My Thoughts are Coloured Purple by Marina Quindiagan

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. The author will award a $10 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

This is a book of poems on love. Love is a universal language. Love yourself, love your neighbours, love your parents, love your siblings—even love your enemies. Most of the poems are on romantic love. When you are in love, you get an awesome feeling. You walk on the clouds. However, love can be unrequited, unanswered and can bring an awful feeling.

Love is in the movies, in songs, and in music. Love is in this book of poems, ever so strong and powerful. It's there for you to enjoy.


Read an Excerpt

He sent me you

Day after day I asked myself why
There was a tear in my heart, don’t know why.
But then you came along the way,
Serendipity, maybe.
Some things are meant to be, really.
‘Cause I have not been waiting for you, baby.
But like an idol you appeared in front of me
In that box called TV.
Poetry was in your eyes,
Didn’t have to look twice.
You were amazing when I saw you the first time, lad,
I felt like going mad.
Ever since that day I couldn’t get you out of my head,
You set my heart aglow and you didn’t know,
My heart was pounding every time I thought of you; you could have read,
You cast a spell; I can’t now let you go.
God sent me you, with challenges on our laps,
Think of almost a generation as a big gap,
Not to mention you revered a different deity,
And a language from far away,
We can’t even chat daily.
God sent me you to start a new chapter in my life,
You didn’t know, God sent me you.
Come closer to me, touch me,
Before I turn into a tree, save me,
And not the other way.
How will I tell you, boy?
God sent me you to give me joy, not my god, not my lover, not my boy toy.
Exactly forty years ago God sent me you,
And you didn’t know, or you were too young and innocent to know.

A bedtime storybook for parents to read to their children, depicting the excitement for possible adventures in dreams and the sensation of letting thoughts wander as you drift off to sleep. Meant to invoke soft imagery and imaginative thoughts of adventure and fun, it's a relaxing read for pleasant sleep.

About the Author: I am a father to a baby girl and hope to read to her just like I was read to when I was little. I grew up with a love of stories and creative settings and views. This gave me a love of adventure and appreciation for great imagery that I hope can be experienced by many parents and their children someday. It gave me a lot of happy memories and I hope to give the same happy memories to at least one child.
