I’m back!

26 10 2011

Funny how you can forget about something so completely. It’s like my mind tossed my blog into the trash and left it on the curb. I’m amazed at how much has changed- the formats look so different…

So. Right. I suppose you’d like an update. Well… things have changed. A LOT. First of all: I have the sweetest baby brother in the world and he’s the reason I come home every day. And that’s pretty much it 🙂

Yes, this was pointless, and yes, I don’t know what I’m doing, but who cares? That’s the entire point of having a blog- to write whatever and do whatever to your hearts content. And I must say, I’m glad to be back.





The Wild

10 05 2011

Everyone’s a freak, undiscovered

except in the souls of socialites

even the meekest mouse is the wildest lion

stretch your fangs, sharpen those claws

do it inside, for the inside is out

and the downsides are uphill on

midsummer night, midnight moon

shards pierce our skin, yells

flurry  of shapes, moving shadows

calm waters turn to torrents

 fanatical music, made of stalking, shatters the tranquil night

it’s a sea of movement, a ripple of -stretch-

explode-

implode-

fly-

stars in my eyes, moon in my hair

light on my tongue that’s heavy with dew

dance, hunt, leap, stomp, swivel, swirl

don’t stop, won’t stop, can’t stop

energy is endless, for we are the first

the only

the untamed

the freaks in your life

because we-

-we are the wild

Back Once More

9 05 2011

To all who care, I’m back to the dashboard after a week’s worth of grounding! Yay! 🙂





The Dove

29 04 2011

I saw a dove in a tree
With white feathers and an orange beak
He looked at me as if to say
“Haven’t you had a wonderful week?”
I had to aggree, for the grass was green
The sky was blue and the birdies would sing
I had to aggree with the dove in the tree
“Yes, I have had a wonderful week.”





A Good-luck Wish for the Royals

28 04 2011

Oh, the bells, bells, bells
What a tale their terror tells
of despair!
How they clang, and clash, and roar!
Edgar Allen Poe, a poem

That poem is rather ironic in light of the latest events: in a day’s time, there will be held the joyous marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William (God bless them!). Hopefully, THOSE bells will be heard with jubilation, not misery. :)n Trust me, I’ve heard it enough on the news already, but I couldn’t resist the temptation to join the chorus of wellfarers for the lovely couple. I wish them a long and happy union, and pray that Kate will turn out to be a great Queen!! 😉
