Sunshine

Sometimes,
I fall deep,
into the abyss,
of my shadow,
larger than life,
it engulfs me,
and I forget…
all I have to do,
is turn around,
and face,
the sunshine.

Dreaming of Spring

Sometimes, winter feels so long
that she forgets about spring…
Spring, and the green green grass
and the blooms of fresh flowers…
the smell of earth after rain
and songs of birds she loves hearing again and again
as the sun shines on her heart…
making art, with words
that only come with spring…
so until then she lays on fresh snow
and she dreams, in hopes of spring.

Rainbow

That day…

The world forgot to be kind,

and you forgot to be patient,

and in between figuring out who you were,

and where you came from,

and why you were here,

the clouds of life,

poured on you,

and your heart cried with the rain…

but,

when it was over,

and though the world did not change,

you felt lighter and soul felt cleansed,

and you noticed the smiles among the frowns,

and drenched in what was your pain,

you found that little piece of joy again,

you followed the rainbow of life.

I will start with one tip that has helped me…

Personally, I feel authenticity in connecting with fellow bloggers has really helped me grow. Reading the works of others and leaving a thoughtful comment goes a long way and makes the writer/photographer want to engage with your blog instead of simply stating ” Check out my blog” without any other comment. It is actually one of things that can turn someone off towards you, as it may come across as you having no interest in that person’s blog apart from marketing your own and that does not allow for an authentic connection. We all want our works to be read but we need to put an effort to connect and genuinely read someone else’s work instead of using it as a promotional tool…promotion will happen organically if the connection is made.

Happy Valentine’s

Love blossomed in spring,

Love bloomed in flowers,

Love laid on green,

Love laid for hours…

Love followed the sunshine,

Love landed on summer,

Love flew with breeze,

Love flew for hours…

Love found your heart,

Love, it found forever.
