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

Life Awaiting

Life Awaiting

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Let it all fall away —
Voyage from what once was
   to what could happen

* * *
Unburden yourself from things that are the past; these are unchangeable — the future however, is still unwritten.

Love, KJ

Night Butterflies

Night Butterflies

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Watching
one another,
our emotions
   flutter
in euphoric dances,
Our soft voices
touching and awakening
   night butterflies;
A budding romance
exploring
the airwaves
   all around us

* * *
That first glance, that first inkling of something special; it’s undoubtedly unlike anything else in this world.

Love, KJ

Flight of Release

Flight of Release

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Black silhouettes wait
in the skeleton hands
grasping for the sky —
   Shaking free our shackled wings,
   together we embrace the light

* * *
Dark thoughts, regrets, sadness, they can wander our mind like haunting ghosts; don’t be afraid to let them go in search of a better tomorrow.

Love, KJ

Bus Ride to Heaven

Bus Ride to Heaven

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Colours fade away
as a bus slowly travels
into the sunset —
   Growing weightless, it ascends;
   Ghost passengers of the sky

* * *
Despite all that we learn in our time on this planet, there’s still so much shrouded in mystery; who will ever truly know where we go when we die?

Love, KJ

Whispers of Change

Whispers of Change

Poem from the Handwritten series.

How it calls to me,
that whisper of sunkissed wind
   rippling with changes

* * *
Change can be a daunting thing from time to time, yet change can affect your life with so much positive vibrations; embrace it, and dare to grow.

Love, KJ
