Poem: In The Day Dream Hour

Quote of the day:

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. -Kahlil Gibran

image: Rustcity

Back in the day.
When technology wasn't a disturbance.
I wrote you letters.
I wrote you love letters with smears of fragrance. 

Page after page I wrote.
With fanciful multi coloured pens.
Like a painter working on a masterpiece.
It was like a rush...a sort of spiritual cleanse.

Minutes would turn to hours.
Time was of no essence and hunger had no meaning. 
A thousand and one crumbled sheets.
No laxity with emotions that were unforgiving. 

I became like a vocalist.
I was your poet, painter and musician. 
Shakespeare, Picasso, and Mozart.
My words became my audition. 

My emotions turned to enchanting songs.
I told no lies and held truth in a solemn embrace. 
A combination of a canary and a nightingale.
I flowed over mountains seeking love's hiding place.

Peace & Serenity*

  4. @uthman saheed: Hello, thanks for that and nice of you to visit!

  5. I love the quote from Kahlil Gibran. Wise words. And yes sometimes technology is a disturbance. I like writing letters but so often I sent an e-mail instead of an old-fashioned letter. That's why I love Postcrossing with postcards.

    Good post. Love the (sort of) poem or song.

  11. Beautiful! Letter writing becomes more and more of a lost art as time goes by. It is something to think about...

  12. A letter written by one's hand with words from one's heart.
    I love the feeling of holding a written letter in my is the next best thing to holding their hand.

    Very beautiful and so very true~

  24. Its funny yeah Oga Boss... How before now everything was so simple.. How "I love you" didnt just used to be words but spoken acSHion.. How a hand written letter had deeper meaning and would be more cherished than a meager WhatsApp message.. How an iPhone 6 or a long lasting 5k mac lipstick wasnt the most ghen ghen thing a woman wanted from her man, but she would rather prefer a kiss on the fore head as the most important from the man in her life.. Where has the world that we know gone to?! What planet are we on?! Man becomes woman.. prime Gist like peeps changing the world have become secondary gist.. Where did the world as we know transcend to?! Meeehnhnn Oma-she oh! Seriously Boss.. Oma-shee.. :(

    On a lighter note.. yyyyaaaaaayyy.. King BlogoraTTi (we coined that for you at YnC) sent you an invite on Instagram.. Biko tell your P.A to tell her P.A to tell their perm Sec on instagram issues to accept it on your behalf.. heheheheh As a boss nah.. **Raises 2 hands up... hehehehehe Nigeria's Bureaucracy in Government ehhnnn.. They just like to sha put their entire village people on pay roll ssshhhha.. Cheers Chief of Staff..
