In Need

Heartstring Eulogies

“This need I have for you, it echoes,
like your lungs, when you need air.”

I watch as the moon creeps up into the night sky and I begin to wonder if you’re feeling this same sense of longing as me. I’m wondering if you feel this pull too. You know the one. Where it feels like the only thing you want in this very moment is to be in the arms of your beloved. But it’s more than a want. It’s a need, deep in the marrow in your bones. It echoes, like your lungs, when you need air. So tell me, my love. Do you feel it too? Do you miss me as much as I miss you? Like it’s an open wound and the only thing that can heal it is these hands of mine?

Shifting perspectives

Savvy Raj

The truth, in the facades that may appear.
In understanding the real and unreal
The truths and the untruths
And everything in between.

Humanity stands perplexed
At times in the paradoxes of life
Confounded by challenges.
In the throes of confusion.
Sifting through to make sense of it all

Beyond the mirrored existence
Shifting perspectives in the making.
Yet knowing simply all as parts of the same source.

Chk this interesting video on the two sides of life and living .

Creating Stories with the Anonymous Voice – Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


I have a secret. It’s embarrassing when I am caught, and I discover someone is listening. Talking to myself, in my head and aloud is a normal occurrence. I assure you, my conversations are rather mundane. Where is my phone? Did I pay the bill? Should I buy lemons at the grocery store? Who is knocking on my front door? Why did I come into this room? Those are typical topics I explore almost daily.

Late at night when the house is finally silent, questions fade and grow quiet. The voice changes and my evening adventure begins. I have heard it since I was a child. It has told me bedtime stories, created imaginary characters, and fantastic worlds. It is my trusted companion. Together we work through complex issues, solving the day’s problems. I write the tales I tell myself and share them with my friends.

What stories will you tell…

2019 Daily Writing Challenge Day 178

Today Is Day 179 of the 2019 Daily Writing Challenge.

Did you write yesterday? Let us know your Day 178 word count in the comments.


What is the 2019 Daily Writing Challenge? It is simple: Write something every day.

Write a little, write a lot. Just write. You have all day.

It doesn’t matter if you write 5 words, 5,000 words or something in between. The idea is to establish a daily writing habit. If you miss a day, don’t worry. Write today and report tomorrow on your success.

A great journey begins with one step. A great writing habit begins with one word. Go!

Check back tomorrow for the Day 179 Report and let us know how you did.


Keep on writing.

Shadows of Thoughts

Charmed Chaos

Squander not
precious words and minds
are shadows
of thoughts seeking and drifting
into splendid light

colors of fire dance
brilliant mind
melodic syllables sing
music to poets

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge: No. 133 Synonyms only- Plan & Spend. I used ‘ideas’ for plan, and ‘squander’ for spend. The form is a double Shadorma.
