Listen

Still your tongue and become mute,
Let the beauty of your mind keep time
with the rousing sounds that surround you –
allow yourself to be aware
of everything that shares the Earth with you –
both awake, and insensate too.

Be moved by the muse of movement,
And be cognizant of all you see
and hear and taste and smell and feel,
and blend it into poetry, by fusing what is real
with the imaginary, to produce a perfect way
to heal your torment
by seeking relief in the pure belief
that everything is meaningless
and yet still somehow blessed
with a happiness that goes beyond
mere serendipity.
(Inspired by #SenseWrds prompt ‘Hushed’ and #MadVerse prompt ‘Movement’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
