西村玲子さん @nishimurareiko9063 の展覧会へ。ご友人の酒井さんに早くからご案内いただき、愉しみにしていたこの日。西村さんの描かれるおしゃれで自由な地平に、たっぷり遊ばせていただく。
Yesterday, I visited an exhibition by one of the leading illustrators in Japan, Reiko Nishimura @nishimurareiko9063 . Her life style and fashion writing inspire lots of Japanese ladies.
She simply uses cartridge paper and coloured pancils. The each lines she drew have her own way of the strength and the balance, I think. I respect her drawings.
Thank you for reading my poem! I post new honest poems every day. Please check out my anthology of poems which is currently on sale for 25% off on Amazon (link in bio!)

They ain't among us, they ARE us and they've been here since we were shit out of the ocean. They've taken divergent paths, some toward the light, others toward the darkness - most straddle the gray area in between. It's easier to not take responsibility by not choosin' a side but that's the coward's play and that costs more lives than either the dark or the light. Gotta stand for somethin' or die for nothin' but at some point you gotta choose while the choice is still yours and if you're waitin' for a sign from God, he's on the 4th floor in Bellevue waitin' for his next dosage, babblin' some nonsense about wormholes and the incongruity of fate - and waitin' for a sign from you - A.Flo
сердце на асфальте
выхожу за порог-
и уже начинаю
листать твои фото.
очередь в кафе,
а я всё жую
на своих губах
стрелки на часах
пальцы в ритме трека..
кто бы мне сказал,
что можно вот так
Never been in with the crowds. A misfit full of passion not interested to fit in any boxes. Each day is beautiful with its complicated entanglements. Each battle is going to leave a scar, get ready for the front line, you were made to be a leader. #writer#passion#loveisaverb#Godislove
"I don't know what holds me still, and prevent me from jumping out there for my own freedom. As much as anyone wants to become my home, I always find myself keeping a bag of mine, just in case I need to leave. Or maybe I was just waiting for the right reason to.
The idea of life is very different to me now. I couldn't see myself in 10 years - getting older and still doing the same thing, only to be richer or stable maybe - and feel happy about it.
Some people said, "Eventually everything will feel just the same.", but I believe it was more to the reflection of their lives, and never the truth of life.
Just as how some of us turn off the light at 10pm to sleep and call it a night everyday, some of us make peace with acceptance and stability, and called it a life.
Yet there are some like us, who turn off the light at 8pm, only so we could see the stars and the moon till 2am, or sometimes to point our lens to capture the sunrise, without even calling it a night.
There are people like us, who rides the wave of time and uncertainties, and call it alive."
"I once asked an internationally well known photographer about how he took so many great pictures of the skies - sunrise, sunset, and even the night stars - with such a simple editing."
"And? His answer?"
"He asked me what time did I wake up, eat dinner, and sleep. He said, "The magical colors of sky happened at the certain times of the day. If you live and do your things according the time set by most people do nowadays, you will certainly miss the greatest sky of all your life.""
"Ah. That's true and well...deep."
"Lol. Yeah. The best things happened at different times, and we can't get it by not being different or seeing them differently I guess."

The greatest help you can give a person is to wake them up, to remind them of who they really are and what they are capable of doing. There are no mistakes, only steps to greater truths.
