Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Recluse

 

It is not what I intended,

But it’s what the moment

Calls for.

 

I have great reverence

For the higher laws;

I humbly surrender myself

In acceptance

To this moment of recluse.

With epenness and faith,

I trust the will

Of the greater power.

 

I will come out

From this passage

Equally enriched,

Like my efflorescence

Amid the bunch.

  2. jeques,

    we need some open-ended spaces. we need some blank repose. it helps to let us think clearer and make us better. i myself, has been to that two month’s worth of absence from the blogging pages. i just try to collect another tresure trove of inspirations. i just let myself immersed and unhurried.

    half the time i did read some of your poems, and they are really the blossoming of your written art. keep up and if the feeling of recluse engulfs you again. let it be. you never know how much you can draw inspirations with it.

    best of times,
    marvin

  3. Marvin,

    I’ve always looked forward to hear from you. For my part, I’ve also been unusually inactive lately, keeping myself away from sites I regularly visit for the reason that I need to sustain this momentum. My writing voice is at its clearest this past few months after I temporily put my paintings on hold. It always happen like that and I’m glad that my produce in both is bountiful.

    Being a recluse is not my choice but is necessary and I’ve been one for almost a year now after I started painting February of last year. There’s that part in me that wanted to be around people but the whole year that was put me in a situation that kept me home, and I’m glad I did looking at my accomplishments hangged on the walls and my rich produce in writing.

    My coming home this month for a 2 months vacation is a well anticipated breather before I immerse myself again to another rounds of painting for my next collection.

    I have tested my patience and proven myself virtuous – something I could always go back and be proud of what I did.

    Indeed we could grow and become the best we could be around other people, but it feels even better to blossom within ourselves without the pressure from the outside, and we owe ourselves that at least one time in life.

    I am at peace with myself.

    Looking forward for your new writings.

    I wish you well.

    ~ Jeques
