As part of my self-learning journey through Medici University, I’ve incorporated Astrid’s A-Z Blog Challenge along with a few lines of amateur poetry (from yours truly) in addition to images I’ve captured off and on campus in raw format.
Medici University is a free, non-accredited university, which focuses on self directed study. MU is a virtual campus but have a physical presence in Second Life. Earlier this year I registered as a creative writing learner and even though I still have a strong passion for SL photography, I’d like to use both areas of study to share 26 ideas, words, and/or images that best describe the jumbled thoughts of this piscean soul.
You can find out more information about Medici University here at the official website.
To find a place among like minded minds, is to leave the shallows of wasted time…
B – Barren
Beauty and sorrow fills the emptiness of a soul who thirsts and longs for love…
Together they built a haven to behold..a testament to camaraderie and ideas so bold!
The past is past, today is a blank slate! Unlimited abundance is yours on a page…
A solemn voice in the garden of my mind to question the illusion of time
Oh death, where is thy sting? Oh grave, where is thy victory?
A time to ponder the shadows of life, a time to exalt its scathing dark side
Change your perspective ‘neath the awnings of home; look to the skies and be not alone!
I – International
Flood the streets of Paris, make way her lover sings! Behold the light enlightened, behold freedom’s offering!
J – Jalopy
Unwanted, unsure, unseen..unassuming, unlawful, unclean.
The beauty of Hawai’i resides in the hearts of her beloved people
L – Linger
Never shall I promise words devoid of love; ever shall I remind you the meaning thereof
M – Mutinee
There will come a day when even the dead will grow hungry
N – Neon
Bright lights in the bright city of fond farewells and swift hellos.
O – Ostrich
Even those who cannot fly, can stand worthy despite the lot that is given to them.
P – Paradigm
One cannot move forward unless he is at peace with his present state of mind
Q – Quell
Suppress even the minute spark of innovation and find that the fire will consume you regardless
R – Rubbish
‘Make do’ said the wicked and slothful servant.
S – Sumptuous
The weight of value so less the cost, taste what is good and gain what was lost
Beyond the open door lies an ending foretold; gallantry, chivalry, stories in bold
Awaken, fair dreamer, make up for lost time! Awaken O kindred spirit, the future is thine!
Worn to the bone, weary in the fight; better to be admired in shadows of the night
My future is wrought with obstacles unknown; the road is paved well, the intentions are shown
X – Xeriscape
The waters glisten and bring life to the barren; gurgling, laughing, hopeful as the Rose of Sharon
To gain in this world is temporal at best; I’d rather my music, to put me at rest
The waters, they listen, they speak in silvery whispers; sharing their secrets with other fair sisters.
