Sonnet read by Sir Patric Stewart

The other day, as I contemplated participating in GloPoWriMo 2020, I found this fabulous advise in on or their posts

… “check out noted thespian and space captain Sir Patrick Stewart’s twitter account, where he is posting a video of himself reading one of Shakespeare’s sonnets every day, under #sonnetaday?”

So off you go – listen to a sonnet or two. Or all eleven so far… ❤️

Coronavirus: The good that can come out of an upside-down world – BBC News

Our world has changed immensely in the last few weeks but amid the upheaval and distress, there are reasons to believe we can emerge from the crisis with some human qualities enhanced, writes Matthew Syed.
The coronavirus has turned our lives upside down and, although we hope to return to some version of normality in the coming months, it is probable that nothing will quite be the same again. Many have lost their livelihoods and businesses, and there is no diminishing the difficulties - emotional and financial - this has brought in its wake.

But amid the darkness, there are also opportunities.

Opportunities to reimagine the world and one's place within it. Reversal techniques are typically used by people working in the creative industries to come up with new products or innovations. I wonder if we can all use it to seek out a silver lining or two amid the grey clouds.

I don’t know why.

But taking this crisis to grow and evolve a better world,

are for me the only option.

Lonesome Cold Saturday Night

Lonesome cold Saturday night
Lovers far from eyes sight
Separated by virus fright
Kept apart, acting right

Connected only by zero, one, zero
Challenging each to be an emotional hero
Learning how to digital love show
Delight in a faraway blue screen glow

Closeness but not physical such
Comfort without a hand to clutch
Sharing love, but unable to touch
Skin missing skin very much

As time comes for sleep
Longing go bone deep
Remembered embraces mind warm keeps
My hands substituting yours, orgasm upon orgasm me sweep

Insight Timer – app review — Mrs Delight

I downloaded this app because it was recommended in my Compassion Focused Therapy. And because I realized I needed help and guiding if I were ever to learn mindfulness and meditation properly. That’s also when I started my intense meditations. For about a week I used the app without an account all together. Which is […]

Insight Timer – app review — Mrs Delight

I decided it was time to reboot my other blog, which I started for writing reviews (mostly) in English, and then more or less abandoned because that was not the kind of writing I needed. Just the kind I dared to share with the world.

Now I know there are kind supportive people out there, who amazingly like what I write. Something that fills my heart with gratitude!

Thank you all! ❤️

Box – a Couplet

In the box, fragments of me
Shameful shards, bits I rather not be


I wrote this couplet a few days in my notebook, but couldn’t get any further. Now, I use it as it is for Franks Final Couplet challenge.

A couplet is two similar lines of verse. Both lines have the same meter. They do not have to rhyme. However, they should make sense together and have a similar metrical structure.

Night with the Muses

PHOTO PROMPT © Jeff Arnold

A quick check on the children. Stroking a forehead, tucking in feets.

Then the night belongs to me and my muses.

A cup of fragrant Yogi tea. A glas of wine.

Ritual to settle the mind before a deep dive. Immersion in past trauma, old harmful programming. Writing for hours upon hours, transforming fear and hurt. Into witty words. Beautiful stanzas. World’s born from imagination. Spinning rhymes, sounding syllables,.
Following feets and meters.

Word alchemy to heal.

The witching hour passes. The muses depart. Another night sacrificed.
Tomorrow comes the work of typing it up. Revising and editing for publication.
