What if … ?


What if …?

What if the flow of unpredictable words you adore
and wait with impatience to hear,
because it comes with the language of my heart,
with the alphabet of my existence,
what if this continuous flow one day stops
and I have no more beautiful things to tell you,
no more stories of miracles to share with you?

Will you go to the first bookstore and replace my fairy tales
with a novel randomly chosen from the first bookshelf you saw?
Or will you try to find new inspiration to touch my lips with,
so I could speak to you again?

What if the brilliance, the enigma in my eyes
that you always wonder how to explain,
because it comes from a world of mystery,
from a land not mentioned in any geographic maps,
what if this secret of my look one day is gone
and I have no more potential to see you as someone special,
no more effort left to look at you with love?

Will you forget the color of my eyes and discover
new eyes to look at, in the crowd of people ahead of you?
Or will you make me see the different, non-existing side of you
and make me love you even more because of it?

What if the temptation that comes out of my body
and you put on pedestal with a triumph, ignoring our weak powers,
glorifying the first time you owned me,
what if this allurement, together with my body,
one day turns into ashes and I have no more feelings to offer,
not even a single act of care?

Will you accept the dry lust from a woman-stranger you will
accidentally meet in a bar, drunk, because you no longer have me?
Or will you read all scientific books to learn new ways to wake up
the volcano of hidden passion, buried deep inside of my body?

What if my heart that is the center of our lives,
both, mine and yours, because is connected to your heart
like a mom and a baby with an umbilical cord,
what if this heart one day choose to take a different path
and I have no more stability to comfort you with,
no more hopes and dreams to go after?

Will you stop hoping and dreaming too and take the road
to nowhere so you could forget about the memories of me?
Or will you collect in a silver jar
two drops of rain, piece of sunshine and a snowflake
and give them to an African magician to create
a new heart I can love you with again?

What if in just one day what we thought is good for us
suddenly appears not to be?
Will you surrender and accept the waste of tune with silence,
like many others did?
Or will you still stand by me and climb mountains, swim oceans,
make the impossible possible to bring it all back ?

Seasons winners

Seasons winners

The plan for the very last post of the challenge was to select a winner for each season, but after I’ve read them all again it seemed really difficult to choose only one post. And then Victoria from liv2write2day had a Monday Morning Writing Prompt–Random Creativity where we had to open the dictionary to random pages and choose words about ten times or oftener and to construct a poem or short piece of prose and the idea came to me. I chose lines of your posts and here is my Thank you poem to all of you that took part in the challenge and shared with me time and thoughts!

Four seasons and a bit more

In a challenge we engaged
our minds and strength.
Into the light of Spring
blossoms were dancing
to the tune of change.
Feast for our senses,
the sun has returned.
Desires in flowers duet,
we celebrated youth
with free breaths,
to the moment when nature
will be awake again.

In a summer bliss
childhood memories touched
the darling buds of May.
Sultry, lighting sparks
and chaos within our hearts,
we dreamed of shimmering
jasmine scent.
The touch of the wind on pears,
the kiss under summer rain,
gave us love and passion
with sea taste.

We made a wish for forever Autumn,
we hoped to find a land East of Eden
while the leaves kept falling,
accepting the inevitability
of this lonely season.
Sweeter than a butterfly,
the memories of Midnight in Paris,
honored the red and gold colors
of a splendid sunrise.
Fresh beginnings to forget
the Waltz of death before we too,
find ourselves lost in a sad music.

Quietly pirouetting in on
silvery-toed slippers of snow
Winter came on the wings of eagles.
Like a frozen rose and a February song
the stars whispered Christmas tales
in the Midnight blue to hide
the shadow of a smile,
the cry of a lonely wolf.
And the warmth seemed so distant
but we still appreciated winter,
for it was and it will be
the spring of genius.

And the beginning marked the end,
where many thoughts were shared.
Still we rise to the sound of
tree songs and soulful freedom,
treasuring the love for words and wisdom.

Thank you Jamie, Cherlyn, Corina, Victoria, Eclipse, Mish, Leo, Jingle, Nimue, Melanie.

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 …
