Breaking News: Simple Words

As a writer, I love words but I’ve found that simple words convey the most powerful meanings. ‘I love you’, ‘I hate you’, ‘you’re wonderful’ ‘you’re stupid’, ‘pretty’, ‘ugly’ etc. Choose your words carefully. Say what you mean and mean what you say and don’t say it, if you didn’t mean it….keep it simple!

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie

 

Start A New Chapter

quotes-about-life-open-book-blank-pages-story

Have you started to write a new chapter in your life today? If not, why not?  Was it because the last one didn’t make the best sellers list? Did you have writers block or felt you had nothing to write? Do you believe no-one would read or even care?

Stop focusing on other people when it comes to you and your life. In order to inspire others, you first have to inspire yourself. So, write your story and remember to be true to yourself and make every word count for something. Lastly, don’t let others write your story for you, because they’ll never get it right! Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie

The Moon

lluna-plena

This poem was written the night after the moon was the closet to the earth and could be seen beautifully on June 23.  These words echoed in my heart. Thought I’d share a small part of my writing life. I hope you don’t mind.

The moon

Silver lining shines bright

A second light in the middle of the night.

As loneliness creeps into my silent room

Overshadowing me trying to fill me with gloom.

Another lonely day waiting by the door

Hoping to see your face once more.

To no avail do you come

Still your voice whispers and my heartstrings are strum.

As the moon’s, light touches my face

A memory of you makes my heart race.

Darkness cannot fill the void

Remnants of your love leaves me overjoyed

Until the day we come together, you and I

On wings of light, I’ll fly, into the moon lit sky.
