Monthly Archives: May 2014


All these muses, plots and storylines just get to me too much sometimes.

Why do I feel
Have I taken it
Too seriously
For real?

It could never have
Worked out anyway –
I’m taken, and now I know
He is too
Far apart we are.

The curse of the writer
This vivid imagination
A good story requires
While in reality
I crash and burn.

Will I wake up
Feeling alright again?
Perhaps like always,
A blank new page
Another new day.

Daily Prompt: Mind Reader

That last person who
Caught my eye is the very man
Who’s sitting chillaxed
In his cosy armchair, catching up
On all forms of news
And I guess, unlike me,
Thinking in particular
Of nothing.

Daily Prompt: Great Expectations

This is quite a sidetrack from the original prompt but it’s still got to do with my (ever-changing) expectations of myself for this life.

I used to believe
I could do just anything –
My goals, objectives and dreams
Everyone’d see what I see

But as I grew older
Made rueful and realistic by reality
Dashed hopes, wishes and expectations
When those I trust failed me

Then I was still, unwavering
So the truth of life came to light
Nothing can we expect, except
An unfolding of what will be

I hold not the reins to my life
But life in its spontaneous glory.

Daily Prompt: First Sight

Wow, I just recently began a short story with something like today’s prompt. Here is the excerpt that describes it below. Click here to read the whole of part one, which leads to part two. All suggestions for part three are most welcome as my muse chose to depart at that point. 😉

Unbelievable resonance.

That was the first thought that came to my mind. I could feel my hair stand on my arms and neck and the thrill down my spine as he continued his repertoire on the stage with his band mates. It was the first time I paid attention to them, and the first time I heard that song.

It was the first time I heard him.

And how his voice penetrated the depths of my soul. It was deep as the sea, yet unpretentiously gentle as the morning sun. It killed as instantly as it revived. And there he stood, unaware of it all, a faint smile curled around his lips as he wiped across his brow with the back of a checkered sleeve while the crowd screamed for more.

He was confident and he had swag, yet somehow, there was an untouchable core – carefully concealed, recoiled and brooding. A strange surge of emotion rushed through my veins and I stopped for a moment to ponder what it was, then quickly brushed it aside. I had to speak with him.

Daily Prompt: Just Another Day

Somehow I’ve been
Uninspired; perhaps it’s
The new prompts presentation
Or more likely the impending
Deadlines I need to meet

So my daily routine goes
Work, meals and coffee breaks
Mundane yet fulfilling somewhat

With that a little announcement
Of going on a little hiatus
So please forgive my absence
But more poetry and prose soon
In return for your patience. 😉
