Alone with the sand

`

Alone with the sand

there’s a fidgeting
in the sea tonight,
morbid lullabies,
delusions
knitting the shadows
of the waves and
the entombment
of the twilight.

coral reefs against humidity,
ships dancing
on the edge of salt
and the moon running scared
in terror,
that she will not find love,
she will not see
the chosen face,
but keep looking at
the ridiculously bluish sea,
keep searching
the Delphic ocean
for pearls and illusions,
for more than
a glimpse of imagination.

there’s a trap, a Siren’s fate,
blindly accepted after
the tide of a heartbreak.
there’s a time casting anchor,
to vanish, to mourn,
to swallow the soreness,
detached from the stars,
alone with the sand.

Season’s favorite challenge

`

When I started blogging, I stumbled on many prompts and challenges. I often thought I would like to create one myself and manage it through to the end. With my favorite season- summer- here and today’s morning coffee the idea came unexpectedly. I invite you to participate with me. Let’s enjoy some time together in the blog world.

Anyone is welcome!

The challenge will take place in July and it will include 5 posts.

2 July – Spring’s favorite

9 July – Summer’s favorite

16 July – Autumn’s favorite

23 July – Winter’s favorite

30 July – All time favorite

Each post has to contain your favorite: word, quote, poem, book, song, movie, town, animal, flower, food and image related to each seasonFor the last post on July 30, it should contain your all-time favorite.

If you are bi-or-multi-lingual and have a favorite word that is not English, please know the word is not limited to English. The poem may be written by you or by someone else. It doesn’t need to be titled with the name of the season. It needs to show what each season makes you write or think about. With the song you may include a video, but this is not a must rule. The town can be a place where you think a season is best spent, even if you haven’t been there. You can provide a recipe when you write about your favorite meal. Or, you can just name your favorite brand or include a little explanation of why exactly this is your favorite. Most of all the idea of this challenge is to share what we like with others. So be creative in any way you’d like! I would love to discover common or rare interests in the posts of others and to meet new people and be inspired by the desires of others.

After the challenge is over, I’ll choose the posts that I liked the most and create a winners’ tribute. My posts will be up every Saturday at 12:01 a.m. my time. I live in Athens, Greece. You will have a week – from Saturday to Saturday – to share your link in the comment section of my posts. Please feel free to use the banner for Seasons’ Favorite challenge that Sonam and I created. Thank you for the help Sonam! Also, I’d like to invite Cherlyn Cochrane from Over a cup of coffee. Cherlyn took part in a challenge called 31 days of blogging honesty, I enjoyed seeing her posting every day and now that the challenge is over, I’d like to give her more reasons to share with us her unique view on life. So, I think I said everything I was supposed to say about this challenge and if I haven’t, feel free to ask questions. I truly hope there will be enough people to find the idea appealing. I can’t wait for July and the first post of the challenge! Until then, be happy everyone! Peace & Love …

Never free

`

“What I’ve felt, what I’ve known never shined through in what I’ve shown. Never free, never me …”

~ Unforgiven – Metallica

Never Free

Inexperienced thirst,
torments of sorts,
transpired on pale skin,
life can no longer subdue
the agony, the intimacy.

Juvenile desires,
depleted, drained through
razors and pseudo bubbles,
the heart ignores dismally
the flames, the vows.

Peerless melody,
strings of unforgiven guitars,
elegance of  illusions left,
dreams that will never shine,
drifting minds, never free.

To my silent muse …
