The Shape of Thought

The Shape of Thought

Have you ever wondered what a thought looks like? How about an emotion, can you illustrate it? Thoughts and feelings are something we experience every day. They influence our actions, and help define who we are. Everyone has their own way of expressing their emotions, and mine is with words.

The Long Walk Home

The Long Walk Home

Happy Monday, my friends!

I apologize for being scare these past few days I am just getting over the worst cold ever. I thought that I had survived the winter without getting sick … that idea went right out the window.

Today’s poem is about experiencing uncertainty. I think we’ve all had one of those days where you’re out at a friend’s, or in a new situation, and you don’t quite pay mind to the clock, or the possible consequences. When darkness falls and the fun is over you’re left with the facing the night … Figuratively or Literally.
Here is “The Long Walk Home”.

The Sun Song

The Sun Song

Spring is here….ish, and the weather was quite nice out today. As all of the cold dreary weather passes, and life begins to spring again I couldn’t help but feel inspired by all of the wildlife in my area.

The warm caress
of springs new dress
the wind that stirs your hair
the sound of life
the trilling calls
that ripple through the air
come and walk
and hold my hand
and smile to the sky
the warm caress
and smell of you
the hours drifting by
hold my hand 
and lie with me
against the old oak tree
until the cool
and then the night
as daylight fades away
take me home
and hold my close
and promise me you'll stay

I think it goes to say that all seasons must share their turn in the wheel of the year, however spring and fall are my favorite. Still cool, bot yet warm, and all of the colors. Sometimes I wish I could curl up and make the season last a little longer. What’s your favorite season? Do you have someone to share it with? Let me know in the comment 🙂

The Haunting Dark

I started playing the flute in elementary school. I was fascinated by my ability to express myself with something beyond words. My love for music has only grown since then, and I now play several other instruments as well. Ambient music is something that I’m rather new to. The best definition that I have heard to describe ambient music is that it should be interesting enough to listen to, and still be easy to ignore, or tune out. A balance between being present without intruding. This is one of my first attempts at achieving this balance, and I hope you enjoy it.

The Lost Girl

The Lost Girl

I was inspired by a song that was very melancholic, but beautiful. The energy of the music was very uplifting and I couldn’t help, but feel empowered. I remember feeling very much like the girl in the poem at one point in my life. I had gotten married young, and my husband was very controlling. When I had decided to leave him, it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Sitting there with the silence hanging so heavily in the air it was a wonder we didn’t suffocate. When he first left I felt a mixture of freedom and relief and fear. The struggle to survive and thrive is one that I have encountered before, and have an intimate understanding of. No longer am I the child in the storm.
