A Bleh Weekend and Two Poems

This weekend hasn’t been a very fun weekend. Things were noisy and messy (in the literal sense) in the house. Sleep refused to come for quite some time, mostly as a result from the aforementioned noise. And on top of all that, and probably also because of all that I have been feeling a bit under the weather. I’m not horribly ill – it’s more something I tend to describe as “feeling bleh”, really not fun, but not all that harmful – but through most of the day I managed to find neither the focus nor the will to actually write something today. Thankfully not everything was bad. A walk outside and a good conversation with my most loyal fan and follower to clear my head and get things off my chest. A bit of reading here, some fun videos there. And finally having some tea and watching a gorgeous and fascinating documentary with a very dear friend, who I had hardly seen last week, to close things off. All this really gave a more positive spin on what has definitely been one of the, less stellar weekends I can remember.

In the end, though, I still did not managed to really write anything (this here aside), so to bring something to the table anyway, I’m going to share some of my earlier work again. This time, something I haven’t paid any attention on since I started this blog: poetry. I really enjoy both writing and reading poetry and do both way less often than I actually should. It’s something I can probably talk about a lot more if I put my mind to it, but that may be something for later and I’ll try to keep things short now.

The following two are from about eight months ago. I was experimenting a bit with the haiku format and so far these (aside from a more personal and private poem I’m probably not going to be putting online anytime soon) are unfortunately the only ones to have come out of it. The first was inspired by a movie I had just seen at the time, a movie which I already loved as a child and brought a lot of nostalgia welling up again. The second was based on another poem I had written in middle school, which, as the title implies, was in turn based on a dream I had. It was a very strange and vague dream, but somehow I have always managed to recall it vividly. They’re rather short, but I do hope you’ll enjoy them nonetheless. Goodnight, everyone!

From amber ancient
The great beasts of old rise, and
A child smiles once more

From the purplish rocks
I jump into the water
Calling out: again!


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
