Inspiration

Where is it?
I can not plainly see;
just where can it be?
Why must I sit
in this brain fog
for eternity?
I stare at the page
It stares right back
How rude can it be
when I’m in a pickle
It gives me flack
while I float
through this riddle
I’m tired of searching
My muscles ache and
my aching bones groan
I’d love to escape from

this unpleasant zone
So if you see it walk by
please give me a shout
and block its way out
It’s been quite uncomfortable
living in this drought

“Walking the Talk”

Have you ever “talked” about “doing” something, but never did it? I have, so I’ve chosen this year “for doing” and I’m excited to say that my first poetry book is in the production process. I am publishing it through Xlibris and they have been really great to work with. It is expected to be released in October.

Most importantly, I’m dedicating the book to my parents, In Loving Memory of Mom. I wish I had committed to it before she passed away, but I can only move forward now and do it for Dad. Anyway, I just thought of sharing some exciting news and am proud of myself for finally “walking the talk!” 🙂

I also know several other friends who are publishing books, so this truly is the year “for doing!” I’m excited to read them all!

Thanks for visiting and I wish you
a wonderful weekend ahead
and encourage you to…

MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!

Fossils of Memory by Kruti Mehta

Hello Everyone. I am Kruti Mehta, an avid blogger and upcoming author. I have been blogging for the past the 2 years on http://www.10eveningflowers.wordpress.com. While I am not able to connect through many of you, there are enthusiastic friends around me helping me out with the same. Lauren is definitely one of them.
I started blogging back in 2011 with a passion for writing. In the same year I had fantasy visions of a girl, Rhiana. They were so strong that I had to write a story on it. And I started writing a story of a young girl Rhiana Fosters.
“In the small beautiful village of Avina lived Rihana Fosters. Rhiana is a beautiful young girl who gets spooky dreams about places and people that are completely unknown to her. Do these dreams mean anything or is her mind playing tricks on her? Is someone trying to give her a message? The book unveils the story of Rhiana and her friends and their journey towards finding the answers to all these questions.”
My book is named “Fossils of Memory”. Its releasing on 20th August. You can find more details on https://www.facebook.com/fossilsofmemory.
Journey towards it:
The concept of the book is based on imagination and fantasy of dark world. The places and characters are fictional. Writing this book was not an easy journey. I wrote till 2013 January and then I had a “writer’s block”. I waited for three more months to come out of it struggling. While the entire book was complete I could not come out with a perfect climax.

In April 2013 a friend of mine stepped in to the project. Being a blogger and writer herself she offered to help me finish the book. Her name is Himanshi shahs and her blog is http://playfulsoul.wordpress.com. I gave her the space of Co-Author and she drafted the climax for my book. This is how “Fossils of Memory” was complete.
I am a first time author and your support and suggestions would be highly valued. Do let me know if you like my book

Calm and Crazy

Hello All!

Once again, I’m behind on reading all of your wonderful blog posts.
I’ve been working on a project, which is consuming most of my time.

I haven’t written any new poems
and actually, I need to get inspired
I can’t re-post forever!
Anyway, the real busy part should be ending soon and I’ll be
visiting you again and trying to catch up a little.

To end your week, I’m sending some “calm” to soothe your “crazy.”

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend! 
Lauren ♥

Blogging Break…

Dear Friends,

I need to take a little break
from blogging and maybe even facebook.

There are some things in life that need my attention right now.
So I’m going to miss you all and I thank you, once again,
for your likes, comments and follows!
I may be a little slow in doing the same,
but please know my good intentions are there..

and I do appreciate your continued support.

I don’t know how long I’ll be “away,”
it may just be for a short time,
or it could be longer,

but I wish you all much happiness and
I look forward to returning to your inspirational
writing and photography.

I’m not crazy about “good-byes”
so instead, I say “See you later,”

and I’ll close this post with a
recent acrostic I wrote from early March
for those special friends in our lives…

including online! 🙂

SUN RAYS

For who wants to be alone?
Reveling in life’s joy or weeping
In between those moments; I’ll be your
Everlasting support, a listening heart,
Never will I take you for granted, for you are a
Dear soul who I can grow with, without growing apart

Stay Happy, Healthy and Safe and I’m sending Hugs your way!  ♥

my brain is resting, wake up

my pen is antsy

I’d love to know your

favorite genre when you

spend time in my world

III.

been bitten by the flu bug,

still not feeling well

life doesn’t slow down

when ill feelings visit us

The Untimely Muse

 

Letters float with clouds in the sky
while it’s vital that I focus and drive
Inspiration has its own timing
and it’s not always perfectly aligning
I’m not penning while watching the road
yet, containing my thoughts in some crazy code
and just when I felt they were safely concealed
they drifted away on kite’s tail over field

Can you relate?

TGIF :)

This is not meant to be
  a true work of art
I’m simply sending wishes
straight from my heart

For a wonderful day today
I’m so glad it’s Friday
It took forever to arrive
but glad it came anyway

So make it the best day
Smile to people you pass
Open a door for an elderly person
Move a little slower and not so fast

Just around the corner
is the much awaited weekend
Enjoy your time with family
and many treasured friends!

HAPPY FRIDAY TO YOU ALL! 🙂

Lauren

GOOD NIGHT, MY LOVE

They leisurely stroll

down the moonlit path

Their shoulders brush

as he takes her hand

Soft to the touch

Her eyes, beguiling,

She leans into him

and catches him smiling

 A serenading breeze

follows them for awhile

He’s enchanted by her presence

and her dazzling style

The path’s end draws closer

He pulls her to embrace

Her lips, breathtakingly near

He kisses her, cradling her face
