The lingering embers of sweet grass on cold October nights

Dew on the morning honeysuckle that warmly wrapped us in July

Star-dust trailing across a seemingly never-ending August sky

September rains, the forest and full moon tide

Tiny breathes in December as snowfall blankets outside

Opening blooms and light announcing May has arrived

Sipping a warm latte while bundled on the beach, moments in April’s time

Laughter and glances, Shiraz, the scent of March for you and I

You asked what your scent was

It is the softness and perfection of taste, memory and time

Nature of nature

Savvy Raj

The nature of nature…

Nature is full of vibration.

Never truly silent

For it is alive with pure energy.

Always a wise companion.

In moments that you need

Some respite and understanding.

Its very nature shows the way.

Seek nature to energize your being.

Seek its freshness of spirit

When the world gets too weary

Every once in a while.

Nature never competes.

It is never in a hurry.

Nature never rushes you

It continues on its path

As it seems meant to!

Allow your own nature

to blend with the bliss of nature.

Sense its synchrony

Envision its endurance

Marvel its magnificence

Wonder at its wisdom

Connect with its composure

Understand its inate balance.

In itself by itself with itself .

In and around you.

Know you are nature

And nature is you.

Ultimate Oneness in the diversity

Such is the nature of nature.

Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


This is a great quote on a normal day, but especially so this month. Focus on the writing, get words on the page.  Write with abandon, banish your critic to a galaxy far, far away.  Listen to your gut, focus on your instinct, invoke your muse.

What are you writing today?


Keep on writing.

Megha's World

“There is no secret left in the fact that I am madly in love with you. My happiness glows on my face and my smile gives it away. I have tried hard but now I can’t do that anymore.”

–Sheila Johns

You left a trail for me to follow
little drops of love and passion
sprinkled here and their
on my soul
every time you touch me
and every time you make me whole
I was too naive to understand
I was too lost in your 
words laced with 
passion and desire
to know completely and for sure
that you left those
straight to your heart
those breadcrumbs for me to follow
I was too innocent to understand
that every time your fingertip
traces my curves
they are making a map 
on my soul
to find that hidden treasure
for me to look for it 
and to savor
for the time eternal
and every time…

‘The portrait of you’

DO NOT MISS The last stanza of John’s – THE PORTRAIT OF YOU!


The portrait of you

Phantom dreams led me to you. You were my illusion of perfection. I was flattered when you condemn me to loving you forever by a gesture of hello and releasing your veil of perfection. You create nuptial dances into early mornings and create portraits of never-ending love into the German Winter nights.

I recited poetry to you, deep into the midnight hours. We found the charity of peace and harmony enough to warm up the cold days and nights of the German Winter. Beneath the Spring moon. The utopia of love fell to earth. I learn the hollow heart cannot be seen when camouflage by the perfection of beauty. I learn beauty wasn’t perfection.

Just an asylum of wishes and wants to diminish and condemn hopeful men to want, what they should not need.

Old men in the old taverns talks of old wars and beautiful…
