My little «pearl» in Norway

Today’s dose of nature’s own energy.

I can breathe again

from the beauty of the water I let my dark

thoughts float down with the river

they end up in the ocean somewhere

they fade on their journey

I hope I never meet them again

I watch the sky, blue and beautiful, but

sometimes it is dark and powerful.

My feelings running through my veins, fast

and furious. It can be powerful too.

Sometimes it scares me

Sometimes I can reflect

Sometimes I can look back

Sometimes I can look forward

Sometimes I just want to be in the

presence of nature.

Often I dream

Often I don’t want to come back to my life

Often I hope my life is a fairytale in a

horror movie, but my life

is real.

I get some questions about my art:

And YES, it is mine.

I never use pictures from others page or site or free pictures pages…

Every single pencil line, paint strokes and color is mine…

It is my art,©️copyright orkidedatter.

I use a long time on one picture. I paint and draw. I paint and paint again and again and I draw a little bit more.

I use differences methods and tools.

In the end I am satisfied.

In the end I use a method «digitalprint» and on my instagram account @orkidedatter and blog you see digitalprint of my art.

As simple as taking a picture of my art and printing it out and it will last forever.

I wish for a geechee print printer…..but it is much expensive.

So, now you know more about my art and I think I keep some secrets about it tight to my heart…

One day I dream about a gallery show.

And, yes, all my words in my poems are mine too ©️orkidedatter ( if someone wonder)…

I just wanted to tell you❤️

A brush stroke

For every time she picks up the brush and looks at the colors in front of her, her heart will sing a happy song.

When she decides what color she should wear on her coat, her soul will rejoice.

As she lets brush and paint become one, her feelings of pain scream, and one brush stroke reminds her of what was.

She can have bright and happy colors, but still a shadow is thrown over them.

She can choose sad and dark colors and yet a shadow is thrown over them so they become even darker.

She can use the brush quickly with specific coats. Or use the brush gently with light movements.

For each brush stroke there is a feeling.

The more she paints, the more «she» appears in the games of color. Her innermost is reflected in what is painted in front of her.

She shakes her breath trembling and holds up what she paints in front of her. In a moment, a glimpse of the ghosts and a little glimpse of pain, she can see something changing.

She hangs up what she has painted on the wall. Take a few steps back and with admiration in the eye she sees the shadows getting smaller and the colors became clearer.

Can she master to let go…

Can she color over what was with new colors…

Can darkness brighten again…

What colors will she paint on her fragile wings that will learn to fly?

She wipes away some tears, tears falling from the depths of her heart and covering her soul with …

The Dark Prince

She hear you shouts at night and

Your voice is filled with grief.

Her curtain fluttering and

she can feel

your breath

She lift her heand to her heart,

and it`s like drums

 and she can’t

stand still.

Her spirit dances in flames

along with

demons and elves

in the night sky.

She follows you wherever you go

She needs you and admires you, take

her with you.

She’s yours

She has nothing to be afraid of.

You’re not dangerous.

The Dark prince comes closer with his

violent tongue.

You scream her name.

She continues to dance around in sircles.

The wind grabs her soul

 and you grab her heart.

Her spirit stops for a moment.

Need help from the goodness of light,

cherishes for her freedom,

 but she can`t resist your beauty.

Your poisonous heart is like a snake

who wrapped around her

and she can’t breathe.

Please, put an end to her pain.

You laugh and throw off your shadow.

In the flames you grow large and powerful.

She’s lost.

She’s yours

Spirit and soul,

believe and fight

live and die.

Here are Debra’s questions and my answers:

1. What stirs you to write?

I have a mind, a mindset and a brain that works on blasting all the time where words, letters, and lines spin around. My heart and soul are screaming and crying… breaking it all up and I put it togheter in my poems.. then I paint, draw and put my art togheter….I feel so good when I am done. And here I go again…my brain spinning around with words….

I always have with me my pencil and my book to write in. Or I use my phone. Because when my mind spinning I have to put down the words❤️

2. What category does your writing center around? Why?

I am not in a catagory and I will be a writer and poet who have the freedom to do what I want without being stowed.

But mental health are close to my heart if I have to choose…

3. Do you write to heal yourself or others?

Myself.

4. What post touched you so deeply that you felt “everyone needs to read this!”? Link?

https://huguetteantoun.com/2019/05/15/the-last-man-in-this-generation-has-gone/

Huguette, your words❤️

5. Which blogger post made you sincerely cry? Link?

I can’t choose..

If I could put a link to bloggers who make me cry, the list had become long, I am extremely sensitive…. but it is a good cry, if I can put it that way.

6. Which Blogger post made you bust out laughing? Link?

Oh my… Huguette Antoun it is you again…

7. Which Bloggers are your favorites?

Everyone of my bloggers are my favourite. I can’t put one of them on a top…to me we all are winners and with different qualities and writing skills❤️

8. Are you sad if you only get 1 like on a blog?

To me it is not about likes, so no.

I write everything I want to. If you don’t like it – it is ok, maybe you like another thing I write next time or yesterday or tomorrow….😊

9. What do you want your readers to draw from your blogs?

I am so happy when my words speak to my readers and make them feel. Touch their heart and soul. Make them motivated or inspired by my words. Make them reflect and stop for a minute and catch their breath….being in the presence and maybe a little though about «I am not alone»….

And much love and vulnerability and fragility and strenght with all the colors in the wind out towards the endless rainbow…

10. Which Bible verse holds the most meaning to you and why?

I don’t have one, sorry…

11. Since it’s July and HOT, which summer beverage do you prefer?

I love icetea.

“3.2.1 Quote Me” was created by a guy called Rory https://aguycalledbloke.blog

PLEASE NOTE THAT RORY WILL BE RE-BLOGGING YOUR RESPONSES UNLESS YOU WISH FOR HIM TO NOT DO SO 

Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me! As copied from Hilary Post.

1 Thank the person who tagged you.

2 Post two quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day. → Topic is LOVE

3 Select three bloggers to take part in “3.2.1 Quote Me!” → I’m keeping the same topic: LOVE

//

It is so much about love… so it is hard to choose…but,

My first quote is:

«Love me ehen I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it»

This quote is meaning a lot to me because it is something called «in good and bad days» and in the worst days I probably need this most….

«Piglet put his paw on his Winnie the pooh: what is it? asked Winni the Pooh? Nothing said Pigley. Just wanted to show that I’m here if you need me»

These words and the almost invisible action make me cry. When I was a kid and got a little hand on my shoulder, whoever it was, I felt my heart became warm and my soul smile…

A little smile or a nice action can be enough for someone to have a better day. And to show this- it is for free….

Unwritten destiny.

Inferno in her heart

her sacred black rose

of darkness are being colder

inhaling the scent of her essence

under the moon of shaken sadness

she is dancing with her archangel

our bodies getting drunched in

Angels tears from heaven

make her scream your name

in vain across your black eyes

penetrate her soul

her pain are the echoes of dust

you can hear rattle within

with a wolf heart she has been

thrown out to the pack

fighting for life unwritten destiny

in her chapter of love

the unspoken voice in the soulless

wind changing her shadow

her spirit of the darkened path

perhaps she will return leading

the pack…

Ashok’s questions and my answers:

Oh, a very hard question already… well, I struggle a bit with faith to God…

And I struggle a bit with faith to my own ability…

But, I pracice every day to have faith in my own abilities.

When it comes to God… I don’t know..

I am sorry.

2 Do you like the security of a job or freedom and creativity of an entrepreneur?

I always like the security, but after I got sick my freedom and creativity has become more and more importent to me, and Orkidedatter is on her path…

3 Are you more of an indoor or outdoor person?

I am both. I can sit indoor a dark autumn evening and light some candles and do what I want.

I can be outdoor and do meditation or just be in the presence and enjoy nature.

4 What is your favourite pastime?

My art and words.

I love to read too, or I can see a movie, or maybe I meditate also.

I am the saving kind.

Writing.

No, I don’t think so.

8 Who do you love more : children or pets?

I love children and pets.. I can’t set them up against each other…

9 If you were left alone in a house without internet connectivity, how long do you think, you will last?

Ohh, wow.. well, I am sorry, but I have to say, not for long. I know I will last for one day, because I live deep in the woods and the internet is bad here… sometimes I don’t have internet for a day, so maybe two days…

10 Are you a balanced person? If not, what is the imbalance about?

I am both, but I practice every day. Because when my anxiety gets triggered I can get into imbalance..but, I practice..

and frogs… oh my oh my…I’m freaking out…

11 What would you choose: the promise of a simple healthy life v/s lots of money, with health challenges?

The promise of a simple healthy life.
