The Journey

The train chugs on steeply up the slope of the hill. The man, by the window, looks up from his diary. The sweet chill of the hilly gust through the half ajar window makes him wrap his jacket even more tightly. Through the gape, he gazes outside. The mellow rays paint the Bernese landscape in a golden hue. On the right, the ice capped peaks are just visible. As the train takes a turn, he sees an array of such snow clad mountains, glimmering in the aureate tint of the forenoon. The snow keeps melting and a stream or two trickles down from unexpected creeks in the rocks. He sighs at the beauty of it and glances on the other side. By now the train is coming to a halt at Wengen. A ver...

Dear Fantasy,
Even if I keep running away, promise me you will keep tailing me. And when I fall, when I am tired, when every step seems to be a mile, when the darkness surrounds me and the road gets tougher promise me that you will take me away with you. Somewhere far away from this real world, far from all the pain and sufferings, where no one can see us and let me hide in your arms and heal all my wounds...
Love
Reality

Dear Lady Skylark,

Thank you for writing to me!

I'm so thrilled and honored to receive your letter and the announcement that I have been awarded the Third Place in the 200th Skylark Challenge!! 🥳✨🎉🎊

I have been waiting in quiet anticipation for the announcements, albeit nervously, because I have been super excited since you sent out the prompt for the contest.

As an artist and lover of art, I couldn't help but set my eyes on the prizes! Honestly I wish I could have done better to win the art piece. I absolutely loved the color scheme, the abstract background, the Skylark and the beautiful haiku that goes along. 

Nevertheless, I'm happy with the verdict and look forward to the goodies! 😍✨...

Algunas veces  es mejor dejar pasar los sueños, ya sea por conservar lo mejor que se tiene, o para no perderlo por una ilusión.

Existen muchos pensamientos sin concretar, muchos sueños rotos por nuestros propios miedos.

Ideas vienen y van, el punto es no estancarse aún cuando se decide dejar ir una de ellas.

Oportunidades mejores vendrán, no cerremos nuestro mundo creyendo que no existen más días en esta vida, en los que podremos cumplir lo que anhelamos.

Únicamente nos queda asimilar el hecho de que no siempre se consigue lo que quiere, y seguir adelante, siguiendo con más sueños, trazándonos metas, cumpliendo más sueños y concretando más sueños, creando mejores oportunidades. No...

Dear Lady Skylark - Becca🐦,

Thank you so much Becca. I feel like I'm floating on cloud nine right now! Winning the challenge was really beyond expectation after reading other amazing stories by people. I am soooooooooo happy.

The feedbacks are another thing that am grateful for. I too thought in the second entry I'm being a little forceful with the words, but the idea was stuck in my mind and I just had to write it down. I'll give it another try, and see if I can do more justice to it.

As for the first entry Becca, I think I couldn't convey it properly, so I'll improve in that also.

Still I'd like to tell you what I intended in the story, and you might then be able to help me how I could ...

   We come in all shapes and sizes
   Our race, culture and creed vary
   We are not meant to be prizes
   Or a picture that you carry.

   We work hard to build our own lives
   While mothers, daughters, sisters, wives
   Deserving of equal regard
   To all those who tote their man card.

  I often retreat

          To the safety of my mind

                      Where I'm known to all.

I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
I'm left with emptiness that words cannot defend
You'll never know what I became because of you
You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind
You held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
While I was by your side powerless

Oh, my love
I miss you every single day
Tell me there's a river I can swim that will bring you back to me
Coz I don't know how to love someone else
I don't know how to forget your face
God, I miss you every single day and now you're so far away

It's breakin me, losing you
We were far from perfect
But we were worth it
Too many fights, and we cried
But never said we're sorry
Your shadow's still close, and I'm still in love
But somehow it still breaks my heart
We could have had this talk
And now you're so far away

And she finally gave up,
dropped the fake smile
as a tear ran down her cheek and she whispered to herself,
“I can’t do this anymore”

Sleep evades me because thoughts of you plagues my heart and mind.
How do I let you go,I mean truley let you go,without erasing all that we had.
But I feel to let you go,I have to let them go,all the smiles,laughs,the pranks we played,the memories we created. They all have to be let go but I don't know how or maybe I don't want to....

that touch of yours,  grooves inside my veins,
your breath pressurises and rushes the vibes
vibes that were so pure and so full of strength
can mould and bend the nerves all over
you are the fuel to my soul
you belong to me
you are a super power that touches me
even so far off the sight
you know what i mean
you are way, way more than i had ever imagined.

TRUE, PURE, & SURE

Love is always been an underestimated miracle to be.

Sebastián Bardina, el que apodaban "sardina", en una ingrata broma de la rima. Tan bueno y malo a la vez (dependiendo del ojo y la perspectiva), tan gran amigo como mal enemigo. Caminante de rectilineas sendas (mientras pudiese o la vida le permitiese), de corazón tan inmenso como tonto, dueño (bajo protesta) de muchas famas, de cientos de gracias y desgracias miles...

((minúscula descripción del personaje principal de mi primer novela: "Sebastián Bardina")).

If only we were given the driver seat for our life we probably wouldn’t have done a lot of things we already did.  But that’s not how life works.  All we can do is have faith and trust the timing.  Until then, enjoy riding shotgun.

              8 times I called you today.
             8 times                             I wish
         you had                                   stayed.
         8 times                                        you 
           always                                      left,
                 while                                   I
                        waited          for you
                               until    8 p.m.
                                    Eight 
                           times      you had
                  ignored                   my calls
            so you                              could get
        drunk all                                     night
