happy first day of spring! it’s a good day to reflect on what matters, what we should keep up with, and what we should let go.
my friend Gina, singledust, is hosting a poetry challenge this week at dVerse, i couldn’t resist the topic, so i’m joining in!
“I am hosting Poetics this week contemplating the Tanpura Principle in writing. Do you have a poetic hum in the background of your life that inspires your writing? How does your non-creative life affect your writing process? Tell us in a poem this week at dverse!“
not sure how I got here influenced by others of course the vanity of having a Ph.D. degree to understand the nature of beings to find the cure meetings and people competitions and deadlines hiding my feelings and not showing weakness perfection in each moment Stop, breath and listen looking for freedom I isolate myself solitude and silence writing outside the lines messing up letting my feelings explode between colours and paper clips to find a balance to breathe my true-self next day I’ll be ready a smile on my face a word of encouragement a surprise of a new result observing the miracle inside a cell keeping my words and feelings for later on when they will lay down on a piece of paper
this week was a kind of should or shouldn’t, what if……. i felt disconnected of my true-self, i let people and circumstances take control of my wishes. my intuition was guiding me to one side and i went to another.
right now i have snow flakes dancing in front of me, my cup of coffee and it’s time to reset.
the words for tanka tuesday this week are follow and lead, synonyms only! I’ve chosen pursue and clues, added them together in a double etheree. hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
hope evolve breath, focus intuition moments and people the message comes in clues learn the rule of soul knowledge shows up in mysterious ways nothing should be able to steal it it isn’t always clear at the moment joy is whole, consciousness, the commitment authentically an empowered person pursue it without limits and keep your senses synchronized confirming that you are in peace now letting go of any expectation
If Life gives you lemons, make lemonade. If the lemons are rotten, take out the seeds and plant them in order to grow new lemons.
I bought these pretty lemons this week and I had to take this photo before slicing them. For few minutes I was completely involved in the process of photography. I thought about the container to put them, I decided a bowl would be ok, so which bowl should I choose, a white one or a blue? The place and the the perfect light for the photo. My iPhone or my Nikon?
I spent few minutes in one activity that I love, photography. This could mean nothing, if I wasn’t getting ready for a work meeting, that I was freaking out about! I had to pitch few ideas that I knew before hand some people weren’t happy about them. I needed this time for myself as a ‘me gift’ to refocus.
