Love In 10 Sentences

Hello ūüôā I want to thank Terry from Through The Lens of My Life for tagging me to do the “Love in Ten Sentences” event, I love a challenge and I’m trying to sharpen my poetry skills so I’m going to give this a try. 

Writing 201: Fingers

Our Little Secret Sparks lingered where his fingers traced patterns on my back, lightly, a feather soft touch. It¬†left me in a daze, all the while trying to focus, small circle, a line, down the arch of my spine. This is driving me insane, and 

Writing 201: Animal

Royally Speaking

His mannerisms
are perfect and correct, feared and
respected, surrounded by a regal glow. Side by side
with his Empress, their love forever on show. The King of the
jungle they claimed, the conquering lion his other name. He grew
his natty as he deemed fit. Oh how they watched and resented it. How
they detested the growing of his mane. They wanted to know the meaning
behind the ‘lion thing’ “Are you a Rasta now?” Their disgust poorly hid but it
was simply just a conscious youth thing, that thing that makes the insides, of
any girl with a sense of purpose, squirm. That thing that made her proud to
be his Queen, that thing he may not have  recognized, was always within
him. He was always meant to be, royal, for as you grow you begin to
see what ‘He’ had really planned. A Rasta? No,
a Lion with everlasting royalty.

Today’s theme¬†is animal and of course I’d pick a lion but it was hard deciding what aspect to write about and¬†getting a concrete shape was the hardest part for me.

Prompt: Animal

The Riddim of my Heartbeat

The Riddim of my Heartbeat

If my life was a movie everyone would hear the riddims that resound in my head¬†when I’m¬†walking. Yes,¬†riddim was on purpose, I don’t mean rhythm. Riddims are¬†played on hand drums or African drums.¬†Those are the beats I walk in rhythm with. I feel like the 

Wanderlust…

This post was inspired by Manija from A New Life Wandering.
The top 5 places in the world I want to visit are:

1) Paris, France
It has been my dream to go to Paris, from I chose to learn French over Spanish in Grade 7, one day I want to see the Eiffel Tower in person.

2) Tokyo, Japan
Autumne, Davia & I are supposed to get lost in Japan one day. I want to learn Japanese before I get there though.

3) Venice, Italy
I think the river instead of roads is so cool lol, I really want to ride in a gondola. (Hellooo Food.)

4) Ivory Coast, Africa
I’m a drummer and I would love to see the original roots of the extra-curricular activity that has taken over my heart, drumming is my passion and what better place to learn more about it than the motherland. (And Addis Ababa, Ethiopia while I’m there.¬†P.S. it’s my post I can cheat & put 2-in-1 ūüėõ )

5) Moscow, Russia
I’ve taken an interest in Russian because of the book series, Vampire Academy, so Russia is a place I’d love to visit as well.

What are your top 5 places you want to visit?
