Mountains of Hope

The matrix of love

Enchanted by life,
in awe of its beauty,
mountains of hope,
daring and duty.

Challenger clouds,
soulful and misty,
breathe deep truth,
collectively risky.

The matrix of love,
operates with time,
subconsciously giving,
rythym and rhyme.

As memories fade,
beyond the black hole,
nothing is everything,
let the dice roll.

Transformational Energy

Everything is energy

Transformational energy, starts with you.

It’s your focus, commitment and positive energy that will help you make any personal transformation that you want.

Everything is energy and you must channel it in the right direction for you.

A thought is energy and it’s your inner power that can magnify this into reality.

So the question is . . . . What do you want to transform in your life?

See yourself there.

New Year Hearts

A celebration of life

Happy New Year wonderful you. Here is my first poetic verse of 2023 to you.

New year hearts,
sharing the best,
travelling together,
north, south, east, west.

A world of kindness,
where all do care,
a celebration of life,
I'll meet you there.

Where love is forever,
and happiness lives,
encouraging greatness,
and everyone gives.

May this New Year,
show you the light,
of how special you are,
wonderful and bright.

Clarabelle

Rise Higher

Opportunities are everywhere

May your thinking rise higher than the morning sun.

Today, think big things! Think so big you even astound yourself.

When you raise your thinking to another level, something extraordinary happens and you become connected to a new field of opportunities.

The higher your thinking, the more tremendous the opportunities.

Rise high wonderful you and make 2023 your best year yet!

The Purest Light

Let you shine

The purest light exudes from you.

As soon as you realise even the sun cannot compete with your own beautiful light, the greatest things begin to happen for you.

Your pure light can permeate any problem, challenge or worry and all you have to do, is let you shine.

Yes indeed – LET YOU SHINE – today and everyday.

The Magic of Life Itself

Truly ‘live’ your life

In life we see death, In death we see life.

The quote above may seem a little bit morbid at this time of year and I definitely don’t want to bring any darkness into your life today.

I want you to think about how this quote speaks to you. In my own mind, it creates a sense of appreciation and gratitude for the now and the magic of life itself. It pushes me to see ‘LIFE IN LIFE’ and to cherish that each and everyday.

Truly ‘live’ your life and know what that means for you.

As 2023 approaches believe in life, believe in your magnetic energy and believe in your self-power.

Thee Perfect Christmas

Share the best of you always

For me, Christmas is all about family and enjoying special quality time with them.

It’s the simple things over the Christmas period that can bring the greatest joy.

Things like going for a walk in the countryside, playing good old fashioned board games and enjoying a warm cup of hot chocolate whilst laughing and talking with the family.

A magical Christmas is in these miracle moments and, in my eyes, there is no fancy gift that could really replace that specialness.

Be mindful this Christmas to stay present in each precious moment rather than focussed on the presents at the bottom of the Christmas tree.

The New Year is nearly upon us, so why not use the Christmas holidays to think about creating your perfect year ahead then move into the “doing” zone on 1 January 2023.

Share the best of you, always!

Clarabelle

Take Yourself Home

It’s time to come home to you

It is in the depths of darkness we find our magical light.

Take yourself home – not to a place or to familiar people – I mean, take yourself home to you.

Remember what makes you tick and what makes you feel alive. It’s easy to get lost in the crowd and do what everyone else is doing but what if that’s not really you?

Maybe it’s time to take your foot off the gas and stop to think about you, what you’re doing and where you’re going?

Being true to yourself is much more difficult to achieve on the hamster wheel of life – that’s why you must break out of that cycle and take a breath for you.

It’s time to come home to you and it’s time to make the time for it.

You’ve got this!

Clarabelle

This Christmas

I wish YOU a magical Christmas

As Christmas falls upon us and 2022 comes to an end, may you be mindful of the positive changes you made this year and focus all your wondeful efforts into making 2023 your best year yet!

Reality is now – I’ll say that one again – REALITY IS NOW – so do your best to truly live in the present moment, whilst holding a better future in your heart.

We all have something that we want to improve in our lives but please don’t make the chasing of these changes, make you unhappy in the present.

Each present moment is to be savoured and enjoyed, without bringing in hurtful pasts or desired futures. When you are mindful of the now, you get to embrace the specialness of life.

Life isn’t always rosey, we all know that! We have all felt the feelings of loss, hurt, disappointment, sadness, stress and everything in between on this roller coaster of life and it ain’t pretty. Don’t let your imagination be flooded with worry of something that has not happened yet and indeed may never happen. Instead, try to feel the real beauty and true meaning in those thankful moments that make us feel blessed and forever grateful to experience the magnificent wonders of the world.

You are one of those amazing wonders and I wish YOU a magical Christmas, successful 2023 and prayers of hope that you realise how truly special you are.

Be the Christmas Miracle.

Forever grateful for your presence, love Clarabelle

The Happier Side of Life

Life brings a roller coaster of changes that we are often not prepared for.

What do I know about what you’re going through right now? I have no idea if you’re feeling good or lying low but I do know that life brings a roller coaster of changes that we are often not prepared for.

We all have an emotional response to what’s going on around us and some of us are better at controlling that emotion or how we react to it.

There are so many different factors that determine how we respond to any given situation and I bet you, if you’re having a particularly bad day, you won’t respond the same way as you would, if you were having a good day.

Let’s keep it simple and say a bad day may equal a bad response and a good day may equal a good response. Therefore, if you want to respond better to challenging situations that come your way, it’s better to focus on the things that will help you have good day.

We can’t control other people and what they do but we can do as much as we can for ourselves to have a better kind of day.

Lately, I’ve been trying this out for myself and through my own daily efforts, I have managed to have more good days and good reponses than not so good ones. Below is a short list of some of the things I have been doing:

Reduced my intake of refined sugar. Although I really do love sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolates and all that lovely stuff, I noticed it was having a detrimental effect on my mood. I certainly had more of a short fuse when sugared up to the max with these delicious fancies. By cutting these out of my diet for the last four months I have noticed a positive difference in my mindset and mood.

Cut out caffeine. Caffeine has always been a tricky one for me, I love to love it but hated the brain crash when the caffeine wore off. This, so called crash put me into a low and cranky mood and I didn’t like that one bit. So I decided, let’s cut this stuff out of my diet and see how it goes. I must say my mood has definitely uplifted and my energy levels are higher and more constant throughout the day.

Got myself back in the gym. I stopped the gym for about a year and I did notice the negative changes in my body because of it. So, I started going back to the gym 2-3 times per week and this also had a positive impact on my energy levels and mood.

Running. I love to run but again, like the gym, I stopped it for a while and I’ve got to say, I really missed my running. Running makes my whole body feel good and alive, so I make sure I run at least twice a week to get the full goodness from it.

Writing. I love writing on this blog and creating poems but I stopped for about four years and that wasn’t good for me – I was unhappy with not satisfying my creative side. So I started writing on this Clarabelle blog about five months ago and that makes me feel on top of the world.

Went on holiday. I hadn’t been on a proper holiday for a number of years and it was well overdue. This holiday really did refresh my body and mind and reminded me of how good it is to ‘getaway’ every now and again.

Positive Relationships. I started focussing on having more positive and meaningful relationships that fulfilled me and inspired me to be a better person and reach for my goals. The power of having these good relationships in your life are highly impactful and can be a real gamechanger in terms of your own love and happiness.

Sleep. One of the most important factors for me in having a better day is by getting a good night’s sleep for at least 8 hours every night. I love my sleep and never feel guilty about putting my head to rest and going for a well deserved nap. Give me a great night’s sleep and I’ll be on point the whole day through.

Water. Since I stopped the caffeine, I don’t drink fizzy soda drinks or anything like that anymore. I mainly stick to sparkling and still water and aim to drink about two litres of this beautiful stuff everyday.

Motivation. I love listening to a little bit of motivational talks everyday, it just keeps my head in the right space. Every morning I listen to “7 Good Minutes” on Spotify and it really does have a positive impact on my focus and mood throughout the day. I always say to myself, “if they can do it, I can do it” – it’s powerful stuff!

There are so many other factors that I could add to the above list, like being around family, going for walks in nature, being by the sea, watching a beautiful sunrise or sunset, doing more fun things and the list goes on.

It really all comes down to choosing to do those things everyday that will help you be a better you and ultimately have better days. I am sure most of us, if not all, would rather be around a positive, good energy person that handles most challenges well and chooses to live on the happier side of life.

Poetry Corner #16 – Sweet Sunrise Sublime

Awakening the world

My favourite time of day to write poems is very early in the morning or very late at night – when everything is much quieter around me.

I often dream of sitting in my ideal beach house writing poems on the ocean view balcony, whilst watching the sunrise or sunset – I plan to be doing this sometime in the future.

I therefore dedicate today’s poem to the dreams of tomorrow that I visualise today and what a wonderful feeling it truly is.

SWEET SUNRISE SUBLIME

The sun it rises,
glistening so bright,
it patiently waited,
goodbye to goodnight.

It’s warmth is tender,
a magical glow,
out to the horizon,
blue ocean below.

I stare at it softly,
with hypnotic eyes,
how blessed I am,
an amazing sunrise.

It gives me energy,
feelings of delight,
awakening the world,
happy and bright.

Thank you dear sunrise,
you make me feel good,
a whole day with you,
uplifts every mood.

No matter the weather,
you always shine
blue skies or rainbows,
sweet sunrise sublime.

Dream Achievement

It’s all up to you

Imagine what’s beyond your dreams, I mean once you have achieved them – visualise that right now.

Think yourself into that zone of dream achievement – isn’t it such a wonderful happy place?

I love this quote by Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” –  it says it all to me really.  

It’s great to dream, but even better to live out your dreams and it’s all up to you.

I have dreams, lots of wonderful dreams and I believe that they will come true for me one day. I don’t sit around waiting on them to happen – that will never work. I truly go to work on my dreams everyday.

So I ask you today, to think about the dreams you want to make happen and I encourage you to take tiny steps each day into achieving them.

Wishing you a sensational day, dreaming, doing and more importantly, LIVING.

Magical Thoughts

Passion serves purpose

Creative flow meets words of wonder! This poem is for you.

Igniting your spirit,
uplifting your mind,
believing in better,
one of a kind.

Magical thoughts,
words of wonder,
create such special,
like lighting from thunder.

Inspired by you,
entwined with vision,
moving forward,
with clear precision.

Something so strong,
pulling you there,
nothing else matters,
now you’re aware.

Passion serves purpose,
time gifts us well,
experience and knowledge,
now you can tell.

Open the door,
imagination set free,
you always knew,
this was meant to be.

Poetry Days

I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes

I hope you’re having a truly wonderful day – I really do.

I was reflecting today (28 October 2022) on how much I love writing poetry, so much so, that I decided to change this whole Clarabelle blog into one GIGANTIC POETIC VISION.

So you will see that some things have changed around here and my main aim will be to continue to write poetry daily and share it with you. Going back to my roots and keeping it simple.

I will still add in some empowerment food for thought along the way but my strong focus now, going forward is, quite simply, to write poems and share them with you.

So there you have it. Poetry all the way.

The Clarabelle Podcast will now become the Clarabelle Poetry Podcast and I will share my spoken word poetry with you.

The motivational and encouraging posts will now be entwined in some sort of poetic format.

The videos I create, will all be poetic.

The Clarabelle products on sale currently all contain poetic verses and I will continue with this.

Basically, I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes.

So that’s it for today. I am currently in Bonny Scotland visiting my lovely Mum who is celebrating her 80th birthday but I will continue to write on here daily whilst away.

My motto today is: keep it simple and do you

Thank you for being here.

Poetry Corner #13 Catch the Light

let it shine all around

Touched by emotion,
loving life,
freeing my spirit,
from worry and strife.

Keeping it together,
hoping for all,
rising faith,
breaks down the brick wall.

In the twist of the wind,
no enemies appear,
all friends together,
filled with good cheer.

An unfulfilled heart,
takes you beyond,
frozen miracles,
reflected in the pond.

Catch the light,
let it shine all around,
mystic and magic,
will soon be found.

Quitting Caffeine

With the highest of highs, came the lowest of lows.

I have been a massive fan of the popular cafe latte and chocolate topped cappuccino since I tried my first ‘proper’ barista coffee in 2005 and then, I was quite simply. . .”hooked”.

One of my favourite past times used to be going to my favourite coffee shop, having the perfect window seat and writing poems in my notepad – I really loved it! Such a simple thing to do and I could easily sit there for hours people watching, pondering, reflecting and writing away. It was soulful bliss to me.

I actually didn’t realise how much the caffeine was adding to my enjoyable experience and how my creative mind seemed to flood with rhyming words and magical rhythms as soon as the caffeine hit kicked in. I later discovered that although this caffeine intake was great in the short term moment, it wasn’t so great for my long term mindset, sleep and general mood.

For me the instant buzz of caffeine raised my output to another level and my creativity and performance, albeit for a short period, was off the charts. However, with the highest of highs came the lowest of lows and I soon realised my body needed more and more caffeine to achieve the same hit. Well, this started worrying me and in all fairness, I just didn’t like it.

The negative effects of caffeine on me were too much to tolerate to keep on taking it. I experienced mood swings, adrenal fatigue, anxiety, heart palpitations, trembling hands, acne and mild paranoia. Caffeine was making me slightly psychotic, so I had to give it up.

It took me 26 years of drinking coffee everyday to then realise how much it was negatively affecting me – that’s a lot of coffee and a lot of money to Mr Starbucks.

Since 2015 I’ve been on a rollercoaster ride with caffeine – sometimes I would stay off it for many months and then try it again to see if my body could handle the effects any better. Nope . . . . . if anything, it was just getting worse.

So fast forward to today, 30 September 2022 and I am caffeine free once more. This time I not only cut out caffeine coffees, tea and soda drinks, I also removed foods containing caffeine, such as chocolate – damn it – such a shame on that one, as I really do love chococate but I just can’t take the cocoa content.

What can I say – I genuinely feel I’ve found me again. The real me without the stimulants and I’m starting to really feel great again. My mood is now balanced, calm and focussed all of the time. My energy levels are increasing everyday and I am improving greatly with my running. My sleep is undisturbed and peaceful every night. My creativity is back to where it should be, without the need for that caffeine fix. If I want a coffee or tea it’s got to be decaf/herbal and I never drink soda anymore, sparkling water is my thing now.

I have never found the process of cutting out caffeine easy. As a matter of fact, when I do start the detox process, my mood is low and irritable for about two weeks and the caffeine withdrawal headaches are 48 hours of intense throbbing craziness.

Will I ever go back to caffeine again? Not on your life! Caffeine just messes with the very essence of me and I don’t want that messiness in my life anymore.

The last few months I have also massively reduced my refined sugar intake and I think that has also helped me to get back to me.

How does caffeine affect you? If you rely on your caffeine fix every day to ‘perk you up’ and ‘stay on it’, maybe you want to have a closer look at that?

Quitting caffeine was EXTREMELY hard for me. I once heard this quote: “If you do what’s easy everyday, your life will be hard, but if you do what’s hard everyday, your life will be easy.”

In the longterm I want an easy life, so today I will do what’s hard.

One Word

There is so much POWER in our words

What one word best describes you?

Is there actually one word that would encapsulate everything that you’re all about?

Look for your ‘one’ word – can you think of it?

Even under copious amounts of caffiene, I could not think of that ‘one’ word for myself. I don’t actually think that word exists – so maybe I have to create it!

You see, when I challenged you to think of that ‘one’ word, it immediately put limits on your thinking but our thinking needs to be limitless in order to engage and change worlds.

So let’s get a little creative here. I think my newly created ‘one’ word needs to be blended into something so magnificent, you’re never going to forget it.

A bit like the stupendous word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the famous Disney Movie, Mary Poppins.

There is so much POWER in our words and they can be used for the greatest good or to disempower, so please be very mindful of the words you say to yourself and to others.

I’ve got to say, one of my favourite words is “aspirational” – for some reason, that word seems to “breathe life into me”.

Another word I seem to love is “exponential”. I was first introduced to this word by Broadcaster & Global Keynote Speaker, Rene Carayol at the “The Time is Now” Leadership Conference, held in Glasgow City Centre in 2009.

“Imaginative” another wonderful word that seems to ignite my spirit.

Okay, I need more time to create ‘THEE’ one word but I think you get the moral of the story:

When you add rules, limits and boundaries to your creative thinking, you are boxing up the best of you.

Remember you are a GIFT, so special, that doesn’t need to be boxed up.

Next time you’re in a team meeting trying to come up with an innovative solution or new concept, allow your thinking to flow freely with no barriers in the way.

I Remember When. . .

Everyone in the community knew each other and looked out for each other.

MY SWEET SWEET MEMORIES FROM THE LATE 70S & EARLY 80S

You could leave your house door open during the night;

You could go for an early sole run in the park with no fear;

You would chat outside to your next door neighbour for hours;

No one carried a mobile phone and everyone coped fine;

Children played in large groups outside after school;

Local playgrounds were filled with children, without the need for parents being there;

Children used their imagination and played ‘made up’ games with their friends;

You only had one true best friend but it was called a ‘best pal’;

We didn’t have a landline at home and no one really cared;

All family dinners were home made;

A holiday was going on family day trips to the closest seaside location;

There was only three TV channels and we felt spoiled for choice;

If you could afford a taxi, you were rich;

If you missed the bus, you had to wait another hour on the next one;

Those tiny bronze half pence pieces existed and you felt you had loads of money;

Children would jump for joy with a 10 pence mix up;

Children played water fights during the summer holidays with empty washing up liquid bottles;

Everyone in the community knew each other and looked out for each other;

Hardly anyone had a car;

Getting a 50 pence toy from the local shop, felt like Christmas;

The milkman delivered your glass bottles of milk on your front door step every morning;

As children, we played, football rounders, hide and seek, skipping ropes, kick the can, hopscotch, obstacle courses, sprint races, tennis, swingball, talent shows…and all outdoors!

My Dad, Grans, Granda, Aunties, Uncle, Godmother and some good School Pals were all living back then – now sadly missed . . . . . . oh how I remember when!

Yesterday’s Dreams

it does matter that you start

Let’s hope you are not craving today, the sheer magnetic power of your unfulfilled dreams – for that truly is a difficult pill to swallow.

What if though, you had another chance?

What if, you decided today, right now, to simply, GO FOR IT!

It doesn’t matter if you start a little or a lot of late, but it does matter that you start.

Imagine yourself, right now, in that place of achieving that very dream – isn’t it just, a truly wonderful feeling.

Yesterday’s dreams, are still there for the taking. Never close the door on what your passionate heart longs for.

Think of a world where everyone is using their innate talents to achieve dreams of greatness.

Now that truly is a dream come true.

Don’t limit yourself any longer – go do that thing, you know is absolutely meant for you.

Drive or be Driven

always visualise yourself winning

Personally, I prefer to drive my own way through life – sometimes the journey is smooth and other times it’s a very bumpy ride.

Life, with all its twists and turns, can somedays be higher than high, then the next day, lower than low – I guess, that’s just the way life is and we must, stay strong and roll with the punches.

Set backs in life are inevitable but it’s important that you remain determined and resilient as ever, as these powerful qualities bring real passion to the common phrase “keep going”.

Always visualise yourself WINNING, no matter what’s going on around you. I encourage you to DRIVE from within and get to your desired destination, with that amazing feeling of real self-achievement.

Remember, your deep experience in life, love and in work. You are crowned everyday with unique capabilities that are open to true growth and self-expansion

I challenge wonderful YOU, to forge your way forward into achieving your goals and aspirations.

Ponder on this thought for today…..DRIVE or be DRIVEN?

A Life Worth Living

you can always start today

What would it take from you each and everyday to lead a life worth living?

It’s a simple, yet HUGE question that is important for you to answer.

What does “a life worth living” specifically mean to YOU?

I want you to really think about that today and answer it with an honest heart.

To me, life is always worth living – even on tough days, there is always a golden nugget of learning to be found.

May every step that you take on this journey of life, be special and meaningful and if it’s not?…..well, you can always start today.

Maybe this is your calling!

you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there

I can honestly say, I haven’t had the Monday Morning Blues for a good few years now and I never want to have them in the future either.

I remember, in my much younger days, getting these feelings, which often started on the Sunday evening!

I know, most of you can relate to those feelings of ‘dread’ going into a job that, for your own reasons, didn’t feel right.

I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I ever got so low again going into a job, I would sort that stuff out super fast.

Thankfully, I know what I want from a job and how I can utilise my skills and experience to contribute effectively. I also know how I want to be led and empowered to bring my best game to the table on a daily basis.

You have the true capacity and pure potential to achieve everything you want from your work and you are in control of whether you make it or break it.

I believe you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there, so make sure you bring your ‘A’ game every single time.

There is this great quote by Rumi, “what you seek, is seeking you”, and for me, this quote is a wonderful reminder to never doubt your capabilities and be mindful of the many doors that are open for you – just walk right in.

You got this – always!

Inspired by Truth

honouring your core values

Be inspired by the truth and deepest wisdom that lives and breathes inside of you.

Intuitively, I believe you know what truly feels right for you and what is feeling forced.

I know we all know this but for some reason, we don’t always live by it.

When I say “forced”, I definitely don’t mean “challenged”, for I see the latter as leading to growth and that is such a good thing.

‘Forced’ is the opposite of truth and a backwards step away from who you really are.

By focussing your energies on honouring your core values, you feel free, happier and super strong.

Always stay true to yourself, for this is your life to live and you deserve it to be GREAT!

I See You

so strong and brave

I recognize your being,
everything you give,
your caring heart,
the way you live.

I see you always,
mindful and pure,
helping another,
you are their cure.

I believe in you,
so strong and brave,
you are the gift,
everyone of us crave.

Blue Rivers Run Deep

swim in inspiration

Empowering thoughts,
tell the story,
a mind so strong,
brings love and glory.

Sweet nature's gift
is here to keep,
a heartfelt wave,
blue rivers run deep.

Swim in inspiration,
live by the lake,
the current breathes life,
into each step you take.

Uplift My Spirits

to a happier place

Uplift my spirits,
higher than the sun,
guide me through,
all that needs done.

Tell me everything,
I need to hear,
even in silence,
let it be clear.

Sometimes I feel lost,
strange in a way,
not in the crowd,
but bewildered each day.

The path I have chosen,
doesn't feel right,
how did I get here,
without the pure light?

Is there a turning,
to a happier place,
where doing what I love,
fulfils me with grace?

If what I do seek,
is surely seeking me,
maybe this wrong track,
is where I should be?

And what if the rainbow,
is not far away,
and its spectrum of love
guided me to here today?

Breathe Again

clouds move the rain

Take a deep breath in and know you have this moment right here, right now and no one can take this specialness away from you.

BREATHE AGAIN

Each space in time,
can give you this,
the calmest breath,
serenity so bliss.

For when you know,
to breathe again,
the sun it rises,
clouds move the rain.

A chosen moment,
yours alone,
heavens open,
a miracle zone.

Momentum Moves You

get things moving

When you build up momentum in the pursuit of a dream or goal, it really does multiply your energies.

Mostly in the beginning of a “start up” phase, or for example, learning a new skill, it can take a whole lot of effort and focus to build those foundations and get things moving.

This is when the power of momentum really does help to make a positive difference.

So, keep up that consistency and channel your laser focus energy into what needs done and soon that magical momentum will kick in.

Momentum moves you and it can move moutains too.

I see you there….. WELL DONE!

The Sun’s Energy

in the deepest cave of hope

In the purest sunlight, the heart shines on like a beacon of love, dancing in the deepest cave of hope.

It is in this magnetic power a new mind is born and faraway horizons seem so close you can touch them.

Maybe all of the things in life, that don’t seem to make sense, were never to be thought about in that way.

What if, you were supposed to stay so present in each moment that thoughts of fear and doubt never ever manifested.

True thought can steer your mind in different directions – and the body, if in conflict or alignment with that thinking, will honour its preferred state of being.

Is your mind leading the way or is it your body? I think neither! I believe the magical field that surrounds your being always empowers the best out of you. It’s time to let this heavenly power communicate with your senses and create miracles through you.

You have everything you need, right here, right now to go far beyond what you think you are capable of achieving.

The sun’s energy cannot exist without you, that’s how important you are to this world.

Light Comes Back

stars appear

This is one of my favourite original quotes and the excerpt is taking from a short poetic story I wrote many years ago. My plan is to turn the story into a book one day….watch this space!

“The midnight sky is vast and black, yet stars appear and light comes back.”

A Wonderful You

petals of love

Amidst the clouds,
of a foggy mind,
hard to see,
difficult to find.

Appears hope,
just a glimmer,
igniting life,
joy does simmer.

Time means nothing,
as people and places,
open our hearts,
smiles on their faces.

Flowers like heaven,
flourish and bloom,
petals of love,
enlighten each room.

Be still in the now,
as heartbeats awaken,
a wonderful you,
is there for the taking.

When Light Meets the Dark

glowing magnetically

The light so daring,
burning bright,
glowing magnetically,
filled with delight.

Giving me hope,
gifted with pleasure,
dancing in ambience,
shining like treasure.

A symbol of desire,
a glistening spark,
dreams are awakened,
when light meets the dark.

Be Ready to Learn and Enhance Your Writing Skills

Write with a lyrical heart…..

SongSmith


Songwriting News

We make use of our mind to relay our feelings, to pass on what we are suggesting. Writing lyrics makes use of numerous elements of our mind; not only our feelings. For instance:

  • Awareness
  • Imagination
  • Education
  • Assessment
  • Study and Impartiality

You can enhance the expertise of your lyric writing and discover new methods of expressing yourself. As you gain knowledge, you naturally set up a tool kit which you utilize to articulate yourself.

Writing Lyrics Efficiently

Some songwriters and lyricists think that formalizing the building as well as utilization of a songwriters’ toolkit will in a way lower the validity of the formed lyrics; however, this is short sighted.

The reason is that to begin with, lyricists already implement a lot of skills which they gained knowledge of in a formal way, such as writing and reading.

You are going to have gained knowledge of the essentials of language, how…

She Writes with Spirit

happy writer of poetry

On my day off on Saturday, I put my car into the garage for its MOT test and whilst I was waiting on the results of the test I headed into the local coffee shop for a nice warm breakfast and a lovely cup of coffee.  It was snowing outside and I was all cosy sitting next to the glowing woodburner whilst drying off.  I wrote 8 poems during that time, the words just flowed out of me, it felt beautiful, it felt right.  Here is one of them for you:

She Writes with Spirit

She writes with spirit,
And passionate charm.
When her mind is free,
It releases all harm.
There is no pain,
In a purposeful thought.
An alignment of values,
Gives such a lot.
Her point is wise,
Her words inspire.
To capture all hearts,
This is her desire.
So she keeps on musing,
Whenever she can,
Like the oxygen she breathes,
Over the distance she ran.
She creates from space,
To feed her soul.
And continues this journey,
It makes her feel whole.
