Every moment, unique in its own. Life is beautiful.

Stand with me

I don't want to keep you,
I don't want to own you,
I don't want you to follow me
And I don't want you to lead me.
Just stand with me
And I will be happy.

Please Sun, stay and play

The sun is shining,
I am smiling.
If I asked real nice,
Do you think the sun would stay and play?
We could hold hands,
And we could be friends
That never end.
We could face the light,
Never to know our shadows
Forever in the sun we'll smile.

Lest We Forget

ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918).

As a result, one day in the year has involved the whole of Australia in solemn ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. That day is ANZAC Day -- 25 April.

So many lives given, for so many to live.
Safety put aside, to be in place for their loved ones and nation.
Many tears shed, many memories held onto.
Forever in our hearts, forever our gratitude,
For the men and women who risk their lives,
Carrying the pride of their nation as they face the unknown. 
Lest we forget.

Picnic piccies!

So I'm kinda excited about tomorrow, the weather has been beautiful lately, and myself and some friends of mine who I have known since primary school (!!!) are going on a picnic!! :D

Two of the gals have beautiful little boys (One who I am godmother for and absolutely adore).
One friend thought I was nuts for suggesting such a thing! haha, but they came around, and I am so excited! 
I get a chance to take some pictures, along with some great food! :)

I love taking photos, mainly of natural un-posed shots that capture a moment which would otherwise go unnoticed. There's something special about capturing a child's emotions or facial expressions, it's like you've caught a glimpse into a magical world that only they can see!

Such magic!

52 Week challenge, week 12-14

So I started a challenge at the start of the year to take one picture of myself each week.
Sort of a way to be comfortable with the person I am, and see if there is any transformation by the end of the year!
Week 12
Week 13

Week 14


I cannot take this anymore,
Like a thousand times before.

Leave the pieces on the ground,
This time I won't be brought down.

Need to say...

There's something I want to, need to, say...
But the words won't travel up
From my heart, they just stay down there.
Too scared of showing up in front of you,
Only to be abandoned in the cold lonely air.

Don't you get tired of this?
Back and forth we struggle to find the balance,
Like kids on a sea-saw,
Too stubborn to lose.
It's time to let go.

Against all reason and sensibility this has happened!
I shake my head in the absurdity of it all.
How is this possible?
"This is your payment" Karma says to me,
Yes, Karma.

There's nothing more I can say to that.

One wrong turn
And her wiry fingers have clawed around my heart.
This is my due, but when will it end?
When will it be that my heart will be mine again,
Mine to give to someone who will give me theirs back?

7 things...

I was given my first award by Alice In Wonderland, a beautiful soul, and I have been asked to share 7 things you may not know about me!

I have a book of poems (for lack of a better word)  that no one has ever read.

When I was younger I genuinely thought if I believed enough, I could fly! (I sometimes still do!)

A way I can tell if I like someone is by looking in their eyes! You can always tell if a person has given up on the wonders and hope of life through their eyes; just in the way you can tell they still have curiosity and trust in the world they live in.

I think I have a gift, but I don't know how to harness it. 

Jewel's "A night without Armor" is the first book of poems I had ever read. I wanted to be like her so much, she has helped me to be the person I am today now that I think of it, such a strong soul.

I can't stand when people chew with their mouth open! I get so angry! 

I prefer to listen more than talk. 

So, I now leave it open to answer any questions you may have for me!
Anything you want to know, fire away!

Focus on your smile

It's occurred to me lately that people need to focus on what makes them smile, not frown.

I just posted on my facebook "What's one thing that made you smile today?" And it attracted such a range of responses, some funny, cute, kind and beautiful responses!

When you think about it, everyday there will be at least one thing that will make you smile!
Be it a text message from someone you like, something on tv, a song, a childs laughter, or a spontaneous memory!

Sure there will be things that make you frown or upset possibly, but really, being negative is such an energy drainer! And being negative becomes a bad habit.

So each day, just think back on something that made you smile! Write it down, share it or blog about it!

Keep smiling beautiful souls!! :)

There's something calming about the wind,
Feeling life caress your skin so softly,
knowing too well its strength and power.

It can sweep away your thoughts,
Leaving you with loud silence,
That beautiful loud silence,
As you close your eyes
And let life sweep you away.

Water Eyes

In my water eyes
You see my strength,
You feel my power,
You hear my roar.

You see my weakness,
You feel my love,
You hear my truth,
In my water eyes.

I See Blue!

Ever noticed that there is a colour you are always drawn to?
For me it is blue...
Perhaps this is because it represents my water zodiac,
Perhaps it is because it doesn't represent a 'typical girl' colour,
Perhaps it's because it is such a calming colour,
Perhaps it reminds me of my Grandma's blue & white dinner sets,
Perhaps it's because it means clear skies,
