Happy Halloween

Moonlight Drama by L. Martel


This is a 24″ x 36″ oil on canvas I started last year. The title of the piece keeps changing because the tableau keeps changing. It started out as a moonlit night in the woods in the winter season. I added the moose on the right hand side then decided to add the wolves on the left. The woods on the left side was turned into a rocky cliff. The stream is running through it but I haven’t got that right yet. Also the wolves need a little more work.

Thought of the day


A leader leads with vision and wisdom” selfish people cannot be leaders because they cannot see beyond there own interests to see the big picture” a prophet derives from oppression, depression and regression!! The guiding premise of the universe is Morality”..

I don’t know why
but when I passed by 
you were there
enticing me 
to look your way

I asked myself
Will this pretty one love me?
love my touch?
warm my heart?
grow with me?

I’m glad 
I took you home
now look at you
full grown
showing your true enchanting form

So dainty
with its star-like petals
regal and elegant
not wild 
but charming indeed

Asters are daisy-like flowers that have grown wild during ancient times. They are considered enchanted for their wildflower beauty and lush texture. They mainly represent love, wisdom and faith and symbolizes patience. What a flower!

About the image: I was surprised by how small the flowers are. When I bought the seed packet I thought the flowers will be the same size as Zinnias. It was the first time for me to plant this flower.

The pain of regret is among the most painful emotions. I can’t help but express it on many occasions, whether it stems from personal guilt, a missed opportunity, or a broken relationship. In this article, I will share my personal experiences regarding regret, and how you may overcome its pains.

Over a period of six months, I had really done myself in… it was in the middle of winter when one of my relationships began to fall into pieces. We would argue, fight, and most importantly, we weren’t there for each other, especially me. I would go on to slander her, and even tried to get her into trouble.

Well… what can i say? I simply wasn’t thinking. In a moment of anger and pain, i decided to hurt the person that has taught me more than anyone else. I continued to make foolish decisions until I was walked away…

The Lonely Author



these vagabond days


look at me

I am a vagrant

forever drunk on your words

an aimless wanderer

with no need of a compass

since mine only points to you

I am a gypsy

humming a song

as I loiter on your poetry

dreaming of a home

in the sanctuary

of your arms


these vagabond days

lead to lonely nights

of me

longing to be with you


It’s good to be back.  My vagabond days are over (for now).
