It's time...

By Maria Mak - Sut... on July 9, 2014 - 5:06pm

It's time to pick up my suitcase and be a vagabond...

So close yet so far.

Out of focus ,

Estrayed,

Lost in the clouds of my high nine,

Attainable 

Or unattainable , 

Disturbed ,

Or unInterrupted ,

Getting foggier and foggier,

Fading away in the waves of our foolish dreams.

 

Drawing and written by Maria Mak

Steed grazing in the reed - a poem for her beloved sis by Maria Mak

By Maria Mak - Sut... on July 4, 2014 - 10:51pm

Steed grazing in the reed...

steed grazing in the reed,

mist streaming from the ground, 

standing stone in the dark,

sobbing silent in the rain,

The lady with a flower ring...

By Maria Mak - Sut... on June 28, 2014 - 11:35pm

I will marry you in the favonian wind .
Let the seagull be our wedding pastor ,
And all the turtles be our ocean guests. Written by Maria Mak

@BHC Press

A Special Message to the World.

“As we start 2014, it is time that people understand that there is only one race on the Earth – the Human Race. Therefore, the artificial barriers and divisions that exist must be eliminated, for the World to live as One.

We are all going around together, and we must share a collective responsibility not only to protect the planet, but to make human existence one free of hunger, poverty, war and many of the other global issues.

Human consciousness needs to rise to this level of awareness for Human existence to attain a higher level. The fact that millions of children die from hunger and poverty every year does not paint a positive picture and negates human development, which seems to be measured solely by technological development. ” By AJA
