The dark flower, mysterious And demonic in its pristine beauty A curse of immortality, Passed down through the ages
One of my male cats, Karma, came in just as we were finishing the puzzle, and in typical cat fashion, took all the credit for it.
From her mind, grand adventures and scenic worlds bloomed beautifully.
Within a broken mind, The shrill cries of cicadas echo Against crumbling ivory bone The cicadas keep crooning, Even in the desolate spaces Where only silence exists Can you hear them?
Drizzling rain pours down, A sullen reminder of The broken promise
You've made it through another week, so you deserve to take a moment for yourself today. No matter how difficult it was, you powered through, and that is truly commendable.
At this point, I think most people have at least heard of the 'Animal Crossing' video game series. And a new title released just this month, 'Animal Crossing: New Horizons.' So, I thought it would be the perfect time to show my most recent game from the series. It's 'Animal Crossing: New Leaf,' for the Nintendo 3DS system.
Spells spoken by soft, sultry lips Always entrance me far too easily Golden sparks spread From smooth fingertips, trailing along Plush, quivering skin
If you've been feeling down lately, I have some advice for you. Spend time with your animal buddies. Give them plenty of pets, snuggles, and love. It'll make you feel better, and your fur babies will definitely appreciate the extra attention. I promise. And please, give your babies a few extra pats for me; they deserve it.
Squirrels dart around The towering oak tree, Scrounging for bits of food I watch them, a small smile Resting on my face As I bask in another beautiful day
The translucent sea Washes against the shore Erasing the past
Waltzing along to a hidden crescendo, I twirl through scarlet satin shadows They cloak my porcelain skin, Donning me in a mask of my own making
In a time where everything is uncertain, human kindness is absolutely crucial. Kindness to others, kindness to animals, kindness to ourselves.
Soon, I descend into a familiar world Soft sheep prance upon fields of forest green, Ivory fleece bouncing with each bound A jubilant breeze drifts through, Winding around every living being, It reaches out with spectral fingers
Ghosts, left over From long ago They are remembered In seemingly invisible slivers
I want to spotlight some of the ways you can help these amazing shelters and organizations. They help care for the precious, vulnerable animals of this world, the same animals that we love and treasure. That is truly commendable. Right now, these organizations need help to continue doing what they do.
The privilege to just exist, Even as a beautifully imperfect Human
One after another, Mugs of vibrant green beer disappear The lads and lassies in the pub Cheer for all to hear, Toasting to one another
The world is in a strange, somewhat frightening state right now. But, we should still try to make the most out of life. Take this time to focus on doing the things you love. Whatever you need to do to destress in this difficult time.
From what I can remember, this is the first visual novel style game I ever played, and it was definitely the first Mature rated DS title I played. It also happens to be one of my favorite games in general.
Strays we may be, but together, We can band together as a family, A pack to wander these desolate streets, To protect one another
Cats are truly fascinating creatures. They're much like humans, in that they each have their own unique characteristics and personalities. This is certainly the case with my four kitties, Zen, Bell, Kash, and Karma. They have different traits that set them apart and make them the cats they are.
You are not alone Never, always close to our Hearts, eternal love
Porcelain limbs bound by silk chains, Button eyes masked with velvet fabric Bathed in the deepest hue of scarlet Mouth sealed, stitch by stitch, Never will it speak again
Village of dense fog Tragedy repeats again Welcome endless night
I'm very happy to say, I was recently a guest on Fraser's Fun House, run by Melanie Fraser. I participated in her Meet The Blogger feature, a series where she interviews different bloggers.
A simple greeting can brighten someone's day. A quick hug can comfort another in their time of need. A single smile can keep a person going in tough times. Your choices always have an impact on others, so make ones that are kind.
Summer cicadas, They cry in the twilight of A lone humid night
Reaching farther with quivering fingers Will a hand branch out, Intertwining with mine?
Something exciting has been going on in my life lately, and I'm really excited to tell all of you about it! For the past several months, my brother has been buying supplies to make his own wax melts. In the just the last month or so, he actually started making them. And this week, my brother listed his first wax melts on eBay!
For this week's Feline Friday post, I thought I'd share a few pictures of my kitties cuddling together.
Love so toxic, Hunger so delicious Even if I'm allowed to feast For just one more night, I'll always have the memories, You entwined with me, Limbs joined together
Most of all, I want to hear That in the end, Pursuing love is worth it
In heavy rain, Water nymphs play.
I just want to let you know, things will get better. It could take days, months, maybe even years. Regardless, brighter horizons are awaiting you. And someday, they will be golden.
For my first CIB Sunday post, I have the Nintendo 3DS remake of 'Luigi's Mansion!'
Bearing bleeding wounds, I shamble on Wearing a facade of normalcy, Acting as if nothing bothers me For you, I do it all
I forgot to include a certain item in my Amazon cat products post from a couple weeks ago. It was this automatic cat fountain from Veken. We’ve had one for several months now, and our kitties use it every single day. They gather at the fountain daily, sometimes together, to lap up water.
Lies effortlessly blend with truth When they fall from your deceptive lips A soft voice murmurs in my ear, Sickly saccharine sweet
I have only one life to live I'm here to live it, regardless of your wishes I refuse to squander the brief time I’ve been so graciously gifted
In a silent town, The bell of misfortune rings Permanent twilight
There's no need to focus on pleasing others or fitting into set labels. Instead, we should concentrate on always being true to ourselves and our hearts. Forget “normal,” it's unrealistic and unnecessary.
I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Rising Star of the Ideal Inspiration blog. From what I know, it isn't an official award; it's meant more to honor and inspire bloggers in their writing journey. But honestly, I think awards like this have more meaning, and I'm incredibly grateful to Rising Star for nominating me.
Beneath it all, Something lurks, Ancient and powerful No one knows, They haven't seen what sleeps Under the vibrant coral reefs
Yesterday was Love Your Pet Day! As such, I thought it was only fitting I addressed it here on the blog.
As she swam, her tears streamed down, Collecting and spiraling Into translucent pearls of sorrow
Paper hearts laced with Facets of indigo sky, A brew formed from love
It creeps from the furthest corners, The ones swathed in raven black shadows It lurches forward, beady scarlet eyes leering It rears towards me, stained razor sharp fangs Disguised by a familiar face
