I built my castle on a land not too far away but hidden from the world
I’m no princess or queen, I’m no royalty
Just a bibliophile on an epic journey.
And if you must seek me
The clue is in the library
Between the pages of the books is where I will be
I love reading books. I have a number that I haven’t read yet. I’ve taken the opportunity of this lockdown to start reading some. The goal I set for myself is to read at least one book every week. So far, so good. How about you guys?
They know me as the quiet one
And automatically they label me as serious
They don’t even become curious
To try and know me.
They say I’m the quiet one
And automatically they say I’m boring
They don’t care about knowing
What I might have to say.
Quiet ones don’t do much, they say
Quiet ones don’t have fun in any way
But we quite ones know better
I have this favourite bookmark I’ve had for fifteen years now
Given to me by a really good friend
A plastic cover to try and preserve it somehow
So it won’t be ruined, wouldn’t easily bend
Always found between the pages of the book I’m currently reading
The bookmark is the book’s company
I sip my coffee, from time to time stopping
Knowing I could find my way back without agony
It’s a mark that doesn’t really leave a mark
The simple yet useful, bookmark
everyone is a moon and has a dark side they never show Pale lunar prescience Eavesdropping upon the night Impartial witness Many tales do not tell They gloss over struggle and embellish triumph, They speak only of that quest Into an ancient castle To find a long lost treasure To rescue a love meant to […]

I really love this post. Please don’t forget to visit the original post. I’m planning to feature this in my other blog which is about scary stories.
She wasn’t meant to fall in love
As she was known to be evil
She was meant to fly the skies above
And be chased with pitchforks, which was so medieval
She wasn’t destined to live happily ever after
She was destined to be defeated She doesn’t deserve any laughter And was always thought of as conceited She wasn’t meant to look pretty And people feared her No one ever took pity She was living in a blur They all believed what they believed And thought they were right Not one thought they’ve been deceived Because she was the witch, to be slain by a knight ©Maria Michaela
Gently falling on the window pane
It came, the morning rain.
As fast as it came
It went away the same
Simply stopping by
And just as easily, said goodbye.
Too often do we seek sadness
We seek it in poetry
And yet, we crave for happiness
Where have they gone?
What have we done?
It’s been years since I’ve seen one
Dragons that roamed so freely before
The meadows and fields they used to explore
They’re now nearly gone, extinct, no more
Fireflies that lit up the night
So many they were, they shined bright
Nowadays, not one is insight
Fireflies and dragonflies seem like myths now
But I do hope they re-emerge, somehow
To see again the dragon’s wings and the fireflies’ light
That would be such a delight
This is related to the yesterday’s post. I got inspired by the chirping birds that greet me every morning and was planning to write something about their song. I was also thinking how cool it would be, to be able to fly away with them and not be afraid of this pandemic. So I came up with this rhyme.
Take me with you, let me fly
Let my playground be the sky
Let me soar over hills and seas
Play with the butterflies and the bees
Let me have wings like that of yours
To reach the safety of the shores
And on the fields and gardens green
Is where we will rest for the air is clean
I hear the chirping of the birds as I wake up
They’re the sounds of the morning.
Pleasing to the ears and a good way to start the day.
I love hearing them sing.
