    ~ Writer's Thoughts ~

    I once wrote, that I scribble my thoughts to express my raw emotions, to release my introspections, to share my anguish, to expel my demons. I write with uneasiness about sharing my words for fear of opinion,  I write because my story is worth sharing, I write because it is who I am. I just write it's what I do.

    ` But in the end I write because I am someone.`

    ~ Inspiration ~

    "Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin."

    - Danielle Bernock, Emerging With Wings

    ` fallen angel `

    I there was a feeling, I could have been someone, I used to fly with wings,

    ravages and horridness of a cruel tormented life, has broken those wings,

    nothing seems to be the same as before, struggles are to countless coming way too often,

    dark repressed demons always lurking in the shadows, consuming  every anxiety,

    I plead, I beg, I implore, please  harvest my soul,

    you see, I could have been someone, now, just a fallen soldier with imperfect wings, with a oneway ticket and reservations into Valhalla.

    café on the corner
    charmed culinary delight
    very nostalgic 

    cloaked as a simple bistro
    fresh coffee, steaming croissants

    ~ Writer's Note ~

    The simple act of sitting in my favorite corner café sipping an expresso is its own testament to my commitment to living the writer’s life. My daily routine is inspired by the simple drawings or masterful pieces of art by any artists that inspires me. I often turn to the portfolios of prolific artists, writers, and other creatives when seeking my ekphrastic inspiration. The richness I strive for often finds a place at  some of the fantastic virtual art galleries.

    To view a glimpse of my world, please visit and follow my IG page @s.j.beaux. you won't be disappointed. I will return the favor.

    Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you. Because one day you might wake up and realize you lost the moon while counting the stars.

    "I think perhaps I will always hold a candle for you – even until it burns my hand. And when the light has long since gone …. I will be there in the darkness holding what remains, quite simply"

    ` fallen love `

    when love has fallen
    a sad silence lurks within
    afflicting the heart

    silently breaking a hope
    abyss consumes the soul

    ~Writer's Notes ~

    There are few experiences quite like taking a long road trip and venturing somewhere you’ve never been before! It’s one of the few forms of travel where it’s all about the journey: the people, the stories, those moments which are hard to describe to someone who wasn’t there.

    I was inspired to write this poem after seeing a sketch by @moivelez_art (Instagram) He is a phenomenal artist, his virtual gallery gives us a glimpse into  a "Must See" world....

    This Tanka Peom encapsulates what it’s like to take a road trip with no specific destination, just following the "Road Less Traveled."

    ~ Inspriration ~

    “A passenger on a road journey is in the hands of a driver; a reader embarking on a book is in the hands of a narrator.”  - Romesh Gunesekera

    ~ Writer's Note ~

    After being immersed into the Asia-Pacific culture for many years, I developed an affection for the Japanese culture, art, and architecture.  Learning that a home is a place of refuge, of virtuous calm with windows into a harmonious contact with nature.

    ~ Inspiration ~

    "When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature - this very unique to Japan."

    - Tadao Ando

    ~  Writer`s Notes ~

    Walking through my garden, gazing at the lingering late-season flowers, I noticed a magnificent inspiration of butteries of vast colors meandering around a stand of wildflowers. I imagined the flowers standing unbridled, reaching boundless to the sky, as if they were rainbows of promise.  Realizing, there is poetry among nature's gift of butterflies and wildflowers.

    ~ Inspiration ~

     "One of the best gifts you can give a poet is to present them with field guides - to rocks, to stars, to birds, to wildflowers, to trees and bushes, to butterflies, to reptiles and amphibians."

    - Marge Piercy.

    ~  Writer`s Notes ~

    On this first day of Fall I am inspired by Andrew Wyeth's "Autumn". 

    With tree-lined streets set ablaze;  leaves sparking into wild colors, I adore that Fall is the season of the soul and our second spring.

    Realizing that I can not waste anything so precious as this autumnal scenery by staying in the indoors.

    ~ Inspiration ~

    "I search for the realness, the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it... I always want to see the third dimension of something... I want to come alive with the object."

    ~ Writer's Thoughts ~
    As writers, we prefer our souls to be broken and dark. For this write I felt as if I was buried in a vast dreadful pit full of unspeakable mysteries, feeling torn between my poetic ambitions and the fervor for my exquisitely sensual muse.

    ~ Inspiration ~

    I recently read a phrase that the eye in the dark maintained its unblinking vigilance. Inspiring perfectly the genesis of this poem.

    " She will blaze through you like a gypsy wildfire. Igniting your soul and dancing in its flames. And when she is gone, the smell of her smoke will be the only thing left to soothe you."
