Roz’s Musings – Poetise the Planet

Hello and welcome readers to my little corner of the world. As fellow lovers of words and their power I would like to introduce you to the work of Drew Dellinger.

ROZ’S MUSINGS – The Power of Now

Hello and welcome readers to my little corner of the world. A new word is gaining in power in the west and can now be heard in the sub continent.
