CadentTheme : Reality


really real


reality is real

Although not designated as synonyms for one another, this month’s featured word and theme (truth & reality) could very well be twins.

The dictionary describes both truth and reality with words such as, real things and real events, but the reality is, this segment isn’t about the word reality, but reality as a theme, and how it relates to poetry.

Exerpts from the first of a 3-part segment, be sure to visit CadentWords for more truth about this month’s reality and other highlights too!

Cadent Poems : Feb 26

Phew! Finally! Albeit minuscule, there is a little glimmer of hope to this poem after all!

If you’ve been following Apricity’s seaside tale, you might wonder if after Harold’s unraveling the next segment would reunite him with Marianne. Somehow, I think that’s a very unlikely turn of events considering how the latest chapter ended.

Click here to catch up on February’s tale about why the word apricity has been left out of the dictionary.

Now, if Harold can feel refreshed and hopeful after the dismal turn his life has taken, certainly we can get through to the next stanza of this week’s poem!

In the meantime, why not take a look at a few more love-theme inspired words. Visit Cadent Words’ gallery of WordPics to view heartfelt images accompanied with lovely words:

Be sure to follow until the end of the week. Not only do I guarantee a sweet ending to Apricities Me, but Apricity by the Sea will wrap up with a glimmer of hope too.

Cadent Poems : Feb 20

Even though this poem was written several years ago, I was recently reminded of how much I love apricity.

A series of sunny days came along after endless cloud coverage so I headed to the beach to soak-in the sun. Albeit covered in a warm sweater, jacket, gloves, boots, and tuque on – apricity by the sea revives me like nothing does!

Sunny February days are sometimes seldom for those of us who live in the northern hemisphere of our world. More often snowy, cold, windy, overcast, rainy – or all of these combined – when the sun shines, it really does feel like the heavens are opening up for a much needed reprieve!

You may have noticed that I no longer italicize the word apricity. That’s because I anticipate it will be included in upcoming and revised editions of English dictionaries, therefore I’m treating it just like any other worthy English word should.

Cadent Words : Payment Options

If I were a busker
Would you drop me a quarter
Or a dollar or two
In my cap as it sat
Next to me on the street?

Creative writing is an art form sometimes expressed by individuals who prefer to not perform in public, but the art itself is just as worthy as a performing singer, dancer, or actor.

Although I previously applied the word “donations” to encourage contributions, I prefer to think of the time and effort I apply to writing, and towards the development of the Cadent Words website, as employment. Albeit self-created and self-applied employment, I have and continue to work every day at earning a living with the pieces I’ve written.

I chose to set-up payment options with the Simple Payments Block available through WordPress – the website development host I recently subscribed to.

Payment options at Cadent Words are set in Canadian five-dollar increments. I opted to apply CAD$ because I live and work in Canada, and I chose $5 increments as the minimum dollar amount to ensure that on-line processing and transaction fees were met while allowing a minimal amount to be allotted directly to the author and website developer.

A little bit more about Cadent Words:

All content written, designed, and developed at Cadent Words, is produced by one individual – myself. Albeit conscientiously opting to apply a pen name rather than my personal name to a public domain, Cadence Beret is the sole employer and employee of Cadent Words and all the material produced and published is entirely created by the aforementioned individual – myself (unless otherwise clearly noted or specified).

Lastly, I want to specify that even though I have yet to incur the fees or go through the processes required to register Cadent Words as a business or corporation, I consider and declare the amounts received through Cadent Words as “income” that is generated and applied towards the fees required to maintain the website while also submitting a percentage as “wages” to myself as it is the only form of earnings received from the work I apply myself to daily.

If you have yet to view the website or read any content, please visit A website that is still very much in its development phase, I appreciate the viewers’ patience while I continue to strive towards developing a streamlined site allowing ease of access to creative content while offering visually appealing graphics to the written material.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Cadent Words, Cadence Beret, and more importantly, for showing an interest in the work that is dedicated to the art of creative writing.

Contributions are optional, but very welcome and greatly appreciated.
