Photo: September colours and tankas

eternal blue guarding above us
sands of time bleed in the evening lights
days turn into dust, like a waterfall they spill
the saddest colour across the horizon
for those who dream about breathing

your life path breaking under the snow 
in the darkest of nights when you see things clearly 
- there is no turning back 
soul finds the strength to run free 
even if just to warm it's dreams in lava

 heavy lights of the morning 
unkindly pushing us forward 
but our hearts are standing still 
carrying sadness of yesterdays 
numbness taking complete control
leaves put on their brightest colour 
before they fall down 
a million roads to thread 
dividing lines of Earth's curvature 
moon dust in our lungs
Absolutely in love with autumn colours. Especially the sunsets. September ended fast and the days were filled with work, still I found the time to create. Tried new things. And now there is a light at the end of a tunnel, I just hope we'll manage to make things better. 
I'm exercising more, too bad the weekend was rainy and I didn't go running, but I do have more energy. It feels great to return to "normal", to be able to dance and jump up and down ;) Pilates sure did return some muscle tone I lost. And I also found that Silica gel is helping my joints and ligaments, here's some information I found:
"Orthosilicic acid is formed in nature as silica is dissolved by water. Though, silica is poorly dissolved by water generally. The presence of acid increases the conversion of silica in to orthosilicic acid. In the human body, this acid is provided by the stomach. When silica is ingested from water or plant sources, stomach acid (hydrochloric acid) aids in the conversion of the silica in to orthosilicic acid. As we age though, stomach acid levels decline, leading to declining silica levels in the tissues. Antacids and acid blockers also decrease tissue silica levels for the same reason. Silica is essential for the formation of the proteins collagen and elastin. Collagen gives tissues strength, while elastin gives tissues elasticity. Silica is essential for the formation of cartilage, and its strength. Declining levels of silica lead to softening of cartilage, and increased risk of damage or deterioration to spinal discs and joint cartilage. In addition, silica has mild natural anti-inflammatory properties, which further helps prevent cartilage degradation."

"Silica is also one of the most important constituents of body connective tissue, including cartilage, vascular lining, tendons, and ligaments. Silica is found in the thymus gland, the adrenal glands, the liver, the spleen, the pancreas and is found in considerable quantity in hair. It functions as a cross-linking agent, providing strength, flexibility, and resilience to collagen and elastin connective tissues. Silica is known to play a part in the integrity of the bones, arterial walls, skin, teeth, gums, hair and nails, and has been used to alleviate eczema and psoriasis. Research is presently being conducted in determining the role of silica in rheumatic disorders and arterial disease."

And millet is delicious ;)

Until next time - stay hungry.

Poem: Where the starlight begins

Photo by Catrin Welz-Stein (

Where the starlight begins, we see a hazy vision of tomorrow.
In the silent corner of the night we dream of impossible dreams.
In search for a way to ignite them, growing stilts we borrow.
Where the starlight begins - we see a hazy vision of tomorrow!
Undying hunger to return to the sun, left us in sorrow.
Strange comfort we take in electric moon beams.
Where the starlight begins, we see a hazy vision of tomorrow.
In the silent corner of the night - we dream of impossible dreams!

 Poem prompted by dVersePoets. I also wanted to try Triolet poetry form.

Poem: Throwing rocks of their imagination through books

I found you in the glass shattering into space
I've slept on your shoulders and curled up at your feet
helped you shape your memories
as we played between right and wrong 
                     between real and fake
but your mind kept waiting
demanding something more
like a flower in a dry land
let's take a walk through a house
where children's dreams are caught
tables and chairs were battlefields 
                          OF THEIR IMAGINATION
the halls through which their fears haunt
the thrilling sense of wild spirits
caged somewhere in their youth
escaping into a kaleidoscope 
                THROUGH BOOKS
gazing at the lighthouse in the dust storm
the secret code to board the ship lingered on my tongue
I remember as if it was the last time
