Five Random Facts

Five random facts you asked of me,
I'll write them here for you to see;
This may seem to be in a rush,
For that I can but nod and blush.

I have a certain deficiency:
I cannot see from tree to tree.
And yet, up close I perceive all
(Especially if it's something small)
And I think the fog that surrounds
Actually provides clarity
In my not-so-everyday rounds.

To two, to wit: I have my fears
That spring with all the months and years.
Insectoids of bloody fervour,
That fly and buzz blue murder,
Scare me to pupils contracted
And Fight-or-Flight re-enacted.

Let us not dwell on number two
(Although I assure you that I do),
Let’s get on our bike to three,
Which likes to dress like a marquis,
And strut and stride around the stage
In any costume of the age.
To act, for me, is to create
Anything I wish to make.
But now to number three ‘au revoir’,
We’ll see him at the correct hour.

Four facts, building up to five, approach
Completion close. Time to encroach...
I am a quarter Seychellois
Which means I come from isles afar,
And that my grandmother is French.
I do hope that’s not such a wrench,
Because...well the French ARE the French.

Mais je parle assez bien, en fait...
Oh no! That would be five already met.
No, forget that,
Forget,
I say,
And know I once went to a place
Where dreaming spires arose with grace,
The universe was discussed by day,
And so much more dreamed to convey,
And all of history was taught,
And Roman battles likely fought.
It felt like home to me...
But as for that, it’s yet to see.

I miss you..

And your creative flows like this one.
I do hope that your just busy,
and haven't stopped writing.
You know that if you did I would find you.
Seek you out with blank paper and pen.
Thrust them towards you and have you start again.
Just saying..
^_^

Hey ashes :)   I havent been

Hey ashes :)

 

I havent been writing much or been on here for a while... sorry about that.

 

Writing essays all the time at uni drains my words out, I guess. The history of what has been written overtakes you... and I can't really think so clearly at the moment. 

 

I am writing, but very infrequently. I wouldn't mind starting again at this stage, in many ways, but as it is I'm just trying to find or remember the reasons I had for keeping going.

 

It's nice to know I'm missed though. Though I don't want to put anyone through sadness by my absence.

Silly.

You are not putting me through sadness at your absence. I do understand that people have a life outside the writer world. ^.^ I just wanted to make sure that life has been kind to you, and that you are hanging in there, and basically to see how you have been doing since you do not get on that much anymore. I do hope that the day comes soon to answer your question. ^-^ and of course I miss your face around here! I like reading your words. I have you in my favorites. ^.- so sometime soon grace us with some more of your poetry. Take care of yourself! *Hugs*Laughing

Yeah, no, of course.   I'm

Yeah, no, of course.

 

I'm trying to keep going. Things kind of fell apart and now my ability to function is reduced from what it once was. I'm ill, I guess.

 

Thanks ashes, the same for you :). Yeah, a lot of people have been telling me to do that recently. In all honestly I can't visualise what they mean when they say it. But thanks anyway.
