Daily Card Pull – 4 of Cups – ‘Tea Apathy’

It's been a day. A very, very chaotic day - neither good nor bad, just.. busy. Today's card of the day was the 4 of Cups, a card warning against apathy, disconnectedness, and contemplating too much on things - an accurate warning for me today.   'Tea Apathy' Busted knuckles match the pink and red… Continue reading Daily Card Pull – 4 of Cups – ‘Tea Apathy’

Word of the Day – Depredate – ‘Noon Time Sun’

Today's word of the day is depredate, a verb signifying to lay waste, plunder, or ravage. It's been a very interesting and trying summer. I hope everyone else's was much calmer and relaxing.

Word of the Day – Serendipity – ‘Serendipity’

I couldn't think of a better title for this poem other than the word I jumped off to write it. Serendipity is the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. 'Serendipity' Let's love again for a moment or two- Feel a little less fear, a little more ravenous. Come out and into the rain, leave it… Continue reading Word of the Day – Serendipity – ‘Serendipity’

Unprompted – ‘I Had Forgotten’

Not a word of the day poem! Decided to post something unprompted for once. 'I Had Forgotten' I had forgotten myself Many times in my short life. I had forgotten how to write, How to draw, how to live Unafraid and unannoyed by Every little obstacle that falls Before me unannounced. I had forgotten I… Continue reading Unprompted – ‘I Had Forgotten’

Word of the Day – Plausible – ‘Late Nights’

Sorry it's been such a long time since I posted anything. Life recently has been hectic. Between a housemate going AWOL and my great grandma passing away everything has been a little difficult.

Word of the Day – Crucible – ‘Slam Your Door’

Today's word of the day is crucible, or a sever test. I had a little trouble naming this one, I considered naming it 'Test of Time and Love' but it didn't feel quite right...

Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Today's word of the day was inalienable, meaning incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred. It took me so long to write this. I didn't want to get political or sad, so I tried to make something beautiful, unfortuantely I feel it's lacking... a lot. Maybe I'll rewrite it when I'm not so tired and… Continue reading Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

To be honest, I didn't know there was a word for this, and yet it's one of my favorite things to do. Today's word of the day is Parataxis, which is the placing of clauses or phrases one after another, without words to indicate coordination or subordination, as in "Tell me, how are you?" 'Going… Continue reading Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

Shadow of May – Day Twenty-One – ‘Gently Now’

Whoops! Looks like I spoke to soon last time I posted. Got hit working a tournament at work - work day changed to 7am until closing at around 12am. Only had to do it two days though, and yesterday I got off early - but then I fell asleep until just a few hours ago.… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-One – ‘Gently Now’

Shadow Of May – Day Eighteen – ‘You Can Live’

I keep doing these in batches of two - I don't plan to, it just happens. Work and all is keeping me weird. Day eighteen of Shadow of May asked: What has been conditioned in me about death? 'You Can Live' You can live but you've gotta lay down and die At some point, preferably around… Continue reading Shadow Of May – Day Eighteen – ‘You Can Live’
