Ronovan's weekly haiku challenge keeps me writing, compelling me to continue doing what I love even when I don't feel "inspired" or more so when I can't find the mental space. Haiku is an art, and not easy. But for an amateur like me, sometimes it is "easy enough" to create so I return time … Continue reading Seeking #Haiku 271
I marveled at the opulence and grandeur of the place, the awe inspiring visage it presented … for the glory of God, as it is proclaimed. Oh, I am speaking of St Peter’s Cathedral which I visited recently in Rome. The direction to the Treasury of the cathedral took me into a dimly lit room, … Continue reading A little protest
Silence is mystery. That which you can name or label, that which you can interpret or express, that which you can analyse or explain, they are not silent. Silence for me dwells in the indescribable, that which I have no desire and no ability to explain in words but only to experience. You will know … Continue reading It’s a mystery
I am pretty lucky. I live close to modern amenities but not close enough to encounter sensory overload. I have flexible work hours. I have the privilege of choosing where I work so long as I get the work done, and how I work so long the work is of sound quality. With relative freedom … Continue reading The luxury of quiet … and choice
We did not lose ourselves because in each moment we were creating ourselves. Decades of life… every moment, every decision a reflection of that moment. With hindsight, we seek to tell of a past with reference to the past previous to that. We held a vision of ourselves in a previous past, and so that … Continue reading We did not lose ourselves.
I’ve been breathing a lot lately. The deep inhale, tell-my-self-everything-is-alright kind of breath. It’s something I’ve learnt over time to be effective to lower the blood pressure, to calm the heart rate, to calm the mind or so it seemed. And it made me look like a fish out of water, gasping for air. Perhaps … Continue reading Gasping for air… exhaling
Inhale and exhale Let your breath come together Uniting us all. ~ FlorenceT This haiku is a contribution to Ronovan's Haiku Challenge #222. This week's prompt words are breathe and unite. If you are interested in participating, go to RonovanWrites and check out his weekly challenge published every Monday - it comes with "how-to" if you are … Continue reading Breathing #Haiku 222
Reason. I have relied on you for as long as I can remember. That which was not logical, that which could not be proven did not merit, had no value. Yet I must admit you are losing your grip. For a long while now I hear that calling, something within and without me; that something … Continue reading Reason not to
Another year, and I notice a difference. No lingering doubt, no attending sorrow of what the day represented. Reclaiming gratitude for this day, as it was meant to be. Liberating. Acceptance of the passing years as I stand on solid ground, looking to a beautiful future together. There is much to be happy for, and … Continue reading A birthday thought

Twelve days, and it’s probably one of the longest period of absence from my blog. And in this “quiet” period, I’ve been spending time doing the things I love and with the ones I love, all in service of a certain malaise that hit. Long moments of reflection and pondering, of re-establishing a solid ground … Continue reading Making peace
There are moments when one is at peace driving along a busy road where sound is not noise where society is a welcome sight a reminder that life is simple. Saw a man sitting on a bench on a train platform teeming with life He had headphones on and a book to read cocooned within … Continue reading There is peace here
So it is I lay to rest amidst the green and nature's arms, to reignite the love once had but now dimmed in concrete jungle of greed and despair, temporary haven from the cries of need and wants; I now lay weary to the call of peace and my heart's grace. ~ FlorenceT This … Continue reading I lay to rest #writephoto

Time drifts into a path of mayhem without a destination. Setting my course on the waters of peace and calm. I turn my fate toward that which holds my compass true. There is no turning back once truth has been found. Does your life fear reality in all it's frayed tapestry? Do your hours … Continue reading Drifting: in Love and Happiness.
