Revisit 0.1 – Writing 201 Poetry day 2: Gift, Acrostic, Simile

Reading between the lines
Energy flow fluctuates.
Could it be?
In another life,
Empty promises are concealed in soft pastel wrapping
Volatile outbursts precede the emergence of pastel wrapped boxes, heart shaped cards.
Enabling control
Deflating the bubble of joy that had begun.

With a move to warmer climes
I invite more light in, the darkness slips away;
Taking with it the bad memories and any trace of controlling forces.
Heart free, finally.

Love yourself! more shout the books, it’s been that same page for months now.
Oh, your words arrive just in time like a cool wind
Velvety and soft
Eyes close as your energy wills me on.

One of the things I enjoyed most about taking part last year in the Blogging University poetry 201 last year was the challenge of creating poetry inspired by the daily workshops. I often found myself jotting a few ideas, drafting a poem and then a few days later completing and posting. It was great to see the different tangents other participants had taken the subject and the online community feeling of creating together.

I like going back to poems and overtime crafting and shaping them till I feel they are ready and no more editing is required. With this version I think I’ve made it less dark and more coherent. What do you think?

Writing 201 Day 5: Map, Ode, Metaphor

A recent road trip brought me back here….

Driving Along the edge

Morning meditation, open road revelation.

As close to the edge as your vehicle allows

as the sea view below wows.

The sunrise a few hours earlier has cast its net for the day

capturing my optimism and imagination.

The space between me, the edge and the sea seems to

demand an appearance,

a morning welcome or roar.

Poseiden perhaps?

or something, someone similar.

Soothing sea,

I clearly see the beauty in the natural elements of

this mornings north eastern coastal view.

Driving on blues skies and open sea continue up ahead.

Venus Williams: Tennis’s Big Sister

Great article just like Serena, Venus is really inspirational. I am tennis fan and love to play too!

Media Diversified

by Christienna Fryar 

A few weeks ago, a black woman won Wimbledon. She beamed as she received her trophy in the stands. Venus Williams; 2016 Wimbledon doubles champion. She’s still got it.

As her younger sister Serena has marched her way toward G.O.A.T status, it’s become all too easy to lose track of Venus. Yet it’s only in comparison with her sister that Venus seems inconsequential.

Venus 3Aside from Serena, Venus is the most successful women’s tennis player currently active. In a career that has spanned two decades, a list of her achievements include seven grand slam tournament victories and 49 singles tournament wins in all, more than anyone currently playing (who’s not named Serena Williams). She won Olympic singles gold at Sydney, won the WTA year-end tournament in 2008, and she and Serena are three-time Olympic doubles champions.

Venus heads into Rio 2016, likely her final Olympics…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow

Rigde walk Chilterns

Looking South thoughts from the working day float away

Now they are moored on the word tomorrow.

My eyes soak in the greenery below,  and slowly drift to the clouds in the far distance

The clear sky directly above mirrors my mind.

Feet turn west following the path along the ridge-way to unknown views

the sun will soon set. (Narrow)
