A Doting Hermes

In the delight of Autumn, familiar spices in the air, warm and content I am. A cup of tea, a whisper of music, some flicker of enduring memory. Tools for the day. Pearls of thought against the window pane.

By river's rest I conceived a cloud 

In sands to lay for warmth endowed

Down I sink where things are bare

For all that I could not share

Tongue laced in scarlet, to great remorse

Heavy is the message forth

How you are my pointed North

I believe not in the muse on high

'Til I found one basking in the sky

Silver pools from their restless step

Fingers draped in a vaporous sunset

Had yet to find a flower's meaning

Nor what a stone could want of dreaming

Tender is the cockle beaming

Why now do the waves hear me

00gif6.gif.2ee5dd5dbd1565b6e303dfdb0206e27d.gif

These hands know clockwork steel

Bruised with curiosity come reveal

How a blacksmith may yet feel

With a heart upon the anvil heel

Aww, thanks for the reaction Like @Ohayotaku . 🙂 

Had a long day, and couldn't sleep. Wasn't sure if this was going to be any good but wanted to test the blog features out. 💚

What did you have in mind? 🙂 

No clue. Therein lies the problem :P

i seemed to have something of a knack for writing in my younger days (short stories mainly). But never really cultivated it on account of lacking confidence. Always figured it would be more of a hobby & maybe something to try “later” after I figured out a way to actually earn a living. Sadly attempts to revisit it reveal that I’ve lost the focus I once had. Hell, anymore it’s a struggle to make posts that don’t turn into longwinded rambles that I don’t feel get across what I was trying to say even after proofreading  😂 Most don’t make it that far & get deleted. If nothing else, I suppose I make a good cautionary tale :P 
You post about some of the struggles you had recently, but also things like this showing that you’re still trying fun & creative things too. Get’s me thinking “dammit, I should/need to be doing that instead of feeling unmotivated, directionless, isolated, etc.” Guess I’m just too easily discouraged, so appreciate your positivity. Thanks for listening/reading.

Same here. I wanted nothing more in the world than to be a writer but things always came up and confidence was on a low. I couldn't see myself being all too productive with how much was already on my plate. I'm still writing as a hobby however, finding inspiration where I can. It surprises me, I learn a little more at each attempt and that alone can make me feel so fulfilled. Though it's so easy to have long, directionless periods of fatigue. The mind is just naturally fried from everything else it has to reflect on/take care of. 💜

 I like reading your comments. 😝 Thomas Wolfe had the same touch. He never knew exactly what genre he wanted dabble in, so he wrote in multiple formats, sometimes mixing them entirely. Critics and publishers claimed that his writing had no filter and he was constantly instructed to cut things that were deemed repetitive. Yet readers were interested in his raw context and hyper-analytical views. There's definitely a blessing to trailing off a bit. Sounds cliché but I personally think it adds character. Abstract rambling should be a creative class. 🤔 Imagine all the fun stuff you can pluck out of it and apply more structure to.

Things got a little worse for me, it was frightening to say the least, my absence has been due to healing and trying to find a good mental place to be. Nothing dark or anything, just exhausted and unsure. I get VERY embarrassed talking about what I'm going through. The sentiment:

Is completely understood! I'm somewhat stoic offline, mainly not to worry family or friends. The one time I did try to open up online as a way of therapy, someone told me "nobody cares, take that self-pity somewhere else." That stuck with me for a while but it was on a site notorious for trolls, so I don't know what I was expecting. 😆 Still, I often feel like there are better things people can engage in than how I'm doing/feeling. Everyone has their struggles and that I should try to apply more encouragement that will actually aid others in their own. Otherwise we could form a circle and be here all day, sulking, making campfire songs. 🤔 Ah-hem, that wasn't supposed to come off as cozy as it did BUT here we are. xD 

Thank you, for listening/reading. 

I would be interested in reading something you've written/wrote. We have a dedicated writing section on here for a reason. 👉👈
