Random Ramblings: Appreciation

The world is busy as it constantly turns

With no time to think, listen or feel

Always in a hurry

With nothing to spare

But now I choose to stop and breathe

To smell the roses, to feel the breeze, to savor the moment

And to listen to people

Today I appreciate


Esteemed Poets



We do not see each other

But with words we bond together

I cherish each and everyone of you

As you mean the world to me

They have build me up

Enhanced my creativity

They made me see the real me

Now I say to you

A word of encouragement

You are cared for, noticed and important

Find that spark that ignites the light

To find your voice and to speak your mind

To write a poem or to say a line.

Because for today I appreciate.

Pink Notes: The Ripple Effect

These past few days seemed to be way too HOT on Twitterdom and it all started all because of the TINGLES. So that happened and everybody felt it at one point or another thus the ripple effect.

And then came the acronyms of F*CK*RY which I for one thought is a challenging word to form. Temperature was escalating that LYING NAKED seemed to be like a good idea. But that just lead to SEDUCTION and mind you that was just the beginning…

Then an untitled post unofficially called 55 came about and yes I think the temperature increased 55 degrees further after reading this single descriptive words but when entwined together are like a ball of fire.

Oh this is where it got really hot and heavy F set ablaze everybody and it got every one’s heart raising, some may have been flustered or better yet #flourished (the f poem & flourish read in that order makes a very deadly combo– ok that was a shameless plug for you D lol).

And if that was not enough a PLAY DATE might be in order. Or if you want something to calm your nerves a numerous forms of HUG  is a suitable option. There are also #poemup tweets by @YrMonAmi that can make you swoon and feel your heart melt.

So enough with the breathers and on with the action. A SEDUCTION PART DEUX  is in order to get the ball rolling. If that did not make you HORNY I don’t know what else will.

So I sort of made up this story as they were a FIGMENT of my imagination. I did not know if it made sense but it was fun just to tell about it.

Love Lots,

Joan Gillen

To the #esteemedpoets you are all as wonderful as your work and thank you for supporting #poemup. 

Random Ramblings: Figment

We give each other long intense kisses

You go down to my neck and give me short sweet kisses

As I breathe on your skin

You touch me underneath my clothes

Caressing the small of my back

Slowly you unravel my clothes and everything beneath it

As we continue…

You give me those sweet kisses

I caress the skin underneath your shirt and slowly take it off

You start playing with my breasts making them hard

Then you touch my lips below and feel them wet

I felt the bulge and pull it out

I beg for you to slip it in

With slow gentle strokes

You hear me grasp and moan

Make your moves steady

And then faster as you hit the right spot

I press my fingers nails on your back

As I say your name under my breath

My stomach starts to flutter

As you try to reach in further

Random Ramblings: Hope In Love

There will come a time

Wherein I can be with someone

Who will love me unconditionally

With no exceptions and conditions

Love that will stand the test of time

Love that has no boundaries

Love that is simple but meaningful

Love that has perspective

Guest Ramblings: The Real Me

Hey Everyone!

I got another poem but this time it was sent anonymously. I am so moved by the positivity of #poemup and I hope it continues. I asked permission and he/ she agreed to me to post this for everyones reading pleasure. It’s quite a sad poem but I think a lot of people can identify to it.

Whoever you are I hope you get to write more. And I would be more than happy to post them here in the blog.

Love Lots,

Joan Gillen


THE REAL ME by Anonymous

Why do I feel this way?

What’s wrong with me?

Insecure and inadequate

Why can’t you see?

I put on my mask

A happy smile is what I wear

I wonder silently

Does anyone care?

The life of the party

As I flirt, flutter and flee

Behind the fake smile

Do you see the real me?

Press This: Penelope Jones

One of the new members of the Esteemed Poets known as @Penelope_Prose in Twitter has mentioned me in her latest blogpost:

My new Twitter Avi means something...

My new Twitter Avi means something….

Thank you so much my dear. You didn’t have to I was glad I was helping you spread awareness about Breast Cancer and now I understand why it was so close to your heart. The AVI was the least I could do.

Your poems and all of your writings are wonderful… you do have a gift! Thank you also for agreeing to be part of #poemup. Hopefully we can encourage more people to write :)

To everyone… follow her blog and on Twitter… for  the mean time you can reach her as @DaPinkjuju and also use the hashtag #freebadpenny Twitter Jail is being mean so let us help her restore her usual account.

Let’s all aboard the train to #Naughtyville with Ms. Jones… Choo! Choo!

Love Lots,

THE ONE by Hayley (@SummerPanties)

Furtive glances

From under long lashes

Knowing smile

Are you the one?

Drawn to you

Like a moth to flame

Do you feel the same?

Are you the one?

Distance closing

Heart, pulse now pounding

Electricity spiking

Are you the one?

Skin now touching

Rhythmic movement

Tastes sensation

Two become one

Forever holding

Time not moving

Insides glowing

You are the one

Ramblings: Introducing Guest Ramblings

Hi Everyone,

Ever since I started #poemup with the help from the ESTEEMED POETS I have been getting good feedbacks. Thank you everyone! With that, I am starting GUEST RAMBLINGS wherein people who have written can send their works and then I shall publish it in my blog. Hopefully more people will be encouraged to write, find their voice and speak their mind.

For those interested you can send it via DM at my Twitter account or email it at pinkbonnetgirl@gmail.com. Looking forward to seeing more of your writings… #poemup and write on!

Love Lots,

Joan Gillen


Pink Notes: Poem Up and Write On

I know you have been seeing some #poemup hashtags and AVI around Twitterdom today and to be honest this started out from a casual conversation with Mr. Blake and it evolved into something bigger an idea which I think has a great and positive message.

#poemup encourages everyone to write may it be in a form of a poem, essay, short story, fan fiction, letter anything as long as it gets you to write. 

A lot of people take for granted the power of words. It is a great form of release and expression. It stimulates creativity and it is therapeutic. Poetry also has a positive effect on people as we can see with our community on Twitter. We get to interact, share our thoughts and support one another.

I am very fortunate enough to have come across these three ESTEEMED POETS and their words made such a difference in my life. Once in a while I get to talk to them and they have always encouraged me to write. And they do this also for others. So with their help we are doing #poemup.

Its really simple all you have to do is every time you tweet about poems or writings just add the hashtag #poemup and well if you can reblog or share about the initiative then that would be good as well. As long as we get to spread the word, create awareness and encouragement.

The AVIs are additional ways to spread the word and if you want one I’d be more than willing to assist you with it.

To Darwin, Deidre and Beth thank you for your time and help. This is nothing without you guys and you are such an inspiration and I think I say that in behalf of everyone who reads your wonderful prose.

So let’s start to #poemup and write!

Love Lots,

Joan Gillen
