I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” – John Burroughs
YAY! I see snow, at last. It’s winter, my favourite season. Now, and just because it’s the season for giving (and receiving), I’ve got a little something for you.
This hand-carved wooden book pendant by the multitalented artist, Iona Orbinski, is yours if you are a book (and a nature) lover.
So, you’ve read my chapbook, Seasons Defined. You even took time to write a review on your blog and elsewhere (despite that “Big Brother” is determined not to support this endeavour), I can’t THANK YOU enough for your support.
Now, entering the giveaway is as simple as quoting your favourite line or two (or a stanza) from one of the poems in the collection, Seasons Defined. Leave your entry in the comments section below.
Here is my example, and quoting from Poems by Emily Dickinson, Three Series, Complete:
A word is dead
When it is said,
I say it just
Begins to live
That day. (from ‘A Word’)
special notes: I assume you’re already following my blog, public posts on Facebook or Instagram in order to keep up to date. If not, please don’t forget to add your email to the comments section so that I can be able to contact you, if you win.
The giveaway is open from Dec. Wed, 12th – Wed, 19th to anyone who can legally enter it. I will draw and announce the winner on Thursday, Dec 20th and no later than 20:00 EET time. The winner has 24 hours to claim the prize, failing which another winner will be drawn. So, do come back to check!
That’s all, folks. All the best!
UPDATE: The winner of Winter Giveaway: for Book Lovers is KC Redding-Gonzalez.
