Today marks my first Artist Admiration feature, and I'm very excited to introduce our guest for it! An incredibly sweet, kind, and talented artist, Miss Amber (or Pondering Whimsy), is our first ever guest here on the blog!
Pulsing hearts beat, Dancing in rhythm.
I just want to inform you of a new feature I'll be starting on my blog soon! This feature is called Artist Admiration, and in it, I will interview various artists to find out more about their background and art.
Connected by the crimson thread Of an unknown fate, Two souls tethered as one, But separated by the world
Rather than fixate on jealousy, let's rejoice in the accomplishments of others, and raise each other up.
The flame extinguishes, Leaving me empty.
Within the depths of darkness, I slowly descend, Sinking as my eyes flutter Into a restless slumber
Ah, these two boys are still so cute. But as kittens, Kash and Karma were beyond adorable.
The harsh wind blows through Striking the lost wanderers With frigid fingers
Oh, how the moon longed for it To be with her sun But deep down, in a sliver of herself The moon never wanted to acknowledge, There was crushing doubt Flooding insecurity Thoughts of how she'd never be bright enough To match the sun she so loved
Chrysanthemums line barren halls, As empty as the promise made That now forgotten day
If you hold hopes and dreams in your heart, then put in the effort to make them a reality.
It means so much to have your support and encouragement. Really, that's a huge motivator for me, and I'm excited to create even more content for you. I hope you're enjoying this journey so far, and that you continue along with me. Thank you so much!
They exist for all to see, Keeping the truth in their hearts Under lock and key, Never to be opened
Woven into silver starlight, Are the hopes and dreams Of all those who dare to believe
For today's Feline Friday post, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different. I usually share stories about my four kitties and their respective backgrounds. But today, I’d like to share a list of potential pet names.
Butterflies flutter around the garden, Drawing me into their silver light
Golden petals sway Throughout the field, breeze flowing Soaking in the sun
An island, crafted from Broken memories and Bittersweet dreams, Lone sanctuary for those Stumbling in the dim darkness
Rather than agonize over the progress of other people, let's focus on our own, and work on improving ourselves the best we can.
Just earlier this week, a year ended, and a new decade began. With this significant change, I’ve been thinking about what I want to do in 2020; the goals I want to accomplish, the activities I want to make more time for.
This poem was inspired by one of my favorite games from 2019, "Devil May Cry V." I loved just about every aspect of this game; the characters, story, gameplay, controls, etc.
In resplendent sunlight, the cat basked This same way, many days passed
Weeping within, she wears a mask.
Since today marks the beginning of a new year, I thought this would be a good poem to mark the occasion. Happy New Year, everyone!
In the silent sanctity of night, I shed secrets like a serpent Discards its used flesh
Maybe the past year was full of hardship and pain. Perhaps it was one of the best years you’ve ever experienced. Whatever the case, this is a great chance to put the past behind you and start anew.
Dog and human, An eternal partnership
But perhaps, we can achieve eternity Through the memories and hearts Of our loved ones
Without a doubt, it was a great day for the humans of my family. However, Christmas was also a joyful celebration for my kitties. They had a tiring, but fun-filled day of toys and treats.
My absolute favorite holiday movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. To me, Christmas isn't complete without watching this at least once.
Regardless of what/when you celebrate, I hope you have a safe day full of joy and cheer! Happy holidays, everyone!!!
Happy holidays To one and all, a season Of joy, mirth, and cheer
On Christmas morning Sounds the pitter-patter of Small feet dashing through
Help to spread cheer and joy everyday, not just throughout the holidays.
Reindeer prance along While Santa and his elves work Giving joy to all
A forest of verdant green In the embrace of its organic canopy, I feel at ease
As I walked into my living room a few days ago, I found Bell sprawled on the couch like this.
Ribbons and glitter Adorning the gifts under The dressed Christmas tree
Always be kind
Gorgeous winter day
Live the best life you possibly can and forget the resentment holding you back.
This poem was inspired by an incredible piece of art from talented concept artist, @tutankart on Twitter. In particular, this image inspired my imagination to run wild and create this horror/Christmas themed poem.
When you break down and cry, I'll wipe those persistent tears away
A part of me misses the days when my kitties were little fluff balls stumbling around the house. Deep down, I’ll always treasure those memories.
You spurned the flame, Turning love away
Under the warm glow Of red and green Christmas lights, I lean into you
The pen cruises along, sealing sentiments In a brew of brilliant indigo ink, A beautiful expression is entombed
