no mask

no cover

no voice

no sound

solo

in my verse

as light fades

***

for pain

has no shelter

nor has love

***

silence

the crimson light

of a newborn day

joie de vivre in

every breath I take

treading footsteps

echo the sound

of silent innuendos

as thoughts fly away

like nectar dripping

invading my senses

where muses play

I’ll write you a verse

and softly whisper

“come play”

convoluted maze

tears mixed with mud and blood

dwindled in the dust

PRISMS OF FATE

Posted in Daily Life, Emotions, Family, Friends, Life, Musings, People, Personal, POETRY, Random, Reflections, Spirituality on January 12, 2011 by buttercup600

  

 

fading brightness

from mountains of glory

to canyons of fate

golden shades melting

turning into brown

the stars have dimmed

in the sky once bright

shine your rainbow prism

through the rift of clouds

where my feet will follow

and my heart will hold

visions of the dark night

  this never-ending rain

full of sorrow and pain

where my hands bleed

against my aching heart

réflexion

Posted in Dreams, Emotions, Friends, Musings, POETRY, Random, Reflections, Spirituality on December 20, 2010 by buttercup600

 

 

before rise of sun

everything seems grey

in habitual ambience

as I recall your reflection

a desire for movement

where my secrets are safe

and in the dark

I ache

for your slow embrace

take me – all the way

to the bone

but

silence

about the one

who matters most

walking the streets

of no direction

where I still seek

resonance….

and

YOU

Crayfish Salad (entree)

Posted in Cooking, Family, Friends, Random, Recipe on October 26, 2010 by buttercup600

A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be crayfish (lobster) salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands.
Lord Byron 

 Crayfish is a freshwater variant of the lobster.

INGREDIENTS

  • Sea salt and pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1.5 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon chopped coriander
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil + more to drizzle
  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 150 g (5 ¼ oz) drained cooked crayfish meat
  • 1/4 English cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced finely
  • 1 Pink lady apple, cored and diced finely, drizzled with lime juice to prevent discoloration
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced finely, drizzled with lime juice to prevent discoloration
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion + 1 teaspoon
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds, to top
  • Watercress leaves, to serve

Steps:

  • Have six appetizer plates ready. In a small bowl, combine a pinch of sea salt, pepper, the cumin, the zest and juice of 1 lime, ginger, coriander and olive oil, and whisk to emulsify.
  • With a sharp serrated knife, peel the skin and pith from the grapefruit. Cut the fruit into segments, discarding the membrane. Dice finely and set side. Dice the lobster meat finely.
  • In a large bowl, gently toss the crayfish meat, cucumber, apple, grapefruit, avocado and 2 tablespoons of red onion. Drizzle with the dressing and toss again.
  • Place the ring mold on top of one plate. Pack 1/6 of the fish preparation into the mold and remove the ring. Repeat with the other five plates. Top with chopped red onion and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and decorate with watercress leaves. Serve immediately.

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
