To Alex



Alex 37th Bday51

" To Alex"
On this day, August nineteenth, 
The year-nineteen seventy sixth,
You came in this world with a cry, 
Right then, you didn't know why. 

Many people are born on that day
Many are famous or not, in a way,
A lot of them happy, some angry or sad,
Some busy or lazy, or something like that.

Some try to do better, some really don’t care
Some constantly whine that life is not fair.
But you are so different, you always stand out,
And I didn’t need 37 years to find out.

From the very first moment I saw you, I knew
There is no one that would ever compare to you.
You make me so happy, when I feel sad
And nobody ever did it like that.

You hold my hand when I feel I can fall
You listen to all my heartaches, big or small.
And that is all that anyone wants in their life
To find someone like you by their side.

It’s a good thing I’ve found you before,
‘cause there aren’t as many as you anymore.
And I feel lucky beyond compare
That I have someone like you and you care.

I don’t care if you’re perfect or not,
I don't care what everyone else ever thought.
I know were are meant for each other, it is true,
I don’t care, as long as I have YOU.

Sometimes there are no stars in the sky
But I promise you that I will try
To show you every day till I die
That nobody loves you better than I.

Valentine's day inspiration

Reunion 201248


As it turns out working on my Valentine's day projects for the Etsy store has it's risks. I was so engulfed in my work today that I simply couldn't stop. That, and watching The Tudors, helped creating this:



Your grace

I stand before you blind from love,
My blindness –curse or blessing,
I never search for beauty anymore,
Just your lips, your sweet caressing.

For who would find what beauty is,
If Beauty it is only you?
Your love is everlasting, eternity- your kiss,
your heart is pure and true.

‘Cause it is you who lingers in my mind
And lets me not to rest,
And it is you, who masters all my dreams,
But that is why I love you best.

For you have got my heart entangled
in your invisible unbreakable embrace,
You, lovely, irresistible and darling,
You, my merciless embodiment of grace. 

It is  not my first poem in English( not to mention how many I have in Bulgarian); however, it is the very first one in my second language that was just flowing out of me and I didn't have to alter afterward just so I can "fix" the meaning, or the grammar, or just "fix" it in general. Before I was always trying to "translate" the feeling by translating the meaning. There was always something missing. This one felt like what a first poem should feel like. And of course, it is the first one I am sharing with you. 
I meant to save it for Valentine's day for my sweetheart, but I showed it to him today. There shouldn't be a right time to love, right? And I know he will inspire me to write another one for Valentine's day anyway.

This part of my blog was waiting and waiting to be filled. I always wondered what I should start with? How many of you know for example that I have 2 children's books finished, 1 adult book halfway through, one for middleschoolers in the very beginning and one cook book in progress? I'm not even going to talk about the countless poems...
All of this will come to you, little by little. 
I am currently working on the illustrations of one of the children's books and hopefully it will be available in e-book format very soon. 

What inspired YOU today?
