Two Types

Those who look up

With their heads in the clouds

rely merely on luck.

Those who look down

Are those who find

the coins on the ground.


~Scarlette F.R.


The treacherous hill…

whether to climb?

Will there be breeze,

a view sublime?

Or will we grow tired

in no time at all?

Not reach the top?

Not risk the fall?

Right now I’m dreaming

planning ahead,

packing, and thinking

of what you just said.

My wanderlust has woken,

has pushed me aside.

My mind has spoken,

my heart must decide.

~by Velvet M.C.

Note:  I am currently in love for the first time, and I needed to express my feelings in verse!  So I apologize if this poem is clichéd and cheesy, but that is my mood right now 😀

Sleepy fluffy sheep
Wandering in fields of blue
Those are just clouds.

“True victory lies in your role in the conflict, not in coming through safely: it consists in the honour of battling bravely not battling through.”

Black and White

So many images

of happiness that my parents lived

show more color in my trembling hands

Than a Renaissance painting

or a bright bird or flower.

The color of memories––

Forever Young.

~by Scarlette F.R.

“Young men think old men are fools, but old men know young men are fools.”

Champaign Wishes

by Starell

Wake me up
I seem to have grown old
With sleep
And long to be young
In dreams

Wake me up
I’m fast asleep
Trapped in a nightmare
Of reality
Longing to return
To dreams of sugarplums

Quote #15

Be ye not like a feather at each wind,

And think not every water washes you.

~Dante’s Divine Comedy, Paradiso, Canto V

(translation by Henry  W. Longfellow)

Begins with a lie

Begging for eternal fire

To end this loud cry

i thank You God for most this amazing day
