Watercolor Life

Canvas damp with chromatic tears

These brushed-away impressions
These barely-there expressions
These faint and flawed depressions
like mere suggestions
of the intensity
that is what my life has meant to me.

These pale, pastel patches reveal

Nothing more than shadow-play
And like whispers, none may
hear what they say
No sooner made, then fade away
in the cold, bold light of day.
(inspiration SableSwanVerse prompt ‘Watercolor’)

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!
