I’ve been thinking about you for a few weeks, without really knowing where to start or how to introduce myself. I’ve always had a thing for red heads, but there were something about your eyes that really drew me towards your profile. And after reading it, I was even more certain that you and I would be a good match.
I have a rather boring 9 to 5 work, so my morning usually consists of having a cup of freshly brewed coffee from a high quality coffee machine and reading the horoscope. I am born 3rd of April which makes me an Aries, and according to my horoscope; today is the day I should take the opportunity to change my life and start on a new course. I believed you are that course.
I see that you are born 1st of December and that you are born in the sign of Sagittarius. Both our star sign represent fire. In other words, explosive passion. Here are some other reasons why I think the two of us would be awesome together.
1. I also love being outdoors, and there are so many things that we can do together there. Bush walking and skiing in the mountain can both be finished off with some physical activity in the beautiful scenery. I do not know about you, but my genitals don’t mind a little bit of cold before entering the hot pools.
2. Spending money is also my number one priority and it would make me oh so happy to have someone to spend them on. Whatever floats you boat (literally)! Clothes and accessories or luxurious hotels in fabulous cities; you can count on my wallet to take care of it all.
3. Older men always falls for younger women, and vice versa. There is absolutely noting perverse about it! All it takes is a little bit love (see physical activities).
Please don’t hesitate to contact me. Obviously, I would love to hear for you sooner rather that later.
Something about the smell. Something about the touch. Something about the sound. Something about the feeling that always creeps up every time you are near.
My hands on the wall touching your hands. My naked feet on the cold linoleum walking where your feet have been walking too. Brushing my teeth in front of the same mirror you showed me how to brush them properly. Combing through my hair with the same brush you used on your hair. I toss and turn whenever I sleep where you used to dream of distant memories. Waking up to the same view.
I now you are there. Following me. Watching me. Singing a lullaby about a troll and her eleven children tied up by their tails…
With a baby who only naps for a maximum of forty minutes, I am surprised that I managed to write a poem everyday for two weeks. And I didn’t feel any lack of creativity with such a short timeframe to work within. Rather the opposite actually. I think I work best under pressure… I really enjoyed the challenge and I will definitely join again for next year. Even though I don’t think every poem I wrote turned at as good as it could have been with a bit more time, I am extremely happy with the result. Next year I might even join the whole month.
Conclusion; highly recommended for anyone interested in writing and who would like to challenge their creativity.
“Today, I challenge you to write a pantun.”
The newly laid asphalt still smells
Diesel in the tank takes me all the way
Home is where I feel like being alone
Sleeping birds no longer sleep in their nest
The water travels slowly through
Pipes are rusting after several
Years have thought me to never
Trust is something that left long ago
This challenge worried me a little, as I’ve never heard of pantun before. Hopefully I managed to get something half descent/correct.

The Eyes of Little Me
I love you!
Where did you go?
Here is my Mummy
I love you!
Here is my Mummy
I love you!
You are not Mummy.
You look funny.
Here is my Mummy!
I love you
“…write a poem consisting entirely of things you’d like to say, but never would…”
not the perfect friend.
I have you best interest at heart.
He does not.
I was not the first.
Definitely not the last.
You deserve better
than both of us.
“…what you see on your walk, and incorporate these notes into your poem.”
Night life is entering
Bright lights shining
Blue, orange and yellow
Red, purple and green
Coming towards us
Waking us from our sleep
Pass the parcel
Drinks, pills, dust
No one cares
We’re all going home anyway
“Today I challenge you to write a tanka”
A Wonderful Life
You are so lovely;
sparkling, shining like a star.
Can I go completely blind
if I can not see yellow?
Do you remember
when we first met each other
Hello, goodbye. Hug and kiss.
Plastic bottles and spray cans
why are they all so damn blue?
I truly believe
that you fit me perfectly.
How pleasant it is to love.
Sometimes I wonder what if
red no longer existed?
Like a fairytale
we sing with the birds of spring.
Tuned into their melody.
Have you ever stopped to think
black and white are all the same?
