About Ice


Passionate. Insomniac. Music Fanatic. Immensely flawed and broken.

I wouldn’t bore you with my life so to make it quick and painless. I will forever be a dreamer. I’ve been a wannabe writer since I learned to scribble my ABCs.

I am definitely a beach junkie.No need to say that I am caffeine freak. I devour books when crazy little distraction called life doesn’t get in the way. I am guilty of being a hopeless romantic. And most of all, I am a proud womyn loving Filipina.

I am hardly an expert on anything but if you want to get in touch with me, you may drop me a message here ice (at) caffeinatedsonnets.com or owl posts.

    love, love, love your work !!.. Caffeinated Sonnets was one of the first blogs I ever read before creating my own and it was very much worth the read. Check out my blog if you get the chance. Its fairly new but has potential…www.memoirsofaroseintheconcrete.blogspot.com

    1. Ice Canicosa says:

      Thank you very much 🙂 On blogging life, I am barely starting and I am just hoping to be able to keep the fire for as long as I can.

      I checked your blog and you’re definitely on the right track.

      Keep writing, I’ll be following your posts too 🙂

      1. I’m struck by your right-on take on relationships: the joy, the pain, the uncertainty. So, you see, your poems touch me. And thank you for reading my blog on poetry. This is a terrific site.

      2. Ice Canicosa says:

        Thank you for such kind words. I would greatly appreciate your take on writing – been hitting bumps lately. Is it possible to contact you through email?

    1. Ice Canicosa says:

      I deeply appreciate your kind words as I am a fan of your work (and your coffee icon :)).

      Thank you for joining me in this one incredible ride.

    Now that’s what I call keeping it real! Love it.

    1. Ice Canicosa says:

  4. My Tropical Home says:

    Hey Ice, Thanks for dropping by my blog. Creativity abounds here, keep it going!

    1. Ice Canicosa says:

      Hi Mary, I absolutely love your photos. Whenever I see breathtaking shots, the words just sort of follow. Hopefully, I get the hang of photography soon. I totally envy you 🙂

      Thanks for taking the time to read my posts. Keep in touch 🙂

      1. My Tropical Home says:

        Please don’t envy me Ice 🙂 Each of us has a gift, a talent, uniquely tailored to serve humanity and to return the glory to the Giver of the gift. Yours is with words, mine is…well I’m not sure if it’s photography as I am still learning it, but let’s celebrate what we’ve been given and not give in to Envy. I am glad that you enjoyed the photos. Again, the gift and glory belongs to God, not me. I’m just using and sharing it 😉 Thanks again.

      2. Ice Canicosa says:

        Very well said. Again, thank you for inspiration. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  14. bigriser says:

    Hello Ice, thanks for visiting my blog; as you can see–I’m repaying the compliment. My blog is new and as you probably can see it needs a bit of work. Would it be alright to contact you on some advice on how to go about it? Thanks from a fellow blogger.

    1. Ice Canicosa says:

      Hi, sure no problem. I am relatively new as well but I will try my best to help 🙂

      1. bigriser says:

        Hi Ice,

        How do you make that horizontal bar that you have your : Home button, of chasing raindrops, etc. appear?

      2. Ice Canicosa says:

        I think it depends on the certain WP theme that you chose (not too sure though). Mine was done via the widgets section, then I customized the menu.

        You may check out how to videos on WP to get the hang of it. http://wordpress.tv/category/how-to/


  15. farrell says:

    Thank you for liking my post. I like how you write in consonance with the mood of the photo. I am inspired by it.

    1. Ice Canicosa says:

      I try to capture my thoughts, hoping to get my message across either via the photo and/or the writings then hoping to get it right once at least 🙂

      Thank you for dropping by, Farell.
