Dead Silence

come Closer

YOU. Yes, you.
Now let me look at you
My brown eyes, dead
but they are open still

My lips don’t part
Not a sound, not a word,
Just a breath of flowers
To cover this corner

Blue, purple, pink, red
Golden rays of sunshine,
Can’t show it on my face;
Can’t contain it in my mind

Make sense of these colours
Or would you call it nonsense?
Call it what you will,
This EXPLOSION in my silence

Comeback Update

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re all doing fine. Thank you for being so patient. As you have known, it was a long time since my last post…. but I’m back.

Thank you all for being with my on this writing journey. God has blessed me well while I was away. Short update: The Cricket’s Love Song was long-listed for the #Wattys2018 awards but didn’t make it into the short list. That’s okay. Making it into the long list was already very much a reward. Congratulations, 2018 Wattys Shortlisters. Best of luck for the next round.

Being away from writing this long has definitely given me some new perspectives and time to think about what I’ve been doing. So stay tuned and I’ll be back very soon with something for you.

Cheers,

Angel

Thank you *high five!*

Made it into the Wattys 2018 Longlist

I can’t believe it! THE CRICKET’S LOVE SONG is on the Wattys 2018 longlist. There were 151,767 entries this year and this story made it to the top 784 in the longlist. Even without getting into the shortlist or winning, this in itself will be a memorable achievement in my writing journey.

That’s all folks. Thank you all so so much and see you next time. God bless you all.
