The drawing of my childhood

The drawing of my childhood

I’ve drawn for you a house

a house I many times imagined

replicating long-forgotten traits

once so familiar to my hand


It’s a house of love and brightness

a house full of life and plants

its walls are of well-cut stones draped in white

and its roof is tiled in red

with little turrets where you can take the wind

and watch the garden live without interfering

and write and paint in the quietness you wished for


The trees are tall and they have a life of their own

they’re home to birds and worms and other creatures

but shhh, I won’t tell you more about them

you have to come to see by yourself

there’s a little pond too with water lilies

and many bushes and wild flowers


Your room has a large creamy bed

that has been specially tailored for you

To find sleep as soon as you touch its sheets

and grant all the dreams your heart desires

It has large windows giving on the four sides of the garden

and several balconies with trees and shrubs already yielding refreshing fruits

and many floors and stairways

some apparent and the others secret


Your room is not a normal, boring, confining room

It is a world where to dwell and dream

and free your imagination

turning into the child you once were

this sensitive soul marveling before each mushroom and each tiny beetle

and finding magic in every little thing


I fell in love with this sensitive girl I’ve recognized within you

remembering I always loved her and looked for her, even when I didn’t know

and this house is my present for her

will you let her come play with me?

    • Hello Erik,

      I agree with Chantal about the house in which to dream and to fall asleep on bedsheets that could “grant all the dreams your heart desires”.

      This seems to be a somewhat nostalgic and retrospective writing about your excellent childhood painting. Is the “her” your twin flame or twin soul?

      By the way, I have mentioned where you can find SeaTurtle’s writings at

      • Dear SoundEagle,
        Yes I’ve read your comments, and no I’ve not given them the time and attention they deserve. But it will come, in due time. I have a natural sympathy for you, who you are, what you write, what you create. You make me smile. I like you.

        I use interchangeably the terms “twin soul” and “twin flames”. This mysterious girl I am not naming shares the same soul with me, a soul that contains two flames, two hearts, hers and mine. I also call her my faerie princess.

        Chantal instead is my sister soul, or faerie sister. And her twin soul is my faerie brother.

        Did I reply to your question?

        Have a great evening dear SeaTurtle!

        I think that your playfulness indicates a faerie origin as well. A common symptom is adults who still like to play around with words and colors like child and make of that their work and pastime (yes, I’ve read and enjoyed your about section!).

        A pity you don’t share more, perhaps in private the mundane details of your person, because I like to put things back in contest! But at the same time I respect that will of yours, and there’s surely a valid reason behind, and an interesting lesson offered to me.

        You’ve already helped me, in a way.

      • And I’m going to send your blog to a friend of mine whose name is Thomas. He’s also a soul of many interests and many pursuits. He’s not a blogger so probably he’ll be another silent reader who dwells in the shades.

        • Let’s hope that at least some of the contents on SoundEagle’s website(s) could draw Thomas out of the shades or shadows into the love and light . . . . . . 🙂

          • Dear SoundEagle,
            May I reciprocate sending you some of my watercolor paintings put in music with a mysterious artist named Quetzal whom identity I may not reveal?
            Ideally I’d have liked to have one of her music accompanying each of my poems, but she’s still a bit shy of her art.
            And I would like to ask you your take on who SeaTurtle is for you. Is she just a randon commentor of your blog, or is she more? Do you know her in real life? Does she belong to your faerie garden?

            • Hi Erik,

              Please be informed that SoundEagle has just become the second being to subscribe to your YouTube channel, thereby instantly increasing the number of your followers by 100 percent! 😉

              Is Quetzal’s music always as simple as the one that you use in the said YouTube video? Perhaps some of my musical compositions might appeal to Quetzal, the mysterious and shy artist.

              SeaTurtle remains known only or mainly in the province of SoundEagle. Given the large amount of detailed writings (in the form of comments) that you have already read, SeaTurtle is undoubtedly far more present, visible, familiar and less covert, mystifying or enigmatic than the mysterious and shy Quetzal as well as your mysterious girl who is also your faerie princess. 😉
