Rich blue waters show a deep search for the words we thirst for, lurking deep beneath the coldest currents and provoking our irresistible desires to swim - and die - down there, frozen but found once that secret light appears.
Walking in the sidewalk,
With my arms crossed
And thousand of thoughts flooding my mind
Soft breeze brushing my hair off my face
As I went on
Walking to my favourite garden.
Sleeping in the lap of the nature with a mild scent of orchids and tulips
I realised the very essence of life.
Listening to the poetry of nature
Sung by the birds
Hummed by the leaves.
Living for others is the rule of nature
Like the sun never shines for itself
And the flower's aroma is not for it to take a sniff.
But change is the purpose of life.
A caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly
And cub grows up to become a magnificent lion with a mane
Denoting it's superiority.
Change is not served on a plate of gold...
My heart was chained up with your love,
And the best part is,
I don't wanna escape.
I wanna stay caged forever.
My name is Jack, sometimes I am also known as Mr Jack by my new friends.
I used to spend my days laying in the hot sun, wondering where I was going to find my next meal, or some clean water.
I even lost a bit of my ear due to a fight over dinner.
My face has been really swollen for a long time, and sometimes it is tough to breath.
My life changed one day, when these new friends found me laying on a police officers deck.
They picked me up and I hung out with them all day while driving around helping other friends of mine.
I recently found out I have stage three mass cell tumour cancer, and that is why my face was so swollen and sore.
But please don't worry, my life has...
I often cry passionately..
during these dark nights
and in some way
It teaches my sad heart ..
to love more deeply
remember more fondly
and laugh more heartily.
the heaviness of my sorrow
has taught me..
how brisk laughing feels..
I think ...When you're in love with someone truly, you take greater risks for her or him. True love provides you courage.
Come to me, my Darling!
I'm your safe haven amid the restless sea,
Your beacon light in the starless sky.
Come to me, my Darling!
And you will see your heart beating against mine,
Your breathes singing and shine.
Come to me, and I am thine.
Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,
The thing I'll miss the most is knowing that the guys in the locker room are all we had. There were no trades or cuts for us. So we knew that we had to win with what we had and that made us fight for one another that much more! Great question!
Ps I love seeing Anthony up in the corner for my stamp! That's awesome!
Through the Fenestra ...
The familiarity ...
Her pensive nature ...

The Ethos of lettrs
If we are we unable to take just a minute to sign a letter or thought for something or someone we care about, then what do have a minute for? I started this network of kindred spirits with the simplest of rules; you literally had to take time to write, with a one minute minimum before delivery or publishing. Did you know it takes the human mind an average of 58 seconds to complete an original thought or process a full emotion? Everything prior to that is reflex, reaction and impulse. That is the land of chats, snaps and tweets.
lettrs is the network designed for reflection, not reflex, of hand signed communications actually designed to last. It is perh...
After a good night's sleep, you wake up and stretch. You put your feet on the floor but feel a cold object instead.
You look down and are surprised to find a little heart-shaped bottle with a note attached to it.
"This potion will make anyone fall in love with you for the rest of his/her life. Use it wisely."
Would you use it or not? And why? Write a letter about it and tag it 'love'.
With impish delight ...
Her graceful presence ... tempting ...
School is coming to an end, the weather is getting warm, and the skies are getting more blue.
This is my favorite time of the year, and I couldn't be more happy.
Summer is close, and I think everyone is excited!
No worries, no commitments, and just time to relax.
I hope everyone ends this year strong, and enjoys a great start to their summer!
Dare I open this heart shaped bottle
Will love come to me full throttle
Can honest love ever be poured
In liquid form, a harmonious chord
Is this love worthy and real
If it isn't of your own free will
To change your desire and treat you with such
Selfishness in my heart would be too much
This false love cannot be sustained
'Tis better your whole self remained
Something so pure must never be blighted
Even if my love remains unrequited
To my integrity I must adhere
Your soul is too precious and dear
Forever and always I leave you free
Choose whether or not you'll love me
For all the tears that ran down my cheek
For all the nights I were asleep
For all your faces I saw in the clouds
I wish you belonged to me a little more
My vision is embossed with a pattern I can't unlearn
For you gave me the burns that can't unburn
I have become a distorted instrument you see
And the music I sing now holds no melodies
No matter how much my heart withers,
No rust can indulge my iron will
No flower can be softened by fire
And still no waterfall can raise uphill.
If a bee finds her hive
My hive resides in you........
