the poetry of my life through my writings and journeys

Welcoming waves as I see from a far. Amazed by the maze  that ponders a  willing heart.   Random thoughts that suddenly seep. Who would have expected it would swept me off my feet.

 How could you say it is not to bloom, if i see nothing but gardens of roses inside my room.  A dream is not a dream until you wake up from it, then suddenly you found yourself gasping for breath.

 The tide at its height and the fire in his eyes seem like signs for that unexpected mire. Although the sun is so bright, yet the clouds are in its forms, as if it’s about to welcome a storm. But how could you see an impending rain , if the sun is so bright it blinded your eyes.

                                                 The clock suddenly move, voicing out its call, saying it’s time to heed its alarms. You can go back to sleep and be lulled by its troll , or wake up and dive in and be ready for a fall.

  6. Your blog is lovely and especially original! You write in your own personal way and it’s amazing! Some of your quotes caught my attention like this one ”once upon a time every city has its haunted past. Sometimes, I’m haunted by my past” the comparison is surprising and thoughtful! I thought you may like the 3Days, 3Quotes challenge so I nominated you 3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge hope you will find it interesting and look forward to read your quotes!

  8. Thanks for the ‘Follow’, Joel!
    I see you’re mainly into poetry, but I certainly hope you’ll like photography as well?
    At my blog you will find more than 6000 ‘full screen pictures’ – all from Norway.
    And since you have no way of knowing what time I eventually posted certain pictures, I have constructed a parallell ‘INDEX’ (found under categories) where everything is listed alphabetically under their respective counties. You may also read how many pitures are included into each post, but – perhaps it would be advisable to google the location of Norwegian counties first? Knowing your way around will make it even easier, and at the end of each post there will always be a return link returning you to my INDEX. Please enjoy!
