Poetry – another attempt


I realised it is April, poetry month, and it is nearly over



holding hands,

looking into your eyes,

walking in the moonlight together,kiss

counting the stars,

being close,

touching softly,

kissing gently,

passion ignites,


to be in your arms,

feeling them around me,

don’t let go,

touching your face,

trace your lips,

kiss you softly,

feel your hands on me,

kiss you greedyly,

enjoy your touch,

be close to your body,

pleasure, bliss,

and enjoy the oneness.

Optimism – thoughts


a good morning


According to Wikipedia optimism is :

The word is originally derived from the Latin optimum, meaning “best.” Being optimistic, in the typical sense of the word, ultimately means one expects the best possible outcome from any given situation.


Optimism is a learned habit, and it is positively contagious. Surround yourself with people who could infect you with positivity.
In turn pass your new good mood on to a friend or stranger in words and deed – let somebody have that parking space, let that person with only a few items cut in front of you at the market.
The simple act of doing something nice for others is actually a good pick-me-up all by itself.


Thank you Gallivanta for letting me use one of your beautiful photos

Optimism inspires, energizes, and brings out our best. It points the mind toward possibilities and helps us think creatively past problems.


“The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser – in case you thought optimism was dead.”
― Robert Brault

And let us not forget the famous glass of water … half full or half empy?


How do you see your glass of water?

Optimism is

positive thinking,

positive attitude,

positive living!

Look optimistic towards the new day and

you will be surprised that miracles do happen!

While I was writing this post

Michelle has nominated me for the “I am part of the WordPress Family Award”, I am honoured

I am part of the family award

I thank Michelle so much and yes,

I do feel part of the WordPress family and I feel happy and safe there. I can feel the love and warmth, the compassion and hope within this family, I have grown to love in the last 10 months. I give you all a big hug and thank everyone for letting me be part of this huge family, and making me welcome and receiving me in the midst of it. This big family gives me inspiration, thoughts, love, care, knowledge, new ideas, laughs, tears and all in all so much happiness.

The rules are as follows:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family

4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them

5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people who have taken you as  a friend, and spread the love.

Quoted from the Rules:

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award”

♥ ♥ ♥

It is always hard to find just a number of people to nominate and with this one , we are all part of the family! Everyone deserves this award. Still to be within the rules, I shall nominate 10 bloggers.

If you do not do awards, this is a compliment and so I let you know that your blog is loved.

Here we are spread the love….


Love – thoughts


Love is the most powerful emotion

which can heal,



and simply be.

alove 1

You can find love anywhere… if you choose to see it.
You can give love anytime… if you mean it.
Lead with love today and see how much better you feel…

love 2

We can live without religion and meditation,

but we cannot survive without human affection. — The Dalai Lama

love 3

Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary.

What we need is to love without getting tired.

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

 Mother Teresa

love 4

Come let’s fall in love again,

let’s turn all the dirt in this world to shiny gold.



When you have nothing left but love,
then for the first time you become aware
that love is enough.

Spring is declared open!


London, 13 April 2013

I hereby declare Spring in London officially open!

I met a blogging friend yesterday and we wanted to go for a walk in the city of London. It was raining heavy and we had to dry off in a pub first. Then we tried our luck again and it was for a while not raining.

The first wonderful thing we saw was a rainbow, a beautiful rainbow. (Sorry my picture did not come out well)

Then we walked along some modern high concrete/ glass office blocks followed by old Victorian and Georgian houses and back to the busy main road.

In the midst of all the houses we spotted some beautiful fowers and new life coming out of what was just branches yesterday.

If you open your eyes even in a concrete jungle are spots with beauty to be seen.


My gallery shows some of the beauties captured on my phone camera.

Like a smile, flowers never fail to brighten our day. Even in rain!

Hope I can brighten your day,

wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

Feel the love – Poetry attempt for Poetry month


May your life be shiny and bright,

without shadows,

see the moonlight reflect in your eyes,

and the stars sparkle,

feel the love.


Dance in the rain,

see the rainbow.

Be full of hope,

full of passion.

Feel the love.


Find a quiet place,

feel free,

feel the silence,

be at peace,

feel the love.


May happiness find you

May you find happiness,

a gentle touch,

a kiss in a dream

feel the love in your heart.


Spring ? ! ?


Everyone is longing for spring and it must be round the corner……

This is the market place in Germany in my hometown, a truly colourful spring display


Even though every morning ( the last 4 days) was cold, dull and grey – this beauty lifts the spirits.

alife seriously

Enjoy life,

count your blessings,

find happiness in little things,

give love,

be generous with hugs!

Wishing you all a wonderful weeekend!
