Haunted (Triolet)
I trace the lines of your timbered soul
That echo through the wilderness
Your brazen silhouette made sharp and bold
I trace the lines of your timbered soul
Where nature breathes me whole
She leaves us free to be creative and aimless
I trace the lines of your timbered soul
That echo through the wilderness.

Soap&PaperFactory Hand Cream Review


Soap & Paper Factory began in 2001 with the passion to create soap the old fashioned way. Today you can purchase a variety of products for your household, ranging from bath & body products, candles, diffusers potpourrit, room spray, etc, all in varying pleasant fragrances.

After a long day in the Texas heat, completing errands, chasing kids, etc, I consider it a luxury being able to pamper myself with products like those offered by Soap & Paper Factory. Bouquet Hand Cream is packaged simply, with love and care. The hand-made hand cream contains the finest oils available in nature, packing a strong natural scent which I find soothing and relaxing.

Thanks for Bouquet Hand Cream my hands are no longer chronically dry and for those, like me, who are concerned about where and what products are made, Soap & Paper Factory products are made in NY. Additionally, their Bouquet Hand Cream is Vegan and not tested on animals!

Introspection: Equilibrium: Released on August 5th!


*This post contains affiliate links.

Introspection + Equilibrium is my second book of poetry to be published through Amazon. It has already been three years since I published my last book and I honestly didn’t think it would take me this long to finally release my second book. I suppose the combination of life and procrastination got in the way; however, I was determined to publish my next book this year so I’ve really dedicated my free time this last month to sitting down and writing.

Description: Introspection + Equilibrium is Jessica Fuqua’s second poetry collection which takes you on a journey of pain and hope featuring themes both spiritual in form (the things you cannot see) and the natural world (which can be seen.)

Introspection + Equilibrium contains 26 poems in the following 5 forms: haiku, triolet, acrostic, haiku+acrostic, and free form. My favorite poem out of the entire collection is Wings (Acrostic).


Wearily little sparks of life flutter

Into the great abyss – chasing away

Nightmare’s frozen

Grasp on our dreams

Shattering fear.

You can purchase the book in paperback here and the ebook for $0.99 here.
