I See Stars

"Do we gaze at the stars because we are human? Or are we human, because we gaze at the stars?"

sunny 21 °C

I crept outside under the cover of darkness
My feet gently brushing the dewy grass
The moon dimly glowed low on the horizon
My eyes were still adjusting to the darkness
The whisper of the ocean caressed the sand and my ears
A salty sweet breeze glided through my hair as I made my way to the waters edge

I sat amongst the sand
A warmth still buried with them after the radiant sunshine had set
I brushed my hands through the infinite grains
Soft and sparkling in the moonlight
I gazed up towards the sky and my breath was whisked away in the breeze

I slowly layed down allowing my body to be consumed by the earth
Thousands of stars shone brightly like diamonds against a black sea
They twinkled so daintily across the Milky Way
They were telling me their stories as I gazed into the past
I listened intently, captivated by their adventures
Their were more voices appearing

My eyes adjusted to the dark and could see nothing but their magnificent glow
I tried to look beyond them, into the blackness
I kept looking and looking and it just kept going and going
I can't even comprehend the vastness of eternity
How many millions of years they've lived
How many people they've looked down at, looking up at them?
For answers, love, life, support and freedom
How many of those wishes have they granted?

My whole body relaxed into the warm embrace of the exquisite Mother
I could see her shimmering eyes looking into mine
Hear her wisdom
Feel her warmth
And I know she'll always be with me

As I write the next chapter of my life
Filled with adventure, anxiety, stress, excitement and the unknown,
It gives me strength knowing that there will always be one stable element in my life
And that is the unconditional love from my family and the sublime nature surrounding me.

Sing Me To Sleep

sunny 28 °C

==="Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I’m tired and I want to go to bed
I don’t want to wake up on my own anymore"
Asleep - The Smiths===

The novelty has vanished
Here I am
I am me
But not the same
Quite a different me in fact
Yet you look at me the same
My inner self screams
‘don’t you notice the difference?’
But no
Of course you don’t
The change is all in my head
An invisible, powerful force
With strength it has led me this far
But now what?
I look around
Trying to detect that same force within someone else
But no
They’re all different
Different colours, shapes and strengths
We converse
But no
You still don’t see it

Like another star in the sky
Though I thought it shone more brightly?
You look into the night
‘ah yes, there it is…’
Blatantly oblivious
Instead, captivated by another
I look up at the stars
Each glimmering in a unique way

The moon stands proudly amongst them
‘oh dear moon, you can see it can’t you?’
He is busy with others
He stands strong and powerfully
High in the night sky
His exterior glimmering brightest of all
Like sunshine beaming off of a mirror
I glance at my reflection

Same hair
Same eyes
Same tounge
This is what everyone else sees
But my hair has danced upon many a breeze
My eyes have witnessed such incredible things
My tounge is hungry for the spices of life
I guess no one else can see it

It is mine
As I look around
Everyone’s force is unique
Some are similar colours and shapes
But all in all, different
Maybe one day someone will see some of my colour
Or some shapes

But it is something that is mine
I am here
I am me
Yes the novelty has worn off
Until my next journey
For now, I’m just tired
I look up at the glorious moon once more
A part of me wanting to talk
A part of me is already asleep
Sing me to sleep

Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind, and therefore winged Cupid is painted blind...

storm 13 °C

Passion is such a deep emotion, that when you experience it's overwhelming power, you are clear, free and know exactly what your heart desires.
There are many things in life that I love, but few special things that I love with a deep passion, truly drive me, motivate me and make me understand myself, my goals, my dreams and the world around me.
I feel this with music, travel and in particular, literature.

After recently watching The Dead Poets Society for the hundredth time, I was once again taken, the beauty of the film captivating my heart and soul.

Carpe Diem - seize the day, simply scribed under my breast, the very words I live by. Embrace and live in each moment, for each is a gift bestowed upon us by the universe.

Ideas and words can change the world - that each idea is precious and valuable, never doubt what you believe in, and if you live and breathe your beliefs, you have a unique power to change your life or someone else's world.

Make your life extraordinary - this life is yours. It is in your hands and it is up to you to make the most of it. I want a great life and I'm prepared
To do anything to make it extraordinary.

After spending the week flooding my thoughts with Keats and Shakespeare... I am constantly reminded of my dreams. When I'm in my element, with a book by my side, words in my head and pen in my hand... My world is clear. And there is no greater feeling than understanding yourself and feeling truly at peace within a single moment. And within this moment, you are invincible, untouchable, unstoppable and most importantly... Free.

And I embrace these precious moments when they occur, just every now and then... And the stars shine a little bit brighter, words taste a little bit sweeter and life is just that little bit more extraordinary.
