Scattered Petals

A very exciting project is coming to an end and simultaneously a beginning.  My first collection of over 50 poems, “Scattered Petals,” will be in print July, 2012.  I will be seeking an interested Publisher at that time. 

A quote from the back cover:

“I have been in the process of creating this collection of poems for most of my life.  I like to write in the park, in the forest, on my front porch, and while walking the nature trails.  From this vantage, I tend to believe all of life’s answers lie within nature.  If you sit with nature long enough, it will interact with you, revealing its message.  Woven among the sometimes painful, sometimes joyous images are panoramas of nature’s all-encompassing power to nurture and heal.  Even as ‘scattered petals’ are carried aloft by the wind, there is something lasting for those who linger.”

If you are interested in learning more about this very special poetry collection, please contact me at or leave a comment.  Thanks for your interest.   -Jill Angel Langlois

The Writing Life


Oh yes!

My favorite place in the whole world

to sit cross-legged upon my hand-me-down love seat

with my Journal.

Oh joy of joys!

No comfort more surrounding

Nor silence more inviting

Than the hush of pen on paper

and a cup of hot, steaming tea at my side.

Drinking in the thoughts that crowd

searching for their meaning

soothing the day with each stroke of my pen.
