Friday Fictioneers – I Love You

Standing here, I’m wrapped in your woodsy pulp scent. 

You captivate me with your unique shape.

You fit in my hands like a glove wraps around fingers. 

Leather or cardboard bound, your composition is perfection.

Every second I’m with you is like an unknown paradise. 

You fulfill my every need and want. 

With you, I am alive.

 I can be here or anywhere.

 If I’m around the world, you are with me. 

Your words wander through my mind.

You create memories on every page.

 I want to remember them forever.

For you, my love will never die.

I Love You

Crispina Creative Challenge – Beyond the Blue Horizon

Come to the edge, he said. You can see the sea.

I’m afraid, I said.

The menacing sky will soon pass, he said.

Will you hold my hand? I said

I am with you forever and evermore, he spoke with a radiant smile.

Together we leaped across to places beyond the horizon.

A Lover’s Dance

Photo by Marko Zirdum on Pexels.com

~~~~~~~~~

 A lover’s dance is patient and kind.

It feeds your heart, soul, and mind.

It brings you joy and happiness within,

knowing that they will be with you

through thick and thin.

A lover’s dance is captivating.

Only if the partner’s heart

has not been fractured.

A lover’s dance has no mistakes.

It plays no one, not even games.

A lover’s dance is slow and kind,

Easy to learn but hard to find.

Open your heart and let love in

to a lover’s dance.

A Toast for the New Year 2022

Life is too short to be anything but happy...

It’s the end of another year. 

Where did it go? 

It’s been an overwhelming ride of highs and lows. We’ve all had to rethink how to live with the frenzy of the pandemic – COVID 19.

My lack of blogging has been due to many obstacles. Today, I am presently on my 13th day of COVID. Because this virus is so new, there is no appropriate time frames for when you will get better. This is my second bout with this virus. My first was in January, 2020. Click here for that adventure. 

I’ve had every symptom listed by the CDC. Although, I’m recovering slowly I continue with body aches, difficulty breathing and lack of taste. For those wondering whether or not I am vaccinated – I am. I have been vigilant to stay safe with minimum contact with people and plenty of hadn sanitizing. I believe that if I had not been vaccinated I would have been in the hospital on a ventilator. I have breathing issues due to PE (pulmonary embolisms). I am beginning to see the possibility of a full recovery and am grateful everyday for that. 

However, you want to look at life, the main thing to remember is that you are not alone. 

There is always someone guiding you in whatever form you choose to believe. Take comfort in knowing that the challenges you’re given are because you can endure them; no one gets what they can’t conquer.

Life is rich and abundant. Nature provides us with beauty, joy and visual colors. If you look around, you can see that people add variety to life, too. Observe the many colors, shapes, sizes and personalities of these creations. The variety of what we see, when we really look is what makes life interesting and unpredictable. Life is never boring because you can make it whatever you want it to be. 

Thank you, my blogging friends and followers, for helping to make my last year spectacular.

In Light and Love.

Isadora 🙏🏻

May your COMING YEAR be

Forget to MAKE SOME ART

LIVE AS ONLY YOU CAN

and somewhere in the next year,

      I HOPE YOU

SURPRISE YOURSELF.

Sunday Song – The Interview with God

People may not remember what you said,

but they will remember how you made them feel ….!!!

What happens in heaven? 

Will I sit on a cloud? 

Is walking or talking 

Or jumping allowed? 

Will I be on my own? 

Or with some of my friends? 

Does it go on forever? 

Or eventually, end? 

What happens in heaven? 

Will I play a harp’s strings? 

I can’t play piano 

I can’t even sing. 

Who chooses the music? 

That angels inspire? 

Who does the auditions? 

For the heavenly choir? 

What happens in heaven? 

Are the streets paved with gold? 

Is it crowded with people? 

Who’s incredibly old? 

Will I know who I am? 

Will I know what I’m called? 

If I pinch myself hard 

Will I feel it at all? 

What happens in heaven? 

Do I go through a gate? 

What if I get myself lost 

Or turn up too late? 

Is my name on a list? 

Is the gatekeeper nice? 

Can you sneak in for nothing? 

Or is there a price?

Grateful

Sapphire Wings       2021©Isadora De La Vega

When the sun shines
and brings it’s warmth
When your petals glisten
after a gentle rain
When your blossoms
flourish before me
I will be grateful
for your colorful light.

Namaste

I honor the place in you

in which the entire universe dwells.

I honor the place in you

which is of Love, and of Truth,

of Light and of Peace.

When you are in that place in you

and I am in that place in me.

We are One.

Heartbreak and Pain

Like scattered petals fallen to the ground, 

My heart needs the pieces put back together. 

Your words erased my existence.

Now, I can be free.

For you are gone,

And, I will never speak your words.

When I was young, 

You held me captive.

You cannot hurt me now, 

Nor do I scare.

Love does not dominate

It cultivates and cares.

I will not ever have your love, 

But I have someone who cares.

Wilted Dreams

Wilted Flower 2021©Isadora DeLaVega

Your waking dreams
I hear your screams
of the hour
My wilted flower

All alone
can’t go home
You must cower
My wilted flower

So much pain
standing in the rain
You are not of power
My wilted flower

You run away
and, there you stay
In the cold rain shower
My wilted flower

Memories of all the hate
your horrible fate
They no longer tower
My wilted flower

In peace you die
I mustn’t cry
Your last hour
My wilted flower

Heaven’s Embrace 

I wish for a road

That is sunny and clear,

Filled with love’s blessings

And, friends who are dear.

I wish for blue skies.

And fields filled with flowers,

Fragrance and colors

To last seasonal hours.

It happens; I like

A mist on my face,

It’s a way to enjoy

Heaven’s embrace.

And soon, as time passes.

The season will change, 

To welcome a  crisp wintery stage

When life may not seem so sublime.

Most of all, I’m enthralled.

By a soft, fragrant flower,

That dances from Heaven

And sets hearts aglow.

I will never forget.

The joy and the glee,

I feel in my soul

As you give your love to me.
