Drifting in a dream

With its soft caresses

And convincing allure

Deeper into its spiral

Of picturesque romance

That paints you blind

Deceptive and dragging

Until the weight drops you

Stuck in a crevice of deep denial

Desolate in that dream

Or so it seemed

Now a fully raging nightmare


Returning to poetry writing after a year and a half. That’s a long time!

Weekly Photo Challenge – New: One Sketch, One Shade


What better way to start the year than to experiment and sketch with colour pencils? I usually just use a lead pencil to draw/sketch but since my sister gave me a brand new set of colour pencils, I decided to put my drawing/sketching skills to the test. I’m absolutely loving it so far!

You can take a look at more of my drawings here.

I Count Five


I went on a vacation with the family this summer and sat on a plane for the first time in 14 years. It was a pretty amazing holiday and we visited four countries in just over a month.

To mark the countries that my sister visits, she purchases a flag from each one. I derived the idea from there and in remembrance of my holiday, decided to paint the flags of the countries that I visited.

I count five because I also painted the flag of the country I live in, which lies in the middle.
