And back with Your second serving of Maria of Doodles and Scribbles is Her emotional and romantic poem “Maybe” with all of the Wonderings we have also experienced.

Maria describes herself in Her Motto: Scriblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul. Please be sure to read Maria’s About Statement – I loved it! Enjoy



I sit by the bedside table, hands tapping above the desk. The room is dark except for the faint light creeping from under the door. It’s 2 AM yet my heart and mind are still debating, “Should I ask you again?

I look at my phone thinking maybe you’ll change your mind. Maybe you’ll remember the laughter.  Maybe you’ll remember the stories that we shared together in those five years.

Rain, Rain

Please Welcome a new Friend – Maria of Doodles and Scribbles, here is Her beautiful poem Rain, Rain. This is such a masterful weaving of words that blends the imagery of the forest and the stillness of the mind as it remembers amid a cumulous of rage while remaining unperturbed. Come walk with Maria through this lovely poem and be – “drenched in the stillness of remembering”!

This is the first helping of Maria’s work today. Please enjoy and get ready for a second serving!


rainrain-smallRain, Rain

And the summer sky is a cumulous of rage
I am drenched in the stillness of remembering
Of what I have lost, of what I still have
But in the midst of the surrounding clamor
The pitter patter and the wind’s howl
My heart remains still— unperturbed, relaxed
Like the eye of a tornado devoid of wrath
