we meet again

novemberhello september

i had been awaiting

your return to

bring back the season that

my heart perpetually yearns

and here we meet again

make your visit true

take the world as your canvas

and paint it brand new

caught in the midst

of the vibrant arrays

i cant help but fall for

your crisp autumn days

…………

If there are any other posts that you would like to see, please don’t hesitate to drop them in the comments section. In the meantime, I hope you guys have a great month, and thanks for reading!

IMG_1413Hello!

It has been awhile since my last post, and I cannot believe how fast time has flown. The past two weeks have honestly been quite an adjustment as I tried get back into a routine, but I think I have figured things out now… As busy as I was, I have to admit that I really did miss blogging, so it is nice to be writing again.

My college experience has been pretty great so far, and I am so happy with my decision to attend this university. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, but I will say that the pandemic is really wearing on me… It’s unfortunate that my freshman year had to be filled with mandatory mask policies, social distancing orders, and hesitation to study in any of the common areas. I know this will all go away soon, but things are a little odd right now. I really love my classes though, and I am excited to continue this semester.

I also want to thank everyone for your continuous support despite of my lack of activity because it really means a lot. I hope that you are all doing well, and I am so glad to be back. Until next time!

What’s New?

updates

This summer is swiftly coming to a close, and my college adventure is about to begin… Monday marks the first day of classes, so things are about to get busy! As much as I am dreading the stress, I am definitely ready to get back into a routine… This semester, I decided to take half of my classes online and the other half in person because of Covid-19 which is not what I had initially intended, but I am still looking forward to it! I will be taking Statistics, Honors Microeconomics, Psychology, and World History in pursuit of a degree in Marketing. I am excited to see what this semester has in store, and I will be sure to keep you posted on my college experience. I also wanted to let you know…

The blog is now on Instagram!

I had been considering this for awhile, but I decided to actually make it happen! The official Instagram of Maysa Rose will enclose simple thoughts, poetry, and short highlights from the blog that are especially meaningful to me. Don’t miss out! Go follow @maysaroseblog if you haven’t already!

Theme Change…

You may have also noticed a site layout change, and several things have been updated including the menu and sidebar. I really love this new theme! What do you guys think?

Talk to me:

Lastly, I wanted to know what kinds of posts that you guys would like to see more of on here… If you have any input, suggestions, or special requests, please drop them in the comments because I would love to hear from you. Happy Thursday!

picnic with you

picnic

a cardinal perches

on branches overgrown

critiquing the moves

of kings and queens below

the chessboard empties

as knights gallop away

taking another loss

until a rematch someday

strolling down a trail

natures sings its tune

concluding a perfect

picnic with you


Just reminiscing on a recent adventure of mine… I love this song too, so I thought I would attach it as well. I also want to know: Do you guys want to see full playlist posts on here again? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments, and I hope you enjoyed this!

-until tomorrow-

sunset

I spent two weeks up in the mountains letting my mind run free as heavy thoughts vanished beyond the horizon. I found myself drifting with the clouds forgetting everything as I became lost in their ethereal glow… Poetic thoughts began cascading through my mind, and I embraced them despite the occasional absence of paper. As the last ray of sunlight gently caressed the earth, I smiled as it kissed me goodbye and felt comforted by the remnants of such a beautiful day. I watched it fade against the pastel sky and paint a silhouette of the distant mountains. Soon, the warm hues began to dissolve, and the stars began to shine…

I sighed, “until tomorrow”


Already missing this, grandma… Thank you so much for having us over, and I will see you again soon. Love you!

A Novel

book

Writing.

Isn’t it amazing how simple words on a page can transport you to another place in time… how colorless sentences fuse together to create a world so vivid right before your eyes? Page after page, the imagination runs free and pulls you into a new reality.


This summer, I have spent my free time indulging in lots of great books… Some of you may know that I have been wanting to write my own novel for awhile. I had an idea spark about two years ago that I never revisited, but I remembered it recently as I was trying to fall asleep one night. This time, an entire scene flashed through my mind, so I quickly grabbed a pen and recorded as many details as I could in a small journal. Ideas continued to flow ever since, and they have inspired me to finally begin plotting. It will be years, of course, before its publication, and I know that I wont have much time once school starts back up. No matter when or if this book is ever released, I really hope see my own novel on a shelf someday somewhere…

Do you have any advice? Have you published or aspire to publish a book some day too? I would love to hear from you, and thanks for reading!

secret messages

sky

unspoken thoughts

float on paper wings

carried by the wind

softly glowing

secret messages

paint the sky

embers burn

as the heart flies

what could be

what should be

what would be

what is

you will never know

writing secret messages


Did you enjoy this? What are your thoughts? Would you like to see more poetry? Thanks for reading!

4th of July, 2020

july4

Hola,

I hope you guys had a fantastic 4th of July!

The Fourth is my family’s biggest celebration, and we typically host a huge party with friends and neighbors. This year was quite different, however, but we still had a great time! Although the pandemic took away our party, it did not take away our annual firework show… Every year, neighbors contribute to a massive firework pile that never fails to blow me away (literally).

There is something special about that burst of color against the night sky, and I look forward to it every single year. As firecrackers, sparklers, and fireworks filled the night, all of my worries kind of faded away, and I was able to truly live in the moment. I especially needed that this year, so it was awesome! How did you celebrate?

Happy Independence Day 2020!

trapped thoughts

writing

Wow, it’s been quite awhile since I actually sat down to write. To be honest, it was difficult for me to find the words to say with everything going on, and my creativity was almost non existent as I became stuck in what felt like an endless time-loop. Life was (and still is) like reliving the exact same day over-and-over again… I wake up staring at the same wall wondering how I am going to spend yet another twenty-four hours in quarantine. Whenever I would try to write, my thoughts would remain trapped, and the only thing that I could do was stare at a blank screen and blinking cursor until finally deciding to walk away. Inspiration faded, and writer’s block had inevitably taken over.

Instead of fighting it, I decided to accept it and step away for awhile. I did not want my passion for writing to diminish completely by forcing words down, so I waited. And waited. Until eventually, they began flowing again…

I have not forgotten about you guys, and I am going to try to become more active on this space. I love writing, and I am looking forward to many more posts to come. I hope that you are all doing well, and I would love to hear from you in the comments! It has been so long!

Has anything new or exciting happened recently? What have you been up to? Has quarantine been giving you writer’s block as well? How do you cope with it? Thanks for reading!

Memorial Day 2020

memorialday

Take time to reflect on all of the men and women that were lost while serving this amazing country… Their sacrifice will never be forgotten, and they will forever be revered for their bravery and service. They are our protectors… our heroes… and they deserve our deepest respects. May their families and friends be at peace today, and may they find comfort in their remembrance.

Happy Memorial Day 2020!
