I took my heart to the forest,
And felt its strong embrace
As the winter snow glistened
Softly falling upon my face
I was a lost wanderer
Lonely and alone
Until the forest found me
And guided me back home
The trees conversed together
Gently whispering my name
And when I really listened
Something within me changed
I took my heart to the forest
And with each passing sound
I realised I was never lost
The moment I was found
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
Just a little poetry in honor of the new month, and the coming of my favourite season… I actually had a request for more posts like this, so I am really glad to share more of my work. 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!
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!
float on paper wings
carried by the wind
paint the sky
as the heart flies
what could be
what should be
what would be
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!
“Night is always darker before the dawn
and life is the same, the hard times will
pass, every thing will get better and
sun will shine brighter than ever.”
During a time like this, it can be difficult to see the light in the struggle, and negativity seems to surround us in the aftermath of COVID-19… Fear continues to grow, and so many people are left desperate for relief as the impact becomes more widespread.
It is easy to feel consumed in this darkness, but it is our own decision how we are going to react to it. There is still so much to be thankful for, and we must keep these things close to heart despite the hardships. Things will not stay this way forever, and there is always sunshine behind the storm. Remember Ernest Hemingway’s words and know that hope is never lost. It may take some time to get back up, but when we do, we will be stronger than we ever were before!
I just wanted to share this inspiring poem because it is so relevant to what we are all going through right now. I hope that this reflection was moving or gave you a new perspective as it did for me… Feel free to share your own poems or quotes in the comments section, and I hope that you have a great rest of the week!
I have awaited your arrival since the start of September.
Upon your return, you bring soft hues
that warm my soul through the chill of October.
There is so much to tell you, and a lot on my mind.
The leaves are falling as am I.
Acoustics drift through the silence
as cider steams from my hand.
On the porch, I have been waiting for you.
Hello, my old friend.
Just a little bit of free verse this morning to welcome my favorite season… What are your thoughts on Autumn? Did you enjoy this post? Happy Fall!
“They keep saying that beautiful is something a girl needs to be.
But honestly? Forget that. Don’t be beautiful.
Be angry, be intelligent, be witty, be klutzy, be interesting,
be funny, be adventurous, be crazy, be talented-
there is an eternity of other things
to be other than beautiful.
And what is beautiful anyway
but a set of letters strung together to make a word?
Be your own definition of amazing, always.
That is so much more important than anything beautiful, ever.”
I spent my day…
strolling through the heart of town
exploring new flavors at a local cuisine
shopping around gift-shops
taking short breaks from the summer heat
keeping coconut refreshments close at hand
letting the blissful sun stroke my skin with every gentle ray
I spent my day
strolling through the heart of this beautiful town…
sipping on tea in the middle of May
enjoying the sweet reminisce
and allowing recollections of melancholy days
to dissolve in the laughter of bliss
thoughts had been brewing
while life continued at a fast pace
and stories were certainly worth sharing
to a missed and familiar face
I was able to meet up with a good friend for lunch last week, and it was so nice to catch up after months of separation. This amazing vocalist, Sofia Caterina, has released another song after receiving over 80,000 streams of last year’s hit, Velvet. I encourage you to go check out her newest single, Walk Away, and share it with as many people as you can. It is NOW AVAILABLE to stream on all major music platforms, so go give it a listen!
What have you been up to lately? Do you have any big plans coming up this summer? What did you think of her song?

That’s right. I am dabbing in this ballet photo shoot (more to come) to celebrate my amazing experience with blogging and the evolution of Maysa Rose from its birth in 2013! I never thought so many people would genuinely care about all of the random thoughts that I document on this public diary, so I am absolutely astounded with its growth especially within the last year. This space gives me so much joy, and I am incredibly thankful for this site and everyone who reads it!
I began Maysa Rose back in 2013 as a highly talkative fifth grader with an ink pen who filled entire notebooks with stories and poems. My dad recognized this budding passion for writing and he suggested that I begin a blog so that my words could actually be read. I jumped at the opportunity, and I really kept up with blogging before I practically neglected it about a year or two later. After awhile, I decided to pick it back up again, but I didn’t want to start where I left off. I completely redesigned my site and actually deleted all of my old posts to get a clean slate. I started posting very frequently, and I really began to find joy in writing again. Blogging has been my absolute obsession ever since!
I don’t even know where to begin; being the author of Maysa Rose has been such an amazing experience, and it has significantly changed my life for the better. My writing has matured so much through the years, and I have met so many amazing people who continue to inspire me every day. This site is filled with so much positive energy, and the encouragement has really helped me through life’s unpredictable moments. Sometimes, all it takes is ONE positive comment to turn the entire day around, and a couple bloggers have written such beautiful words that I still remember to this very day! I actually cannot recall any offensive or negative comments, so I am very blessed for that. I never imagined that Maysa Rose would grow as much as it has, and I am so thankful for this opportunity to share my passion with the world. Thank you all so much for everything, and I cannot wait to see where this goes from here!!
