The Age: Bali Nine’s Renae Lawrence to be released


if you let me

The Lonely Author



if you let me


If you let me
I will be the shining light
That peeks over your horizon
To start your day
I will be Michelangelo
When I paint your toe nails
So many pretty hues

If you let me
I will be your loving muse
A blank canvas that encourages
The brush strokes of your verses
While my fingers caress your hair
As I intoxicate myself
On the scent of your shampoo

If you let me
We will be drunk in love
While I conquer the demons
Of your lovers come and gone
As our dreams walk the same path
For as inevitable as my next breath
I will fall in love with you

House of Heart

As far as the eye can see
cracked and yellowing stones
jut from the verdure.
Bronze plaques covered
in leaves rustle in the forlorn zephyr.
Worn flags mark the treasure,
designate where valor lies.
Stiff with age they quiver
like the hearts of caged doves.

Golden Stars

House of Heart

Capricious clouds billow then wilt

like airy sheers at an open window

whisked away into twilight.

Memories glide the corridors

of my mind, chronicles unnamed,

swept away like golden stars

on a rivers waves with no recall

of the scent of rain

or blossoms bursting in my chest

or a fire burning my tongue.

Inspired by “Stars on Water”

Try to get it!


Sometimes they feel sad …simply because they are not satisfied about their life..about what they have..

As a believer…I  am satisfied all the time…I know that Allah is with me always..every thing written by Him is good for me…even if it appears bad…but good is there always…

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُمْ بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ
“Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah: for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.
Note :
I am so busy nowadays…that is why my posts are so few…
The second schoolastic term is about to finish..
Best wishes dear friends ♧

The Moon and the Trees

House of Heart

Beyond the terrace
I pace barefoot through
the garden, past the blurred
flowers that bend their petals
as though they recognize me.
Brilliant in the starlight
the old tree stands apart
as if it needs more space to
reach so high having outgrown
the rest.
I have heard it’s sigh
in the song of a breeze
when it’s limbs reach
for the sky.
I wonder if it has eyes
to hold so much history.
I believe it is friends
with the moon.
I can hear them laughing at us.

For a Loaf of Bread by L. Martel


I did a drawing of this on October 5th, 2018 and decided to try it in oil. So I took a 12″ x 16″ canvas and made a start with oils. I added some faces on the left hand side because I thought it needed them. It’s far from being finished. Each face (some will be out of focus others not) needs work and the foreshortening of the hands isn’t right yet. Lots of challenge there.
