I Believe That...

Featuring
INDYRA ORIGINALS

― Quote by Robert Fulghum

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. 
That myth is more potent than history. 
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
 That hope always triumphs over experience. 
That laughter is the only cure for grief. 
And I believe that love is stronger than death.”

THE INSTRUMENTS: The Day I Met My Father

Featuring
TRACEI & TASHI

Wish #8: To meet my father this new year.
That was one of my 12 wishes every new year growing up.
With 2016 just around the corner, I decided that instead of writing a poem or a story today,
I'd rather share with you a little part of me... a part of my real life.

To the sound of every bell as the countdown started with 12 seconds before the new year arrived,
my family and I would do the 12 grape wishes. Every year one of my wishes would be the same,
and that was to finally meet my father. Funny thing though was that this wish really
never made it to the top three, I honestly don't know the reason.
And every year it moved in position, sometimes putting it at the very bottom.

I grew up without my father and for some reason, I had this need to see him at least once
in my lifetime and be able to shake his hand. It made me sad to think that one of us
could one day leave this world without getting a chance to stand in front of the other.
I wanted to be able to touch him and say a hello and ask him how he was doing
and I thought he might feel the same. So one year, years ago, my wish finally came true
and I got the chance to see him.

However, not all wishes we have in life can be called "dreams come true"
but more like wishes with painful results. On that day, I saw my father standing in an empty hall
and I walked up to him, I was nervous and scared but the joy of finally seeing him gave me the courage
to go up to him. I introduced myself and stretched out my hand to him. He stood there looking at me in silence,
ignoring my hand stretched out to him, and when he finally said something it was just to say
he didn't have time for me and walked away. I stood in that hall crying and repeating to myself what had just happened.
I couldn't understand.

Now my father is gone and it is sad that the only memory he left behind for me was that,
walking away from me for the second time in my life and not looking back.

Now, even though most of my New Year wishes are still the same, 
that particular one about my father has changed. Now I only wish that the day he walked away from me,
leaving me alone standing and crying in that empty hall, he left knowing that I forgave him and that he had 
missed out on something that could have been so beautiful, to have the love of his firstborn... his daughter.

The Midas Dream

Featuring
EXPLORING SECOND LIFE

~ Enya ~

There's a little town, above the clouds with clouds of its own,
Now, this town is so special since it is always dressed in gold,
Where raccoons come to play and where time can stand still,
when the clock's tic-toc moves so slow, 
making everything fall asleep.


Liquid gold are the oceans and gold cotton clouds in the sky.
They too move very slowly, with the tic-tocs of the clock.


Butterflies are dancing to the melody in the air,
from the old piano's self-played keys.
Where the grass grows soft and white
in a lullaby's gentle Midas dream.


"Tic-Toc" whispers the clock,
being careful not to disturb the peace
as it stretches its arms just a little in a yawn,
getting ready
to resume another dream.

My beautiful people, sometimes I like to pretend I am a poet and a writer. 
I enjoy writing so much all these silly stories that I get in my head all the time. 
But by no means do I consider myself a real poet or writer. 
I am simply a dreamer wanting so much to share the things I get in my head and in my heart. 
So I ask that you bear with me and allow me to continue dreaming.

Thanks for reading

My writing today was inspired by the golden shade and soft colors in these pictures.

Little Sparrow

Featuring
SNOWPAWS

~ Liliana Rose ~

Chirp, Chirp, Chirping!

Tell me little sparrow, have you lost your way,
What are you looking for in this deep woods
when all your friends are away?
What is it that keeps you hanging in this lonely grounds,
where only your happy chirp, chirp, chirping
is the only sound around.
-Lori Novo


Her friends had warned her that it was a crazy idea,
still, she ignored each and every one of their pleads not to go on with her plans.
She had always had an adventurous soul, always eager and curious to explore beyond
the norm and so she went to sleep that night feeling an enormous
thrill of anticipation for what awaited her the next day.

The next morning, at the wake of dawn
and as she had planned the day before,
she ventured into the pine forest where she had been many times before.
She began to explore those familiar woods, her heart beating uncontrollably.
However, on this occasion, it was a totally different experience.
She could hear the soft crackling of snow under her bare feet as
she first set foot on the snow covered ground
sending a cold chill all through her body.

Zig-zagging swiftly deeper and deeper into the icy pine forest,
as if dancing with nature on that winter day,
she tried unsuccessfully looking at the top of the gigantic pine trees from where she stood, 
realizing her sight couldn't reach that high.


The hours passed and by noon, feeling tired and hungry,
she picked a few berries to eat from the holly berry bushes nearby
and sat by the frozen brook to rest for a few minutes,
joined by her sparrow buddy that had been following her around through the woods.
With her buddy on her shoulder, both sat by the brook in silence,
enjoying the tranquility and beauty of the wintry day.

Minutes later she got up and went on with her day,
discovering with every step new and different ways of viewing and appreciating nature's gifts.
She felt saddened to see that her adventure was soon to end as sunset
started to settle in the distance but at the same time she was eager to return to her friends
and share with them this wonderful experience.

"No matter what kind of God's children we are, the world is  a beautiful place to all!"
she said as she looked up to her buddy on the tree that had been watching over her all through her journey.
And as she opened her arms wide, they turned back into splendid sparrow wings.
"We can go home now." 
she chirped feeling satisfied, and both sparrows flew away.

My story today was inspired by the beautiful song "Wake Up Little Sparrow".
