Mosaic of My Mind: A Collection of Poetry by Melissa Moy


5-Star Poetry
New!
From Poet
Melissa Moy
mosaic of my mind:
a collection of poetry past, present, and possible

Readers will be taken on an in-depth journey of the trials and tribulations one faces growing up and merely experiencing life. Whether you've ever experienced a minor challenge or have had to overcome major obstacles, you will quickly find yourself relating to the words from Moy's pen.

Embrace your most inner self and explore the caverns of who you were, who you are, and who you might become as you digest Moy's words and use them as a vehicle of exploration. Unlike her first book, these poems were written over a period of over fifteen years, from a woman in her teens to one in her thirties. 


About the Author

Writing has always been a passion for Melissa Moy, something that she will never be able to give up or turn her back on…it is…who she is. From the very start of her educational experiences, Moy gravitated toward written expression. When asked when or how she first learned to write she simply replied, “There was never a ‘how’, only a ‘had to.’ I just had to write, and so I did.” Moy’s writing dips into a plethora of forms and topics, but poetry has always been most near and dear to her heart.

Found: Vivian Maier

Found: Vivian Maier

Last Sunday night, I started to sneeze. Monday morning, I was a mess. Tuesday, I was at the doc, then to the hospital for a flu swab. Ugh. When I woke this morning, it was Friday; not sure how I lost several days, but there it is, and that’s what the flu does to a body. Now, I am thankful to be on the mend, but still wary of going outside (even though I miss my horses and cats and know they are trying to figure out where I am – thank goodness for a family member who loves my animals, too).

Today, not able to leave the house, but able to do something – I decided to watch Netflix. I love the documentaries: Dior, Vogue, Manolo, Mumbai Railway, etc. Then I came across Finding Vivian Maier by John Maloof. Wow. I was mesmerized by the life of Vivian, her humbleness, prolific photography, and life.

Vivian was born in New York, USA. She was a nanny and photographer. She was a spinster and loner; however, she liked people, landscapes, and the world in general. Her passion was photography and I wonder what she would have to say about her work being found. I’m sure she would smile at John Maloof and thank him for his diligence.

Thanks, John Maloof, for resurrecting a fascinating life. I loved seeing Vivian’s photos and hearing the tale of how her work came back to life. I hope to see the exhibit someday. Possibly, you would consider sharing the exhibit with Ohio University’s Kennedy Museum of Art.


Most of all, Finding Vivian Maier is affirmation to follow your passion, no matter what it is. As my neighbor always says, you can’t hide your light under a bushel. Maybe someday someone will find your boxes (or flash drive) of passion and exhibit it in a gallery for the world to see, and they will fall in love with your work, too.

The Rhythm of Life by Claudia Ciugudean, D.V.M.

Dr. Ciugudean at home

The Rhythm of Life
By Claudia Lorena Magda – Ciugudean, D.V.M.
Alba lulia, Transylvania, Romania

It will take you only a jump to get on the saddle, then you’ll feel your body filled with emotions, butterflies which pass beyond the soul.

A strong nicker, followed by a certain familiar rhythm… a deja vu from your mother’s womb. It has always been there, it’s the rhythm of your life, the rhythm which takes you to your past and then throws you into the future… it’s when you discover yourself, without rhythm you’re nothing but an empty body. If you want to find yours, ride a horse, but not any horse, but the one which has your heartbeat and you’ll be the only one capable to recognize it.

So, jump on the saddle, slack the reins and start galloping towards where your soul wants to be. Leave behind any regrets, worries or unfulfillments. Gallop with our arms wide open, with your eyes shut, so that you hear better the rhythm of your mother’s womb, your rhythm, your horse, your soulmate.

Every person has its own horse and their hearts beat like one the moment they meet. Give yourself the chance to find that rhythm!

Jason Nocera, Professional Cartoonist


Professional Cartoonist

The perfect gift for Father's Day!
The perfect gift for any occasion!

Early-Bird Spring Sale 20% Off! Mention this blog



"Where are we going today?" would be the first words she would say to his wife when she woke up. His wife would work in the evenings and take care of their daughter during the day. That meant she had to be the event organizer because everyday was an event with their 3 year old daughter. She took her to "play bloop" which is how she said "play group." She took her to "imaginationation nation" which is how her daughter called the local child science center. (It's simply "Imagine Nation"). She took her to the library. She took her to the playground. She took her everywhere! Then there was the homemade meals and the reading of books. She did a lot. She was a Super Mom!


A Super Mom would make a cute comic strip. Instead of fighting evil villains, though, it would highlight her personal story with her daughter. It would celebrate it so she could look back on those years and recall and smile. At least, that's what Jason Nocera thought. It helped that he's also a full-time cartoonist and can see the "funny" in everyday life. He drew up the personal comic and presented it as a card for his wife on Mother's Day. That's when the idea clicked that everyone has memorable events and situations that can be captured in a comic page. There are a ton of Super Moms and Super Dads! He now works as a cartoonist where he captures other couple's memorable events, emotions and lives in colorful, custom comic strips and full comic pages. He works one-on-one with each person to create a truly unique gift.

Father's Day is a great time to show your spouse that he is a special dad! A custom comic page can highlight the time he spends with his child or children, how he provides for the family, his special interests and his passionate hobbies. Is there a favorite sports team they cheer on together? A favorite book they read together? Something he can't wait to teach his child?

Or perhaps your spouse views himself as a hero! Imagine a story featuring your husband saving you and your child. Again, personal details can be included to make it something personal. Perhaps he plays tennis and now his "super powered" tennis balls and racquet is how he defeats a villain. The possibilities are endless.

As a professional cartoonist, Jason Nocera only needs the details and he will turn it into a personal comic strip or page. It's a gift that will be cherished for a lifetime. Hand-drawn and signed original artwork included! It typically takes 3-4 weeks for completion. Framing is also available for those residing in the US. Right now, he is having an early-bird, Spring Sale for 20% off. Please mention this blog when ordering!
