When we hear a poem, we may recognize certain patterns of rhythmic flow—a beat or rhyme, but
not all poems have a standard prose and not all poets are alike; a mind filled with constant words
and images, thoughts and sensation—poems of long proses.
Poetry is poetry.
Then there are poems that are short, brief and to the point, but so much power exudes from just a
couple of words.
Poetry is poetry.
Just as art is universal, poetry is in the eye of the beholder. This book includes rhythmic poems, micro-poems, and passionate poems—set to stir emotions and feelings in the reader.
Not everything in life can be planned or placed in order from A to Z, but this book also includes inspirational poems for each letter of the alphabet for those small moments, when you just need a tiny bit of order in the middle of chaos. Flip to a letter and you will see, the wonders that can be.

The Intricate Conundrum of a Creative Writer, Passionate Painter, & Analytical Thinker
By Gaudys Laxury
Where does one fit in this world that is constantly evolving, as a left-brain and right-brain user? I am a writer, a painter, and an analyst. I see the world through a different telescope and my mind is a kaleidoscope of colors; that is until the moment that my left brain kicks in and I feel the urge to investigate logical answers.
Thus, the conundrum begins. The push and pull felt in the chattering mind.
As a painter, the genre I mostly focus on is abstract expressionism, although lately my artworks have evolved into surrealistic themes. I have been influenced by diverse artists, including Salvador Dali, Jackson Pollock, Edgar Degas, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Fernando Botero, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, and Yves Tanguy.
By contrast, I do not have a specific writer or book that has influenced my ability to write, but rather, I am fond of the written word. There is an intellectual stimulation felt from authors who have the ability to capture the audience through their written words.
Metaphorically speaking, I believe the corpus callosum, the area between both hemispheres, lies my investigative itch, always ready to explore while using both the creative and analytical sides to obtain answers.
I currently work in the legal industry as a researcher creating reports that bring a unique perspective to intelligence work. In order to work on creative projects while working full time on analytical projects, takes determination and perseverance. In order to work on analytical problems, when suddenly a creative idea comes to mind takes patience and confidence to either place the idea in the back of the mind or jot the idea down and try to recall at a later date.
Having the ability to use both the right and left hemisphere of the brain is a blessing. I thank my parents for giving me the gift to be able to interchange naturally and effortlessly between both hemispheres.
I use both sides of my brain to process information. My right side of the brain is emotional allowing me to take in experiences and to see the “big picture,” while my left side recalls details. I can easily shift between both sides, which I believe leads to a more complex of a creative thinker.
But being different is innovative and having the ability to shift rapidly between divergent and convergent thinking makes me unique, more inventive and a better problem solver.
Where do I fit in this world that is constantly evolving?
I do not need to mask and mold myself into this world or fit to societal means. As with any functional interaction between the cerebral hemispheres and the dynamic interaction with one another—I am a writer, a painter, and an analyst who fits uniquely fine in this kaleidoscope world we’re living in.
Meet the Author:
Gaudys Laxury is a visionary autodidact artist, writer, and poet. She studied politics, law, and communications during her graduate years, while incorporating her passions for creative arts.
As an artist, Gaudys learned to be open and creative. As a writer, she learned that words are the gateway to communicate and inspire lives. As a poet, Gaudys learned the subtleties and transformative discipline of the arts — the power to bring words together and unify on an abstract and metaphorical level; to make us think to the highest virtue.
The first book written by Gaudys, The Pearl inside the Orchid, was designed to inspire, channel emotions, and connect readers on a deeper and spiritual level. Life From A to Z is her second book, which reflects an expression of life, relationships, and inspirations. Both books have been dedicated to her family and muses.
