Blue Sky

It’s my first time join in weeklyprompt, Weekly Prompt – Colour Challenge Blue

Taken by me

The first thing that came to my mind when I heard the word blue is sky. Well, sometimes it gets cloudy and stormy. But when the sky is clear and blue, it could be comforting for some reasons.

Whenever I have a bad day, I like to look up at the sky. Just sat down and tilt my head up, admiring the nature. It’s been one of my favorite healing therapy.

3 Things I Do to Stay Sane During Pandemic

It’s been almost 2 years since the pandemic started. We all have our own way to cope with the situation. For me, at least I discovered 3 interesting things that help me stay sane during the pandemic.

  • Appreciate Nature

After office hours, if the weather was nice, I usually went to a beach near my office. Me and my co-worker like to sit there and talk about our day at work there. Sometimes, we’re simply enjoy the view. It has been our safe haven after such a hectic day. I found it very relaxing, to here the waves sound at the shore or just sitting there and look at the sky, appreciating the nature.

  • Reach Out to Some Old Friends

We have been through hell for these past two years. Well, some might have it easier, but most of us have to fight harder just to stay alive. There’s always a news about deaths due to covid everyday. Some of them were my friends families or their colleagues. I tried to reach out to them and simply asking about how they’re doing. Even though we haven’t talked in ages. I know it doesn’t mean much, but I hope it could comfort them somehow.

  • Writing

I love writing diaries since my school days. Most of it was just ranting about my daily life. But, since the lockdowns couples months ago, I’ve become more fond of expressing myself through poetry. Some of it sounds cheesy and sucks, so I only posted the best (according to me lol). It helps me calm my chaotic mind and stay sane during the pandemic.

I hope you also found something that can help you cope with your current situation.

Here’s a bonus sunset picture ✨

Chasing The Night

Eugi is the host for this prompt. I’m gonna write a poem as usual. I don’t know, I think it’s easier for me to write a response to any prompt with a poetry. Let me know what do you think about it in the comment section below. Thank you and hope you enjoy 🙂

Picture from Eugi’s Prompt

Chasing the Night

Wheeling around the moon

Round and round we go

You, me and the wheel

Chasing the night

Make friends with the scary monsters

Embrace our fears

No more running from the past

But wheeling together to the future

Let’s Bloom Together

I feel so strange lately. Sometimes I woke up feeling like I could conquer the world, then the other times I thought the world would be better off without me in it.

Sometimes I have too much energy overflowing in my vein, and luckily I could finished some important tasks in office. But, the other times I felt empty and just wanna lay down and stared blankly at my ceiling.

Sometimes I felt it was really nice to be alive and well, and it gave off some positive vibes to other people too. But, the other times all I have was this big bad black negative balls inside my mind, and I became rather rude to people around me.

At the end of the day, I keep wondering, “Why did I do that? What the heck is wrong with me? It would be better if I just shut my mouth at that time. Why should I ever say that?”

You know, those things like we’ve said one second ago and then regret it in the next second. In my case, I’d be drownimg myself in self-blaming.

Well, maybe I’m just an overthinker. But, it’s really hard to change it when it became your daily routine.

You know, they said, “Old habits die hard.” So maybe I had to picked up a new habit to change my life cycle.

April has come to an end. It’s blooming season. Let’s bloom together.

2021, here I come

No matter how small it was, let’s celebrate our accomplishment in 2020.

Twenty twenty had been tough

It took a lot of things

Yet also gave so many lessons

It’s okay if all you did in 2020 was breathing

At least you survive

Now, another year has come

Another challenging year

It might not gonna get easier

But, if we can made it through 2020

We can conquer 2021 as well

2021, here I come.

Home Sweet Home – Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

“Home is the place where someone is thinking about you.” – Jiraiya (Naruto, 1999)

Should be a safe haven
Should be a place to feel reassured
Should be a comfort zone

However

Mine is a superficial one
Mine is a broken one
Mine is a war zone

Maybe

That's why I'm feeling strayed
That's why I'm yearning desperately
That's why I'm searching hopelessly

For my kind of 'Home Sweet Home'.

Love Like A Tree – Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

In response to Eugi’s weekly prompt, I’m gonna write a piece about tree once again.

In the previous post, I viewed myself as the tree itself, meanwhile I’ll write about how love should be like a tree.

This piece was inspired by the song ‘Never Break‘ by John Legend.

You can check out my previous post here.

Enjoy!

Love Like A Tree

Rooted in one place

For eternity

As its grow higher

And higher

The wind’s blow

Will become stronger

Thunder and storm

Will be more frightening

Yet it will never break

For its foundation was solid

Built on the ground

Nourished with compassion

Nurture with gentle care

Thus the love

Will sprout formidably

Wish of a Tree

I’m gonna submit a piece for another picture prompt held by Glen.

For these past weeks, I was unable to write a proper post, not even one. And it frustrates me even more because I have so many ideas in my head, yet I couldn’t pour it out appropriately.

Just like the tree on the picture below, it felt like I was chained down and trapped inside an infinite abyss.

Thank you, Glen. This wonderful picture truly evokes my spirit back.

So, this is the post for the last day of August. I hope I could write more in September.

Wish of a Tree

I dreamt of reaching the sky

Yearned for a pair of wings

Wished to fly freely

Like those birds

Nested on my branches

Sadly, I was made to be grounded

My roots run deeply in the soil

 

I dreamt of reaching the sky

Wondered how it feels like to touch the stars

I heard that the world is vast and beyond

How does it feel to liberally roaming around?

What a pity!

I couldn’t even walk on earth

For my legs have been chained down by mother nature

When the Signal Went Off

When the signal went off, of course I’m upset. Being in quarantine for months, I’ve became quite an internet addict. I can’t go on a day without internet connection.

When the signal went off, I thought I’m going nuts. I can’t upload an instagram story or update a tweet. Can’t even open my facebook account or simply chatting with my online friends. Let alone fangirling on V live or read webtoons.

When the signal went off, I might really gonna be crazy. I know that humans are social creatures, but I kinda forgot how to interact ‘real’ people.

When the signal went off, maybe it’s a sign. I should put my phone away for a moment and start socialize in real life.

 

 

P.S: V Live, sometimes referred to as V App, is a South Korean live video streaming service that allows celebrities based in the country to broadcast live videos on the internet and live chat with fans. Streaming is available online or on Android and iOS mobile devices, with replays formerly available on PC. Source:Wikipedia
