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!
