The Empty Nest bajezen


Nature tells a story with her vibrant colours
The glorious sunset sets the mood for reunited lovers
The change in  seasons  ushers in an orange glow
Autumn  welcomes playful moments in pumpkin patches
A nature lover’s paradise, a chance for family bonding
Brown and golden leaves fall, a kaleidoscope of colours
A shedding of the old, teaching us the art of letting go of what no longer serves us.

The Empty Nest bajezen


surreal bajezen

The red or the blue pill which will you choose
Down the rabbit hole
 Surreal, a mix of fantasy and reality
Imagination stretched, everything is within in the realm of possibility
Animated, suspended it plays out like a movie
The conscious and the unconscious married
Opposite and yet in harmony 
The mind is so powerful it can take you wherever you want to go
Turn your lows into highs and your highs into lows
Is this a dream or reality?
Did I just wake up or am I still asleep?

The Empty Nest bajezen


identity bajezen

Nothing on this earthly realm defines your true  identity
Not your skin colour, your car, your house or this sack of flesh and bones that is your body
You and you alone determine how you navigate this journey
The soul is the essence, the eternal presence, the captain of your ship
Don’t let your circumstances destroy your inner peace
The labels, the judgements will never define real me
A dynamic spirit, fluid never static

Embracing the struggle  
Flaws and all
Everything and nothing all at once
The bits and pieces of crazy come together to create a masterpiece
Who am I? That is entirely up to me
Constantly in evolution

Life isn’t about finding yourself . Life is about creating yourself .

trademark bajezen

A patchwork of possibilities
Created by the fabric of the divine
Registered at birth
The picture of innocence
A bright spark, anointed with love
We all have that special something
A trademark, an energy, a vibe
What is your brand?
How do you approach life?
Is it a negative or positive
Do you promote harmony or strife?
Appreciate the gift you have been given
Every day may not be sunny but you can find something good in every day
Give good karma, make unforgettable memories
Leave your mark on this world, a legacy 
Big, luminous, bold and unique 

On your own terms, in your own way.

The Daily Prompt : Cacophony

cacophony bajezen

Cacophony, a word that sounds quite foreign to me 
Like something that should be used in a Shakespearean tragedy 
Or maybe they thought of how I sound when I try to sign on  key 
I have absolutely no melody 
Today was certainly an English lesson for me 
It brought to mind the annoying next door neighbour and her extra loud radio

Her chanting yes chanting, like she is performing some ancient ritualistic ceremony

And construction noises when I am trying to sleep 
A bark, a bang a note off-key. 
The perfect example of an annoyance to me 
Now I finally have a word to describe it: cacophony 
Sounds quite poetic. Thank you, Daily, Prompt.

The Daily Prompt Enlighten

enlighten bajezen

The lights are on
But many are still blind
The eyes are eternally deceiving
You have to open your mind
To the floodgates of possibilities
Question, challenge, probe
Create your own truth not the one ”they” tell you exists
Book sense isn’t the totality
All that we are taught seems to based on some lie with a twist
Third eye chakra balanced
Elevate your subconscious
Take yourself to magical places
Ascend to higher heights, have a party with the divine
Wake up
Your soul is waiting to be ignited
Stop seeking
Be still, look inward and embrace every little piece of the puzzle that you find
A spiritual awakening
Become enlightened.

Release The Past

release bajezen

Always the strong one
Put on a brave face
Afraid the world will take advantage of your vulnerability
Constantly playing in the muddy waters of the past
Drowning in negativity
Swallow the pills to numb the pain
Ignore the wounds until they fester

Pretend, deny, repeat
The monsters looming becoming bigger threatening to swallow you up
Never the timid ones of childhood
You can’t escape the demons when they live inside your head
Alone in your safe place let the river of tears flow
Scream, let it all out until you are no longer haunted by the echo
Breathe, be in the moment, write it out, shake it off
Walk through the fire, slay the dragon
Release it all
The past is buried and dead.

Take Every Chance : The Daily Prompt Risky


Be brave
No point in playing it safe
Stagnant ? You will die 1000 deaths wondering about what could have happened if you just did it your way
Make life an adventure
It is already inherently risky
Change is a constant
There are absolutely no guarantees
Go ahead, take the gamble
Bet on yourself
Eyes closed, take the dive
The rush will be invigorating, the choice freeing
You may trip, you may fall or conquer it all
You can never predict the result you will get
Trust and believe
Anything is better than living with regret
