Message from Writer

Hello :-) thank you for stopping by! Any feedback is greatly appreciated and warmly welcomed.

My writing is mostly inspired by random thoughts, people, and interesting observations that cross my path. Always working towards improving my writing.

P.S. It's farewell to WtW after mid-February; I'll miss you guys so much. :'(

Chasing Desire

FREE WRITING

Endless blue horizons
Beckon me from my shore
And so I've set sail
Not knowing why,
Wanting all the same.

Countless years of
Learning how to yearn
Is not easily unlearned.
There is
No real destination,
My heart will tell me
Where it is
My soul so desperately seeks.

Till then, I will go on
Chasing desire.

Brilliance

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

Bright, bright, bright—
I am bright like the sun
I am bright like the night.

Because I can,
I was a prince, I was a princess.
But even royalty feel pain, so
I am in pain today.

Pain is such a pain!
Pain is that annoying presence
I will not give in to.
Not to my body, not to my bones!

Because I can,
today I’m a queen,
today I’m a king.
I will not
bow down to pain!

prayer of brightness

PROMPT: Intentions and Invocations

This was for me a startling spot of timelessness and gratitude that took me momentarily away from the busy day-to-day life. I'm so glad you wrote this! I enjoyed reading the poetic metaphors and I did feel a tad brighter...

A Post to Remember

FREE WRITING

I have enjoyed every moment spent here over the brief past two years. I still remember the first time one of my work was mentioned on their blog during the 2016 Flash Fiction competition. I was incredibly excited -- after all, people want their art to be noticed, their work to be validated. So I kept at it, writing and giving peer reviews. It was through both that I found my way to winningthe peer review segment for 2017...

Parallel Lines

PROMPT: Solastalgia

An endless horizon where
The wind whispers the stories
Lost over the aeons.
Parallel blue, blue lines
Promise a brighter future
Beyond. Skyscrapers to shards,
Grass plains to dusty ruins.
You'll turn to the sea
That has outlived moons and stars.

At the end of our time
(If you do indeed live to see it)
Nothing will remain
But the sky, the ocean
And the infinite stories they hold 
In the space
Between them.

Dissatisfied

PROMPT: In Motion

Will the winds, swifter!
Rile the rain, louder!
Spur the storms, brighter!

Just the sensation
of breathing and feeling
will never be enough.

Rebel against gravity,
forget what physics
might ordain;
dreams are meant
to be.

They tussle and spill
over into the day,
leaping out of hibernation
to lurk under my words.

They dare me
to construct a reality better
than in my dreams.
Can't you?
Can't you, too,
make it happen?

Dissatisfied

PROMPT: In Motion

Rebelling against gravity,
forgetting what comes
with the ground --
the sky sings to me.

Higher, swifter, further:
I challenge winds, rain, storms,
laughing
when I lose 
because
just the sensation of being alive
fills me
unbearably full.

You fall behind
only when you stop trying 
to use your gift.
And why would you,
when this reality
is better than your dreams?
