My Dearest Muse

how do we promise
over a love so honest
and so pure
a love that was ours
even before
when the world was yours and mine
and when our words
were the silent
witnesses to a love unspoken
those little pieces of verses
and lines that only makes sense
to you and i
you scribble as i giggle
and you give a laugh so loud
when i sneak in to write
verses i cannot rhyme
will this love be ours
for now and then
will we have more reasons
to laugh and giggle upon
will we finally rhyme
the lines and verses
we argue writing about
will the words finally
have sound and utter
our first i loved you then
and i love you more now?

The usually crowded street is now a peaceful sight from a distance

Linking to kate’s friday fun

Just some random thoughts to brigthen up our day amidst all the worries sorrounding the  current  covid 19 virus, with enormous travel bans, i am sure a lot of us been wondering from a distance (Linking to kate’s friday fun ) about our love ones either left at home or in a far away place who can’t travel back home.

So much and so many reasons to be happy and thankful about…

Happy Sunday everyone😊😊😊

With a Smile


I never felt
how broken
i was


I saw
your foot prints
leaving me
in agony
in hurt
in pain

And in longing

Until then

You remain
my beautiful


And if
you find
your way

I will be right
where you left me

In the shadow of
my life
with every
word i write


Up and until then

I will love you
in the silence
of my heart

In every breath
I take
every word
i write

Until then I will wait, with love, with admiration and with a smile.


In response to the challenge “What do you see” by Sadjie
What do you see # 20- March 9, 2020
I read somewhere that if you leave someone at least tell them why, because what’s more painful than being abandoned; is knowing your not worth an explaination.

Whatever the situation of leaving maybe a little word of why,  will do great things to somebody behind. Ever wonder why “last will and testament” became very popular? Well, maybe its another way of preparing for and in time of them leaving unannounced. “Living will” is also becoming popular too especialy for those with existing chronic disease. These are list of things they want, should they become so ill that they are not capable of deciding for themselves.

Most often than not separation causes anxiety, heartaches and pain; but if there is only one consolation the involved parties would have, it is the fact that they know why. So it is important to explain and make them understand.

Young people get themselves in a relationship and just leave without saying a word in the event they feel the need to get away. Is this good? Maybe yes, maybe not. But this may not be a good sign of growing up and of becoming adult. It will become a habit. A habit these young kids will bring as they become adults: leaving anunnounced, unnoticed.

As far as we all are concern, every person we meet, every circumstances we experience will leave a lasting impression in our hearts and minds, a memory we will always cherish and remember. So at least leave the best memory behind and ceate a wonderful legacy, so that when you are gone, you will be remembered as one the best things.
You will be remembered with a SMILE😊😊😊 and with love ❤❤❤ and admiration.

One word becomes one great statement and one great stament becomes someone else’s beautiful memory of you.

Believe in the power of words.

New year signals
New beginnings
New oppurtunitites
And new challenges

So, one often wonder
Will this year be kinder?
Will there be better opportunities?
Will there be lesser challenges?

So, one often promise
To move forward
Leave the past behind
And work on for a better future.

But moving forward
And leaving the past behind
Don’t always guarantee
a better or kinder new year

Sadly because
One only moves forward
One only leaves the past behind
But never change

Changing the way we think
And the way we act
Is the best way to expect
A better, kinder, new year


So cheers to a new year, a new life, and a new beginning.

We went to Abian Subak Agrotourism where we had Luwak coffee tasting and witnessed their traditional way of hand pounding the coffee beans. It was the best way to experience Luwak coffee for the first time.

This poem was a collaboration with Rose of Poet Rummager published in May 4, 2017.
I am posting it again because this is one of many haikus i have written and a personal favorite; while at the same time one of the collaborations which really boasted my site.

Within this brick wall,
lies my heart where no light shines.
Rejected, it sleeps.

Hidden in the dark –
dreaming so damn hard and tight.
You’re not mine, it weeps.

In this tiny room,
my heart beats against the stone –
bruised yet still hopeful.

Bleeding and in pain,
it yearns to be free again.
Walls start to crumble.

Deep scars you might keep.
Love may fade, but you decide –
Are you strong or weak?

35 Degrees

I haven’t written anything for a long time. I am writing back today in honor of my father whose death anniversary we are commemorating.

My father gave me my first book, my first writing material and my first edited letter. Yes, you read it right  “edited letter”.  Whenever i was away from home back then i will write him a letter and he will send it back to me with corresponding corrections.

He gave me the best gift – the gift of words. We would play scrabble together. I never won; not that he was very competetive but simply because he wanted me to learn play up with words and hopefully win (it never happened; he was a walking dictionary). We would buy newspapers everyday only to keep up with the daily crossword puzzle challenge.

He once told me i have the gift of imagination. And he said ” write where your imagination leads you.” Later in life when i began writing in school he told me “now is the time for you to write where your heart leads you; the power of our imagination is so strong but the power of our hearts where love resides is stronger.”


35 Degrees

Its 35 degrees on a hot summer day
No one anticipated it
Nobody expected  it would come
But it happened
It rained
On a 35 degrees hot summer day
Nobody anticipated
No one expected
Yet it happened
Just as you went away
On a 35 degrees hot summer day



Thank you papa for the wonderful gift you left behind. You will forever live in my words and you will forever come alive in my imagination but i assure you, you will always and forever be in my heart where love resides eternally.
I would like to thank my dear followers for standing by while i was away. Special thanks to Kate of , Gina of, Irma of Iidorun,, Jules of
for the daily dose of writing inspiration.

Somewhere in Time -poem

Somewhere in Time -poem
Somewhere in between
I cried in pain
I agonized in disdain
I lamented in vain.

Somewhere hereafter
I walk away over
I smile in sober
I yearn to unfetter.

Somewhere thereafter
I will be discharged
I will be freed
I will be liberated.

Until then…
For a moment and now..

Let me soar higher.
