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.


  1. The combination of lovely Tanka and exceptional detail about Silica is extraordinary. Maybe if we wrote lovely poems about the miracle of Silica, more of us would remember our science.

    1. it's something I've been thinking about, to include more science in the poems.. hm.. something to think about :)

  2. Love the poem. Moon dust in our lungs.....sounds more romantic than it really would least in any kind of large quantity. Beautiful poem and tribute to a beautiful season

  3. hey there...was missing you in the Pantry this morning...thanks for stopping in...i am on the road today and taking a quick pit stop....i like the soul coming alive...the dreaming of breathing is a cool line as well...the roads to tread and moon dust in our that as well..have a great week!

  4. The second & third pic are my favourites!
    All the clicks are so well captured & the captions..simply complement the amazing shots!:D :)
