~Keep Poetry~

shining tear

Where do writers go
When doors are no longer receiving
Where do a heart aches
When tears are not falling
I keep falling
Yet I refuse to remain on floor
So I stand beyond the falls
Just being a woman who wipes her tears
That keeps standing with a brave smile
So if you think you snatched away my words
Within a voice of a soul I keep reciting
The world would not call me a poet
Still the poetry in me carries on

The Breeze of Home

                                                     Originally uploaded by 

I have been wondering
At a sound of flute calling
The wind does not fight me
A friend that carries me home
I submit to the wind
Breezing me to a home
As my feet lands,
Subtle ground embraces me
I just sink in an aroma within a womb
Petals that sways within my arms
Momentarily I am bewitched
A home that somehow was missed

“Every soul keeps searching, the search does not stop for a soul to find its home. Some of us spend a lifetime of our human existence in search. Yet a soul does not need a tangible home to exist, just a tiny place filled in contentment become a home”

~Twinkling ~

Star not only on the Sky

In midst of darkness
It feels like a glittering star
How distant it is from all
Still remains a star
Cause all it can do
Twinkle through the night
Seems like hesitant sparks
Yet it glitters in the dark …

“The ups and downs of life, drains away your spark. Have faith in you, for you have been a glittering star within my gloomy nights. You have added many twinkles, creating a beautiful nights. Who ever you are, so distant as you are. Thank you for being a star, creating a shine within the dark.”
