What Matters Most

W

What Matters Most

Shattered, wings clipped, ears still ringing from the fall, I encourage you to let the earth   ground you   and sit up tall; Believe me when I say, that in the eyes of victory,   this setback   will mean nothing at all.

Frayed Ribbons

Frayed Ribbons

Brushing past again, you try to wake emotions   that no longer exist — What once tied us together is a bow long pulled apart.

Fear Failure No More

Fear Failure No More

Calling out the dark, I confront that   haunting voice;   I will fear no more — It's not a mountain to climb, but just a hill to conquer.

Take Me Away

Travelling night train, please, take my last thoughts with you   up into moondust —   Steal them like the blowing wind,   lift away what could not be.

Hold On to Hope

Hold On to Hope

Some will have you believe   that hope is a dangerous kind of currency, But I disagree, to me hope is   a beacon of light that helps us sail the waves      of life.

Colours of Morning

Colours of Morning

A misty curtain hides the colours of morning —   We await the sun,   Soft touch of sunlight   caresses roof’s edge —      Warm pigments blossom

Memento Mori

Memento Mori

I am a pool of memories lingering deep inside, waiting   to be once more explored

Fiery Arrows

Fiery Arrows

Autumn sends its fiery arrows into the late green   treetops high above, Their flames painting yellow, red, orange and gold, until the burning leaves   tumble, and fall.

Just Friends

Just Friends

Every day that passes between us, it gets harder to keep the words from slipping in doubt, I want to repeat them time and time again until my lips wear out,   But, I can not;   for we are only      just friends.

Frozen by your spell I gaze from a distance,   my heart beating fierce —   Bewitched, enchanted, you leave me with   a painted image behind.

My Bio
Hello, and welcome (:

Lady-Yume is the personal account of artist and writer KimberlyJolanda. She is the creator of her own publications that combine imagery and words, like her illustrated art & poetry book, Dreamscape. She shares three visual poetry series online weekly; the Micro Poetry, Haiku and About Love Series. Mostly written in free-form, they are pieces inspired by nature, philosophy, day-to-day thoughts and emotions. Next to poetry, she also enjoys writing Poetic Prose in the shapes of micro fiction and short stories, her works sparked by the many facets of life, and often touched with a hint of fantasy.

On this account you’ll find more of her words; personal favourites from her Visual Poetry series, responses to prompts and contests, and it is also her base as current Founder of the Glory-Be-Project.

If you’d like to get in touch, feel free – she’s always just a note away.

I Dreamed of Christmas

I Dreamed of Christmas

Hello everyone :heart: Today its December 25th, and though most of us will be wrapped up in family gatherings or other wonderful festivities, I wanted to take a moment and extend my warmest of thoughts to all of you who left me comments, faved my work, purchased my books, or have just been plain lovely to talk to.

So, to all: Happy, happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year! It's Christmas Day Another thing I admittedly also enjoy this time round, is being able to (legit
