Summer Love

Summer Love

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Quietly,
watch me
   fall
   in love
with the sound
of your laugh
rippling
like a summer
   breeze.

* * *
Despite all that’s dark and sad in the world, nature keeps turning round and round, and summer is back once more. I hope it will send you some love this season.

Love, KJ

Thoughts Like Water

Thoughts Like Water

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Dipping my bare toes
below waters edge, ripples
curl away from me —
   I wonder, will my thoughts follow,
   or like waves return once more

* * *
Minds, they are complex, mercurial things; one moment they are full and wild, next calm and serene. Like water, they go where they please, taking us along with them.

Love, KJ

Mirage

Mirage

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Captivated
by the sight of you,
I sit and gaze
from a distance,
   Wondering
about the stories
that shaped you
   and the secret
   to your smile,
Hoping
that when I pluck up
   the courage
   to say hello,
you’re not just
   a mirage
painted in my mind.

* * *
I always wonder how much I can find of someone’s inner beauty, reflected on their outside appearance; ever drawn in by kind eyes, and a sincere smile (:

Love, KJ

Answers Falling

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Scattered petals,
I am airborne, free-falling —
   Searching for meaning

Despite how strange life is for many of us, I constantly aim to find the silver linings; the beauty, the happiness. I hope you can still see them, too.

Love, KJ

Connected in Blue

Connected in Blue

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Beneath that eversky
no one is alone; our voices
entangled between —
Sail those deep blues stretching far,
your heart will find home, calling

* * *
Life, right now, is stranger than many of us have ever known; but we are in it together. You are not alone; together, we will weather this storm.

Love, KJ

Star Memories

Star Memories

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Thoughts of you and me
spread throughout the galaxy —
   Us, star memories

* * *
To leave behind the memories that matter to you, touch the ones you care for with love; there’s no truer gift in your heart.

Love, KJ

Dreamcatcher

Dreamcatcher

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Catch a falling star
as celestial night blossoms
upon world’s dark brow —
   Their light bright with tales to tell
   and adventure ever after

* * *
Wherever you are in life, take a moment to believe in magic; miracles can be found in the smallest of things and the littlest of gestures.

Love, KJ

Evanesce

Evanesce

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Elusive,
as ink dripping
into water,
you are someone
   I ever
   fail to grasp,

Reaching out
to touch you,
your echo
simply evaporates
   and I’m left
   chasing nothing

* * *
Some people, no matter how special, are not meant to stay; they are only passing by, remaining a memory by your side.

Love, KJ

Ancient Beliefs

Ancient Beliefs

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Seeking their wisdom,
they turned gazes heavenward
where gods resided —
   Mortal souls lost in desert gold,
   crossing bridges worlds beyond

* * *
Ever since I was a child I’ve had a fascination with ancient cultures, especially Egyptian, and their beliefs of gods and reincarnation; somehow it never fails to inspire me.

Love, KJ

Unravelling

Unravelling

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Answers may await
between sunshine, moonlight
   and worlds lost between

* * *
Ever since I was young, I’ve believed there’s more than what we can see, hear or touch; I’ve never been able to say different, and will most likely not change my beliefs until I’m proven otherwise.

Love, KJ
