Bought a sketchpad
Then i draw sleeping cats
Paint the colors of spring
Dance with the winds
And listen to the rustle of leaves
As i sing
Against the soft gleam of sunlight
Cheerfully butterflies take their flight
Glanced at my watch
Suddenly the time stops
I closed my eyes
It is in the hum of bees
the way the grass sways
In the cold breeze
That i remember those memories,
laughters and giggles
Of a little girl in her dress
Then catches fireflies in the lush
It was vivid
A dream like image
where the edges almost fade
Brought to life
In each stroke of a brush
“Not all of us can do great things.But we can do small things with great love.”
At this age, I have been brought to the ups and downs of my life. I felt like there is a hole in my heart that I needed to fill. Like a missing part of who I am. I struggled real hard to find myself, I did so many things, I engage my self in doing activities in school, buy things others do, become an alien in front of a mirror. The more I do these things, the more I am becoming less myself.
Then one day I realize, I don’t need to look now where to find that missing piece. It is closer than I thought. A pen and paper are what I need and then I found this.
My passion for writing brought me to a wonderful journey of discovery.
I know now, that I don’t need to impress anyone, I don’t need to follow the trends and be someone I’m not. And I told myself ” their opinion should remain their opinion, who I am is not relative to what they want me to be”.
This blog is formed out of my love for writing, the thing that my heart seeks and where my soul will forever feel at ease.
Writing is home and will always be.
Thank you for reading. ❤
Much love, Rio Abby
Silent star, it is as if I understand your wistful conversation. The verbs with which you shape your sentences entrance my heart so. I hear the yearning in the accented syllables of your speech, in the trill of your r’s, in your redolent display much like a jewel in the darkened sky – you […]

Today, breath and appreciate the beauty around you.
Isn’t wonderful to feel the warm of sunshine on your skin?
The blow of winds in your face?
Close your eyes and listen to the birds chirping aren’t they happy?
Open your eyes and look at the trees, lifting their branches high
The vast sky is smiling at you
Hear the laughters of children around
Or soft words from old couples
Look at lovers just strolling by
Families sharing a cup of tea in a shade
Eating biscuits that they’ve made
Whatever you do
Wherever you are
Take time to listen, see and hear
All the wonderful blessings here and there
Maybe a phone call from a friend
A pat on the shoulder to know they care
Or simple acts of kindness from a stranger
All these things are sent from above
Know that you are loved
He takes care of you
Always on your side.
