POETRY: Coastal Cleanse (Heaven on Earth)

Coastal Cleanse (Heaven on Earth)

The beach is full of golden gems,

Sparkling beneath comforting rays,

Whether straight, or if it bends,

It’s caressed by silky waves.

 

The salty air cures troubling thoughts,

Cleanses the soul of all its warts,

Smothers it over, keeps it down,

Dark shadows begin to drown.

 

Take it in and truly consume,

The magic of this private room,

A place that’s shared to an extent,

But, a feeling and vision cannot be lent.

POETRY and PERSONAL POST: Breathless Break

Breathless Break

I see children sliding down a rich green slide,

While a blind boy plays piano with his mother by his side.

There’s buzzing, laughs, screams and cheeps,

As little brown birds hop around at my feet.

 

I feel the rays of golden sun as a breeze,

Swirls lightly around, I see dancing leaves.

As the music escalates, lingering laughs rise,

A pure level of delight, an atmosphere energised.

~ Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been too very long, I must say. Not only have I missed the peaceful feeling of becoming immersed in writing and imagination, I have missed being here, as we support each others passions. I have been busy enjoying a much needed heavenly Summer, while I volunteer, work and see important members of my life. I hope you have all been well!

I am happy to say I am back for 2014! A year for traveling, studying, supporting, growing, exploring, and writing!

I hope you enjoyed my poem, Breathless Break, which was written in my lunchbreak outside, in this magical moment.

 

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Risk in the Abyss

Risk in the Abyss

Leap into the abyss,

Take a risk,

Here’s a chance that cannot be missed.

 

A heart is protected,

Connected,

A soul that has been affected.

 

It started with a kiss,

No resist,

But, now doubt begins to insist.

 

Fear and thoughts can wreck it,

Infected,

Expose your faults like you’re naked.

 

Don’t resist happiness,

Take a risk,

Let them help you rid of the mess.

 

By Jody Dontje

~ Don’t let fears steal away happiness.

 

 

PERSONAL POST & POETRY: Thank-you!

This post is dedicated to all the supporters I have already gained. It means so much to have other passionate beings sharing their passions with me, and encouraging me to pursue my dreams. So I now say to you all,

Thank-you

I always desired to start a site,

But it was constantly an ‘I might’;

Life is so busy, it’s hard to make time,

To sit down and create a much loved rhyme.

 

Passion flowing deep inside,

It seemed to only deeply reside,

No time to let the ideas out,

Let my growing desire shout.

 

But now, finally, here we are,

The amount of support surprises me by far,

I appreciate each and every one of you,

And I truly seek to support you too.

 

Lets grow together as passionate beings,

Support each other as we keep achieving,

Like posts, comment, and seek to inspire,

Show the world our voice as one big choir!

 

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Running Out of Time!

Running Out of Time!

Tick, tock,

Tick, tock,

There is someone inside,

Where do I hide?

 

Tick, tock,

Tick, tock,

They might have a knife,

My life is in strife!

 

Click, Plock,

Click, Plock,

I can hear searching hands,

Do I have a chance?

 

Click, plock,

Click, plock,

I hide under the draw,

On the vibrating floor.

 

Swish, swosh,

Swish, swosh,

They knocked over a glass,

And now they’ve walked past…

 

Giggle, gasp,

Giggle, gasp,

It is just dad,

Whoops!

 

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Summer

Summer

A light buzzing,

A slight breeze,

Thriving gardens,

Sundrenched trees.

 

A road-trip out,

And we’re at the beach.

Golden specks,

Memories.

~ Currently in Australia, we can feel the golden season peaking through, glorious!

What is your favourite season?

Simply Beach

Beautiful air,
Salty hair,
Ocean waves,
Sandy caves.

~ She told me that “love is happiness, happiness is the beach, and the beach is my love…”

PERSONAL POST: Developing Writer

Hi writing and education enthusiasts!

It had come to my attention that I had yet to publish a personal post about myself as a developing writer. So here is some background information about me and my passions!

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education, and am undergoing a Writing for Children and Young Adult course as one of my many valued courses that the University has available. This course gave me the extra push to finally start this site, and I am proud to announce that I am extremely excited, to build relationships with you all and share my progress as a writer and educator.

I have a novel in progress, a dream to start and write a non-fiction in future, numerous educational short stories in progress, song lyrics and music created, and I spoil myself with time set aside to create a range of poetry.

Do you sometimes find it hard to set aside time from your busy lifestyle to nurture your writing passion? Trust me, you are not the only one. However, it is important we never give up on this passion. I hope that this site will encourage you all to find the time, and I look forward to hearing from you all!

Sincerely Jody

~ Dream big, strive for more and never give up!

POETRY: Broken

Broken

A broken vase, a fallen chair,

A broken heart, betrayal, despair.

 

A trust built like the tallest wall,

And now the bricks lay on the floor.

 

Salty tears, a broken plate,

Shattered trust, betrayal, hate.
