Our old cat tree was getting a bit ragged (as is very possible with four kitties shredding it up every day), so we decided to buy a new one. Here it is!
Take me there, to the Land where dreams bleed into truth Castle in the sky
Ritual of night, Submerge me in your flames, make Me a sacrifice
This children's book focuses on a young girl and her weariness over a long, dreary winter. She longs to see the bright greens and yellows of spring, dotting fields of beautiful flowers. Follow Ivy as the season changes to spring, aided by the words of the author and famous poets.
The last letter she sent, It called you to the lonely place She once called home It spoke of tender love, sacred things, And promises shared
Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.
Always be true to yourself, who you are as a person. The people who really care about you will appreciate you for who you are, no matter what. So feel free to stay true to yourself and flaunt how amazing you are.
Desolate silence Echoes in empty confines Of an unknown space
For today, I have two slightly different versions of the same poem! The first version is a haiku, while the second is a tanka poem. As such, they are of differing length, and phrases/words have been added and rearranged in each poem. However, I wrote both based on the same theme and ideas.
I talked a bit about Zen's background in my introductory Feline Friday post, but I didn't really go in depth with all that she went through. So today, I want to share Zen's story, and all that she's overcome throughout the years.
Finally, the monster strikes with a strangled snarl From the inside out, I devour myself An abomination I become
Lost in a book, I stare at aged pages, Gazing at typed words, Peering into fantastical worlds
Lyrics that speak to my soul, They soothe my racing mind, And fill the void inside The beauty and magic of music, Making me whole
Strive for the impossible, because believing is the first step to achieving. Chase your dreams until you catch them; determination and persistence can do amazing things. Overall, don't give up on the aspects of life that are seemingly unachievable. You never know what you can accomplish until you try.
'Kingdom Hearts' is the type of series that manages to inspire hope, kindness, and positivity, even when you're an adult. There truly is a magic to these games, one that implants itself deep into your heart and never completely fades. As a child, I remember being so mystified by the wholesome innocence of these games, and their prevailing message of hope. For me, '358/2 Days' was no different.
Color fades into The vast nothingness of my Ruined soul, now stained
It's just a great feeling to see your children (furry or otherwise) grow up and develop, acquiring new skills along the way. And these days never last long, so we must treasure them while they do.
My veins, filled with your venom.
Sea of butterflies, Crimson wings flutter, a lure For wandering souls
For forever, I'd have proof This beautiful human being Was once mine to hold, Even if only for a short while
Don't let others dampen the shine of your soul. Let it glimmer strong and bright like the sun.
I've been so blessed to have some wonderful maternal figures in my life. They've taught me many lessons over the years, like how to be strong, and how to stick up for myself. Those same women have nurtured me with endless love and care, molding me into the person I am today.
Smile bright like sunlight Since birth, you've held me with love I adore you, Mom
Within my mind, A dense shroud of fog Obscures an unthinkable reality
So, I recently bought a new chair for my bedroom. I got it with the intention that it would be good for gaming, but somehow, I don't think I'll be doing much sitting in it at all. I've only had the chair for a few days now, and in typical cat fashion, it's already been taken over.
Azure scales shimmer, Glinting in vibrant sunlight Mermaid swims along
That glimmer within, Free it so the world can see The beauty you hold
Sheep prance, snowy fleece Gentle melody drifts through A land of sweet dreams
There are still so many parts of life to treasure and appreciate. So, please, don't give up. Hold onto the normal things you still have, and wait for better times to come. This will not be out forever.
Overall, 'Story of Seasons' makes for a fun, relaxing game to play whenever. With a cast of fascinating characters, accessible gameplay, a light soundtrack, and adorable animals, it isn't a video game to be missed.
Follow its path and seek hope Grip this dream of eternal peace
Today, I wanted to dedicate a Feline Friday post to my two female kitties, Zen and Bell. These girls are both so unique, with their own endearing personalities and characteristics. From the way they sleep to the way they eat, there are also many differences between them. And I love getting to see those little traits every single day. I'm so glad to have Zen and Bell in my life; they truly enrich it.
You keep showing me kindness after kindness, A bittersweet realization that more Will never be within my reach The kindness that glimmers In your bright eyes and serene smile, Is really just a hidden cruelty
It goes through the same routine, Watching, learning, Waiting, Until the time is right
Caterpillar crawls, Onward to a new journey Its inner beauty
Remember, you are important too. Please, take care of yourself. There's only one of you in the world, and the world needs you.
Staring in the mirror, Sunken eyes, hollow smile. Gazing ahead, Only a ghost looks back.
Through the crisp, clean pages, And the ink preserved words, I've experienced a thousand Different lives, all fantastical And full of brilliant magic
I'm incredibly grateful to have my cats. They're so adorable and constantly brighten my day with their precious personalities. Just seeing my kitties wander around the house warms my heart. I love falling asleep or waking up with them cuddled beside me. Regardless of the current situation, those parts of life remain. There are still countless things to treasure and look forward to.
Mosaic of dreams, Vivid stained glass hovering Over you and I
I spurn myself, doubt my heart, Submerge into crushing despair, All for others Deep down, I know most Will not remember it, My struggles forgotten with time, Merely a girl that was once there
At its core, 'Magic 7' is a fun, fast-paced story about three kids with special powers trying to go about their lives and help their friends.
Little moths gather, Silver wings fluttering by A pyre of embers
Learn a new language, acquire a new skill, make a fun craft, etc. But, it's okay if you don't feel up to doing any of that. It's fine to just want to rest and relax. You don't have to focus solely on being productive or creative. This is your time, and you should use it however you want to.
As some of you may know, I'm quite a fan of the 'Fatal Frame' video game series. Well, 'Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir' is a spin-off of the main series, made exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS system. It was designed to be compatible with the console's 3D cameras and sensors. The game even includes an AR (Augmented Reality) booklet, which the player uses to progress the story.
Phonograph of memories, Play the sacred music of my life
I've always found the bond between animals to be incredibly sweet and endearing. You hear stories about cats and dogs becoming the best of friends, dogs fostering little kittens and vice-versa, and the list goes on. All around us, there are precious animals banding together and helping one another despite overwhelming odds.
