Automatic Writing #11

I will lose the will to speak before I lose the ability, spoken words will become meaningless and feel heavy, dated, dirty to me. I will have no desire to speak to another soul, no desire to have an exchange of thoughts and words, for the everyday is not for me, it never has been.
I live in a place they tell me doesn't exist, one that’s painted with moonlight and sewn with stars but the everyday is more important they say, they lull me to dreams speaking about stories that contain nothing but flat words - cutting my world into pieces with words that interrupt my thoughts like bronzed knives through thin cotton. I live somewhere else and I can't relate to your stories - can you relate to mine? Is all you see just a greyness till death? 

My lips are starting to stick together now these could be my last words and I feel I have nothing to say, nothing to bequeath as my last thoughts. All time has flown and nothing needs saying any more. Discover the beauty in the bigger picture of life, forget the small, the everyday, wonder more about someone, open books are sometimes never read. Mystery is sweet.

Hi everyone, I haven't shared any of my automatic writing since November so I thought it was over due. I think I was having an anti-social moment when I wrote this, but I still think it's beautiful and has some wonderful imagery. I am a very private person and not what you would call an extrovert, I enjoy my solitude. I hope you enjoy it.

This will only be a quick post as I am in the middle of a weekend of decorating but I wanted to share some things with you all. First is that my prose piece 'Deep Sleep and Origami' was featured in the Heritage Issue of Crescent Magazine, page 15 :D Also I finally decided what to buy with my first earnings of £2.79 lol I needed a keyring for my new house keys and loved this one on eBay, plus its New Jade and 'brings good fortune' (sorry it's not a tin of beans lol) - it ticked all the boxes and here is the promised photo.

Have a wonderful weekend, I'm gonna get back to painting :)

(Belated) New Poem of the Month for February - 'Movement'

The spring will finally finds us
laughing and hiding behind that silver birch,
with too many colours for the sky to behold.

She brings on silvered
                               shimmered air,
                                             rubies and ivy within a scent of rain.

My fingers to your lips,
do not say what we both know.

Let's sit awhile and watch the sky
fade away behind the racing amber clouds
                                                   taking today’s whispers with them.

Hi everyone! Please excuse how late this 'New Poem of the Month' is, it should have been posted on the first but the internet has only just been connected in our new home and as anyone who has moved knows - it was totally manic! But one invaluable thing I have learned this past week is how good a cheese knife is at opening boxes! lol Finally after seven years of personal hardship I think I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

I am (slightly) cheating since 'Movement' isn't a new poem, but with all the upheaval I haven't written anything in a few weeks - that is all going to change! I set myself a goal this year that I would have a serious think about where I am going and what I want to do with my writing, even investing some money into it :)

I chose 'Movement' because it's a lively, fresh poem that hints at new beginnings, it's the breath before all the hard work starts, it seemed fitting - I hope you enjoy it. In my last post I promised that I would buy something with my first earnings and take a picture. Well I haven't done that yet because of the move but expect a photo in the next post.  

Also Crescent Magazine, who accepted my prose pieces 'India' and 'Deep Sleep and Origami' for their Heritage Issue back in November tell me they will be published on11th February (which is also my birthday :D) I will post links in the next blog post. 

I will get back to the unpacking and cleaning - Happy Thursday!
