Freewind

Hey Guys, Its Halo(: First, I'm going to say that I have been working on a screenplay, and another project which I will post soon. I have mainly been writing my book that I cannot share...so I really don't have anything to post at this moment. But I thought some of you may be interested in reading a poem that I had entered in a contest, won, and got published two years back.

Freewind

With Kilke Beach under my horse,
A ride in Ireland is best of course!
My Irish Cob, Freewind her name,
A Spirited mare, full of force.
Black and white, afraid of her shame,
The splashing water she tries to tame.
Wet sand sticking to her hair,
My fingers hurt the cold is to blame.
Refreshing our souls is the salty air,
We're free of fear now, do we dare?
Here comes a log we decide to jump.
Up we fly, watch them stare!
Landing firmly with a thump.
Sharing a smile, our victorious trump.
No longer afraid we're over that bump!
Nope, no longer afraid we're over that hump.
-Halo grace

I also was curious if any of you wanted to join up with me and make a blog about something we have in common...thought it might be something fun to try =P just comment if ya wanna. First to comment(:

  1. Good job with the poem Halo. Do you really have an Irish Cob named Freewind?

    Making a blog with you sounds fun. What would it be about?

  2. Thanks! I love horses, but I don't have one=/ Someday I'll have one though(:
    I am not sure what I want to do the blog about yet...any ideas? I guess I was depending on collaborating with someone to come up with an idea=P

    Halo

  3. Ummm . . I'm thinking . . . all I can come up with at the moment is . . umm . . sorry, nothing.
    I'm in a sort of writing craze right now, so all I can think of at this moment is things connected to writing. Come to think of it another blog of stories and general writing would be fun. :oD

    Hope that helped :P

  4. Haha I know what you mean. Did you want to do the blog with me then? If you do(I came up with an idea), we could actually have it about two characters, (one for each of us=P) and then we could create a story around the characters. For example, two twins that got separated at birth and didn't even know it, but they both are blogging about their lives, when they find each other. Then they blog from that point as well. (taking turns) That is a very cliche example, but you get what I mean. It is like writing a story too, and thats how I came up with it. Just an idea=P

  5. Good idea! That sounds fun, writing a story through blog posts. I can't what to get started (excited giggle). Who starts it, you or me? And would this story be in a fictional world? You know, (thoughtful grin) that would be interesting. The characters could have different adventurers, or (coming back to earth) they may not have Blogger in fictional worlds. :P

    Have a blessed day

  6. I love the idea of a fictional world! How could the characters be realated? Do you think we should do the twin idea, they just don't know about each other yet? And yes, I like that idea of adventures! Who would blog first? It might have to depend on the characters we come up with. And then what would we title the blog?

    <3, Halo(:

  7. The twin idea sounds good. Maybe we are the only children of the king, and his evil brother (or some other relative) kills him and tacks over the country. We are smuggled away and split up, so as to hid us better, and we grow up not knowing who we are (what do you think, should we know?) or about each other. The new king is a cruel tyrant, and his still hunting us. Just an thought, (is it just me, or is this idea rather cliche, kinda reminds me of Star Wars):P.
    I don't mind blogging first, but if you want to do it, go ahead. A title? Hum, the trials of (name) and (name), or perhaps Adventurers in (country).

    I have to go now, there is a wedding I got to be at. ;D
    Have a blessed day

  8. I'll start it first, but I'll let you come up with the name...Does that sound okay? You can name the characters if you want as well...bc you might have to, to make the title. Haha. Hope you have fun at the wedding!(:

  9. Thanks! The wedding was beautiful, I'll try and post some pictures later. Your starting it? . . . That sounds good to me. :P Are you going to set up the blog for this, or am I?

    Have a blessed day

  10. I was just gonna set it up since I was gonna start it..but if your gonna come up with the name, I'll need that first. I can't wait for the pics! Weddings are very fun(:

    Halo=D

  11. Hmmm . . . let me see, . . Adventures in . . . Tarida. The name is subject to change. Feel free to edit the country name. You need a name for the blog right now, and we can always change the title when and if we come up with another one.
    Oh, by the way I'm putting the pictures on my blog vary soon.

    Have a blessed day

  12. I looked up Tarida, and it means: Ancient vessel used in the Mediterranean for carrying implements of war. In Spanish. So perhaps this could be a ship, and when someone goes aboard and down under the dock, they enter another world (Tarida). So maybe The King of Tarida is killed by his brother, and his brother takes over the country(like u suggested) so the pregnant queen leaves Tarida and into Earth to have her babies somewhere safe from their uncle. They are left at the orphanage with a note for each to return to the ship on their 15th birthday to regain the throwns. They MUST wait for each other on the ship though, and not venture in alone, if they are split up. Which indeed they are, at age 2. So they DO know about each other, but don't remember each other. Then from their 15th birthday is their adventure gaining back the throwns. So... "Tarida Ship"? What do you think about that idea, and name? Also, what do you want your twin's name to be?

    Halo=D

  13. Wow, I wasn't expecting that. I thought I came up with a totally new word, but this way is nice. :) Your idea is really good, this story is getting better and better.

    Have a blessed day

  14. Sorry about my last comment, I didn't answer all your questions. So I'll do that now. Ok, the name. Good idea about putting Tarida in it, do you think the title should tell what Tarida is to the characters. They see it as a way to another world, or don't they know that part of their history? If they don't, just forget what I just said. ;) Anyway, on to the next question, what is my characters name? Ah . . I have a question, would these girls have ordinary names, or did their mother name them before she died? If it's an ordinary name I think my name would be Regan. If it's an . . unordinary name? . . hmm . . I will have to think on that one a bit more. :)

    Have a blessed day

  15. Well...I was thinking maybe they don't really know about their history, and why they are going to meet on ship, until they get there. Im kinda thinking that their mom had names for them--but they don't learn of them until they reach Tarida. So Regan is fine for now. I am picking Frida because it is an Icelandic name for Peace. I want her to be adopted by Icelandic parents and taken there. You can have Regan be taken anywhere, but Im going to say the orphanage is in Seattle. Okay--I am going to go ahead and make the blog now. We decided on taridaship.blogspot.com right? If not--my bad xD But that is what I'm making it because I want to go ahead and make it. Talk to you soon!(:

    Halo(:
