Lie under the moon…

In quiet nights

when the heart rains

with cloud of grief

we know as pain

silently falling

against the mind

and no space

is enough to hide

you know

cause you have tried

so you just lie

under the moon

and drift with the tune

of the heart

as it rains.

Sky of the world

Lost

in the songs of nowhere and everywhere

following the sky

of the world.

Thank you for giving me this morning

This is part of a prayer song we learnt in primary school, thought I would share as it had been on my mind lately. 🙂

 

“Thank you for giving me this morning

Thank you for everything that’s new,

Thank you, that I know my worries

Can be cast on You”

 

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Virtual Blog Tour – The Stars And The Journey

reno rock logo new

 

 

I will be honest, I was a bit hesitant to do this tour when Belsbor first told me about this…the reason was, I did not quite know if there was any process to my writing and  if I could do justice to this tour; however, after giving it some thought, I came to a conclusion that this was unique and something I had not done before, so getting out of my comfort zone, I was honoured and grateful to accept this from Belsbor. You can see his Virtual Blog Tour (VBT) Here: http://belsbror.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/genuine-gems/

Belsbor is a versatile blogger, showcasing posts ranging from poetry, to short stories and  life events.  He is also a great influence and a motivator for  new, experienced and somewhere in between bloggers (like myself)  here at wordpress. If you have not seen his blog yet, I suggest you do so now as you are certainly missing out!

 

Now on to the Stars of this Tour! It was hard for me to pick three as this community is filled with so many of you, it is like watching the night sky! But as per requirement here are three amazing bloggers who I am so honoured to feature  today! They are indeed stars in all aspects spreading their light and message through each post in their blogs. They lift your heart up with beautiful words for the soul, and connect with you in the day to day aspect of life, so you never feel alone.

 The Stars

 

Original Dante:  If you want to read poetry and creative pieces that is meaningful and always evokes emotion from the heart, this blog is the place to be. I admire each post and writing in this blog and he definitely holds true to his words that he says about himself in his about page ”  I promised myself, never to publish half-baked pieces of writing, only my best; striving for the original. Stick around, I’ll make it worth your while.” – And he does. His work is inspiring, genuine and he always makes it worth while .

 

 

Rcrate:  Rose’s poetry will touch your heart in the most beautiful way. Her simple yet genuine writing will make your heart smile and fall in love with her poetry. She states: ” I’ve always had a love of poetry and a great appreciation for 19th century literature. ” And her love and appreciation comes forth in her work. Her short pieces connects with the reader in the most gentle way, and she is definitely a poet who inspires me.  I highly recommend everyone to check out her lovely blog and writing. 

 

 

Ronovanwrites: Ron is an author and a versatile blogger whom I have come to admire as someone who can connect with his audience at a personal level through the content of his posts. He is very informative and I encourage all bloggers (especially new ones) to visit his blogs for some great tips and links for writing, and to get some great encouragement. His writing is genuine, he states , “I want to share my world as I rediscover it after having lost part of it not long ago in a mind jarring way”, and though it is sad to learn that he had to go through that experience, I am glad we get to to see the world he shares through his blog, as it is indeed memorable. 

 

The Journey

 

Now, back to questions on my writing process which I will try to answer the best I can. 🙂

1.) What am I working on?

At this point, as some of you may know from my previous posts that I am a bit busy so not really working on anything… But I am very spontaneous when it comes to writing, if the idea arrives it has to be written or I will not be able to sleep – literally! Most of the poetry I have posted on this blog has been a result of spontaneous combustion 😀 . I have also been working on some long term projects of various fiction that are on hold for the moment.

2.) How does my work differ from others of each genre? &  3.) Why Do I create what I do?

I feel my writing is more simple than the other creative minds of this genre. I write with both my heart and mind and I hope to connect with my audience in both places. I do not know if that makes me different…  I write because I love to write and my spirits are boosted when I connect with my readers through my writing.

 

4.) How does your writing creative process work? 

As I said my writing is very spontaneous, I am constantly inspired by nature, by my loved ones, music and on occasions by sorrow I see or feel around me. I am empathetic by nature ( I think most writers and artists are), and a lot of my writing is also inspired through that. I detest editing. Almost all of my poetry is the very first draft that I write. I feel you are in that moment once and changing it would change the feeling you had when you first wrote it. It does not mean I have not played around with some words and edited any of my pieces, I have, but for the most part they have been the first draft. As for my fiction, I grudgingly take on the editing aspect. 😀 I admire creative minds as they inspire me a great deal, and I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many of them here in this community as well as in my personal life.

 

That is all folks!

 

Thank you all for taking the time to read this VBT, I hope you visit each of the stars and see their amazing work! Thanks again to Belsbor for the opportunity! Have a great day everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

Happy First Day of Summer Everyone! – Some old Summer music for the soul

You Go To My Head Lyrics – Billie Holiday

You go to my head
You linger like a haunting refrain
And I find you spinning round
In my brain
Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne
You go to my headLike a sip of sparkling burgundy brew
And I find the very mention of you
Like the kicker in a julep or two
The thrill of the thought
That you might give a thought
To my plea, casts a spell over meStill I say to myself
Get ahold of yourself
Can’t you see that it never can be
You go to my head with a smile
That makes my temperature rise
Like a summer with a thousand Julys
You intoxicate my soul with your eyes
Though I’m certain that this heart of mine
Hasn’t a ghost of a chance
In this crazy romance
You go to my head, you go to my headThough I’m certain that this heart of mine
Hasn’t a ghost of a chance
In this crazy romance
You go to my head, you go to my head

Music of the cosmos

Perched on the branch of silent reflection,

you drift with the moonbeam,

to the stars,

your heart lost,

to the music of the cosmos.
