Tracks in the Snow

Everything in and around Denmark

One night
one longer than usual
night
when the snows fell,
when the dogs howled
when the moon hid,
and you,

And what of you
my dearest, my love?
how I searched in vain
the tracks in the snow
leading away from me, leading
somewhere, someplace
where I was not,

When the snows fell
was my heart breaking
were the howls of the snow dogs
signaling something
something hidden, away away
something out of my reach
out of my sight?

One night
one longer than the others
when we held each other forsaking
all others
when the dogs sang
to the moon, to the stars
when the dogs sang
to our love,

How I searched for you
my dearest, my love
when the clouds rained down
like snow,
when the wolves howled
when their tracks disturbed yours
disturbed yours,

When we loved each other
when the sun shone
when the…

Orion horizon

Pinangel

Touched the surface of a black hole,

Upon meeting the event horizon Orion glared back at me,

To remind me that if there ever was a place I belonged

I would have to free myself of this gravitational pull,

Let go of the self that falls within

And return to my journey

With equal and opposite force

As the emptiness that had brought me

To touch the surface of a black hole.

“The Free besieged” by Sofia Kioroglou

His intuizione musicale
totally new in the until then known art
with a language, a map of a terra incognito
of transcendental abstractions and idealistic notions

His ideal was unfettered Greece
the crisis still felt today
the Pandora’s box discovered
many a skeleton uncovers

I recognize you by the fierce edge of your sword
Liberty so sacred and so rare
in an era where ” ethnos” is emotively achromatic
Solomos ” The Free besieged” an urgent call for an exodus.

Α few words about Dionysios Solomos – * Dionysios Solomos, the Greek National poet born in Zakynthos Greece: Dionysios Solomos (1798-1857) was born on the island of Zakynthos.

The Little Crumbs

Dream Desire Achieve

IMG_3016Crumbs.

when I ponder its meaning,
it reminds me about
little things often overlooked,
little details sometimes missed,
little pieces behind the big picture…

In search of the glorious years
We lose sight of the little months,
Maximise the little days
And the months will flourish,
In search of the golden days
We overlook the little minutes…

little words of hope, little smiles,
little pats on the back, little prayers,
little acts of kindness and selfless love;
little things that may seem inconsequential,
but do make a difference when put together…

Crumbs.

as we pursue the big picture
may we not forget,…
The Little Crumbs in life.

“She”

Talking to myselves

La mémoire se Fane she whispered… and then whispered she

This life is not mine and you are not me

Perhaps just a fraction… perhaps just a start

A small tiny fraction of what makes the whole heart

She did not like she but she adored she

She wondered what time she stopped being “me”

When she laid forfeit to this life of her own?

To be Eleanor Rigby every time she left home?

Hiding behind this mask she called she…

When, she wondered… will I become “me”–

Today’s Featured Blog…Peace of 8!!

peaceof8

IMG_4904.JPG

Night panic, a cold white wake
brings things of magnitude that quake
and shake.
War, poverty, crime and deep, deep heartache.
Love could cure all that, yet
we won’t let.
Should I pay the cable bill or buy
eggs and bread and wine; and why
do we have so many pets
when we can’t afford the vet?
Will my kids get fat cancer from much too much
sun and Cheez-Its and sugar and such:
I should have enforced more veggies and s.p.f.
It wouldn’t have quelled or waned or weft
the art of living, and does the itchy spot on my shoulder
mean ugly death is coming instead of older
age from which one day I don’t wake.
I fake
pretending not to care how I love and leave this place:
I WANT to light the world with a flaming embrace
but the fire it scares
hot and bare
and…

You Put A Spell On Me

Dream Desire Achieve

You put a spell on me,
Like one in a trance,
Eyes burrow into my thoughts,
Words burn within,
Spellbound- unfathomable love!
In a daze I open my life,
In a jiffy You dethrone my old heart-
Waterworks, in buckets,
Droplets of joy, ruined mascara…
Lies and lustful manipulations,
All gone!
Good riddance! Bad rubbish!
Divine metamorphosis!
Absolute transformation!
A new heart! A new life!
Saved… Changed… I am!

Daily Prompt: Trance

To Be The Best

Dream Desire Achieve

IMG_2282

Hold tenaciously to the dream,
Don’t let it slip away with the clouds
Nothing comes by accident
No good thing comes without hard work

Substandard attitude is not an option
If we must reach for skies

To be good
Is not good enough
To be better
Is better than good
To be the best
In the best there is to be

Dream. Desire. Achieve.

Happy New Month.

Daily Prompt: Substandard

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Dream Desire Achieve!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Dream Desire Achieve:

 

 

Here is an excerpt from the Dream Desire Achieve about page:

ABOUT ME

img_1785

Hello, my name is Obioma Ibe- (Obioma means good heart). I am a lawyer from Nigeria, though not practicing yet in the UK. I am a loving wife and mother, a committed and dedicated Christian. I currently live in the U.K. I enjoy reading and more importantly, writing. Currently, I have no areas of specialisation or literal niche but rather I enjoy writing about everything that captivates her mind and that which conforms to my Christian faith. Talking about my faith in Jesus is very important to me, so it will always be a recurring feature in my posts. I enjoy the ability to create literature out of anything, the ability to explore every facet of life without inhibition or tradition and allow my mind to harness the deep cores of ideation and fantasy.

 

My point of view: there is a line in every thing you see; there is a poem, a song or simple words waiting to be written. Ask the trees, run from the glaring sun or stare away endlessly into galactic stars, deep into the crust of the earth’s core or far above the third heavens; if you open your mind, creativity and inspiring words will captivate your imagination. A wellspring of undiscovered piece of literature around you does abound!

 

My blog is Dream Desire Achieve. Every thing on earth today was someone’s dream before it became a reality. Every project, every skyscraper, from stationaries to books, from household furniture to technology, every single item we use today was once in the dream, in the mind and brain of someone. They acted and fuelled that dream- today we have better lifes. You and me can make a difference too when we connect to our passions and dreams. “With God, nothing shall be impossible, for to him that believes there will be a performance of the things spoken by the Lord to him/her.”

 

From one writer to another: The pen is mightier than the sword.

You can find Obioma’s logo in my sidebar and on the Partners’ Page at the top of my website!  When you visit be sure to tell her Danny sent ya!
