Between the Stars

Little feet
tippytoed
away from me.

Now I watch them dancing,
every night,
between the stars.

I reach out,
but never get close enough
to touch the sky.

My vision blurry,
with falling tears.
But don’t worry!

I will always see you,
and remember
your laughing heart.

Just like the pain,
as your little feet found their place,
between the stars.

Lunch Break Adventures – Little Silver Glitter Dress

Ever wondered what a proper Fashion and Film blog looks like? Check out my friend Carolin’s blog Lunch Break Adventures, where I was just honored to contribute a fashion inspired poem!

Hi everyone,

As a passionate literature researcher, I always enjoy a good piece of writing. So, this month, I’ve got a special linguistic treat for you.

My friend Hanni runs a poem and short story blog and she was so kind to contribute a guest blog in the form of a  fashion poem.

Enjoy and don’t forget to let me know what you think!

 

Little Silver Glitter Dress

Little silver glitter dress,

sitting neat and tight,

makes us wade through a high heel mess,

’till we find the pair, that fits just right …

1st week of Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo 2014

The first week of Camp NaNoWriMo is basically over (tho theoretically only tonight), and I’m behind. BUT, I’m going to catch up, just saying.

In case you’re curious, here are the first few sentences that maybe won’t stay the first, since I decided to start the story earlier.

With still half of her breakfast roll in one hand and a piece of paper in the other, Ellen ran down the corridor passing one laboratory after another. Why was hers at the very end? She cursed as she stumbled and the roll fell out of her hand. She heaved herself up and kicked off her shoes. She kept running.

But thinking about it, maybe I should just leave it that way and keep writing on the other end of the story and push it forward instead of writing into the past, especially since the past is not the story I want to tell … sooo. hmpf

And just by copying these few sentences here, I realize I renamed Ellen into Elle a little later for no good reasons, though I already wondered why the name suddenly feels funny. So I guess I’ll just keep writing and worry about fixing it up later :)

March Recap, April Preview and the Picture of the Month

Besides developing a tendency for long post titles, looking back onto March, it was quite a nice month and exciting month. Not only because I started to workout again with 3 times per week, very proud face, but also because my family came around for an extended weekend and we had quite a nice time with exploring the are and all, and I dropped an egg and declared it to be art.

Then there were a few changes at work and I ended up quitting my job without having a new one. This was the first time for me to do it that way and I still feel as if I jumped off a cliff. So I’ll see how that’s going to turn out.

Next to some NaNoWriMo preparation, I decided to enter a short story competition and am already busy editing my masterpiece. It will be awesome and make me famous! Muhahahaha!

And for the statistic fans, the most popular posts in March were:

  1. Why watching porn is boring – 63 views
  2. Chaos. German style – 62 views
  3. Picture of the Month – March – 18 views
  4. Once upon a Time – Writing Challenge – 17 views
  5. Camp NaNoWriMo this April – 15 views
  6. Though my personal favourite is That Dino issue – 8 views.

So, what’ll come in April?

First of all Camp NaNo. I really want to have this story of mine written down and I even think it could work! Excited up and down bounces.

Then I really really want to finish the other short short story and submit it to the Writer’s Digest Your Story Contest #58. Check it, if you want to make me some competition.

Speaking of which, for lots of people it’s some kind of A Poem A Day-Month, though I won’t participate like last year, I’m definitely going to write the one or other poem.

Then of course! It’s April, so there need to be a new PICTURE OF THE MONTH!

Moon Beach

And about the rest … well, we’ll wait and see.
