#Haiku Prompt Challenge 36 – Field, Beacon

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #36 – Field, Beacon

 

Light force

 

Field of infinite

possibilities, out there

Beacon from within.

This haiku came to me almost immediately as I look at the two word prompts (mhmm…I wonder why); and as I write this post, this song kept nudging at me.  So here is the music video of an amazing singer with an incredible voice, who has lived what seems to be a rather tumultous life, with her 2001 award-winning song ‘Shine’.

Wow, what a lot of adjectives 🙂  Enjoy!

Miss, ever wondered

Why your words don’t matter much

That’s all in  the past?

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – “The art of writing”

Silver Threading’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday 

 

Flaubert quote

 

It still amazes me how often I begin writing certain of the direction, only to find myself lost.  Then I have to stop and ask myself, “am I really lost?”  I get to explore my belief systems, my values, my priorities – to ask myself if I truly believe that which I am writing, or am I merely parroting. I ask myself ‘why?” and be open to other possibilities.

The journey is exciting.  And no, I am not lost.  I am right where I am.

May we find different parts to ourselves in our meanderings.

So, what’s your initial reaction to the quotes?

Stop and then, what do you think of the messages?

What impression does the person who stuck these on the wall leave with you?

Wishing you good fun and joy,

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Solitude

Silver Threading’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday 

Solitude & I

Guided by Silver Threading’s quote about the self of a writer, this one by Rainer Maria Rilke (an Austrian poet and novelist) caught my eye… and my heart and soul.

Solitude, something which I need and long for.  Without it, I suffocate.  I need my escape to a world of silence and being alone – where I let my mind wander, where my so-called inattention is not brought to my attention, where I play whimsy, where my imagination takes hold.

Solitude sustains me.

And so it is that I took this photograph (yes, that’s my shadow :-)) during one of my long walks on the beach during a recent family holiday.  Waking up early while the house is quiet, I tiptoed out the front door and headed to the beach.  Feeling the cold wet sand as I took brisk steps along the long stretch of sand, what bliss! Wandering barefooted into the surf, letting the sea water gently caressed as it came to shore.  I had a small window of opportunity – an hour before families headed down to the beach and the squeals and laughter of children were heard. Some yoga and meditation did not go astray.

So, solitude – my dearest friend. Do not stay away too long 🙂

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – “Let your words live on”

Silver Threading’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday 

My, my, my
Let your bright light shine
Let your words live on
Far beyond this life
Beyond this life


Now, doesn’t that remind you of writing…? 

This is the chorus from Matchbox 20’s song, “My, My, My”.  This is most likely my favourite song of theirs, because it reminds me of Me.

Enjoy!

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – T S Eliot

Silver Threading’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday – T S Eliot

 

Emotions

Poetry may make us from time to time a little more aware
of the deeper, unnamed feelings which form the substratum of our being,
to which we rarely penetrate;
for our lives are mostly a constant evasion of ourselves.

                                                                       T. S. Eliot

Talking dirty … about Beauty

 

Chinese beauty in traditional costume  “Beauty. The power by which a woman charms a lover and terrifies a husband.” 

    Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) American writer, satirist

 

 

 

Being Chinese, it is imperative for me to put across alternate/different image of beauty? 🙂

  Till next time,
