Strokes Of Passion

Strokes of Passion‘ – A small poetry collection by Haunting Angel

Hi everyone,

How’s everyone doing? 🙂

Thank you so much for all the support and love you’ve given my poetry so far. This was a long time coming but I’m so happy it’s finally here. I’ve decided to gather up a handful of poems from what I’ve posted on this blog so far and put it in a Wattpad book for those of you who prefer that platform. I have arranged these poems into a thematic series that explores the ups and downs between losing one’s voice and the triumph of finding the creative power within.

From wingless birds to creative masters – voices can be silenced but there is nothing that can stop wild imagination when it strikes.

You’ve all been wonderful people and I don’t think I would have the guts to do this without your enthusiasm. So thank you once again and please enjoy. There will be more to come so please follow and stay tuned for more updates.

God bless and have a nice day!

Yours truly,
Angel

Pappa’s Love

A poem by Amalia Abbar – Happy father’s day 2018 🙂

twinkling eyes,
dimpled smile,
he is wise,
with a style.

he’s my king,
(I, the crown),
loves to sing,
not to frown.

Pappa’s love,
is the best,
like a glove,
warms with zest.

Again slithering, it arrives

Serpent with temptation,

Offer hard, impossible to resist

Us, consume fruit; fruit consume us

Resist, it’s futile; choke on the offer

Temptation: the belly-bulging serpent

arrives but will he win again?

Claire Jones: Ranked!

And A Brief Introduction to Krampus

rankedcj

Hi everyone, another one of my stories have been ranked on Wattpad. Claire Jones is #14 in the Krampus genre and I couldn’t have done it without you. So thank you, thank you all.  🙂

I think that Wattpad had just recently allowed ranking even in the smaller genres/categories and I’m glad that they did. Personally, I am not too hung up on ranks but I have to admit that it does make the Wattpad game more fun and possibly more encouraging for new writers.

Truth is, I haven’t updated Claire Jones in a long while and my first episode for Claire Jones involved Krampus. If you’re not familiar with Krampus, he’s this guy:

Greetings from Krampus
A 1900s greeting card reading ‘Greetings from Krampus!’

A popular half-goat, half-demon among the folks of Eastern Europe. He comes around the Christmas season to punish misbehaving children and is sometimes depicted as a companion of Saint Nicholas.

In the Claire Jones episode Christmas Troubles, he is rumoured to punish those who ended up on Santa’s Naughty List on the night of Christmas. When Claire realizes that there were no presents from Liefheid (Santa’s brother) under the tree for her, she assumes that she’s ended up on the Naughty list and has to literally face her demon.

If you’d like to check out the rest of the episode, here’s a link to it: https://www.wattpad.com/242409079-claire-jones-christmas-troubles-chapter-1

Meanwhile hold on, sit tight, and enjoy. There’s a happy ending to this madness. I promise. 😉 Thank you all once again and have a nice day! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Ranked!

Thank you so much 🙂

Thank you, God. Yesterday, I had a big surprise. The Cricket’s Love Song is #10 in the Animal Kingdom genre on Wattpad . This is the first time any of my stories have been given a rank and I have all of you to thank for that. This wouldn’t be possible without your love and support and I am truly honoured.

If you haven’t checked this out yet, I hope that you do. It’s a short story about a cricket and his quest for true love. Clicking on the picture will take you to the story. Thank you all once again and God bless. 🙂
