Old Buildings Have Soul… And So Do Old Men

When I look at old buildings I see classic designs Constructed to withstand The ravages of time I'm like an old building I have endured the passing of time Old buildings have soul And so do old men The stories we keep Tucked away in ourselves Are like unwritten books Gathering dust on a shelf...

Open the Book ~ #poetry

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

Spilling from pages, in mysterious ways

Spirits unfold, in a mystical haze

Open the book, and magic appears

Bound, indeed, to the celestial sphere

Floating on air, they dance as you read

Wafting with words, is all that they need

To bring you life, from the far beyond

Watching you closely, as you respond

To the joys they breathe, and you take it all in

Turning the pages, again and again

Only I

I’m happy to share this post from my fellow blogger Silia. Please visit her blog As Told By Silia.

As Told By Silia

This life
It takes your breathe away
And It doesn’t give it back.
The world we live in
Is stormy and cold as ice.
We’re all a heartbeat from heaven
We’re all a blink away from the darkness
So love me now
Let me love you like only I could

A wonderful poem by my good friend Charmed Chaos 🙂 Be sure tto visit her blog!

Charmed Chaos


-Linda Lee Lyberg

Once all shiny and new
His paint is now worn and weathered
Floating in the air, he flew
Round and round, though tethered.

The Colors of Night ~ #poetry

A beautiful poem from my friend Dorinda at Night Owl Poetry. Please read and enjoy her writings!

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

The stardust fell, in a quiet array

Nightfall enveloped the colors of day

Moon dust soon followed, the glow of the light

Made ethereal shadows, ever so bright

She appeared with eyes closed, unable to see

The beauty she showered, her diversity

And though she was different, she never asked why

She blended so beautifully, with the moon and sky

For she was the star, she was Heaven’s delight

Whose beauty would shine, through the colors of night

Blood Into Ink Writing Prompt Challenge: Walt Page

Brave and Reckless

Don’t stop writing, keep on going

Live your life and keep the words flowing

You’ve done it before, you can do it again

Don’t let life pass you by too quickly my friend

Yesterday’s gone, today’s almost done

Don’t stop writing, tomorrow will come

Believe in yourself, your followers do

They love what you write, they believe in you

Tell us your thoughts, we’re waiting for you

Capture our minds with words that are new

I write this for me, I needed to hear it

Because I’m a writer, and I’ll never quit

Whenever I find that I’m getting stuck

I just keep on writing, no matter what

So when you find yourself on the brink

Pick up your pen and turn blood into ink
