Seasons


Nine years ago when I stepped into

my first blog post

I started the odyssey from which

all of us begin:

And like the seasons of the earth change

from one canvas to another

So did my vision.

My home was too small of a space

to fit into the trends

imprinted by business-minded influencers

way ahead of their ideas

and

who dazzled the blog world.

So instead,

Castles Crowns and Cottages

 developed

from the playful heights of poetic expression

where I met like-minded soul sisters

whose imaginations with wings tell a story.

We soared, together.

But



The calendar snatches from our clutch

that rare flower

that we think will bloom for us

forever.

Then

winter gardening begins.

Fallen petals

become seeds of faith


that are buried under layers 

of years

where an invisible growth

plots to return 

with 

a new you 

that says




A safe and successful landing

 to all of you

wishing to make your dreams 

a reality 

as you learn what it really takes

to be an artist in the age of changing

seasons.

Après un Rêve

The world needs a fairytale

and

this weekend

somewhere around the world

in 

your hometown

and in mine



anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord
 
 someone's love bled 

in praise 

for a forever love

for a child

for a forgotten soul

even for 

an enemy.

I don't know about you

but I know

this is what I was meant to do:

To dream

and to love 

it all out

then witness what happens

after a dream
