this time, I got enamored with the word Oblivion. It’s funny when writers get worked up with a single word. If you look closely at other people’s work you see a certain word repeating often. The general theme continued down its depressing, pathetic mood. Even when things were tolerable in Junior year, I was still yearning to be elsewhere. During this year, I had the most amount of friends. However, that did not matter much because I was in school. Then again, I am neither the first nor the last student to despise school. Though, I am one of the few who wrote a truckload of poems about it.

Artist Bio
I was born in Cuba in 1989, but technically I lived in the US since day one. As far back as I can remember, my main obsession was going to the US. I thought only of the US, and every little thing that came from America became precious to me. One day my father gave me one of those little old portable electronic toys. It was like a dictionary of sorts. I used it to learn my first English words. I learned first how to read English, before learning how to speak it. My artistic career blossom by 8th grade. My teacher had us do a little Sonnet. This was my first Sonnet, which I dedicated to my dog. My grandma had told me that my dog died after I left towards the US. That made me pretty sad.
This started the first of my series of poems. I used to only write poems when I was in school. As for drawing, I started with Pokemon and then moved to Yugioh. Eventually, when my skills got good enough I started designing the characters for my first manga, The Furies. At the time, I was a Junior in High School. In the previous school year, I reached an important junction in my life. I had a choice between taking AP Studio Art and AP Psychology. I chose the latter. Psychology ended up being a mess. The teacher was too technical with the exams. To avoid getting a bad grade, I switched to Journalism.
This is how I ended up starting my path towards Journalism. I continued down this track, all the way up to University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communication, from the School of Journalism. I never got around to professionally write for a Newspaper or a News channel. This was in part because of the free labor. The people from the Newspapers were recruiting University students to work for free. They were also supposed to feel happy when writers put their name in their work.
I told the recruiter, if I wanted to work for free I could do it just as fine from home. This was when I
decided to write my first novel, Marduke. I was following the footsteps of some of my favorite writer Stephan Zweig. He started with poems, then he did journalism, and finally he started writing novels. This was the first of a series of 14 novels, all taking place in the same fantasy world.
Last 2017, my brother and I were having a hard time moving from Hialeah. As part of a prayer, I composed my Chibi Bible. It is an illustrated Children’s Bible. It has been ages since people made a good illustrated Bible. I even did Apocalypse. People usually have a hard time with Apocalypse because of the Beast, and other bizarre imagery. However, this was my second favorite book. For an illustrated Bible, Apocalypse provides plenty of description and imagery.
Currently, I am working on completing my novel series. I am by book 9. I am also brain storming my two new books. I want to tackle the Vampire subject. I also have a Science Fiction book under the belt based on a cool dream I had. A lot of my short stories are dreams.

We Are Like the Sky (Happy Heart & Peaceful Mind Series Book 4)

by Elisabeth Rose Wilds

This book was featured in OMYoga & Lifestyle Magazine for Teaching Mindfulness to children.

This book sends the message that within us is a quiet, peaceful place represented by the sky, while our thoughts and emotional responses are likened to weather conditions, (i.e. billowy clouds, sunshine, thunderstorms, tornadoes and rainbows). The main characters of the story are a cowboy and his horse traveling through the open plains of the West. These two characters experience a wide range of weather conditions that mirror their thoughts, until a terrible lightning storm throws the cowboy off his horse. The cowboy, with the love of his horse, persist, finds that peaceful place within, and climbs back into the saddle to start the journey again.

In this book, we are creators of the sky. We learn that we can create white billowy clouds with happy thoughts or big rain storms and hurricanes with angry thoughts. We learn that in any moment, we can chase all the dark clouds away by simply thinking warm, loving thoughts. And, if we choose, we can create a sparkling rainbow that sends its loving colorful rays of light to all those around us.

Elisabeth Rose Wilds wrote this book to assist children in developing an awareness of the connection between their thoughts and their emotional well-being. Elisabeth hopes that this book opens doors for conversations between caretakers and children on how to view the world from a place of compassion for themselves and others, with the understanding that infinite peace is always within their reach, as is kindness and love.

Elisabeth has studied healing modalities in the Far Eastern, Native American and Andean traditions over the past twenty years. Elisabeth founded and administers a Healing Arts Center at a non-profit organization in New York City focused on assisting homeless youth. In addition, she teaches classes in personal development, stress management, mindfulness and the healing arts.
